Return of the 31 Days of Monsters, Day 14: The Ansar Mystery…


By Shawn Robare

For all of those joining me for the first time, welcome to the Return of the 31 Days of Monsters Halloween countdown here at Branded in the 80s!  I had a blast last year, so again I’m counting down 31 of my favorite monsters from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon.  All of these monsters come straight from my vintage animation cel collection, and my wife and I tried our best to put them in a not-so-scary to really-freaking-creepy kind of order with the creepiest falling on All Hallows Eve.

So today’s beasty is actually the first of a two-part duo.  I’m going to play the mysterious host and just say that this guy’s name is Ansar…

He might look familiar, but a bit hard to place.   Let me give you a hint, look for a clue in his hair…

Come back tomorrow for the reveal of this guy’s backstory, as well as his other half when I reveal another Real Ghostbusters monster animation cel!

Also, if you feel inclined, I would love everyone to spread the word about the Return of the 31 Days of Monsters countdown, so hit up those social networks and tell a friend (my twitter handle is smurfwreck, and I’m on the Facebook as well.)  If you’d like to read more Halloween-y goodness, you can also click on the Halloween Archive link to the left (the banner with King Kong), as well as heading on over to the Countdown to Halloween to check out lists of a bunch of other sites participating in this year’s Halloween blogging event…

    I remember this episode. He makes for a pretty great looking monster.

    Not sure why, but of all of them so far this one disturbs me the most..not sure if it\’s the color or the weird shoulder rolls…:)
