Day 8 of the Halloween Countdown: Here there be monsters!


By Shawn Robare




Honestly, I’m not quite feeling the Halloween-y with these Real Ghostbusters cels, so to remedy that a bit, lets skips past more cast members and get to some of the nifty monsters from the show!  These rat-like subway creatures are some pretty gnarly customers.  I think they’re a nice example of the non-ghost cryptozological wonders that our four heroes battled against on a regular basis in the cartoon…





As for interesting aspects to this first cel, I really dig the pencil under drawing that I scored with it.   I’m not sure if the under drawing is hinting at the next drawing (which I suspect), or referencing the previous drawing and cel, but I love the alternate view of the creatures with their sharp-toothed mouths all agape.  The creatures sure seem a heck of a lot more fierce that way to boot.





Here’s another cel of the same creatures from a later scene…







There, that’s a bit more in the mood I’d say…

    I loved this cartoon when I was younger. These cels are great, you got great representation of the characters on all of them.
