Beetlejuice has been one of those higher class ghosts that have been a thorn in our Belt Gizmos since the early 1990s. For the longest time that ghost who talks a lot had been oddly silent, going off the protection grid. Recently Beetle…resurfaced in Great Britain.

Where Bee.. had an unfortunate run in with the Conductors of the Metaphysical Examination North East.

However, fortunately for Ghostbusters International franchises across the global hemispheres the Conductors of The Meta, er Ghostbusters filmed their latest case file.

While Rich was still reviewing Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, (Ecto-Containment) kids at the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards helped Ghostbusters: ATC win some awards!

Ghostbusters: Answer The Call was chosen favorite movie of the year! While that would be cool enough, kids voted Melissa McCarthy (Dr. Abby Yates) as their favorite movie actress. Chris Hemsworth (Kevin) was voted as their favorite movie actor.

That’s right Ghostbusters is better than both Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars: Rogue One! 😀

Ghosts From Our Past Prop Cover

In Ghostbusters: Answer The Call Drs of particle physicists Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert wrote a book titled Ghosts From Our Past: Both Literally and Figuratively: A Study Of The Paranormal. (GBI Blog Post: December 19, 2015)

To tie into the new in-universe of Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, author Andrew Shaffer wrote the real book. Which had a hardback and more common (we think) paperback version. Its cover (probably because it had to) lets ghostheads know its a Ghostbusters: Answer The Call movie related book.

For most people that aren’t ghostheads that’s good enough. When you’re a ghosthead, good enough is well not good enough. That’s where the NYC Ghostbusters come in.

They created an original prop replica cover which can be used with the movie books or another book if one wanted to just display it among their collection.

Ghostheads can either download the regular cover or an oversized cover from the Ghosts From Our Past website.

gbs16papajohnscard

It might seem a little unusual to associate a national pizza chain with Ghostbusters. As in the past they would have gone together because of dialogue in Ghostbusters II. Just like in the 80s, bustin’ makes Ghostbusters hungry. Even if you aren’t a Ghostbuster, you probably at times enjoy eating pizza while watching Ghostbusters!

Today Business Wire, Papa John’s, and Ghostbusters announced a delicious partnership. Papa John’s pizza will not only be part of next month Ghostbusters (2016), they’ll have a limited product offer and Ghostbusters (2016) related pizza box.
