Within 30 days of Ghostbusters original theatrical release Mark Lister and Jim Garvey from Swissvale, Pennsylvania spent $10,000 USD ($24,018 USD in 2018) to start and license the first Ghostbusters Fan Club. (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014)
On that very day (in Summer 1984 or June 8, 2014) the certificate of Anti-Paranormal Proficiency surfaced. The Official Membership Card hadn’t in hi-res glory until Groundhog Day 2018! Ghosthead Lance Dobersek tweeted the following:
Ghostbusters premiered to us regular folks (non celebs) on June 8, 1984. In recent years unofficially and officially the date has become Ghostbusters Day. Naturally its even more official during a milestone year for the Ghostbusters franchise. As ghostheads, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and their partners honor and celebrates not only Ghostbusters past, its present as well.
What can we all be part of for Ghostbusters Day this year? Sony Pictures Entertainment has a handy press release.
With the edit going well and our next trip fast approaching we are getting ready to show a little more footage! The kind folks at Wizard World Philadelphia on 2nd-5th June at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre have allowed us to attend their convention. We will be running a panel talk on Friday 3rd at 3pm Room 119AB. We’ll be showing 10 minutes of footage and on hand to answer questions about the documentary.
Anthony and Claire Bueno have been working on the first Ghostbusters documentary, Cleanin’ Up The Town during the last 8 years! In a year where Ghostbusters (2016) will be premiering in theaters globally Bueno Productions is nearing completion on a long awaited Ghostbusters documentary!
In a way to give “Cleanin'” a well deserved release and to retain ownership they’ve launched a Kickstarter that as of this post has 129 backers and has raised $17,669 USD. Continue reading →
In January we wrote about how Joe Nonostante, an Italian ghosthead had created an unofficial, yet extensive fan made Tobin’s Spirit Guide. (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) During the first week of February we updated that blog post with news that Joe’s Tobin’s Spirit Guide could be translated into English. Continue reading →
Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante spent a year (what were you doing?) by not only translating Tobin’s Spirit Guide to Italian, (that has to be easy right?) adding pretty much every ghost from The Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, with additional entries from Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Making this the largest and most complete Tobin’s Spirit Guide to date at 496 pages.
Ghostbusters Italy, tell us more. Translation* to follow after the original Italian.

“In the year 1984, New York City starting experiencing strange and unexplained occurrences. Although it was thought unbelievable at the time – the City was – in truth, being taken over by spirits from another world. A world only rumored to exist, but not proven to be true.”
“It took four dedicated and knowledgeable human beings – armed with superior scientific knowledgable – laser guns and a giant ghost busting machine to rid the city of its “other world” creatures.”
We were about 84% sure we’ve sold Ghostbusters scarves before. It’s possible, we couldn’t think of one off the top of our heads. Uh, no puns intended. If their was never an official one, then we don’t blame Supernova Costuming for making one. Hey, is that a space reference or a Oasis homage? Continue reading →
