Hulu To Stream Extreme Ghostbusters

Don’t cross your streaming services.



This may be extremely (really Rich?) exciting for fans of the Extreme Ghostbusters. In particular if you’re a ghosthead and live in Region 1 where it isn’t available on DVD. Hulu is set to stream season 1 (the only season) of Extreme Ghostbusters on Tuesday, March 1, 2016.

Personally I haven’t used Hulu in years, long before their was a plus version. I don’t know if the entire season will be available as it could be on other streaming services. Or it’ll just be a premium show. If a ghosthead knows or we find out, I can update this post.

Also as its been a while, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 21, 2015) Sony Pictures streaming service Crackle has continued adding episodes of The Real Ghostbusters to stream. The last episode is season 1’s A Fright At The Opera.

Paul Feig Confirms Ecto Cooler’s Return



The momentum for Ecto Cooler continues to build as some people are receiving a product sample Hi-C Ecto Cooler 2016, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 19, 2016) and samples have been tasted.

When Ghostbusters (2016) director Paul Feig was asked was asked by Alex Lobo via Twitter about Ecto Cooler’s 2016 release, we all received the following response:


I don’t know when sooner in relation to Ghostbusters (2016) release in July. I do feel at the end of February its too soon for Coke/Hi-C to release anything related to marketing. Maybe after March 3, 2016 at the earliest once Ghostbusters (2016) first trailer (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, February 14, 2016) is released.

Hostess Key Lime Slime Twinkies


As I’m sure most know these days, Twinkies and Ghostbusters have synergy. If you’re a ghosthead you can’t quite have one without the other. During the rise of Gozer, my employers had some bad habits. For Dr. Egon Spengler, it was snack foods. During a key moment to explain “the bad” they and NYC were on the verge on, Dr. Spengler had a Hostess Twinkie. Coincidental or not it made for a great analogy about what was to come, a 100ft marshmallow man from another snack food empire, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Company.

Unfortunately their was never a cross promotional tie-in, like with X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Ghostbusters, Hostess Twinkies, and Stay-Puft’s marshmallows became the “best of friends.”

During Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary I tweeted Hostess to ask and to have a little fun if we’d have a Ghostbusters Twinkie promotion. They had a great sense of humor about it and were open to working with Sony/Columbia. At the time I’d hope we’d see something for Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary. That was before we knew about the next chapter in the Ghostbusters film franchise. Continue reading “Hostess Key Lime Slime Twinkies”

Potential Ecto Cooler Product Sample Update

New information about yesterday’s Ecto-Cooler news.


Yesterday I woke up to new Ecto Cooler news. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 18, 2016) Last night as I was exiting the internet for the night their was some clarification and an update about the seeming evolution of Hi-C Ecto-Cooler.

The mystery can from the eBay seller naturally received attention about the auction. As I was preparing this post I saw it (the auction, not my site 😉 was trending on Facebook. Since it could be about me 😀 I saw my post among the feed. That’s cool.

Nearing bedtime the seller’s auction was back up with added information. Apparently the can belonged to a friend who use to work in a marketing company. However, not in a long time. From an outside point of view I could see why some related company might still send that person a product sample for upcoming marketing. My issue with the seller…

Potential Ecto Cooler Product Sample

Rich with good reason questions the authenticity of this product.



Since last I wrote about Ecto-Cooler (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 27, 2015) possibly returning things had been quiet about our favorite ’80s citrus drink. Until today. Practically the first Ghostbusters news item I woke up to was physical proof of a new, Ecto-Cooler can. However, this proof comes from an eBay auction.
