The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had ooze. He-Man and The Masters of the Universe had a slim pit! But perhaps with the character of Slimer being added into the mix Ghostbusters perhaps was the most famous toyline that involved slime over all!
See when you’re a kid you want whatever those bastard advertise on Saturday mornings and for one reason or another the idea of a “slime”, which was marketed to the masses as Ghostbusters Ecto-Plazm may have been one glorious mess that any action figure loving kid couldn’t live without!!…But sadly I had to 🙁
See, I was raised by my Grandparents and they were very very cool. If I wanted a toy bad enough, sooner or later they’d get it for me. Sure, I’m not above admitting that from time to time I may have had to cry my way to getting something, hell I was a kid that’s how that goes. But no amount of pouting, no amount of tears, no anything could ever talk these fine people into getting me some Ecto-Plazm.
Where they afraid I’d eat it?? Where they worried I’d get it stuck in the carpet or just all out make a mess? I’m not sure, but I never did get my Ecto-Plazm (or any other toy slim actually). But the fact I never had Ecto-Plazm bugged me the most. It was introduced in the movie, Bill Murray got it dumped all over him, it was used almost weekly in the cartoon and to spite it being waved in my face every Saturday morning while watching cartoons they never gave in and I never got the stuff.
I’m ashamed to admit that the closes I ever got to it was when they broke down and got me the Ecto-Plazm bubble bath that I was forbidden to remove from the bathroom.
But at least I got a cool Slimer toy from it right?
Any of you ever get to enjoy this glorious stuff??
