“Slimer’s Unbirthday”
    It’s Peter’s birthday, and all Slimer wants to do is join in.  But, he takes it exceptionally hard when Peter kicks him out.  The next day, the Ghostbusters discover Slimer is the ghostly version of depressed and try to figure out why and how to help out their little green friend.

“The Ghoul That Had a Crush on Peter!”
    Pressure-composite Gestalts are entering cans of Smacksie’s Cherry Crush soda and terrorizing anyone who opens the cans.  Egon, Peter and Winston track the source of the disturbance to the factory in Pittsburgh and begin their investigation.  However, with thousands of cans full of soda at the Gestalt’s command, this bust could turn out very sticky.

“Fast Food!”
    Ray and Egon ponder the secret of Slimer’s bottomless stomach.  Just where does all that food end up?

“Demon Drink!”
    A construction worker unearths a bottle full of liquid and is compelled to drink it, turning him into a monster.  The bottle then mysteriously changes hand, transforming more normal people into monsters until finally it ends up in the hands of Ray!  Will he drink it too or stop the monsters?

“Blimey!  It’s Slimer!”
    Slimer is apartment hunting the only way a ghost can.

    At the end of the story, in order to execute the joke they’ve set up with the repeated mentions of Peter’s favorite ad for the soda, Peter is said to have his own apartment.  However, as this takes place in the RGB-verse and well before Ghostbusters 2, Peter should be residing in the firehouse with the rest of the Ghostbusters.
