“Blood Bank Bust!”
    A vampire is loose in a blood bank, and the Ghostbusters are called in to investigate.  They arrive too late as the entire supply is dried up, and it turns out their PKE Meter won’t work in tracking the ancient evil.  So while Peter and Egon investigate in the traditional way, Ray and Winston offer to give some blood and help the manager start to replenish his supply.   It’s just too bad it turns out the manager himself is the vampire!  With their friends strung up and their streams useless, Egon and Peter have to find a way to stop the vamp and save their friends in time.

“Grudge Gremlin!”
    The Ghostbusters have been noticing strange trends in their mail.  Egon detects PKE on their letters, prompting Winston to get to the bottom of this.  Checking out their latest mail arrivals, Winston finds the offending Grudge Gremlin.  He’s ready to teach it never to mess with a Ghostbuster’s mail again!

    Vamping about vampires.

“The Boy Who Cried Ghoul!”
    For the last two weeks, 9-year old Paul MacDonald had called up the Ghostbusters at the same time every day reporting a ghost.  And every day, they head over to his place only to find nothing.  Today, Peter has had enough, and upon Paul’s calling he lays into him with all the built-up irritation of the last few weeks.  Unfortunately, Peter ends up with egg on his face when the line goes dead, validating Paul’s claim of a real ghost this time!

“Which Face is Witch?”
    The Ghostbusters are about to be interviewed on TV and are waiting for their make-up to be applied.  Peter mentions how the place is supposedly haunted by the make-up girl who used to work there, believed to be a witch by the uncanny ways she could make people look good.  The Ghostbusters get to experience her work first hand when she appears and hideously alters their faces!  With their new deformities, they worry about blasting her in case the effects become permanent.  First, they need to find a way to get her to fix them…then, they’ll blast her.

“Blimey!  It’s Slimer!”
    The Ghostbusters get a reminder why they don’t usually bring Slimer along on busts.
