    The Ghostbusters are called to the Soviet Union where they com up against a Russian legend known as a Vodyani.  When their throwers only prove to empower the creature, the Ghostbusters need to find a way to get creative in this strange land to stop it, or end up looking like the fuzzy hats the Russians wear.

“The Dark Side of the Sewer!”
    The Sanitation Department has called the Ghostbusters to deal with a growing ghost problem in the city sewers.  They find a ghost nearby and chase it down into the tunnels below the street where they learn the recent infestation is the result of Peter’s carelessness in equipment maintenance.  With such a high intensity of PKE energy, they have to find a way to blast through it all in order to capture the resulting manifestations.
