PlotEdit

Three words for you: Zombie Stay-Puft! The Ghostbusters rush to implement a plan that may solve both their poltergeist plague and their zombie problem at the same time... but saving the city won't do any good if they can't also keep a newly freed and angry Mr. Stay-Puft from destroying it!

TriviaEdit

  • The "Cross the Streams" strategy is mentioned but Egon advocates against it.
  • Peter refers to Stay Puft as Humpty Dumpty, the title character of a nursery rhyme about an egg that sat on a wall, then fell and broke into pieces.
  • At the end, it is asked if the team should stock up on garlic to deal with Britt, a popular culture weakness of vampires.
  • New York City Hall and the Mayor are mentioned by Peter at the end. [3] [4]
