Professor Barthes is a professor with the Department of Philosophy at New York State University.
While in his office recording a lecture on myth, Professor Barthes met the Sphinx. He didn't answer the riddle correctly and was drained of his brain waves. A janitor called up the Ghostbusters. The team eventually found Barthes. After taking readings and samples, they took Barthes back to the Firehouse for more testing up in the lab. He was hooked up to the Brain Wave Monitor.
- Professor Barthes shares the same surname as the 20th century philosopher Roland Barthes.
