Sammy K. Ferret [1] was a cartoon character that Ray Stantz and Slimer really liked. [2]

HistoryEdit

On a dark and stormy night, at midnight, a mysterious supernatural force struck the Ghostbusters' television and turned Sammy into a ghost. Sammy broke loose in the real world causing all sorts of mischief. The longer he remained in the real world, the more real and dangerous he became. [3] In his wake, a trail of cartoon manifestations spread like a viral epidemic. Since he wasn't bound by the laws of physics, he seemed to be impossible to trap. [4] Ray devised an ambush scenario: Slimer would make a full capacity audience laugh and attract Sammy. The Ghostbusters would then trap him. However, the Proton Streams went directly through Sammy and he fled the scene.

Undaunted, Egon Spengler deduced if they could get Sammy mad enough, he would revert to his true form and become trappable. [5] [6] They commandeered the Lenny Jason Show and repeatedly taunted him and turned the crowd against him. Sure enough, Sammy showed his true form and was trapped. His last words before he was captured were "I'm still the funniest! Hahahahaha!" Some of Sammy's after effects were not immediately dissipated and remained for some time, such as Ecto-1's transmogrification into a clown car. [7]

PersonalityEdit

Sammy K. Ferret is very mischievous and egocentric, just like most people would expect from a cartoon character. If someone gets more attention than him, he can't resist the challenge of showing him or her up. [8] [9]

PowersEdit

Sammy K. Ferret was a powerful ghost, he could warp reality, and treat the real world like a cartoon, and was only bound by cartoon physics, meaning he was next to impossible to capture. [10] Even proton beams passed through him, until he exposed his true colors.
