Strazinski's Magic Cabinet [1] is a vanishing prop cabinet that was actually a dimensional gateway to a realm ruled by the demon Gorgar when the secret word "Goomba" is spoken. [2] [3]

HistoryEdit

Origins unknown, runes on the Magic Cabinet are definitely pre-Babylonian and possibly Crypto-Akkadian or Kabbalisitic Lemurian, Pre-Deluge Period. [4] [5] [6] At some point in the early 1990s, The Great Strazinski acquired the Magic Cabinet and added to his act. Unaware of its true nature, Strazinski kept losing his assistants while performing his vanishing cabinet act. He hired the Ghostbusters to investigate it. Egon Spengler translated the runes on the cabinet and determined it was a gateway to another dimension probably activated by a sonic activator like a secret word. [7]

While the Ghostbusters stood inside the Magic Cabinet, Strazinsky recalled the secret word "Goomba" and blurted it out loud. The Ghostbusters were instantly teleported to a nether dimension ruled by a demon named Gorgar. After the Ghostbusters and Gorgar found a way to New York, they accidentally opened an outward flow of Nether Energy that altered the landscape. Ray Stantz took Gorgar to the Magic Cabinet and activated it once more. The cabinet created an inward flow of Nether Energy that reversed the effects of the outward flow and seemingly transported Gorgar back to his own dimension. [8] The cabinet, however, blew up as a result.

Thus, when Ray opened the gateway back to Gorgar's world, he set up an inward flow to reverse the affect of the outward flow."
