  • The toy looks to be based on the Ghost Tether from Real Ghostbusters episode"Partners in Slime".
  • Despite being labelled "as seen in Ghostbusters II" this toy does not seem directly based on any known equipment from the film, though it could be seen as very loosely derived from the Slime Scooper.
  • The device can be seen being held by Peter on the Ecto-1A Vehicle front box illustration.
