You can't have a Ghostbusters movie without ghosts. If there weren’t ghosts jogging through New York or menacingly shoving hot dogs in their faces, you’d just have four guys sitting around in brown uniforms quipping. Everyone knows the more popular ghosts in Ghostbusters, but what about the ghosts that don’t have a voice? This list of the all the Ghostbusters ghosts finally gives you a chance to speak up for the lesser known ghosts who you might prefer to Slimer or Zuul.

One of the most interesting things about every Ghostbusters ghost is how little the rules of traditional ghost movies matter to any of them. In the first film, you’ve got a demon dog coming out of a refrigerator and a giant marshmallow man wreaking havoc on New York. The ghosts in Ghostbusters II are over the place. Some are 20-foot tall inter-dimensional creatures, while others are just heads on sticks. Is this kind of playful attitude that’s made the Ghostbusters films a touchstone for so many comedy, horror, and film fans since 1984. But as you know, all ghosts aren’t created equal, so it’s time to rank all the ghosts in the first two Ghostbusters.

Vote up the ghosts in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II that made the biggest impression on you. Then leave us a comment about whether or not you are or ain’t afraid of no ghost.

New York Public Library Ghost

Didn't Sheryl Crow say that "the first ghost is the deepest?" Anyway, the first ghost in the movie is stacking books and knocking over shelves in the basement of the New York Public Library. There probably isn't actually a ghost in the NYPL, but just to be safe you should burn your library card.

Zuul

So is Zuul a dog or a sexy lady that sleeps way above the covers? The design for the dog form of Zuul comes from an old church in Philadelphia. Was it a satanic church? Or did they just worship giant evil dogs? see more on Zuul

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list Every Ghost in the First Two Ghostbusters Movies

Appears In: Ghostbusters

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man might be the most iconic of all the Ghostbusters ghosts (one of two ghosts who made it to The Real Ghostbusters cartoon). Originally, Mr. Stay Puft was supposed to come out of the water next to the Statue of Liberty in order to get a size comparison. Unfortunately that idea was just too expensive. Lady Liberty would have to wait until another series of angry ghosts attacked New York.  see more on Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Not much is known about the zombie cab driver (other than the fact that he pulled himself up the grave by his bootstraps and GOT A JOB), but everybody likes him a lot. He is also responsible for a lot of nightmares.
