Fearsome Flush - Real Ghostbusters

The Fearsome Flush is one of the oddest toys in the entire Real Ghostbusters line by Kenner. It's a haunted toilet! How weird is that? This light blue toilet has wheels on the bottom that activate a mechanism that cause the seat and tank to flip open and reveal the monster within.


The toilet seat lid has the Ghostbusters "No Ghost" symbol on top. This logo is the one detail that is unpainted. I could have sworen this thing was called the toilet terror, I knew it had alliteration in the name. I still remember hearing a story about a kid that wouldn't use the toilet in his house after receiving the Fearsome Flush as a present.

  1. After seeing Retroblastings video on this...I would never collect the Real Ghostbusters. Too corny.

    1. I wartch some of Retroblastings videos. but for a Retro fan he's a little to negative for me. The line was totally corny, but a ton of fun as a kid. I would have though you'd be into the monsters.

  2. In all honesty, a toy like that would never fly by today's standards. But it's a funny toy, nonetheless.
