The Goldbergs Go Ghostbusting

By Sharon Knolle | Jan 28th, 2015

Who's excited for the all-female Ghostbusters movie starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristin Wiig? We know one '80s family who really, really loves Ghostbusters: The Goldbergs

WHO YOU GONNA CALL? 

In the "Who Are You Going To Telephone?" Halloween episode, Pops (George Segal) shows up in a Venkman jumpsuit with a miniature suit for grandson Adam (Sean Giambrone). He's crushed when Adam (who made his own Rubik's Cube costume) tells him he has other plans: He's  going to hang out with one of the cool kids at school.

From the Season 1, Episode 6 of The Goldbergs, "Who Are You Going to Telephone?"

 

 GHOSTBUSTING RUNS IN THE FAMILY

Adam's night doesn't exactly go as planned: After being pressured by his cool new friends to egg his own house, he confesses that he really just wanted to go trick or treating. That's just want Pops wants to hear: Soon he and Adam are proudly Ghostbusting. "We're literally the coolest men alive," Adam says and his grandpa can only agree.

WHO WANTS TO EXPERIMENT ON E.T.?

Another of Adam's favorite films: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. The lovable, lost alien may have brought his stoic Dad, Murray (Jeff Garlin) to tears, but he fails to melt the hard, hard heart of his Dad's father, Pop-Pop (Paul Sorvino).

THE GREAT GOONIES PRANK

Knowing Adam is completely obsessed with The Goonies, his big brother and sister plant a fake treasure map in the episode, "Goldbergs Never Say Die!" Adam falls for it and invites all his friends to join him on the adventure, taking the lead role of Mikey for himself, of course, complete with asthma inhaler. Even when he realizes he's been pranked, Adam never says die and finds a real mystery to solve.
