History

Kenner Products owned the rights to produce toys for the The Real Ghostbusters cartoon series between 1986 and 1991. During this time, they produced two blasters - the GhostPopper and the Ecto-Popper; additional, non-foam blasters included the Ghost Grab-a-Meter and the Rapid Fire Ecto-Blaster.

Mattel purchased the Ghostbusters brand 2009 and has held control of it since then.

In 2020, Hasbro announced a re-release of the Kenner GhostPopper, to commemorate the original Kenner Real Ghostbusters product line.
