Bello Micawb[3][4] is the patriarch of the Micawb family.


After an unsuccessful attempt to get rid of a ghost, Bello Micawb hired the Ghostbusters. He greeted them and offered them worm wort tea then warm yak milk. Bello then proceeded to explain the problem and introduced the rest of his family. When the Ghostbusters were about to turn down the job, Bello stated money was no object and would pay whatever they wanted. The Ghostbusters took on the job and Bello tasked his daughter Lydia Micawb with showing them around. During dinnertime, he invited Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore to supper.


  • Bello appears to be based on Gomez Addams of the Addams Family franchise.
