The Melnitz Family is the immediate family of Janine Melnitz, six total. They also have an orange cat for a pet.


Janine managed to get a night off and convinced Egon Spengler to go with her to her family's apartment in Canarsie for dinner. The little boy present was content with shooting Egon in the face with his water gun. The dinner was cut short when Egon was needed back at the Firehouse to help deal with Imps.

After a date gone bad at Cheap Thrills Amusement Park, Janine spoke with her Aunt Bella. Bella revealed the lot occupied by the carnival had a long history, including a tragic fire that killed several circus animals.[1]
