Primary Canon HistoryEdit

Some time during Ray Stantz' youth, he roasted Stay Puft Marshmallows and it remained his most fondest childhood memory.

In 1984, when Dana Barrett first encounters Zuul, her abandoned groceries included a bag of the marshmallows and some time later, a sign advertising them can be seen when the Storage facility explodes.

Main CanonEdit

After the Ghost of Christmas Past transports the Ghostbusters and Woodrow Wainwright Fraser III to Camp Waconda, they witness a young Ray with his parents roasting Stay Puft Marshmallows. Ray also appears to keep a bag on his nightstand in the Firehouse sleeping quarters. Some marshmallows are present in the apartment where Janine Melnitz's team's first bust took place. Dana also still keeps a bag in her kitchen.


In an alternate timeline, the Ghostbusters chose not to cross the streams. 31 days later, they agreed to help Gozer get back to its home dimension and thus lose its new Destructor Form. After they recruited Tempore Ruga to send Gozer back in time, the timeline corrected itself. The Ghostbusters returned to the Firehouse with Dana and Louis. Ray didn't know why but he admitted to having a powerful craving for Stay Puft Marshmallows. He asked if anyone wanted to roast some. Peter agreed to it.

Paragraph reads: "A large billboard -- rendered in matte painting form by Matthew Yuricich -- appears on one of the buildings adjacent to the firehall. Featured on it is a representation of the Stay-Puft marshmallow man and the words "Stay-Puft Marshmallows -- Stays Puft, Even When Toasted" -- an advertising slogan lifted from Dan Aykroyd's original script."

Michael Gross recounts: "In fact, at one point, we considered either ending or beginning the Ghostbusters commercial with a Stay-Puft spot -- complete with a little stop-motion countertop like the Pillsbury doughboy. We discarded that idea, though, as being a bit of overkill."

Stay Puft Marshmallows are one of the many high quality products we make here at Comm Core. Frankly, we're outraged. You may have fooled the city with your little puppet show but not us! This company has worked over 75 years to cultivate the family friendly image of Mr. Stay Puft. He was modeled after somebody's uncle for crying out loud! And it wasn't all so you could go to war with him in downtown Manhattan! This is defamation of character on the grandest scale! You'll be hearing from us Ghostbusters! Have a sunny, funny Comm Core Corp day."

Paragraph reads: "Dr. Venkman recommended we clear our minds and not give an answer, but, as a god, Gozer was able to look into our minds anyway and pull from them the strongest image---in this case, Dr. Stantz's childhood memory of roasting Stay Puft marshmallows at Camp Waconda."
