Megan and Kenny Carter went to the Ghostbusters for help in getting rid of the Boogieman, but the Ghostbusters learned that the Boogieman was a corporeal entity and not a ghost, so they had to come up with a new way to stop him. Egon eventually came up with the idea to use the Ghost Bomb to imprison the Boogieman within his own realm.
When the Ghostbusters fought the Boogieman in his realm, Megan and Kenny overcame their fear of the Boogieman and helped the Ghostbusters defeat the Boogieman by insulting him and tripping him up with their toy marbles. After the Boogieman was (temporarily) imprisoned in his own realm, the Carter children were finally able to sleep well.
