The front facing panel has the Adventureland entrance sign over...

Harry Anderson.  Gone too soon. Rest in peace.

Much in the same vein of Ghostbusters - a dark story is told of a pervasive evil but interlaced with an edgy adult humor while maintaining a quirkiness that made it entertaining for me as a child.  As an adult, I was shocked when I re-watched Ghostbusters and heard the frequent occurrence of salty sexual humor.  I could easily be offended by the sexist suggestive comedy but never in a million years would I petition the directo...
