Ghostbusters - Janosz Poha by DanSchoening Ghostbusters - Janosz Poha by DanSchoening
13 Days of Hallowe'en Part 2

7 of 13

"He is Vigo (Whigo)! You are like the buzzing of flies to him!"

One of my favorites characters from GB2

Dr. Janosz Poha first appeared in Ghostbusters 2, and was the Curator for the Manhattan Museum of Art. He was also the Dana Barrett's boss, whom he made awkward advances upon, usually in the form of brunch "dates."

To abduct little Oscar Barrett, he took the form of a red eyed spectral Nanny with a baby carriage. A ghoulish Marry Poppins!

Peter MacNicol was a load of fun as Janosz.  His "torch-eyes" scene rivals his nanny guise for sheer freakiness.

In the actual movie, he looked terrifying.

Here, he looks goofy. In fact, he looks exactly how you would expect someone like Janosz in drag to look like.

Sorry for my first comment. It was not complete and I accidentally send it before it was ready.

You maybe rename this to Nanny Poha because technically it is Janosz Poha as
cross dressed Marry Poppins pedophiler form hell… Give you nightmares by just thinking about it.

P.S. The cross dressed Marry Poppins pedophiler form hell comment is from the Nostalgia Critic on when he dit the Top 11 Scariest Nostalgic Moments.

This is AWSOME if I do say so myself. XD Good job. This was just a weird part in the film. Just the thought of a man in a woman's clothes. Not saying there is anything wrong with that at all. Just the way it was in the movie. XD

Is it because of the whole abducting a baby on a ledge or the fact that it's a man in women's clothing?

So glad to see these "profile" pics coming back. What are the odds that at any point you'll delve into the Extreme Ghostbusters lore, or was that not of particular interest for you? Either way, hope to see some more Real Ghostbusters characters on here, love the work!

Too bad nobody ever asked the follow-up question "no seriously, where are you really from?"

I guessed his character was Polish. I would have found it funny if an actor who spoke fluent Polish asked him a question (in the said fluent language) while filming...only for the actors to return blank stares.

"Janosz! Ostre zimy w Polsce mamy, co? Pomyślałem Ci uciekł stamtąd?"
(No, I don't speak Polish; this was merely amateurish experimentation with google translator, so the grammar might be off)
