“Woop! You’re gonna be staying at Uncle Pete’s until this thing blows over. This is your place now.”

Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) to Oscar (Will and Hank Deutschendorf)

Peter Venkman’s apartment appears several times in the film.

This is where Dana (Sigourney Weaver) takes refuge when her bathtub, covered in slime, tries to swallow Oscar.

The time to understand what is going on, the ex-cellist decides to live in the apartment with his son for a while. One night, Peter asks her out and asks Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) to babysit.

Accompanied by Louis Tully (Rick Moranis), Janine (Annie Potts) watches over the baby, and everything goes perfectly until Dana returns.

Just then, a ghost resembling Janosz (Peter MacNicol) in the form of a “nanny from the hell” kidnaps Oscar and goes to join Vigo at the museum. Dana tries to walk along the ledge of the building to catch up with her child, but to no avail.

At first, the kidnapper was supposed to look like a huge bat, then a gigantic two-headed bird. Deemed too scary for children, the concept was revised.
