Is Penelope Kitten ready for her close-up?…
Penelope Kitten is sitting at the window in her too-big khaki Ghostbusters uniform with the double orange stripes. She looks like a kitten version of these young Ghostbusters girls.
Marcy: What are you doing, Penelope?
penelope kitten (squeaking): waiting for the ecto-1 to arrive with my proton pack.
penelope kitten: gonna be in the new all black cat ghostbusters bunch.
Marcy: Says who?
penelope kitten: my friends at studio goldsparkle. see?
Marcy: That’s just a tweet supporting the movie and the All Black Cats Are Not Alike book you’re in.
penelope kitten: no. no. they said.
Marcy: Well, did you get a call sheet and a contract?
penelope kitten: not yet.
Marcy: Don’t get your hopes up. Plus, you’re a scaredy cat. You’ll get slimed.
penelope kitten: i ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts.
penelope kitten: yeah.

Marcy stalks off as Penelope Kitten patiently resumes her lookout.
Three hours later. Marcy walks by on her way to the food dishes.
Penelope Kitten is still waiting expectantly for the Ecto-1 to deliver her proton pack.
Marcy (exasperated): You do know that there’s no such thing as ghosts, right?
penelope kitten: then why are there ghost busters?
Marcy shakes her head and stalks off to eat dinner.
Penelope Kitten sneaks up behind Marcy.
penelope kitten (squeaking): boo.
Marcy leaps 6 feet in the air, hisses, and races off to hide in the closet.
penelope kitten: ha ha. #blackcatsrule
Penelope Kitten sits in her spot by the window and continues to wait for the Ecto-1 to deliver her proton pack.
*We are cat-loving feminists/humanists here at Marcy Very Much and are super stoked to have an all women Ghostbusting team of fearlessly funny comediennes.
As you know, we don’t usually get serious here on our site but… we are sick to our stomachs at all the hate and meanness and misogyny that has been coming at this movie and the actors since the cast was first announced.
We are especially devastated that one cast member in particular – the brilliant Leslie Jones- has suffered the brunt of our humanity’s ugliness and racism. Heartbroken. Horrified. Angry. As director Paul Feig tweeted, “Any personal attacks against her are attacks against us all”.
Twitter has finally and permanently banned the instigator of these attacks from its platform. Finally.
