Retro Rentaghost T-shirts

Searching for an uber cool T-shirt theme idea that no one else has thought of can be a daunting task. A retro tee is always a pretty cool choice (well, almost always!), but even more so when it manages to turn heads.

A Rentaghost T-shirt is certainly a unique and geeky choice, and geek fashion is certainly very chic right now, particularly if it's purely British. Only if you're of a certain age will you remember Rentaghost, which was a pretty zany kids comedy series which aired on BBC1 during the late 1970s and into the first half of the 80s.

The logo has many similarities to the Ghostbusters design, except it was created long before the Ghostbusters movie was first shown in 1984. However, while the film's plot revolved around extinguishing ghosts, Rentaghost, of course, was about hiring them out!

The first design on the page features the logo with a reverse print effect, with the ghost being white and the text being black, whereas, the original logo featured a clear ghost with a white outline and white text. The new design certainly stands out more and the shirt itself comes in a range of colours with sizes up to XXXXXL. A T-shirt for women is also available in  a range of colours with sizes up to 20.

The T-shirt is, of course, ideal for Halloween and certainly a more geeky and original choice than a Ghostbusters design. However, there are a couple more Rentaghost designs available, the first of which looks very much like the original logo.

This design by Cultzilla looks much more like the original and is, therefore, is more authentic, although none of the T-shirts are actually official. The women's Tee comes in sizes 8-16 and a Mens T-shirt is also available for sizes up to XXL.

This 100% pre-shrunk cotton T-shirt is available from Sherbert Dip at Amazon UK in sizes up to XXXXL. The ladies T-shirt is available for sizes 8 to 16.

I managed to find this design featuring the disobedient jester Timothy Claypole, who became the most prominent and best-loved character in the series. This one was available on ebay.

There is also a range of Rentaghost T-shirts at Redbubble.com and each design can also be printed on a full range of other items, including hoodies, bags and mugs.
