Trivia

Clever messages can be read on two of the large tombstones featured in each episode's cemetery scenes: (1) "In Memory of Lucy Moonlite, 1817-1847, She lit up our nights." (2) "Here lies K.S. Walker, 1781-1972, Praise the Lord we buried him at last." The latter tombstone appears to be an in-joke on series art director Keaton S. Walker. See more »

Goofs

In the opening credits of the series, Larry Storch's character is called "Spencer," but the door of the office spells it "Spenser." See more »

Don't be confused by all of the different Ghost Busters Shows
2 February 2006 | by kamesamaSee all my reviews

I just read someone else's comments about this show and apparently they were confused. THIS SHOW WAS NOT A CARTOON, IT WAS A LIVE ACTION SERIES. Filmation released a cartoon based on this show in the 80s. This program was on TV in the 70s.

As a kid, watching this on Saturday morning Television, I thought that it was the greatest show. Seeing episodes (available on a discontinued VHS tape from Continental Video) more recently, I found that the humor really didn't survive my growing up. It can still be fun to watch for its campy horror\comedy and Bob Burns did great as the Gorilla member of the Ghost Busting team! For those not familiar with the series, every week the characters would receive a message sending them on a ghost busting mission. The message would alway self destruct after they listened to it and Tracy the Gorilla would always get caught in the explosion. The characters would usually end up in a haunted house\mansion where they would solve whatever problem was going on in that episode, then find the ghost and send it on to the next plane of existence. Lots of silly jokes and guest stars that were familiar to 70s TV audiences.
