Trivia

The scenes in each episode where Spencer and Tracy collect their ghost busting assignment were filmed outside Lechler's Grocery and Hardware Store in Piru, California. On the DVD, Lou Scheimer notes that 13 of those scenes were filmed in one fell swoop on a very hot summer day in 1975. See more »

Dim, fond memories
5 January 2003 | by (Charlottesville, VA) – See all my reviews

I also remember seeing this show, but vaguely. Where I was -- in Cincinnati, Ohio -- it came on Sunday mornings. I, of course, watched it religiously because back in those days there were no Sunday morning cartoons and stuff (only Wonderama and U.S of Archie), and there was always serious withdrawal after the beloved Saturday morning cartoon binge.

I'm sure Storch and Tucker must have felt like they were at the tail end of their careers, but they were the dudes to me then. And the gorilla? I don't know, I just bought it at the time. I don't remember much of the show, but I remember really liking it. Would love to watch it again just to see how much I recognize.
