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 »

Thr original, genuine, first, and best of all Ghost Busters
I wasn't a kid when this aired ... I was in my 20s, and recognized it as the hippest kids TV around. You couldn't possibly have preferred Sid and Marty Kroft or Bob Denver's sad attempt at kid TV.
Full of bad puns, slapstick humor for kids, and the best gorilla suit in show business. Bob Burns was brilliant as Tracy. The file drawer schtick was good every time. My husband and I to this day still quote episodes, like Abby Dalton and Marty Ingalls with that campfire. "How'd you make coffee when there ain't no fire?" "I just left it on a little longer."
No, it's not sophisticated, and makes no apology for its silliness. But if you're intelligent, you can see how hip it is.
