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 »

We're "The GHOOOOOST BUSTERRRRS"!!!
12 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He's Spencer! He's Tracy! I'm Kong! YAAAAAHH!!!!

Sorry.

"The Ghost Busters" (not to be confused with the 1984 film with Bill Murray) told the live action Filmation tale of the three chronically slapstick-ish busters of the title (Storch, Tucker and Burns as the gorilla) tackling all manner of ghosts - which all seem to have come from the same graveyard. Hmmm....

Anyway, even though the trio bumbled from episode to episode and seemed just a little south of competent, they ended up putting the ghosts back where they came from, with all manner of vaudeville routines and even some fast-motion running thrown in from time to time.

For the whippersnappers who didn't watch "F-Troop" way back when, here was the perfect way to see the chemistry between Storch and Tucker, and with a gorilla mixed in, to boot!

Do they even have this on video anymore? Probably not. Oh well, I'll always have memories - and that theme running through my head forever....

Ten stars. "The Ghost Busters" DO IT AGAAAAAAAAAAIN!!!
