"We aim to shock, we hope your knees will knock..."
Definitely a classic of its time. A catchy theme tune, lots of puns and running round-what more does a kid need? Basically a sitcom about a group of ghosts trying to get by "down here." I agree with other comments about the earlier ones being a lot better. The later episodes focused too much on the Meaker's house and the dragon in the cellar. Altogether now-"Don't go in the cellar." Still, worth catching the repeats on digital tv.
