Eddie, Jake and their pet gorilla Tracy track down and eliminate ghosts with the help of a few supernatural sidekicks. This is an animated remake of the live-action series, "The Ghost Busters" (1975), and is in no way related to the more well-known film "Ghostbusters" (1984). Written by

This show is an animated version and an indirect sequel to The Ghost Busters (1975). In fact, Tracy the Gorilla is the same character in both shows, with the animated Jake Kong and Eddie Spenser being the sons of the live-action Kong and Spenser (who make guest appearances on this show). See more »

This is the only show where the Filmation logo was customized: it appears with a musical chime, and the "Presents" title is a scrawl rather than in a typeface . See more »
It's a little known fact but the characters depicted in this series
were around long before the movie version was. Back in 1975 there was a
short lived TV series called "The Ghost Busters" that featured ghosts
being hunted by a trio armed with strange equipment. After the success
of the successful film (the title of which had to be paid for by the
producers to Filmation who owned the name) they brought the characters
back in this series.
That's not to say that this show is BETTER than the theatrical Ghost
Busters, but it is interesting to note that this isn't the rip off...
the theatrical Ghost Busters was the rip off (even if it was a vastly
superior rip off!
