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

According to Lou Scheimer, he received a call from a horrified viewer who assumed Tracy the Ape was a substitute for Ghostbusters's Winston Zeddemore. See more »

It isn't fair, all the other ghosts can go through walls.

The closing credits are set within Ghost Command (specifically the area where Jake and Eddie suit up). Unsually, where most Filmation shows would use a static screenshot, the closing credits feature a downward pan of the area. See more »
After reading a previous post, I feel the need to set the record straight. This is Not a rip-off of the film 'Ghostbusters', also, the naming of the cartoon did NOT force the other cartoon to be renamed 'The Real Ghostbusters'. This was a TV show that was on when I was kid in the mid-70's. I used to watch it all the time. The show starred the men from F-Troop, and was made by Filmation. Filmation still held the TV naming rights to the Ghostbusters name, so that is why the other cartoon had to be renamed. I had forgotten about this show until the cartoon came out, and everyone told me I was crazy and such a show had never existed, but I showed them who's crazy didn't I?? Hee hee, anyway, I just felt it was my duty to correct this error.
