Trivia

The ghost in the opening credits was played by Lane Scheimer, son of producer Lou Scheimer. According to Lou in the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", Lane was the only person on set taller than Forrest Tucker. Therefore, his father employed Lane as Tucker's stand-in during production of this series. See more »

Live action show, Not a cartoon
16 May 2005 | by SpaceComicsSee all my reviews

'Fraid the other comment has it all wrong. This was not a cartoon, but a live action Saturday morning program. "Spencery, Tracy, and Kong" were the original Ghost Busters, and they were played by real live TV stars Forrest Tucker (Keeper of the Flame) and Larry Storch (Koko the Clown), and famous sci-fi movie buff Bob Burns (as the Gorilla, Tracy - Forrest Tucker was Kong). Tucker and Storch had appeared together before in F-Troop. It was pretty silly, but for 8-10 year olds relatively entertaining. For a live action kids show in the 1970s it was pretty dang good - consider what else we had then: Sigmund and The Sea Monsters, and a bunch of psychedelic Kroft fantasies.
