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 »
In the opening credits of the series, Larry Storch's character is called "Spencer," but the door of the office spells it "Spenser." See more »
Another gem of my lost childhood memories... retrieved!
I remember watching this show on Saturday mornings and I think it rocked (I was 4 at the time). Spenser, Tracy and Kong the Ghost Busters (known here in Mexico as 'Los Cazadores de Fantasmas' fighting all kinds of specters, ghouls and critters with their feared 'ghost de-materializer'. I recently got the complete series on DVD and am not ashamed to admit I shed a few tears of joy after watching these long lost episodes and listening to the catchy theme song again after so many years. It's still silly after all this time, but still wholesome fun as well. On a side note, F-troop was broadcast here too but I didn't realize it had the two stars of The Ghost Busters in it until recently! Forrest Tucker, Larry Storch and Bob Burns were all great in their roles and so were the guest stars (Bernie Kopell from The Love Boat, Marty Ingels, Billy Barty). I remember the cartoon too but this show holds a special place of my childhood memories. Thank you Filmation, for producing this fun series; and thank you Digital Ink and Paint for bringing us this classic on DVD. THE GHOST BUSTERS DO IT AGAIN!!
