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 »
The 1975 show of Ghostbusters ("The Original Ghostbusters") was an entertaining diversion for young children. Silly, in the campy style of the live-action Batman and other shows of the time, but the interaction between the old F-Troop chums did an admirable job of making up for the (serious, real serious) lack of plot. And this was enough, as it was a show aimed at little kids.
The briefly-run live-action show was left on the shelf for about a decade until the movies starring Ackroyd & Murray became popular enough to spin off a cartoon series. After two or three seasons of THAT series, the original show was dusted off and reborn into its own cartoon, featuring the sons of both Storch & Tucker -- along with the ape & a female character. "The Original Ghostbusters" cartoon also ran but briefly (believe it was put out by a group calling itself "KBN"); still, it ran long enough to apparently spur its competitor to change titles from "Ghostbusters" to "The Real Ghostbusters".
