Goober and the Ghost-Chasers is another in the long line of formula cartoons that came out during the 1970's from Hanna-Barbera. The only difference was that the main human characters were young adults and that Goober could turn invisible and didn't have the ability to speak like Scooby Doo (Goober did speak, but it was in more like an aside where he revealed what he was thinking to the audience). The human characters also lacked the memorable qualities that made Shaggy, Velma, Fred and Daphne the great supporting characters they were. Also, you know the producers lack confidence in a show when they feel they have to pile it up with guest stars (Danny Bonaduce and Susan Dey as Danny and Laurie Partridge, Michael Gray and Wilt Chamberlain).
