Trivia

The series was unrelated to the 1984 film Ghostbusters (though Columbia Pictures did pay Filmation for a license to use the title). Like the film, the series spawned its own animated sequel in 1986. Dan Ackroyd and Harold Ramis did not know about this show when they wrote their original story. It wasn't until after production had begun and the release of the movie was announced that they found out, so they had to make a deal to get the rights to the name. In the course of their dealings they did not lock down the animation rights and Filmation produced their own cartoon based on this series. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Spencer, Tracy and Kong!
19 November 2000 | by gazzo-2See all my reviews

I remember this show very fondly, it came on right after 'Far Out SpaceNuts' on CBS Sat. Mornings in '75-76. Basically it was the same old thing-you got to see them do the Scooby doo routine with co-star monsters Marty Engels or whomever with a guy(Bob Burns) in an ape suit. I kid you not, as kids me and my two brothers were Sure that it was a real ape! The show was easy to take, well intentioned and fun. I have NOT seen it since, but it hangs in the memory quite well.

*** outta ****, not bad.
