15 x 30 minute episodes


The Ghost Busters were Eddie Spenser, Jake Kong and Tracy (a gorilla). The trio dealt with ghosts and other supernatural creatures.

At the beginning of each episode, the trio received a taped message outlining their new mission. Once the message played, the recording self-destructed – a la Mission: Impossibleghostbusters_021Unfortunately, they never managed to get rid of the recording before it exploded!

The paranormal investigators then headed out to find, capture or get rid of the supernatural being. In almost every case, the various creatures ended up in the old castle.

The various creatures they encountered included Vikings, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, vampires, gypsies, werewolves, and of course, various ghosts.
