A cowardly cartoon dog helps his trio of owners – Gilly, Ted and Tina, who work as paranormal investigators for Ghost Chasers magazine – to chase cartoon ghosts (hence the title, really).
Fortuitously, the dog has the ability to become temporarily invisible when he gets scared.
A disappointingly below-par effort from the Hanna-Barbera stable which came across as a cheap copy of Scooby Doo.
Almost by way of compensation, the producers filled the show with (cartoon versions of) special guest stars – primarily from The Partridge Family.
The series repeated again in 1974 and has aired in reruns ever since.
