The Original Ghost Busters

We all remember the classic 1984 film “Ghostbusters” along with the sequel and animated series but before all that, there was TV series bearing the same name but no relation. In 1975, “Ghost Busters” (note the space) was aired for 15 episodes as a children’s show. Comprised of two men (played by Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch) and their pet gorilla, the Ghost Busters travelled around the world in search of ghouls with their camera-like device ready to dispel them. An animated series was created in 1986 but it was only aired for one season although it did spawn a comic book.
