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 a 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.

You can watch an episode of the live-action and animated series below.
