Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide


At a rare book auction, Peter accidentally buys an ancient book whose wax seal must not be broken. Janine goes on lunch and opens the book triggering the release of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse! The guys capture the ghosts but they soon escape the trap! A priest from a Monastery in Greece shows up at the firehouse looking for the book that contained the horsemen.

The guys fly to Greece to obtain another wax seal to recaputure the ghosts before the world ends. Unfortunately, they must deal with the ghost riders while scaling the dangerously high cliffside!


  • The Four Horsemen


  • Pay close attention and you'll notice there are several instances in this episode where the wrong character is in the shot and characters are in the wrong clothes.
  • The phone sound effect is late as Janine comments "How'd he do that?" in reference to Peter telling Janine she should answer the phone when it wasn't ringing yet.
  • Egon's line of "Metal fatigue?" could be a subtle reference to the first Ghostbusters movie where Egon comments on the condition of the firehouse.
  • A TV advertisement for Stay Puft brand marshmallows is briefly seen though it is incorrectly spelled as "Stay Puff"
  • The title of this episode is a parody of the 1979 movie, Apocalypse Now.
  • Peter makes reference to The Beatles as The Fab Four.
