Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

When Peter's new car blows up, the Ghostbusters are invited to the Generous Motors factory to find what's causing all those models to self-destruct. They find their answer. Gremlins!




  • Pea soup green is Egon's favorite color. Ray has a tuxedo that color as well.
  • There are several instances in this episode where Winston's suit is colored incorrectly.
  • The guys are seen entering the employee lounge under attack and the next shot shows them entering in a different order.
  • The Ghostbusters sing Respect at the end of the episode.
  • Ray built 3 cars in his last year of auto shop.


(The Ghostbusters watch as the gremlins try to damage the car built as a lure, their efforts frustrated when it changes before they can even scratch it.)

Winston Zeddemore: I don't believe it, the thing just keeps getting uglier!
Egon Spengler: Nobody said that science was pretty, Winston.

Peter: I scrimped and saved for that car! I wanted it more than anything in the world!
Ray: That's what he said when I ate the last of the ice cream last night.

Winston: Couldn't you at least have used a decent colour?
Egon: Pea-soup green is my favourite colour!
Ray: I have a tuxedo that colour!
Peter: That's one of the reasons you're such a lonely man, Ray.
