Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

It's Animal House meets Ghostbusters! An ghostly group of college pranksters wreak havoc on campus! Peter's old fraternity comes to the guys for help. After many traditional fraternity jokes, the Ghostbusters bargain with the ghosts having them take make up courses so they can graduate! Will the guys be able to stall enough to set up their trap before the ghosts catch on to them?




  • Peter's old fraternity Tri Kuppa Bru is a joke referencing beer.
  • Though never named in the script, the three students are Dudley, Specs and Willis.
  • Peter recognizes his old fraternity chant. Tri Cuppa Brew, brothers through and through. So what if we're a mess? We always pass the test! Tri Cuppa Brew.
  • Tri Cuppa Brew's history book honors Peter's memory for the day he ran his underwear up the flagpole, while wearing them.
  • One of the few episodes where the guys call each other by their last name like the movies. Ex: Stantz, Venkman.
