Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

Three ghosts enter the firehouse intent on releasing their ghostly leader, Spiderlegs, from the Containment Unit. They kidnap Slimer, taking him to their hideout to barter with the Ghostbusters.




  • Spiderlegs' name is misspelled on the monitor as Spiderless.
  • Winston flies Ecto-2.
  • The three henchghosts act a lot like The Three Stooges, right down to one of them saying "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk".
  • When Slimer adjusts the ghost's hot tub to the highest setting, the dial says "Pupee" likely meant to be Purée meaning to liquefy.
  • After Slimer presses the trap pedal, the trap is seen as having no cord.
