Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

On St. Patrick's Day, Deputy Police Chief O'Malley asks the Ghostbusters to stop a bog hound which has cursed his family for generations.




  • The Boghound is based very much on the Terror Dogs from the first Ghostbusters movie.
  • The recurring character of Lieutenant Frump appears.
  • The guys destroy a banquet room and a chandelier crashes down into a table, ala the first Ghostbusters movie.
  • Several references to superstition are made, including good luck charms, rabbit's foot and four leaf clovers.
  • Egon makes reference to Johnny Weissmuller and his famous role of Tarzan.


Egon: You know, we're all descendants from fish. It would be no trouble at all to flip back in time, find the fish you descended from, and stuff it into a Cuisinart.
