- The script for this episode can be found on The Real Ghostbusters Scripts page.
- Title Reference: The Spirit of St. Louis is the name of the plane that was flown solo by Charles Lindbergh on May 20–21, 1927, on the first non-stop flight from New York to Paris. The name was also given to a 1957 biographical film starring James Stewart as Charles Lindbergh.
- As with "Venkman's Ghost Repellers", this episode clearly takes place before the events of "Cold Cash and Hot Water", where Charlie Venkman and Dr. Basingame team up. Ray specifically mentions the events of "The Spirit Of Aunt Lois" in "Cold Cash And Hot Water".
- Dr. Basingame wears the exact same outfit as Jake from Filmation's Ghostbusters. Dr. Basingame is a fraud and a charleton, which is what the makers of The Real Ghostbusters are calling Filmation's Ghostbusters.
