Fun Facts

  • The voice actors were recorded on June 23, 1986.
  • There are two versions of this episode which each feature different background music when the Ghostbusters fight the ghosts on the train. One version features standard series music, whereas "The Boogieman" (performed by Tahiti -- from the soundtrack album) is played in the other version. For more information and multimedia, see the Alternate Episodes page.
  • The sewer cover reads "AJIA-DO," the name of a Japanese animation company.
