Fun Facts
  • Title Reference: In Norse mythology, Ragnarok is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures, the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Rock and roll is a genre of popular music that originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s, primarily from a combination of African-American genres such as blues, jump blues, jazz, and gospel music, together with Western swing and country music. Though elements of rock and roll can be heard in blues records from the 1920s and in country records of the 1930s, the genre did not acquire its name until the 1950s.
  • The voice actors were recorded on October 29, 1986.
  • The "Dark One" is listed as "Thing in Clouds" in the episode call sheet.
  • DyTyllio was named after fellow Real Ghostbusters writer Larry DiTillio, who would later pay back the tribute to JMS in "You Can't Teach An Old Demon New Tricks".
  • The ABC Theater is showing "Ghostbusters." ABC was the network that first aired RGB.
  • "DIC" is written on the TV Reporter's microphone. DIC is the company that makes the RGB series.
