Fun Facts
  • Title Reference: Casper the Friendly Ghost is a character created in the late 1930s by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo. Casper first appeared in a 1939 children's book and the 1945 animated cartoon "The Friendly Ghost". Shortly after Ghostbusters was released in 1984, the right holders of the Casper property tried to sue Columbia Pictures claiming that the No Ghost logo ghost resembled a character from the Casper property named Fatso. The lawsuit was dismissed as it was ruled that the ghost in the No Ghost logo is the generic depiction of a ghost. Furthermore, Dan Aykroyd had a camero appearance as Ray Stantz in the 1995 "Casper" live-action film starring Christina Ricci.
  • The voice actors were recorded on January 9 and 16, 1987. Frank Welker recorded on January 16, 1987
  • According to Michael Reaves, the writer of the episode, this episode was supposed to have been called "Hector the Happy Ghost," but they ran into legal problems with the name and Victor was the closest they could come to matching the lip flaps.
  • The "Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons" by Jeff Lenburg gives the impression that this episode was originally titled "Slimer Goes For Broke." However, I spoke with Michael Reaves and he says: "As far as I remember my original title was "Hector"; I don't remember ever using the other title. Possibly they ran into trouble with the whole "Happy Ghost" concept, and just slapped a generic title on it."
  • Peter says, "I want to get back in time to watch 'The Bob Newhart Show'." Lorenzo Music, the voice of Peter, was the creator of "The Bob Newhart Show."
