1975-The Ghost Busters
A Norm Prescott/Lou Scheimer production from 1975, The Ghost Busters was a Saturday morning show that featured Spencer, Kong, and Tracy the gorilla as they would go on missions to find ghosts to use their Ghost Dematerializer on. (Spencer Tracy and Kong. Get it? Groan.) They ended up always going to the same spooky house on the edge of town and they would go all Three Stooges while chasing down the ghost.
It's a shock it didn't last more than 15 episodes. This show was remade as a cartoon in the 80s after the success of the movie Ghostbusters, which shared a remarkable resemblance to the name and plot elements of this show, don't you think?
