Episode Summary

Birthday Party / Ghostbreaker
"Birthday Party" is about a 47-year-old bar and grill owner from Phoenix, AZ (Carol Gates, played by Janet Leigh), who was forced to give up her twins for adoption 30 years prior, right after they were born. Her fantasy was to be reunited with Tom Dearborn and Tracy Miller (the twins) and wish them a happy 30th birthday. "Ghostbreaker" is about a librarian (Elliott Fielding, played by Ken Berry) who wanted to have his book on ghostbreaking published. He doubted any publisher would touch it without ghost exorcising experience behind it, so his fantasy was to banish a ghost. He was taken to the Camberly School for Girls, headed by Edna Camberly (played by Annette Funicello). The school was the home of a killer known as the Gentleman Strangler, and his ghost was terrorizing the students. Through the teamwork of Elliott Fielding and Edna Camberly, the "ghost" was discovered to be Allan LeBlanc (played by Larry Storch), who was trying to swindle the school away from Edna Camberly.moreless
