    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Ghostwriter: Careful after dark, my children.
        (A kid signs the bulletin board and does not respond)
        Lenni: Nobody else sees that!
        Jamal: Shhh! People will think we're nuts!

      • Ghostwriter: Where are you, Dynamite Dude Jamal?
        (Lenni shoves the notebook onto the ground. She pokes at it with a stick)
        Ghostwriter: Lenni fights for what's right.

      • Lenni: Who are you?
        Jamal: Where have you been?
        Lenni: Where do you come from?
        Jamal: Don't you know what cornflakes are?
        Lenni:What do you want from us?
        Jamal: How do you follow us around?
        Lenni: Can you see us?
        Jamal: Is your name THABTO?
        Ghostwriter: Why do you not answer me?
        Lenni:We are answering you!
        Jamal: Do you want us to speak louder?
        Ghostwriter: Answer me! Answer me! Answer me! Answer me!
        Lenni: (panics) What do we do now?
        Jamal: I don't know.

      • Gaby: Do you know that St. Petersburg once had 760 days of straight sunshine in a row? That's over two whole years of sunshiny days!
        Alex: Look, I don't know about your school but at my school, kids have to arrive sometime before the school day ends.

      • Jamal: Read what's on the screen.
        Danitra: There's nothing on the screen.
        Jamal: What do you mean there's nothing on the screen? It says, "Help! Help! Help! Where are the children? Are they all right?" So what is it? Some kind of secret computer game or program or something?

      • Lenni: Change the letters around, I dare you!
        Jamal: Look, I don't know what you're talking about. And this is the second time today you have sneaked up on me. You're probably sneaking notes into my locker too.
        Lenni: What?
        (Jamal shows Lenni the message)
        Lenni: (reads)
        "Near the park after dark
        You were there so beware.
        THABTO".
        I didn't write this. And who's THABTO?
        Jamal: I don't know.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Although Ghostwriter's true identity is never revealed in the series, most people think (basing on the many clues that are given throughout the show's run) that he is possibly the ghost of Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland.

      • Contrary to popular belief (which is understandable since it introduces the series), "Ghost Story" is not the original series pilot..."Who Burned Mr. Brinker's Store" is!

      • Wil Horneff was the first Calvin Fergurson for the series. He left after the first story arc.
