    a VERY good episode, one of the best in the series, sending up the whole 'psychic medium' claptrap with a strong story and slick animation, whilst some of the ghosts are hit and miss, the message stays the same and gives plenty of frights,



    Instead of renting some bad B movie watch this instead

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goofs- When the ghostbusters and Dr. Basingame get thrown out of the room, the doors to the room remains open. The ghostbusters then push Dr. Basingame through two closed doors.
      Egon mentions that the ghosts can't leave the room. At the end of the show the last ghost leaves the room on Dr. Basingames' back.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (The Ghostbusters fake a seance to confuse the angry house spirits)
      Ray:: Chant! They'll think the seance is still going on!
      Egon: And a one, and a two, and a... The square of the hypotenuse is always equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, mmmmmm.....
      Winston: (doing a James Brown impression) Ghosts! Get out the place! HEY! Ghosts! Get out my face! HA! Good Lord!
      Ray & Peter: 99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer...if one of those bottles should happen to fall, 98 bottles of beer on the wall....

    • (referring to Dr. Bassingham's "ghostbusting" equipment and the real reading that Egon has detected)
      Peter: Do you think his equipment can handle it?
      Egon: Its not designed to handle it. Its designed to annoy it.
      Peter: Well, as long as it's not completely useless.

    • (Peter is aiming his particle thrower at Slimer, who is hiding behind Janine>
      Janine: Dr. Venkman, don't you dare! There's nothing in my job description about target practice!
      Egon: Peter, stop! This is irrational!
      Peter: No, Egon, finding the refrigerator empty, that's irrational! Slime in my shoes, that's irrational! This'll be fun!

  • NOTES (2)

    • As with "Venkman's Ghost Repellers", this episode clearly takes place before the events of "Cold Cash and Hot Water", where Charlie Venkman and Dr. Bassingham (pronounced "bass-en-game") team up. Ray specifically mentions the events of "The Spirit Of Aunt Lois" in "Cold Cash And Hot Water".

    • Dr. Basingame wears the exact same outfit as Jake Kong from "Filmation's Ghostbusters." Dr. Basingame is a fraud and a charleton, which is what the makers of RGB are calling FGB.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Episode Title: The Spirit of Aunt Lois
      The title of this episode is a reference to "The Spirit of St. Louis" a plane flown by Charles Lindbergh.
