|Appeared in||The Ghost Busters, Ghostbusters|
|Played by||Larry Storch|
|Voiced by||Peter Cullen|
Eddie Spenser is in many ways the comic relief of the three "original" Ghost Busters.
He never took things seriously, and would always be the least interested in going to the old castle and such.
Spenser had an ancestor named Edward Spenser who came to America on the Mayflower with his family. He became the head spell disolver of old Salem and broke the spells of the Witch of Salem. Centuries later, The Witch returned to seek revenge on Edward's descendants.
He wears a zoot suit, which includes a large brimmed hat and a pocket watch with a long chain dangling from it.

- Much of Larry Storch's portrayal of Eddie Spenser can be traced back to his role in F-Troop.
