The ghost of Harry Albert, a werewolf, and a gypsy named Sophia return to the world of the living to find a cure for his condition. Spenser and Tracy have unwittingly found a mystical amulet that can do just that, and the ghosts plot to steal it.


  • Harry Albert is a play off of Larry Talbot, the title monster of The Wolf Man.
  • It's uncertain why the ghosts don't cooperate with the Ghost Busters, as Harry Albert wants to be cured of his changes into a werewolf. Surely the Ghost Busters would be happy to learn how to break the curse on other werewolves.
  • Zero's message is inside a bicycle wheel.
  • Dodo Denney, who plays Sophia the Gypsy, also portrayed Mike Teavee's mother in 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
