What We Grew Up On: Ghostwriter


PBS definitely had an awesome television line up back in the day. Ghostwriter was one of the many shows I watched on the station. The show aired from 1992 through 1995.

Here’s a bit of the synopsis:

Ghostwriter was the story of a group of New York City kids, brought together by the spiritual being known as “Ghostwriter”. The kids work together, with Ghostwriter’s help, to solve the mysteries they encounter. The series featured a cast of widely different ethnic groups, and focused on the concept of “making reading fun.” The show was renewed for one year as The New Ghostwriter Mysteries” on CBS.

Turns out the show was also shot in Brooklyn, which makes it even better.

Well, it’s so funny that this show was education based and I honestly did not realize that while watching. I was telling Dominique, who actually gave me the idea to post about this, about this one episode that scared me and I still remember it to this day. It was something about a purple slime monster. I could not remember the plot but I just remember it really really scared me to the point where I no longer watched the show. I did a little digging and I found that episode. It actually was called “The Case of the Slime Monster.” And, it was their final episode. I faced my fear (lol) and watched the whole thing. If you watched this series you more than likely remember this episode also. Take a look at it by clicking the links below. The user who uploaded them disabled embeddding.
