Spookums' parents are two ghosts that are the parents of Spookums.[2]


Spookums' parents were two ghosts that tried to get their baby back when she entered a portal to the human world during a lunar eclipse and rare alignment of stars.[3][4] The Ghostbusters were keeping Spookums until they could find her home. It wasn't until they trapped the two near Brooklyn did they realize that the ghosts were Spookum's parents.[5] The Ghostbusters then helped the family reunite and return home.


Egon Spengler referred to the parents as hostile Class 5's before the Ghostbusters realized they are the concerned parents of Spookums.[6]
