The Sprite[1] was a ghost that haunted an Italian restaurant along with a few other poltergeists.


While most of the ghosts were captured by the Ghostbusters, the Sprite hitched a ride on Jon and Olivia's car. It then haunted Horace Stewart's mansion and caused a lot of damage. When it saw Olivia, it tangoed with her until it was captured by the Ghostbusters. By then, Horace remembered that he wanted to say goodbye to Olivia before peacefully dispersing.


At times, the Sprite is shown to be childlike. For example, one of the things it did was paint mustaches on the portraits in Uncle Horace's house.
