SmurfVlogs™ : Watched this in the 4th grade. Man oh man did I love this show.

SuperHorseman22 : Who is here because of watching this in the 90's?

eleventhirtytwo : Sam L Jackson? I don't remember him being in Ghostwriter! WOW!

NiCole Sky : PBS was the ish back in the day! Just about every program had kids from different races on one show and it was education overload but in a cool way. Totally miss this show and other PBS shows from the 80's & early 90's like Reading Rainbow and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago! Thank God for Youtube but *I WANT MY FREAKING CHILDHOOD BACK* 😭

Ms Smith : love this show . I'm 33 now and this show never gets old . I can watch this all-day

Black Bull : This show came out when I was 6, still remember basically every episode. Ghostwriter, Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Reading Rainbow were all must watches back in the day. Today's kids are suffering big time.

Robdeltonie : Call me crazy, but... Am I the only one who wishes that Ghostwriter could start airing again on HBO as a part of their deal with Sesame Workshop? I mean, I know it's not going to be on there now, but if I get enough positive response in favor of this (liking, replying, etc.), I would be open to starting a petition to make this happen!!

Dalia Burgoin : I watched every one of these episodes and had no idea samuel l jackson was in it haha

Buffy8Fan : This and Wishbone were my PBS shows.

SmurfVlogs™ : Also this episode creeped me out a little as a kid lol.

She’s A Savage : Memories from my childhood. You have to be an 80s baby to get it. Iconic show. Interracial cast. Spanish family having full Spanish conversations. Fort green Brooklyn BEFORE gentrification. 😍

Jim Smirh : I've looked everywhere for Sheldon Turnipseed on the internet. Nothing! He has no web footprint. Ghostwriter, help!

T. C. : Yup, it was all about this, and Where in the World is Carmen San diego? .... damn nostalgia is running in overdrive

Ronald Li : we need a then and now of ghost writer cast

majinsnake : Ghostwriter producer and writer Kermit Frazier revealed in a 2010 interview that Ghostwriter was the ghost of a runaway slave during the American Civil War. He taught other slaves how to read and write and was killed by slave catchers and their dogs. His soul was kept in the book that Jamal first discovered in the pilot episode, and when Jamal opened the book he was freed.

Kamon Shirow : This was the hour on Sunday evenings when you couldn't pull me away from the tv. Original Gaby will always be my favorite.

james doodle : I used to have put a pen on an necklace because of this show

Mark Abrian : holy crap, why did i never think to look for episodes on youtube? I remember having to go to the public libarary and hope they have these on VHS! of course, that was years ago in my early teens

Jimmy Othello : Wow Samuel L. Jackson on a TV show.

Chris James : One of my absolute favorite shows when I was a kid. Last time I saw it was when it was on Noggin when I was like eleven or twelve. Can't wait to watch it all the way through! :D

Emily Clark : This was on PBS right? I remember watching PBS kids all the time.

Pringlesman : I remember really wanting those cool pens they had in this show.

Telly's Muse : Yes this was my show

Jeremy Rodgers : Jamal, you can't just go on the internet saying "ready for a dynamite dude" and not expect someone to reply with "where are the children?"

Carlos Paradox : Hey it's Samuel L. Jackson!! In first 2 minutes.

DukeDarkshadow : "Don't you know what corn flakes are?" Jamal is clearly a master at asking the really important questions.

legail1 : I hated when Lenni was Rapping ...I just hated.  It made me crazy!!! Funny at the same time... I like her really but the rapping the could have kept.

Micheal Murphy : WOW The Man Samuel L.Jackson

TheSpecialTimes : At the time, growing up in NYC, my friends and I would make fun of this so often. Because it was, of course, lighthearted and hopeful, This was not the case in the early 90's NYC public school system. It was much darker and much more dangerous. But that didn't stop me from going home pretty much everyday and watching the show until the last season back then. No amount of jokes could change that this show was how I wanted my city to be. <3 "It's time for a change"

martin staton : inspired me to always read and be active...god bless this show.....truly a fan....still till this day......thank you guys for a beautiful childhood

Lucky Pierce : Lenny's Dad's special sauce had weed in it.

Brian Baer : Best Black kid name. Sheldon Turnipseed lol

Matt101Vgettio : The hell Samuel L jackson was in Ghost writer ?!!!!

Medal Mold : Omfg one of my favorite childhood shows !

nomibe2911 : Wtf not only is Samuel Jackson in like every movie known to man but he's also in your favorite kid shows lol. This man is a hard worker.

Steve Bosell : This was my brothers and mines SHIT back in the day. So much nostalgia

sweetlipss84 : we need the whole ghostwriter episode back on OPB were more educated and eager to listen.. our world today is rachetness and evil shows

vegitausa : Shows like this are the closest thing to a time machine because i instantly got taken back. I was so ready for this show when Sunday came.

Retr0Beau : I miss the 90s you could go outside without the fear of some pervert trying to kidnap you. You didn't think about things like race or religion you just wanted someone to play with.

Heida Feiler : Can anyone write an essay for me?

risinglotuswind : "Jamal, beware of cops, and no I don't want your mix tape."


Colquitt Brett : The masks on those dudes used to freak me out! Having serious flashbacks to childhood trauma right now, y'all.

Natalie F. : Didn't relaize that Samuel L. Jackson plays Jamaal's Dad... too funny.

Daniel Forth : Samuel L. Jackson! 

Joanne Marie Lehrke : To bad there can't be a Ghostwriter in real life.  Would be kind of cool!!

Fleur Longman : *Can anyone write an essay for me?*

Ashley P : I grew up on these shows. Also Zoom, shows on nick- Clarissa explains it all, secret world of Alex Mac, Are you Afraid of the Dark.

Baz82 : OMG remember watching this in school 

Inf Know : Loved this show growing up. But thinking about it now, those little dorks cosplaying as video game characters in a New York park after dark would've been mugged.
