On this day, 28 January 1978: Buster and Monster Fun
At your party be a smarty and hire ... Rent-a-Ghost!
The brilliant Reg Parlett serves up the soup of the day. The concept of Fred Mumford's hire-a-spook service from Rentaghost the TV series (1976-1984) bears notable similarities to Buster's classic strip, which ran from 1969 to 1979. There's no evidence of there having been any legal dispute, however.
