The Girly Ghosthunters was a 30-minute Canadian paranormal TV series. It was first broadcast on Friday, January 14, 2005, on the Canadian SPACE speciality channel. The thirteenth and last episode was broadcast April 15, 2005.

The show featured four young women visiting alleged haunted locations in the province of Ontario. To visit these locations, they used a motorhome with the Girly Ghosthunters logo on the sides, driven by a character named Schultzy. They used modern ghost hunting equipment, in an attempt to document any ghosts, apparitions or other phenomena in the visited locations. Before doing so, they interviewed a few people at each locale to understand the history of the building and hear how the place was haunted. After the investigation was over, viewers are shown any evidence of paranormal activity collected from the chosen location. "YOU DECIDE" (this is the preamble for each group of evidence at the end of each episode) for yourself whether it is true or an elaborate hoax. The show was produced by Buck Productions, Inc.[1]

The Four Girly Ghosthunters and Mascot[edit]

  • Dana Matthews: The "spiritualist." Her favourite ghost detection tool was by using dowsing. In the show's introduction, it was named as the dousing rods.
  • Corrie Matthews: The "scientist." She was the one to question and debunk the girls discoveries. Her favourite tool was the digital camera. Corrie and Dana are also sisters.
  • Jen Kieswetter: The "researcher." She was the main person responsible for gathering any information about the places they were going to investigate. Her favourite tool was the digital audio recorder.
  • Nicole Dobie: The "adventurer." Her favourite tool was the specialized pendulum that looked like the Foucault pendulum. Accompanied with the pendulum was a board that lets a spirit answer any question by directing the pendulum to the choices of a yes, no, or maybe answer.
  • Gnomie: The Girly Ghosthunters' mascot. It was a typical garden gnome.
