The general plot was of the three members of a fictional band called "The Problem", who find a magical amulet that allows them to see and talk to ghosts. Each episode featured the trio helping the ghosts that they encountered in order for the ghosts to move on to the next world – much to their annoyance. Much of the humour of the series came from the Problem wanting to develop their career instead of helping ghosts. Since no one else can see them, they often come across as insane.
