Synopsis: Peter's dad calls from Alaska and tells the guys he's found Hob Anagarak, "the first demon", frozen in a block of ice by the Inuits.

Fun Facts
  • Title Reference: "Cold cash" is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as "money that a person has and can use immediately." When someone is said to be "in hot water", they are in a state of trouble.
  • The voice actors were recorded on August 21, 1986.
  • This finishes the "trilogy" of swapped episodes: the airing order was "Cold Cash and Hot Water", "Venkman's Ghost Repellers", then "The Spirit of Aunt Lois"; changing it to "Venkman's Ghost Repellers", "The Spirit Of Aunt Lois", then "Cold Cash and Hot Water" works better with the internal nature of the episodes.
  • The story shares some similarities to the classic movie "King Kong."
