A C.J. short for Halloween
16 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this short online once and I thought it's good; I love these early Chuck Jones shorts. And also, I thought it is a great short for Halloween - or anytime.

This spooky short is about a little boy ghost (bearing a resemblance to Casper the Friendly Ghost, only with bangs) who is inexperienced at haunting houses & whose "suit/sheets" resemble the typical footy pajamas with the "trap door" that were popular in that era. The little mute ghost then goes on a haunting job interview at a haunted house on high hill; then gets terrorized by a bigger ghost, voiced by fellow cartoon director Tex Avery.

Overall, I love this short, I do not see why no one likes Chuck Jones' early cartoons - I do.
