Lonesome Ghosts (1937)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Highly entertaining short from Walt Disney has four ghosts haunting a house when they see a newspaper ad claiming a certain group can catch any ghost. In order to have some fun, the ghosts call the number and pretty soon Mickey, Donald Duck and Goofy show up but get more than what they thought they would. LONESOME GHOSTS is a darn good short from the boys at Disney, which offers up three of their most loved characters as well as the typical wonderful animation that you come to expect from the studio. I thought the animation was certainly the highlight of the film and especially the beautiful detail in every aspect of the picture. The highlight of the film would have be the sequence where Goofy is looking in a mirror and at first doesn't realize he's seeing a ghost.
