Trivia

In 1973, an edited (and silent) version of the cartoon was released as a cartridge for the Fisher-Price Movie Viewer. The small manual, hand crank-operated toy required no batteries and could be played forward or in reverse at any variable speed determined by the user. The viewer itself looked like a cream-colored plastic super-8 camera with a multi-colored circular hand crank on one side and a small plastic window that provided a light source on the other. One end had a small magnifying glass view hole, while the other end had a space for the rectangular movie cartridge. To experience this flicking picture show, the child would insert the yellow cartridge and crank away, watching the movie through the eyepiece. The viewer used an 8mm strip of film that was permanently looped on the inside of the cartridge so that at the end of any particular strip, the clip would simply begin again. See more »

A Classic
19 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a classic Disney Halloween cartoon. 4 ghosts, who are bored because they have no one to scare, read in the newspaper that Mickey, Donald, and Goofy have a ghost hunting business. So, they call them up, and the results are hysterical. THis cartoon, along with "Trick or Treat" are the definitive Disney halloween cartoons.
