  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Lonesome Ghosts Poster 4438.jpg

One of the most popular Classic Disney Shorts, this Mickey Mouse cartoon from 1937 is centered around Mickey, Donald Duck and Goofy, who are running a Ghost Exterminating business as they are tricked into looking around a haunted house by the titular quartet of ghosts, who proceed to unleash their wrath upon our heroes. Unlike previous shorts themed around spooky stuff, Hilarity Ensues.

On a side note, these ghost characters (or at least ghosts similar in appearance) would later make an appearance, not in a Disney cartoon, but in a Walter Lantz cartoon "A Haunting We Will Go", featuring the Mel Blanc voiced Lil' Eightball being tricked into coming into their house. That short was also directed by the same director of this short, Burt Gillet.

This short, while it did not make it onto the actual list, made it as a runner up on Jerry Beck's The 50 Greatest Cartoons.
