In the original short, the four Lonesome Ghosts, semi-officially known as Jasper, Grubb, Boo and Moss, live in the "Old McShiver Mansion". They become bored because there was nobody left to scare and decide to hire Ajax Ghost Exterminators to come to the mansion in order for them to terrorize them. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy come to the house armed to the teeth, but are outwitted by the ghosts. However, they are scared out of the mansion when the trio falls into molasses and flour, making them appear like ghosts.
Haunted Mansion Deleted Scripts
The Lonesome Ghosts would have taken over the tour after the original mortal tour guide was dispatched by an undead arm emerging from the wall nicknamed "Harry the Arm". The Lonesomes would provide commentary and guide mortals to the wedding of "Mlle. Vampire" and "Monsieur Bogyman" and at the end of the attraction, take them through a secret passageway in the fireplace when the wedding guests cause a riot.
In the Video-game Epic Mickey, the Lonesome Ghosts make an appearance in the Wasteland's version of the Haunted Mansion, Lonesome Manor. Multiple Lonesome Ghosts appear in the series - eight instead of the original four - offering quests when they are spoken to.
