Scaredy Ghost

There’s a ghost hiding in a closet in Who Killed Who?, the great Tex Avery Detective Story. When the bulldog detective realises it’s a ghost, he shrinks and runs away.

The ghost thinks being scared is really funny, until (s)he sees a mouse. (The ghost starts out with a man’s voice but switches to a woman’s for the purpose of the next gag).

Hey, ghost! A theatre audience is watching you and can see you’ve pulled up your skirt.

Yeah, that’s right. See for yourself.

The ghost suddenly turns modest.

The cartoon has no animators credited. Ray Abrams, Ed Love and Preston Blair, I suspect.
