Fun Fact Friday- The Hitchhiking Ghosts

Did you know that the Hitchhiking Ghosts from Disney’s Haunted Mansion had names?  I just recently discovered this fun piece of trivia!

The names of this ghostly trio are Gus (the prisoner) , Phineas (the traveler), and Ezra (Skeleton).


The Hitchhiking Ghosts’ names were not originally a part of the Haunted Mansion storyline.  The names are thought to have been originated and popularized by the cast members.

The ghosts are so popular that they’ve even been the subject of artwork by Annie Leibovitz.
