Our goopy ghost looked very hard
to find a wee leprechaun guard.
At last, through the trees,
the ghost heard a sneeze.
A leprechaun couldn't be far!
(The Goopy Ghost at St. Patrick's Day)

Believe in ghosts. Enjoy fun scary ghost sounds, scary ghost noises, ghost “OOO” sound effects and real ghost sound effects. Recess bells in the middle of the night may be scarier.

Ghost “OOO” Sound Effects

Sound is Powerful. Goopy favors the “OOO-OOO-OOO” repetition of the three “o” letters in his name. These repetitions can be pronounced like “o” in Goopy or “o” in Ghost. The five senses help children sort out their world.

Happy Daze? Add thrilling ghost “OOO” sounds to readings. Take ghost books on travels. Laugh with children. Everyone loves zestful ghost stories and ghost echoes. What is more fun than Goopy's “OOO-OOO-OOO” jingle?

Sharp Note? Have competitions with Goopy's “OOO-OOO-OOO”. Who makes the ghostliest, the funniest, the scariest, the silliest, the noisiest or the longest string of echoes? Draw others into the boogie of fun and games.

Fresh Takes? Practice improves performance. Extremes with “OOO” chants could sweep the sound charts! Ghost sounds are not a craze. They make good use of time, effort and energy for Halloween and every day in between.

Turn up the Volume? Get fun scary ghost sounds for your ring-tone. Stand out from among folks with mundane tones. Avoid over-communicating. Download applications to impress friends and make ghosts feel at home.

Fun Scary Ghost Sounds

Dreamscape? Is barking, howling, shrieking, snarling, snorting or growling noise common? Are slithering, creeping, hovering, crawling, scratching, digging or wiggling hooves, paws, fins, flippers, wings, tails and claws real?

Behind the Scene? Who cringes with piercing whistles or wretched bursts of laughter? Can high-energy spirits make chattering voices, hushing whispers, shrill screams, squeaking sneezes, rasping coughs or distress calls?

Icebreaker? Can ghosts beckon someone by name? Do they answer to their names from prior existences? Can they teach people to listen closely to one another? Search in alien dimensions may bring life-changing discoveries.

On the Dot? Why is this racket occurring at set times after twilight? With dogs barking and cats hissing, couldn't something be out there? These animals hear better than people. Is anyone else paying attention?

Double Take? Can digital reading materials crinkle like printed books, magazines or newspapers? Who is reading? What are they reading? Are they reading Goopy Ghost books? If so, can they be borrowed for kicks?

Scary Ghost Noises

Game Face? Ghostly encounters may extend from past forms or conditions. People may believe they're going crazy when they hear the din of dripping, gurgling, sloshing or running water when and where no liquid is present.

Rain Date? Who could relax with water swishing into the room? Imagine the excitement of heavy footsteps or hoofbeats coming closer. Sounds arouse emotions and elicit responses. At fear can be tested.

Sand Castles? When the door is answered, who is there? Recess bells in the middle of the night are worrisome. Are we imagining things, running late or is this trickery from royalty-free music and sounds purchased online?

Mr. Refrigerator? Silence can be boring. What's going on with the refrigerator below? Is the chill box haunted? Is a disappointed ghost screeching “it's empty”? There is no quiz at the end of this video assignment.

Last Stand? Can the source be tracked? Is it rising, falling, coming, going or staying in place? Is it random? Is a timer ready to ring? Step forth as a paranormal inspector. Try to figure out what's resounding in the below video.

Believe in Ghosts

Power House? A desert oasis may look real. With splashing, it seems more realistic. Ghosts accompanied with vibrant sonorities carry stronger credibility than simple ghost sightings. Seeing may not lead to believing.

Loud and Proud? Proof may stream through the night. Ghostly vibrations in air or water may reach a listener's ear. From hip-hop to rock, talent can go viral. Ballads are handed down, filling generations with calming chords.

Takeaway? There are songs about the man in the moon and Goopy. Nothing is toxic, hallucinogenic or spine chilling about these tunes. It is uplifting to sing about fantasies. People may gain touch with reality while singing.

What Music is Playing? If the tune is Goopy Ghost at Christmas by talented singer and songwriter Carlos Wilde, it deserves lively response. It calls for rapid replay. Expect “OOO-OOO-OOO” ear-worm chants from Goopy fans.

On the Sunny Side? Support Carlos Wilde's Goopy Ghost music. Direct good spirits to this amazing artist's Other Productions. Follow the Wilde-Goopy lyrics. Sing and play along for lasting impression:


(Chorus:) “This ghost sheds pumpkin goop
wherever it goes,
'cause that's what it's made of
from its head to its toes.

Santa emptied out his sack
and spread the nice, new toys
all around the Christmas tree,
such lucky girls and boys!
A brief break from work,
and Santa gathered up his sack
and up the chimney he went,
the goopy ghost on his back!
The subject quickly changed
for there was much work to do.
The elves assigned the good ghost
to a Christmas toy work crew.
But Goopy's goo peeled off
and made a mess on toys.
They would have to be replaced
for gifting to girls and boys.
(Chorus:) If the bright orange ghost
returns in Santa's sack,
would you let it stay
or would you send it back?
Goopy Ghost at Christmas”

Sound Science?

Errata? Can ghosts really make vibrations in different frequencies? Real-to-life resonances vibrate with pressure, compression or other movements. Is it an overly aggressive stance to call in a paranormal investigator or psychic?

Calling the Shots? Ghosts make things seem implausible. For those who truly are stumped by the ringing in their ears, ASSAP is available. This charitable, learned society investigates far-fetched manifestations.

Redux? Sounds of real life can be scarier than ghost sounds. Lyrebirds may forever protect territories. Their mimicry of blaring alarms, pounding hammers, grinding chain saws or recess bells can sound day and night long.

Kick Back? The rising tide of robocalls, spam calls and spoofing need not go unanswered. Scary ghost noises may shut down intrusions of harping telemarketers, political parties and hucksters. They are ghastly, not ghostly.

Sound Stage? Use “OOO-OOO-OOO” thundering noises or play the below video screeches. Inventive ghost noises are the right answer. Permission can't be feigned with them. If cons promise to “call back”, don't believe them.
