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)

Goopy's fun scary ghost sounds, scary ghost noises, ghost ooo sound effects and real ghost sound effects should make kids believe in ghosts and scare up some noise. Sounds of real life can be scarier than ghost 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. Sensations help children sort their world.

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

Sounds of real life can be scarier than ghost sounds. Could lyrebird spirits forever protect territories with blaring car alarms, pounding hammers, grinding chain saws or recess bell sounds in the middle of the night?

Do you cringe 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?


Ghosts may beckon someone by name. They may answer to names from a prior existence. They may teach people to listen closely to one another. Belief in another dimension may be a life-changing discovery.

A desert oasis may look real. With splashing, the image seems more realistic. Ghosts accompanied with vibrant sonorities give stronger proof for belief than mere sightings. Seeing may not be believing.

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 water is present.

Sounds arouse emotions. Who could relax with water swishing into the room? Imagine the excitement of heavy footsteps or hoofbeats coming closer. Test your fear at

Silence is boring. Could slamming doors mean Goopy is raiding the refrigerator. Is the refrigerator haunted? Is the ghost screeching “it's empty”? There is no quiz at the end of the video.

Where's the source? Is it rising, falling, coming, going or staying in place? Is the timer ready to ring? Step forth as a paranormal inspector. Figure out what's resonating in the video below.

Why call a paranormal investigator or psychic to investigate? Learn for yourself if ghosts can make vibrations in different frequencies. Real-to-life resonances vibrate with pressure, compression or other movements.

Proof may come streaming through the night. Ghostly vibrations of air and water may reach a listener's ear. From hip-hop to rock, talent can go viral. Ballads are handed down, filling generations with chords.

What music is playing? If the tune is Goopy Ghost at Christmas by talented singer and songwriter Carlos Wilde, it deserves lively response. “OOO-OOO-OOO” ear worm chanted by Goopy fans calls for a Carlos replay.

Support Carlos Wilde's Goopy Ghost music. Direct good spirits to this amazing artist's Other Productions. Here are the Wilde-Goopy lyrics to sing and play along:

(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.
If the bright orange ghost
Returns in Santa's sack
Would you let it stay
Or would you send it back?

Can digital reading materials crinkle like books, magazines or newspapers? Who is reading? What are they reading? Are they reading Goopy Ghost books? Try borrowing them for kicks.

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 favorite “ooo-ooo-ooo” jingle?

Ghosts may make things seem far fetched and implausible. The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena ASSAP is a charity and learned society that investigates sightings and sounds.

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

Why is this racket occurring at set times after twilight? With dogs barking and cats hissing, something has to be out there. These animals hear better than people. Is anyone else paying attention?

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

Practice improves performance. Sweep the sound charts with ooo chants! Ghost sounds are not a craze. They make good use of time, effort and energy for Halloween and every day in between.

Set yourself apart with ghost sounds. Get fun scary ghost sounds for your ring-tone. Stand out from among folks with mundane tones. Download applications to impress friends or to make ghosts feel at home.

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

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