Eek! Oh! Ouch!
That goopy, ghostly goo
held out its flaming hand
and blew and blew and blew.
(The Goopy Ghost of Halloween)

Move over Santa Claus and Easter Bunny. Make way for Goopy Ghost to do away with tricks and scare up fun treats for kids' goodie bags to save Halloween.

Scare Up Fun Treats

Beneath the Surface? Goopy can do for Halloween what Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are doing for other holidays. Goopy moves with the flow. Who says flimsy form can't accommodate bottle rockets?

Great Heights? Visions push folks to amazing discoveries. Change comes with whimsy and wild chance on far-fetched notions. Halloween is ready for change. Goopy is the perfect candidate to deliver it.

Everything Clicks? This last outdoor fling before extreme weather is endangered. Places ban door-to-door, trick-or-treat “solicitation”. Goopy's delivery plan restores safety and value to Halloween.

Kids' Goodie Bags

Hit Men? Sensitivities get crushed by outside, first impressions. When signs of ghosts give people goosebumps, ghostly dignity is shattered. Santa may get these vibes when kids cry and turn away from him.

Bucket List? Goopy returns to atone for past grief delivered on Halloween. This ghost can show friendship and sincerity by delivering goodie bags filled with parent-approved gifts and treats to kids.

Custom Content? Goopy may not feel at home in an empty goodie bag. His charm glows when he is in good company. This ghost has a wild side, but he gives children joy. They sense his kind and gentle nature.

Bump in the Night

Misunderstanding? Some folks cast wicked meanings on Halloween. A few pumpkins get squashed. Silly tricks happen. Mischief is caused by people. Some of them dress up like ghosts. Goopy is a good ghost.

Still Life? Not all spirits want to make someone's hair stand on end. Some have cobweb textures. Others leave cold breezes in passing. The pumpkin ghost leaves behind a trail of goo for lasting bliss.

Structured Environment? Goopy reminds parents goop is not poop. Pumpkin goop is zestful. It may take a while to clear the residue from homes. Who would banish this amaze-ball source of merriment?

Do Away with Tricks

Scary Time? Halloween suffered in the face of Covid infections. Candy-delivery devices kept kids outside of buildings and away from other celebrants. Quarantining complicated treat distribution.

Pandemic Casualty? Safety concerns call for creativity. Drive-thru and virtual events or zip lines and chutes are not ideal ways to deliver gifts. Why not let a good ghost keep the Halloween spirit alive?

Soapbox? Blood and gore have not totally overtaken Halloween traditions or big screen sensations. Everyday invitations bring Goopy into homes for child-friendly content and spirited role play.

Halloween Belongs to Ghosts

Hands of Time? Goopy remains steadfast. Kids often change their minds about what they want to be for Halloween. Behind masks, adults can try out secret longings without giving themselves away.

Concrete Dreams? Questions about ghosts remain. Was it the wrappers or the candy that forever changed Halloween? What is the point in creating projects or putting forth visions if nobody notices them?

Shop Guy? Ghost times with children should be light-hearted moments of escape. Who isn't anxiously waiting to fling open the door when Goopy knocks to fill an evening with magical goop?
