Ghostal Telegraph

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    The fat, jolly ghost voiced by Tex Avery in Ghost Wanted (Jones, 1940) sends the silent kiddie ghost a telegram -- saying simply “Boo!” -- on the letterhead of this telegraph company. It is a parody of The Postal Telegraph, a rival of Western Union which went out of business in the early forties.
