The Goopy Ghost at St. Patrick's Day
September 2018 by V. R. Duin


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 other real ghost sound effects should make kids believe in ghosts and want to scare up other imaginative friends.

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. Sounds help children learn about their world.

Ghosts may make animal sounds. Barking, howling, shrieking, snarling, snorting or growling noises are common. What's not to love about the slithering, creeping, hovering, crawling, scratching, burrowing and wiggling sounds of hooves, paws, fins, flippers, wings, tails or claws?

A gnawing, scratching and scampering rat spirit may never be caught. A lyrebird spirit may return to protect its territory. Its noises of ringing school bells, blaring car alarms, pounding construction hammers, grinding chain saws, or blasting gunfire may continue after residents escape the haunt.

Can ghosts make human ghost sounds? It may be possible for high-energy spirits to make chattering voices, hushing whispers, shrill screams, squeaking sneezes, rasping coughs or calls of distress. Imagine the excitement of piercing whistles or wretched bursts of laughter. OOO-OOO-YES!

Ghosts may call out to people with messages or by name. Ghosts may answer to their names from a past existence. Ghosts may teach people to listen to one another, especially when they are hearing haunting noises together. Belief in ghosts is one of the world's best discoveries.

An oasis in a desert may look real. With the addition of splashing noises, the image seems more possible. Ghosts that make fun scary ghost sounds may give stronger proof for belief in ghosts than mere sightings. Seeing may not be believing.

Can things make scary ghost noises? Ghostly encounters seem removed from past forms or conditions. People may believe they're going crazy when they hear dripping, gurgling, sloshing or running water sounds in areas where there is no water to be found.

Sounds get attention. Could anyone relax with water sounds filling the room? OOO-OOO-NO! Imagine the excitement of hearing heavy footsteps or hoofbeats coming closer. Test your fear at

Would a place seem haunted without ghostly sounds? Slamming doors could mean Goopy is raiding the refrigerator. In the video below, is the refrigerator haunted? Is the ghost screeching “it's empty”? There is no quiz at the end of the viewing.

Following sound may help find the source. Is it rising, falling, coming, going or staying in just one place? Is the timer ready to ring? Ghosts can make vibrations in different frequencies. Real-to-life sounds are vibrations from pressure, compression or other movements.

Can ghosts create music and song? Proof may come streaming through the night. A ghost may cause vibrations of air and water to reach a listener's ear. From hip-hop to rock, talent goes viral. Songs may make listeners believe in ghosts.

What music is playing? If the song is Goopy Ghost at Christmas by talented singer and songwriter Carlos Wilde, it deserves a lively response. “OOO-OOO-OOO”, “OOO-OOO-YES” and “OOO-OOO-NO” 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?

Who else is here? How can pages of books, magazines or newspapers be turning when reading materials are digital? Who is reading? What are they reading? Are they reading Goopy Ghost books? If so, try to borrow them for your own reading fun.

Readings aloud are recommended. Add fun and easy ghost ooo sounds to each reading. Take these books on travels. Laugh with the children in your lives. Everyone loves fun ghost stories. Add fun ghost sounds to the readings. OOO-OOO-YES! What can be more fun than Goopy's favorite sound?

Ghosts may make things seem better and more exciting than they are. The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena ASSAP is a charity and learned society that investigates sightings and sounds.

Why is the doorbell ringing and ringing? When the door is answered, nobody is there. Recess bells in the middle of the night also are worrisome. Are we imagining things, running late, or is this trickery with royalty-free music and sounds from

Why is this sound activity happening at set times and mostly at night? With dogs barking and cats hissing, something has to be there. These animals hear better than people. Are these noises getting attention from another ghost detector?

Have competitions with ghost ooo sound effects. Who can make the most realistic, the funniest, the scariest, the silliest, the noisiest or the longest string of OOO-OOO-OOO sounds? Draw others into the fun and games with scary ghost noises and real ghost sound effects.

Real ghost sound effects improve with practice. Sweep the sound charts with chants of your own “OOO-OOO-OOO” ghost sounds. OOO-OOO-YES! Ghost sounds are not just a craze. OOO-OOO-NO! They are a good use of time, effort and energy for Halloween and every day in between.

Can ghost sounds be put to good use? The rising tide of robocalls, spam calls and spoofing need not go unanswered. Ghost noises may turn the tables on the intrusions of harping telemarketers, political parties and hucksters. They are ghastly.

Use “OOO-OOO-OOO”, eerie sounds, thundering noises or play the following video for them. Scary ghost noises are the right answer. They can't be used to fake permission. Cons may promise to “call back”. Don't believe them. They are not ghostly. OOO-OOO-NO!
