Oh, dude!

This isn't happening.

This is not happening.

I thought people only flew in dreams.

That's it. I'm having a nightmare.

Wake up, Casper. Come on, snap out of it.

Hey, mister. What's goin' on?

- What happened to me?

- Scram, deadbeat!

- I'm in a grave mood.

- What's his problem?

- Where's this train goin', lady?

- The processing station.

Now let me rest in peace.

Excuse me, but where am I?

That's simple, fog boy. Too close to me.

- Let me go.

- Later, dude.

What are you trying to do? Kill me?

No, wait! Look out! You're gonna hit the...

How'd they do that?

"Welcome to Deedstown."

This looks like a quiet place.

I hope someone here can help me.

Pardon me, sir. I'm new here and...

Well, welcome to Deedstown, sonny.

A ghost!

- A ghost!

- A ghost? Where?

He must be seein' things.

What's goin' on?


What's goin' on? Wait. Come back.

Tell me what's happening.

What's everybody goin' crazy for?


I don't see any ghost.

Me? I'm no ghost.

My feet! I am a ghost!


This is Captain Carson speaking.

The uniform of the day is...

The X-Files T-shirt!

Dad's breakfast!

- T minus four minutes and counting.

- I know! I know!

- Dad, when did you go to bed?

- Early. 2am.


I was working on these sketches.

What do you think?

Nice, if you live on Zeta Alpha 5.

Just what this town needs - fresh blood!

Out with the old, in with the new.

No! In with the food! Eat!


- I'm on a diet.

- Fine. More for me.

Don't forget. Tonight's my open house

at school. I want you to see my poster.

After I tear down the old Applegate place.

- Not the mansion.

- Don't start.

It's the first phase of my renovation

of the town, and the mayor loves it.

But I like that old mansion. It's really spooky.

No more supernatural stuff. I'll see you later.

Don't forget. Tonight's my open house.

Parents are manda...


OK, to the left, Stan!

Make room here.

Wide load. Give us some room.

Stop the demolition.

You don't have our permission.

Stop the demolition.

You don't have our permission.

Save Applegate Mansion.

Save Applegate Mansion.

You don't have our permission.

Stop the demolition.

Hold it right there, buddy! That's far enough.

We won't trade our landmarks

for crass, commercial eyesores.

No, we won't.

No more burger stands.

Wait till Carson gets here.

Please, ladies and gentlemen.

I have an announcement to make.

Just listen to me for one second.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are not the enemy.

We are here to improve our town. We're doing

that by giving you a brand-new mini-mall.

- We don't need a new mini-mall!

- Please.

The first thing we've got to do

is tear down this dilapidated wreck.

This house survived the decades

and we'll make sure it survives you.

Look, lady, cut me some slack.

This place is fallin' apart.

The best thing is to replace it

with something useful.

Like what? Another burger stand?

Not another burger stand!

Stop the building, we demand!

Not another burger stand!

Stop the building, we demand!

Ladies and gentlemen,

whether you like it or not,

in about two seconds this place

is gonna become kindling wood.

My apologies. Stan, level this puppy.

Quick! The human wall!

I'm calling the sheriff.

Bull... Doz... Er.

Bull... Doz... Er.

Bull... Doz... Er.

Don't ya get it, bone bag?

Bull... Doz... Er.



Gangway, fleshies! Let him through.

Where are they?

Run for your lives!

Missed me. Missed me, skinnard.

He's down for the count.

Fleshie, you're mine,

cos possession is nine tenths of the law!

Get away from me!

You hate me. You really hate me!
