A Ghoul Is Known By His Laughter

It's late Halloween and ghouls are still roaming my neighborhood.

Ghoul. Such a great word for TV ep titles.

It substitutes so nicely for 'girl':
  • The Bad News Ghouls (''Grim & Evil,'' 4/8/2005)
  • Boys Meets Ghouls (''Milton the Monster'')
  • Ghoul of My Dreams (''Darkwing Duck,'' 10/16/1991)
  • Girls Will Be Ghouls (''The Girls Next Door,'' 10/15/2006)
  • The Most Beautiful Ghoul in the World (''The Munsters,'' 1/27/1966)
  • Showghouls (''Charmed,'' 2/20/2005)
  • A Spooky Little Ghoul Like You (''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo,'' 10/19/1985)
  • Super Ghoul (''The Groovie Goolies'')
  • To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before (''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo,'' 9/7/1985)
  • Where You Going Little Ghoul (''The Groovie Goolies'')

Rhymes with 'fool':
  • A Ghoul and His Money (''Beetlejuice,'' 10/19/1991)
  • Ghouls' Gold (''Mummies Alive!,'' 10/16/1997)
  • Nobody's Ghoul (''Deputy Dawg'')
  • Ship of Ghouls (''The Love Boat,'' 10/28/1978)

And can substitute for so many other sounds and words:
  • The Ghoul, the Bad, and the Ugly (''Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo,'' 12/8/1979)
  • Goodbye Ghoul World (''Maxie's World'')
  • Highs-Ghoul Confidential (''Beetlejuice,'' 10/21/1991)
  • Mom Always Liked Ghouls Best (''Casper'')
  • Not Ghoultry (''Casper the Friendly Ghost'')
