I'll tell you this, the person who wrote the Weebles Haunted House jingle should recieve some award.
Dear Lord I remembered every word of it, as i was watching it.

Last night we had some guest in the museuem and we started singing the LIBBYS LIBBYS LIBBYS song.

Amazing how this stuff can stick in your head for 35 years.

The lady who has been talking to the Kooky Spooky creator's kids and gave me the info about the cargo ship sinking offered to ask other questions about the Kooky Spookys if anyone has them.  The kids were very involved with the toys and can probably answer most questions we might have.

Post 'em if you got 'em!

Therin, here's a pic of the Avon ghost standing next to Brother Mortimer. He did make a nice addition to the family.  :)




Just a little FYI, the Avon ghost lip balm topper is called "Gilroy the Ghost" and is a lot easier (and loads cheaper) to find on eBay than Kooky Spookys.  Unless they suffer from significant damage, most Kooky Spookys on eBay go for $85 or (most of the time) higher.  I did see 2 Kooky Spookys sell for less than $40 apiece quite recently, but they were not in the best condition.  One went for only $12 (a Brother Mortimer that was slightly melted).

Hi everone,
I can shed some light on the Kooky Spooky in bags. When I was 9 or 10 My family took a trip to Disneyland and it was the same year the Haunted Mansion opened in 1969. After we rode the attraction we went gift shopping in one of New Orleans Square many gift shops. The entire Kooky Spooky display was set up in one of the shops and I remember picking Daddy Booregard. He did come in a plastic bag with a header card, What a memory that trip holds for me.

Last year I was visiting my family home went to my old bedroom closet and in a bag stored away I found Daddy Booregard. I use to call him "Daddy Glow it" for obvious reasons. It had been some 30 +  years since I last saw the little fellow and was instantly transported back in time to my youth.  I had remembered that when I got him in Disneyland all those years ago, that there were other ghost members in the collection. I went to ebay and within one year managed to find the other 5 kooky spooky family members, most with original accessories. I will try to include a picture of the current display I have of them.

I am so glad to see so much interest in these little characters and I have found some really great people collecting them. Keep up the good work with this website of which I am happy to be a new member of.

Dear DB,
              Like you, i have a strong connection with the kooky spooky line. I found my Brother Mortimer at a local 5 & 10 in Syosset, NY in the late 60's. Mine wasn't bagged and came in the classic KS packaging best known to these toys. I remember they had one of each from the entire line at this store. I wanted them all, but had to choose just one...i went with Brother Mortimer. Being already interested in guitar, i liked that he had a banjo!  I still have him to this day. [see pic] Here he is entertaining some friends.

The lady who has been answering our questions emailed the group to say she has some listings up for Kooky Spooky stuff from the designer's estate.

Normally this isn't my practice to announce ongoing auctions, but this was sent for the benefit of the group and it would not be fair if I kept the information for my own use.

If I were a Kooky Spookys collector, I'd be taking out a second mortgage to buy that stuff.  Wow, what a treasure trove.  Good thing I don't collect Kooky Spookys.

Man I loved these toys! I never remembered what they were called until I saw this thread. Thanks for rekindling the memories guys! I would love to find a set, but it sounds like they are too expensive for me.


We used to play a very rough "Kooky Spookys" game with the two girls next door. We'd bring the ghosts over, leaving the accessories safe at home, charge 'em up under their bedroom light while eating dinner, then turn out the lights, shut the door, pull the blinds, and throw the ghosts - very hard, at each other - while in total darkness. Often the game would stop while we retrieved a ghost from behind a wardrobe or on a high shelf. Sometime we worried we'd lost one for good.


Thats too funny! We used to play the exact same game!  :D Ours usually ended when one of us got hit in the face and the parents came in and made us stop!

How cool! I have that Avon ghost and always wondered where it was from. I bought it because it reminded me of the Kooky Spookys!

I used to have the Avon ghost.  Wish I still did, I remember it glowed in the dark and it came with chap stick inside it.
Long live the UMA!

I used to the one with black circles around the eyes. I remember taking him everywhere. At those prices I can't see getting another one.

Someone is sitting on a WAREHOUSE full of these.  About 15 years ago I was attending the NorthEast Paper and Ephemera Show at the Allentown Farigrouns in Allentown PA.  It was shortly after Walter Gibson, the creator of teh Shadow, had passed away.  At this show I met a dealer who ahd a bog display of Shadow paperbacks and paperwork form the Gibson estate for sale and I bought tons of this stuff for my collection.  Well, I turned the corner to go down another aisle and there was a guy with a big display of the Kooky Spooky figures.  My heart stopped!  He had tons of them and he said he wasn't having a good show.  I could understand why becuase he wanted $5.00 apiece for each uncarded figure. Most people thought that was too much to pay for a toy in the mid-1990s.  Well, I would have bought loads of the figures had I not spent most of my money on Shadow stuff.  I bought a few sets and put them away in a box somewhere--now I just need to find the box.  That's the curse of having too much junk.
  But I know this guy is out there somewhere with box loads of figures just sitting sround because he couldn;'t sell them in the 1990s.

It's so nice to find others who remember Kooky Spookys!  I discovered them when I was a kid living in Japan back in the early '70s. 

Y'know, I didn't think anything of this at the time, but I recently stumbled across a Daddy Booregard in a Japanese box. I wasn't even looking for it. I literally clicked the wrong link and there it was. But it made me come back to this thread and upon reading it, I wondered if the one you bought was in a US or Japanese box? It sounded like your were talking about the regular US boxes. Makes me wonder why, if they were sold in Japan in Japanese boxes, you would have bought one there in a US box??

Anyway, I guess in Japan they were known at "Glowing Phantom Spookies". It looks like I somehow forgot to save the picture, but when I get it in the mail, I'll post it up.

In this post I said UNCARDED.  That was an error.  THese figures were carded.  Mine are carded.  So there has to be a lot of them out there somewhere.
