"Roll-a-Ghoster" is the third segment of the seventh episode of the first season of The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series. It originally aired on October 15, 1962.


The segment opens with Touche Turtle and Dum Dum working on their swordsmanship. Suddenly, the phone rings. The caller is Inspector Hawkins, and he requests Touche and Dum Dum to head over to Murky Manor and handle the resident ghost. Touche and Dum Dum arrive at Murky Manor, ring the doorbell, and meet the ghost face to face. However, the ghost shuts the door on them, but Touche manages to put his foot in the door. Once inside, the ghost drops the chandelier on them.

Afterwards, Touche and Dum Dum try different ways of getting rid of the ghost, but to no avail. However, Touche gets an idea to scare the ghost out by dressing as ghosts. But that doesn't work either. It's not until Dum Dum makes a scary look on his face that the ghost runs for his afterlife. However, that same look causes Touche to run away in terror, as well.
