(Re)Animations: County Ghost

Whether its a spook, specter or spirit, ghosts have found a way to haunt our imagination time and again in print, film and animation. Sometimes the imagination they haunt just happens to belong to a talented, creative individual such as Mike Geiger.

A veteran of Ren & Stimpy and Total Drama Island, Geiger's most recent production is a web series entitled County Ghost. With four webisodes to date, Geiger has been quick to establish a slapstick sense of humor of the Coyote/Roadrunner ilk that results in something far more entertaining (and kid-safe) than his previous work, Cuddle Sticks.

At about 3 minutes a piece, each Flash-produced websiode of County Ghost gives us a glimpse into the life of a short country bumpkin as he struggles to get rid of a pesky ghost that has taken a liking to haunting his home. With a lack of dialogue the show relies heavily on physical gags and sound effects to deliver its rather entertaining punchline.
