* This is a common interpretation of the Ghost Host and the Happy Haunts from ''Ride/TheHauntedMansion'' and other attractions at DisneyThemeParks. This is supported by the line in "Grim Grinning Ghosts", "They pretend to terrorize," implying that, like with [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas the citizens of Halloween Town]], it's all in good fun for them.
** This is more blatant in the ExpandedUniverse material, specifically [[Film/TheHauntedMansion the movie]] and the game, where the ghosts are the victims that the heroes need to save.
