ABOUT THE FIGURES
The Hitchhiking Ghosts are a trio of infamous hosts that are located near the end of The Haunted Mansion in the Disney theme parks.
“Ah, there you are and just in time. There's a little matter I forgot to mention: beware of hitchhiking ghosts! ...Ha ha ha ha ha haaa. They have selected you to fill our quota and they'll haunt until you return. Now I will raise the safety bar, and a ghost will follow you home. Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaa."
The Hitchhiking Ghosts are three resident spirits of the Haunted Mansion known as Phineas AKA The Traveler, Ezra AKA The Skeleton, and Gus AKA The Prisoner. As hitchhiking ghosts they use their ghostly powers to haunt mortals that cross paths with the mansion, working to fill up a quota from mansion officials.
The three got their semi-official names from a cast-member created backstory for the mansion called The Ghost Gallery. Since the story's creation, the names have been frequently affiliated with the trio in merchandise and the ride itself.
In 2011, Walt Disney World began further characterizing the trio in the attraction. Phineas' character was inspired by John Candy and Chris Farley, Ezra was inspired by John Cleese, Jim Carrey and Michael Keaton, while Gus was inspired by Christopher Lloyd's character from the sitcom Taxi.
