I am seeing numerous Facebook posts saying that The Ghoul has joined Froggy in the afterlife. Overday!

There was no bigger influence on my entertainment childhood than The Ghoul. This one is hard to take.

I remember catching The Ghoul on TV 20 when ever I could. Also meet him a few times at local conventions in the 80's.
