Freeze Frame! - Gooseflesh 9000

Mickey, Donald and Goofy were in fact the original ghostbusters, chasing down troublesome spirits in the 1937 cartoon Lonesome Ghosts. They were the proprietors of Ajax Ghost Exterminators. Their phone number, as listed in a newspaper advertisement, was the fitting Gooseflesh 9000.
