Ezra is the ghost of a male human.
Phineas, a lanky skeleton with a predatory grin, is one of the Haunted Mansion's happy haunts — specifically, one of the three Hitchhiking Ghosts. As with many of the Mansion's inhabitants, Ezra's biography and circumstances of death are the subject of a thousand contradictory rumors, though it is believed he is the brother of the Hatbox Ghost (due to their sheer resemblance). Ezra appears to be buried in the Mansion's family plot, his being a gravestone simply bearing the name "Ezra", with neither a last name or an epitaph.
Much like his fellows Phineas and Gus, Ezra awaits at the Mansion's exit, promising to follow mortal guests home and pester and prank them until they return to the Mansion (which they have done on several occasions). Ezra is characterized by a boisterous, self-aggrandizing personality and careless disdain of other people's feelings, though he is genuinely close to his companions Phineas and Gus.
At some point prior to 2002, all three Hitchhiking Ghosts somehow got trapped in a crate which found its way to the House of Mouse's overcrowded storage room, from which guests of the house would occasionally release them, only for them to be stuffed back in there after a few hours. However, it seems that the Hitchhikers eventually returned to their normal Mansion dwellings.
Behind the scenes Edit
Ezra first appeared as a part of the Haunted Mansion attraction in Disneyland, which opened in 1969.
