The Best Pal He'll Ever Have was the seventh story of Kelly Green's Haunted Mansion Fancomics, being a comic story written & drawn by Kelly Green. It features the Ghost Host, Master Gracey (as a distinct individual) and the Hatbox Ghost. Goofy's distinctive chuckle is heard, but he does not appear in person.
As the Ghost Host goes through a trying day giving tours to rude mortals, trying to cope with Master Gracey's whims, and making sure the Hatbox Ghost doesn't sneak back into the Mansion, he reflects on the only person who really likes him — himself.
- This story is the first of Kelly Green's Haunted Mansion Fancomics to acknowledge the Hatbox Ghost's disappearance from the real-life The Haunted Mansion (1969) in terms of his being banished in-universe. She later expanded on this premise in Never Think Out Loud (2012) and Meanwhile in the Attic (2012). It would also be referenced in another unlicensed Haunted Mansion comic, The Misadventures of Miss Ghast (2016), and in the official Disney Kingdoms' Haunted Mansion (2016).
