Synopsis

Can a Bus full of Ghosts turn into a Bus full of fun?

This one can!

When Cheech's school bus stops in a graveyard, the kids who get on are no ordinary passengers. They're ghost kids. The Cheecharrones try everything to get rid of them—dressing up in scary costumes, singing anti-ghost songs, chasing them in a wild game of tag. . . .

Wait a minute, these ghosts are fun! At least the kids think so. But Cheech is still scared of ghosts! Can the Cheecharrones convince him to let their new friends stay?

In this silly, spooky tale, Cheech Marin's laugh-a-minute humor puts a fresh spin on the idea that being different isn't always a bad thing.
