The Ghost and Molly McGee (working title, The Curse of Molly McGee) is an American animated musical comedy television series, created by Bill Motz and Bob Roth.


Molly is an optimistic tween, who lives to make the world a better place. Scratch is a grumpy ghost, whose joy comes from spreading misery. When one of Scratch's spells backfires, he finds himself forever cursed in Molly's presence.



Bill Motz and Bob Roth had developed the series for years under the working title The Curse of Piper McGee. It originally featured the titular girl moving to Transylvania with her family where she awakens a vampire called The Count who curses her, only for Piper to joyously consider him her friend, much to his chagrin.[1] This version was pitched to Nickelodeon who passed on the project. Years later, Motz and Roth would redevelop the series and pitch it to Disney who accepted it.

News of the series was first announced on July 23, 2019, by senior vice president Animation Strategy, Meredith Roberts Quill. Emmy® Award-winning duo Bill Motz and Bob Roth will serve as executive producers with Emmy Award-winner Steve Loter.

Disney Television Animation studio has added to its roster of world-class talent, securing overall development deals with top animation creators and artists including Bruce Smith, Jeff Howard, Kate Kondell, Stevie Wermers, Kevin Deters, Howy Parkins, Amy Higgins, Devin Bunje, Nick Stanton, Noah Z. Jones, Mike Roth, John Infantino, Jeremy Shipp, Ryan Gillis, Steve Marmel, Natasha Kline, and Sabrina Cotugno.

Roberts said, "Our studio is bustling as we continue to bolster our development slate of projects across multiple platforms. We are delighted to embark on this journey with Bill, Bob, and Steve with The Curse of Molly McGee, one of many projects we are excited to see come to life for kids and families to enjoy. Along with the numerous projects in development from this group of incredibly talented creators, we are poised to lead Disney's TV animation legacy of inspired storytelling and beloved characters into the future."

On September 24, 2020, Bill Motz revealed that the series, originally titled The Curse of Molly McGee, was renamed to The Ghost and Molly McGee, saying that the series is about the relationship between Molly and Scratch, and thought that the new title would reflect that better.[2]

The series was originally intended for a 2020 release, but ended up being delayed until 2021 likely as a result of COVID-19.

A preview of the series aired on May 1, 2021, during the "Halfway to Halloween" event on Disney Channel. The series premiered on October 1, 2021 as part of the "Calling All the Monsters" event.

On August 31, 2021, ahead of the series premiere, Disney Channel renewed the series for a second season.[3]

In September 2021, it was reported that episodes 3 to 5 would see an early release on Disney+ on October 6, 2021, as part of a new distribution strategy.[4]




  • This is the second animated series to feature a Thai-American protagonist after Amphibia.
