Headless Cabbie
Voiced byDan Castellaneta

The Headless Cabbie is a ghost of a cabbie who lost his head when he gave a ride to a mysterious woman.

Urban legend


He was once a lonely Cabbie who gave rides through the park. One night, a mysterious woman stopped the Cabbie asking to help find her lost dog (a Scottish Terrier). She offered the Cabbie a scarf to help keep him warm. As they were going down the road, their surroundings started to get darker and foggier. Then the woman heard her dog barking, and told the cabbie to go faster. The dog then went through a tunnel, and the woman told the cabbie to follow it. After they went through the tunnel, a crazed man, who had a golden hook for an arm, attacked them. The crazed man almost got them, but then the Cabbie started to go faster and faster as the woman started to become more and more demonic. She ordered the Cabbie to go even faster to catch her dog, but the Cabbie's scarf got caught on a low branch, and twisted around the Cabbie's neck until he was decapitated, thus transforming him into the Headless Cabbie. The legend says that on a dark, foggy night in the fall, the Headless Cabbie haunts the park. First, the sound of the demon dog is heard; then comes a beating sound on the cobblestones; finally, the evil laugh of the ghost lady is heard, and she is seen being driven by the Headless Cabbie in his carriage.
