Ghoul Grumps is a Halloween-themed spin-off of Game Grumps that began on October 25th, 2013, hosted by Arin and Danny. Their monster aliases named Frankenraptor and BLEHnny.

Theme lyricsEdit

Arin: Hey I'm ghoul


Both: And we're the Ghoul Grumps!

Secret MessagesEdit

At the end of each of the intro clips, a secret message is played backward, which is different every time.

In 2013, the messages were more menacing due to more vocal effects. From 2014 onward, the messages are only given an echo effect in addition to the creepy noises and being played backwards.

Main Article: A Message About Ghoul Grumps

In 2018, with the 10 Minute Power Hour and Game Grumps Live Streams taking up much of their schedule, Ghoul Grumps had been relegated to a single episode, angering some fans enough to send negative feedback onto other videos. On November 6th, 2018, Arin posted a video on the channel apologizing for forgetting the series, and promised to make up for it with a horror-themed Jingle Grumps this year.

Ghoul Grumps: Nightmare Before XmasEdit

On December 11th, 2018, Game Grumps debuted Ghoul Grumps: Nightmare Before Xmas as a way for Arin to make up for forgetting about Ghoul Grumps in October until the last minute. It debuted with the horror game Granny.

On September 12th, 2019, Arin confirmed in Is Ghoul Grumps happening!? on The Grumps channel that the 2019 Ghoul Grumps will happen in October as normal meaning that Ghoul Grumps: Nightmare Before Xmas was a one-off event.

Trivia Edit

  • The Grump Heads for the Ghoul Grumps: Nightmare Before Xmas run are based on the two faces of the Mayor of Halloween Town, from the Disney film Nightmare Before Christmas. The logo was designed by Brady Hartel, along with some assistance from Jonathan Kim, both of whom are artists at Lab Zero Games. Art for the branding was also provided by regular contributors TopSpinTheFuzzy and Krooked_Glasses. [1]
