Eight Lives of Sherman Phelps

The eight ghosts, with the orange one about to possess Sherman's best friend.

Sherman Phelp's Ghosts are the main antagonists of the short lived animated series, The 9th Life of Sherman Phelps.

In the cartoons, Sherman Phelps is a cheerful cat on his ninth life who always seems to have a different occupation alongside his unnamed best friend in every episode. However, Sherman's previous eight lives cannot get into Heaven until Sherman's ninth life is dead too, so the spirits of Sherman's previous eight lives possess his best friend and attempt to kill him. This usually results in the spirit comically failing and at the butt of slapstick, and leaving the best friend in trouble with an elephant character.
