Paydirt is a ghost town. Well, nearly a ghost town. Five ghosts and one man live in Paydirt. One of the ghosts, Spook, is unique: he doesn't like to scare people, preferring to play in the old mine shafts. But when the other ghosts gang up on him, Spook must prove himself by trying to scare away the last old man in Paydirt -- Grizzly Pete, the prospector.
Spook's first attempt to frighten Grizzly Pete fails. Curious about the prospector, Spook waits until Grizzly Pete is fast asleep and then sneaks into his dreams. There he witnesses the prospector's fondest wish -- to discover gold deep in the mine. The next day Spook follows Grizzly Pete into the mine and attempts again to scare him off.
Grizzly Pete is tired of being bothered by ghosts and decides to frighten Spook instead. Grizzly Pete tells Spook, "I'm going to tin you." Spook doesn't believe that a ghost can be kept in a tin, but when Grizzly Pete lets him peek into the shiny tin, Spook spots a wide-eyed ghost staring out at him. Frightened, Spook speeds out of the mine.
When Spook tells the other ghosts what has happened, they don't believe him and all rush off to Grizzly Pete's cabin to scare him. But Grizzly Pete stops them cold when he shows mean old Snark the ghost in the tin. Grizzly Pete smiles to himself as the ghosts race down the mountain and away from him and his tin.
Resting by a lake, Spook sees a ghost in the water. When he tries to speak to him, Spook realizes that the new ghost is really his reflection. He then understands how Grizzly Pete has tricked him and the other ghosts!
