The Headless Horseman was a ghost who only liked scary things that are fun instead of actually scaring people. He didn't really enjoy working for Prime Evil either. It was Prime Evil who told the Horseman to appear headless to look more scary, even though he actually had a head attached to his neck.
The Horseman was one of the ghosts who went back in time to the days of Great Grandfather Kong to frighten away the miners working at Kong's gold mine. Later, Prime Evil began to view the horseman as a traitor and decided to teach him a lesson. But the Horseman contacted the Ghostbusters via Madame Why instead and warned them that Fangster was about to steal the ancient Aztec Amulet from the lost city of Nescatutl.
Although Jake distrusted the Horseman because of what he did to this Great Grandfather in the past, the Horseman ended up saving the Ghostbusters as well as Fangster from the Sand Beast unleashed by the Sorcerer of Nescatutl. Having saved the amulet from falling into Prime Evil's clutches, Jake made his peace with the Horseman and got him a job working in a haunted house at a funfair.
The Headless Horseman first appeared in the aptly titled episode The Headless Horseman Caper.
- Although Jake claims that Headless was one of the ghosts that scared off the miners from his Great Grandfather's mine, and the Horseman confirms this, we only see Prime Evil, Brat-A-Rat, Apparitia, Fangster and Sir Trance-a-lot in the flashback.
