Homer the Happy Ghost is a fictional supernatural-humor character published by Atlas Comics, the 1950s predecessor of Marvel Comics. The title character first appeared in Homer, The Happy Ghost #1 (March 1955); although strongly resembling Casper, he possesses freckles, a Tintin-style cowlick and a halo. All of Homer's stories were written by Stan Lee and drawn by Dan DeCarlo; the title lasted until 1958. In addition, Atlas published two issues of Adventures of Homer Ghost (June & Aug. 1957.)

In 1969, Marvel revived the character and title for four issues, lasting until May 1970.
