Jeff dons his “Chef” hat and offers a synopsis of a recent Haunted Mansion presentation he delivered at the fall gathering of the Golden Gate Disneyana Club on this week’s episode of Mousetalgia. From the Mansion’s architectural origins to the great haunt debate (should it be scary or should it be spooky?), we examine a few of the interesting elements that make the Haunted Mansion such an unforgettable and fascinating attraction. Next, join Andreas Deja and Carol Police at the Walt Disney Family Museum and report for a talk about “Art and Character Development in Walt Disney’s Bambi,” featuring an in-depth look at the groundbreaking artwork created by Tyrus Wong for the film’s production. Plus – deep-sixing Disneyland attractions, Little Mermaid Second Screen Live screenings, another view of the Villains event – and more.

  • Thanks, Dusty Sage and BradyNBradleysMom! We always look forward to October at the Mousetalgia Clubhouse… there are always so many great things to talk about. We’ve got more seasonal shows coming up in the next couple weeks, too, so stay tuned.

    I hope that helps.
