Welcome, Mortals, to the DoomBuggies Spook Show, a new podcast from DoomBuggies.com. The DoomBuggies Spook Show is dead-icated to bringing you a bit of Haunted Mansion news, haunting theme park happenings, and Haunted Mansion history in every show. We’ll be focusing on both reminiscing about the history and development of the beloved Disney Haunted Mansion attractions (and other similarly dark rides), as well as the fan culture that surrounds the Mansion.
We have a double feature for you today. You’ll find our premiere episode as well as our current episode of the DoomBuggies podcast!
In our premiere episode, we talk to Marvel Comics editor Bill Rosemann and Vice President of Publishing David Gabriel to discuss Marvel’s upcoming series “Seekers of the Weird,” based on Imagineer Rolly Crump’s 1965-era designs for the “Museum of the Weird,” a proposed Disneyland attraction intended to complement the Haunted Mansion. We also discuss Rolly’s concepts and how the comic fits into the Disney universe. Also, meet Megan, a Haunted Mansion fan who had a unique and memorable experience inside of the Mansion during this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Plus, the latest Mansion news, an introduction to the podcast, and listener ghost stories.
In the current episode, host Jeff Baham discusses “The Haunting,” the 1963 film by Robert Wise which was an inspiration for the Haunted Mansion during its development. We also review Sam Gennawey’s new book, “The Disneyland Story,” and discover where the Mansion fits into the overall development of Disneyland Park. The episode also includes gift-giving ideas for Haunted Mansion fans, news items, and more.
