In this episode, DoomBuggies talks to WED Imagineer Rolly Crump in an exclusive interview. Crump, who worked directly with Walt Disney in the conceptualization and design of Disneyland, was assigned to the development of the Haunted Mansion, where he worked with Imagineer Yale Gracey on many proposed scenes and special effects. In this interview, we talk to Crump about working with Gracey, his relationship with Walt Disney, and his ideas for the Haunted Mansion. We also speak about the recent Marvel comic that is based on his original Haunted Mansion concepts that came to be known as a “Museum of the Weird.” Also, Disneyland brings the Tightrope Girl to life; WDI-designed candles appear at Sundance; Drew Struzan art is shown at Forest Lawn, and more.

  1. I usually don’t like podcasts about Disneyland, but this one was entertaining and enlightening. I can’t wait to pick up Crump’s book. You can bet I’ll be tuning in to your show in the future.

  2. Thanks – I’ll always try to take a slightly different take on things for the Spook Show. Glad you liked it! Rolly is always an entertaining guy, and it was a pleasure to speak with him.
