    I'm not so sure about fear of the unknown, and that's what scares me.

    Oh, I don't know. If I pushed a button on a vending machine, expecting a bag of chips, and a ghastly demon (like Chernabog) jumped out instead, I'd be surprised. But that's not what you're talking about, is it?

    Besides, I think those are just for Disney execs -- in the private lounge.

    Re: The Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect Thread 7: Further Realms of Fright

    I'm working on a new blog post, and it has a premise that just begs to be turned into a guessing game over here first.

    "In the HM, what full tableau (not simply an isolated effect) attracts the least notice?"

    In other words, which one inspires the least amount of commentary anywhere in Mansiondom? There are two good candidates, IMO, but one of them is arguably part of a larger tableau.

    Especially if you pushed the button for Cherry-Chernabog.

    There is a reading table of some sort in the ballroom, I believe, yes? Little scene there, which I have trouble recalling the specifics of, so there you go. Either that or the hatstand/dresser at the end of the ballroom hall, before the attic (but we've talked about that here already in passing in this thread).

    A fuller, more self-contained tableau. And both of those have gotten more bandwidth.

    Bycicle banshees? The attic exterior window? The staircase? The spooked caretaker and his dog?

    My first guess would've been the nighttime scene outside the Portrait Hallway windows, but we've done at least a bit of serious talking about it. One set of characters we never really seem to talk about is the Tea Partyers (regardless of how grammatically incorrect that may be . . .), especially the two toasting at the table. But then that could be ruled out because it's technically part of the fuller tableaux that is the Graveyard . . . ?

    This might have been discussed on GRD's old blog, but what about that small table at the 2007 refurb WDW's Haunted Mansion. It was near the drapes where the Doombuggies would enter the load area. There was a debate on FAQ boards if I remember right, where the book on that table was either opened to ghost or death.
    Was it settled on these threads?


    The only decent photos of it were on Haunted Mansion.info, but the site is not working

    Nope, nope, nope, and nope.

    The bikers have been discussed quite a bit in connection with the dates of the ghosts and whether objects the ghosts are using are part of the ghost or something picked up locally. Attic window? Wouldn't call it a "full tableau." Same for the little table with a book on it at WDW. The Caretaker has used up a lot of bandwidth as a key piece of evidence that the events you're seeing have never happened before. We've talked more than once about whether his dog is the same as the dog by the Mummy. The entire graveyard is hardly a tableau. There are many tableaux in the graveyard. For example, I'd call the band a distinct tableau; likewise the singing busts. The teaparty around the hearse is not a bad guess, but I've done an entire post on the Death Coach, with that one discussed in the process. The toasting couple is a very good choice, and you can make a case that it wins the prize. That was one of the two I meant when I said there are two good possibilities, except someone could argue that it's part of the full teaparty tableau, in which case it loses to the one I have in mind. And yes, we've discussed the window scene in the portrait hall, although not a great deal.

    This is amazing. There's nothing tricky about it. It's an unambiguous, full, distinct tableau by anyone's definition, you see it every time you ride, you've seen countless pictures of it, it's mentioned in passing in other discussions, and yet the scene itself has never actually been discussed. I mean, it's never been the subject of a discussion, here or anywhere else, as far as I know, with the exception of a brief look at a special effect that was originally planned for it but not used. There have also been a few new photos of it posted when they came to light; just, "hey, here's a new photo of _____," and nothing more.

    Is it the Hitch-Hiking Ghosts? I don't think we've covered them in detail, yet.
