    Sorry about the off-topicness, but I wanted to double-check before I tell my friend who's at DL right now. Does the HM still offer death certificates to anyone who asks for them?

    Death Certificates? I thought it was an honorary caretaker card.

    The only one I know of for sure is the kids first ride certificate, which reads "I escaped becoming the 1000th ghost!" with the kid's name. I believe it's signed "Master Gracey," but I can't be sure as I haven't seen one in a while.

    The suspense is killing me... so to speak.

    No, I've just heard it called that, and it seems to fit.

    Interesting post on your blog. More detail than I've ever read before. However, I found one claim puzzling:

    "Caw-caw. At least the caws were well done. They were voiced by "Candy" Candido, the go-to guy for basso profundo in cases where even Thurl Ravenscroft couldn't get low enough. Candy must have had freakin' bridge cables for vocal chords. Anyway, he could also caw with the best of them. He did the raven in Sleeping Beauty and got to do it again ten years later for the Haunted Mansion."

    Huh? The raven is not a deep-voiced character at all (at least not in any of the recording sessions I have). Rather it was someone with a much higher-pitched and irritating voice, with just a hint of an old man in there (sounds just like Dal McKennon's Old Man in the Graveyard scene). Then there were Eleanor Audley's outtakes, and Robie Lester's version on the Lp, none of which was basso profundo. So where did the idea that Candy Candido did the voice for the raven come from?

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

    I'm curious about that information as well, Grinning Ghost. It may indeed be correct, but I think we may have to differentiate what recordings were created.

    - the raven narrative (not used)
    - the raven caw (used currently with the 5 ravens)

    Did Candy do both recordings, or was someone else used for the narrative? I agree with GG, the narrative was done using a relatively high voice. If Candy has that sort of vocal range (including the ability to go lower than Thurl), then I'm impressed!

    The caw used in the attraction is a real bird. Not certain if it's a crow or raven, but a real bird nonetheless.

    I'd been under the impression all the animal sounds in the HM were supplied by human voice artists - and that Candy Candido had done the raven since he supplied it for "Sleeping Beauty" as well. But now you've got me wondering if that is really the case, since it does sound much like a real raven's caw. Wonder if that's the case for the owls' hoots too...
