Welcome, foolish listeners, to an entire Mousetalgia episode devoted to the home of 999 happy haunts, The Haunted Mansion. This week, Jeff answers questions and tells stories about the history of Walt’s storied dark ride in honor of its 50th anniversary on August 9. First, Kristen asks Jeff some Haunted Mansion questions for which she needs answers, then Jeff goes back for the five decades BEFORE the Haunted Mansion’s opening to search for possible influences and cultural moments that may have moved Walt as he conceptualized the Haunted Mansion attraction. Plus – we add our own characters to the Haunted Mansion, and Jeff and Kristen announce upcoming Haunted Mansion-related events.
