Mickey and the Haunted Mansion
Mickey and the Haunted Mansion is an older cartoon made when good ol’ Walt was still alive. It stars him, Goofy and Donald who are all private detectives called out to investigate this spooky old mansion. The kicker – they were called by the ghost who lives in the mansion, and who then proceeds to scare the heck out of them.
My favorite part is where he puts two frogs into a pair of shoes tied together. As the frogs jump, the shoes move. Eventually they run into a coat rack with hat on it. Then through a torn curtain, and right by Mickey and Gang.
Either way, I think it’s probally one of my favorite Diseny cartoons. I use to have it on video. Well, not really video, fake video. Fisher Price had a cheesy plastic video “camcorder.” You could buy different “video” to play in it. They’d plug in to one side and you’d turn the crank to make the movie move. They were usually pretty well chopped up. This paticular one was only 45 seconds or so. I remeber also having Dumbo – that was probally a minute and a half at most.
So my real question is thus; All the rides in Diseny Land have themese to them. Was the Cartoon made to promote the Haunted House? And what on Earth made them think that putting Eddie Murphy in the house would be a good idea? Granted I’ve not seen the movie – but based off what I’ve heard, and what little I’ve see – I’m better off that way.
Eddie Murphy is a rant for another day, but I do want to pass on this link Why Diseny Should Turn to Anime
