Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.
As I promised on October 1, I’ll be sharing with you a Halloween-worthy tale of thrills, chills and Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. It’s that rarely seen TV classic, 1970’s Disneyland Showtime. A tuneful tour of Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom built around (sort of) a visit to the Haunted Mansion and the efforts of the Osmond Brothers and 1970s Disney superstar Kurt Russell to put on a concert, this Wonderful World of Disney episode has to be seen (or read about) to be believed. (Special thanks to Disney artist/writer/authority and Disneyland Showtime aficionado Kevin Kidney for these priceless images, especially the photo of Showtime starlet E.J. Peaker pertly posing in front of one of Mary Blair's Tomorrowland murals.) Be sure and “tune in” here on Wednesday (Halloween, to be specific) for all the horror.
