    From DoomBuggies.com



    Of course, the band would really be unimpressive without the fabulous vocal stylings of the "Phantom Five," a collection of singing marble busts. These singing statues (lead by bass vocalist Thurl Ravenscroft [second from left], who is famous for his "Grrrrrrr-REAT!" portrayal of Tony the Tiger) are projected faces on static bust props (in an effect very similar to that of the Madame Leota crystal ball.) Special thanks to Guy Kalicicki for providing the scanned bust cels.

    For the record, each filmstrip was labeled on the leader, and each bust is actually a named character. They are, from left: Ned Nub (Jay Meyer), Uncle Theodore (Thurl Ravrenscroft), Rollo Rumkin (Verne Rowe), Phineas Puck (Bob Ebright), and Cousin Al (Chuck Schroeder.)


    Hope that helps!

    When hinges creek in doorless chambers, and strange and frightnig sounds echo through the halls, whenever candle lights ficker where the air is deathly still, that is the time when Ghosts are present, practicing thier terror with goulish delight

    Welcome, foolish mortls, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host...your Ghost Host. Our tour begins here in this gallery, here where you see some of our guests as they appeared in their corruptable, mortal state. Kindly step all the way in, please, and make room for everyone. There's no turning back now.... Your cadeverous pallor betrays an aura of forboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is this haunted room actually stretching, or is it your imagination, hm? And consider this dismaying observation: This chamber has no windows and no doors. Which offers you this chilling challenge - to find a way out! Of course, there's always my way...



    999th POST!!!! HAPPY HAUNTS MATERIALIZE AND BEGIN TO VOCALIZE!!!!
