‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’ hits Disney+ in 3 days; here’s another official movie clip!

Who did the ghost take to the Halloween dance? Give up? His ghoul-friend!

What’s a vampire’s favorite fruit? Come on, take a guess! Neck-tarines!

Where do ghosts go swimming? Do you know? Lake Erie and the Dead Sea!

(Cue the “wocka, wocka, wockas” from Fozzie the Bear.)

These are just a few of the awesome Halloween jokes from Fozzie, according to a post in 2011 from babytoboomer.com. Can you imagine how fun the Muppets’ all-new spooky special, inspired by the Disney Parks Haunted Mansion attractions, is going to be when it drops on Friday at the Disney+ platform?

Ok, so maybe we won’t base how great we think the special will be on how “great” Fozzie’s jokes are, but we’ve learned enough about Muppets Haunted Mansion to know that the first-ever Muppets Halloween-themed movie is going to be good! We shared a clip from the film with you yesterday, and here’s another little tidbit to hold you over until Friday:

“Dead prawn walking.” How can we not love Yvette Nicole Brown?

She’s featured in this clip, along with Gonzo the Great and Pepe the Prawn. The “brave” Muppets are on their way to the Haunted Mansion, and Brown plays the role of the hearse driver. When they arrive and Gonzo asks about scheduling a time for her to return to pick them up the next morning, she simply says, “That won’t be necessary.”

She drops visitors off, but for some reason, she never picks anyone up from the Haunted Mansion. (Cue the spooky maniacal laughter, the streaks of lightning, and the claps of thunder.)

The new special will be streamable on Disney+ beginning Friday, October 8, and we’re sure we can expect all the silliness and hijinks for which the Muppets are known. The movie marks the Muppets’ first-ever spooky-themed special, and we can’t wait to see whether the fearless Gonzo the Great will stay fearless throughout his night at the Haunted Mansion.

And will he be there for a hearse pick-up the next morning? We’ll know on Friday!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
