Hello Muppet fans! Did you know that today is the 52nd anniversary of The Haunted Mansion? It’s true! One of the most beloved Disney attractions opened its squeaky doors to Disneyland guests in Anaheim today fifty-two years ago. Celebrate, Weekly entertainment has featured two first-look images of the upcoming Haunted Mansion of the Muppets special. I hope you are prepared to see Kermit in drag because that is what you will get.
Lake. You can’t say I didn’t try to prepare you for this glorious sight. Kermit, while often modest and perhaps a bit edgy, looks positively ravishing in her pink dress, pearl necklace, blonde wig, and leashed snout. Meanwhile, Miss Piggy looks equally amazing in her dazzling Kermit costume. What a pair these two make, even after all these years.
Ah, but let’s not forget how handsome Gonzo the Big and Pepe the Langostino look in their tailored suits. Gonzo is definitely channeling some Hugh Hefner energy here, while Pepe seems to be on his way to an opera. Both Muppets look like born artists who are ready to host the daylights of the next Disney special.
The new special will feature a star-studded cast of Muppets, celebrity cameos, all-new music, and spooky fun for families to enjoy together. Haunted Mansion of the Muppets takes place on Halloween night when Gonzo is challenged to spend a daring night in the darkest place on Earth … The Haunted Mansion.
I can’t help but wonder what the heck and ghosts Gonzo and his Muppet friends will be encountering in this new special. Will they conflict with the bald man, the old woman, the tightrope walker, the jellyfish, or the werewolf? I certainly hope so, but then again, anything can happen at the Haunted Mansion. Will Pepe be forced to marry Constance Hatchaway, the black widow bride? Will Electric Mayhem play with the organist? Will the Singing Busts join the chorus when THE MUPPETS sing their songs? We’ll have to wait until the Disney + special hits to find out. Speaking of what, Haunted Mansion of the Muppets You haven’t received a release date yet, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates.
