Disney’s Trick or Treat/Haunted Mansion LP

disney-trickortreat

I had this album as a kid and listened to it frequently (even when it wasn’t Halloween). The first side is an audio version of Disney’s “Trick or Treat” starring Donald Duck and his nephews, the second side is a story of a couple seeking shelter in a haunted house (as a kid I knew nothing about the Haunted Mansion ride, so had no idea that the story was based on the ride). The Haunted Mansion story used to spook me as a kid, so even though it was officially the second side of the album, I always listened to it first and then listened to Trick or Treat to lighten the mood. I did always love the “Grim Grinning Ghosts” song though.

You can listen to the stories here:

…And this is the cartoon that the Trick or Treat one is based on:

  1. Oh, Uncle Donald learned the errors of his ways, when lo’ he pulled asunder the thin veil that separates the natural from the supernatural…’tis time for the samhain of that mallards soul…

  2. For now, he must wander the long dark road between Heaven and Hell. Carrying only a carved out mouse’s head stuffed with an everlasting candle to light his way.

    His feet will never tire, carrying him further into the dark abyss, even as his soul grows old with each step.

  3. Hark, even now does he watch those that frolic in the autumnal foliage, his hot breath rich with the scent of Bit O’ Honeys and Mallow Cups. And when those more innocent than you or I dear reader turn their gaze upon the origin of such sticky sweet vapor, ’tis then that that horrible bill snaps shut upon their throats!
