Unused Concept Art from the Haunted Mansion Animated: Graveyard Ghosts and Witches


The reason I wanted to animate this unused concept art by Marc Davis was because it features witches, and you won't find witches anywhere in the Haunted Mansion.

Marc Davis drew a couple of early concept sketches with witches in them - before it was decided to strictly stick to the ghosts. Also the ghosts in this sketch look nothing like the ghosts in the Haunted Mansion either.

Although it's interesting that the Caretaker and his dog look virtually the same as they do in the final attraction.

OK here's the animation made to move as if it actually was a scene in the Haunted Mansion...

There's not much more to say really. I originally wanted to use a little of the theme music to Disney's Wonderful World of Color for when the sketch turns from B&W to color, but it didn't work with the other audio.

As a fan of Marc Davis, it sure if fun to see his artwork come to life in your animations!
