Jeff sez, "On episode 5 of the DoomBuggies Spook Show podcast (MP3), designer Rolly Crump gives a very candid interview in which he talks about his career working on Disneyland's Haunted Mansion with Walt Disney at WED Imagineering, and tells personal stories including the time he spent working with co-tinkerer Yale Gracey designing special effects for the Haunted Mansion, and how he was drummed out of the Haunted Mansion project after Walt died."
In this episode, DoomBuggies talks to WED Imagineer Rolly Crump in an exclusive interview. Crump, who worked directly with Walt Disney in the planning and design of Disneyland, was assigned to the development of the Haunted Mansion, where he worked with Imagineer Yale Gracey on many proposed scenes and special effects. In this interview, we talk to Crump about working with Gracey, his relationship with Walt Disney, and his ideas for the Haunted Mansion. We also speak about the recent Marvel comic that is based on his original Haunted Mansion concepts that came to be known as a "Museum of the Weird." Also - Disneyland brings the Tightrope Girl to life; WDI-designed candles appear at Sundance; Drew Struzan art is shown at Forest Lawn - and more. Thank you for listening to the DoomBuggies Spook Show, a podcast "dead-icated" to fans of Disney's Haunted Mansion attractions, and other spooky things.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
