Freeze Frame! - Haunted Muses


In a very quick bit of theme park to motion picture synergy, an element of the Haunted Mansion is referenced in Disney's 1997 animated feature Hercules.  During the musical number I Won't Say (I'm in Love), the Muses take the forms of various sculptures as they provide background vocals for Meg's performance.  At one point in the song, they are featured as a set of marble busts that bear an uncanny resemblance to a similar and rather famous set piece from the Haunted Mansion's cemetery.

Yes! I remember seeing this at the theater and no one else in my party noticed it. I cracked up!

Brilliant! I am very familiar with this scene, and I have never put two-and-two together on that. I need to share this post with some others!
