Hatbox Ghost and Baby Boo Return for 2017 TV Idents

Much like Disney’s Halloween idents last year, it looks like our favorite sever-headed spook (Hatbox Ghost) and his pint-sized poltergeist (Baby Boo) companion will be returning this year for a series of (very) short on-air promos starring characters from Disney’s XD lineup. While I love that these even exist, it’d be great to see Disney do a 60 or 30 min TV special with all or even just some of these characters. Could you imagine a full-length “Ducktales” x “Haunted Mansion” Halloween special like this?

Created through the collaborative efforts of Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney XD and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, this year’s list of crossover characters include “DuckTales,” “Big Hero 6 The Series” and “Star vs. The Forces of Evil”—each starring in their own unique story featuring iconic music and sound effects from the Haunted Mansion theme park attraction. Eagle-eyed fans will also be able to pick out a smorgasbord of Haunted Mansion easter eggs in each promo including guest appearances by the Hitchhiking Ghosts, tombstone tributes, the Phantom Five singing busts and more!
