Haunt! for Illustration Friday

Actually, we have 999 happy haunts here, but there’s room for a thousand. Any volunteers?

“Hurry back! Hurry back! Be sure to bring your death certificate, if you decide to join us. Make  final  arrangements  now!  We’ve been dying to have you!” Thus moans Little Leota at the very end of the Disneyland Haunted Mansion ride, after you’ve left the “hitchhiking ghosts” and are on the moving walkway. She’s tiny and for some reason some people feel they must throw pennies at her. Poor  little thing. She\’s named after Leota Toombs, an imagineer at Disneyland that acted for Madam Leota (the head in the crystal ball) and Little Leota – Madam Leota’s voice is another actress but Little Leota’s  voice is Leota Toombs.
