In Muppets Haunted Mansion, the Great Gonzo – world-famous daredevil artiste, has done it all, seen it all, and survived it all. But on Halloween night, the fearless Gonzo takes on the greatest challenge of his life by spending one very daring night in the grimmest-of-the-grim places on Earth… The Haunted Mansion!

If I could, I would have the Muppets be a part of every single occasion.
We’re not quite there yet but getting close with Muppets Haunted Mansion which gives Halloween the Fozzie, Midss Piggy, Kermit and Gonzo infusion it has been crying out for!
It looks suitably wonderful giving Gonzo a deserved central role in proceedings with everyone’s favourite cannon-based performer charged with surviving the night in a mansion which looks pretty much set on trying to kill him.
It may sound scary, and frankly if I was in that position, I may not be all that chill about it, but Gonzo will, I’m sure, do just fine because it is the Muppets after all and while things may get a bit spooky, they are also delightfully whimsical and heartfelt too.
Looks like just the tonic for anyone who wants thrills and hugs and hilarity all at once.
Muppets Haunted Mansion premieres on 8 October on Disney+.
