Die-hard Disney fans may be familiar with “The Museum of the Weird,” part of the original idea for Disneyland’s famous “Haunted Mansion” attraction.

Though the concept never came to fruition, elements from the planned walk-through at the end of the attraction did make it into the Haunted Mansion and there was a comic book created about The Museum of the Weird collection.
