HM Gus
The Prisoner is one of the three Hitchhiking Ghosts. He is the only of the hitchhikers to make an appearance twice in the ride (as an animatronic figure). Fans often refer to him as "Gus," an unofficial name that has since been adopted in various Disney projects.


The Prisoner is a short, dwarf-like figure. He has a long beard and a ball and chain shackled around his ankle. In the graveyard, he is seen with a metal file, which he possibly used to saw his prison bars away in his escape.

On the RideEdit

The Prisoner first appears in the Graveyard , standing next to the Executioner and the Beheaded Knight . He sings with a deep, gravelly voice provided by Candy Candido, in contrast to the Executioner's high pitched one. For the 2007 "Re-Haunting" of WDW's Mansion , he received new vocals and now sings some lyrics slightly differently, i.e., "When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake, Spooks come out for a screaming wake", as opposed to the normal "Spooks come out for a swinging wake".
