The Singing Busts are a group of undead Haunted Mansion inhabitants that sing Grim Grinning Ghosts in the graveyard. From left to right the names of the busts are Rollo Rumkin (Verne Rowe), Uncle Theodore (Thurl Ravencroft), Cousin Algernorn (Chuck Schroeder), Ned Nub (Jay Meyer) and Phineas P. Pock (Bob Ebright).  

Other appearances Edit

2003 Film Edit

The busts appear in the 2003 movie but are reduced to a quartet. In the midst of their song, Jim interrupts them and tries to ask them the location of a mausoleum that leads to a crypt wherein they respond in songs. At the end of the film, they join the Evers family in their vacation. It is unknown why they did not go to heaven after the curse was lifted.

The Dapper Dans provide their voices in this adaption.

Video game

The busts appear in the 2003 game as a quartet again. The leader asks the main character, Zeke, to find the other members of his quarter and wake them. After they are awakened, they sing the song "Brother Zeke", which causes a mausoleum to rise from the ground and the graveyard to light up. The Dapper Dans provide their voices in this adoption once again.
