Halloween Preparations is a live-action webcast created by Nick Barbera. The second episode of Season 1 of The Haunted Mansion Show, it stars the Ghost Host and Igor, it also mentions the Hatbox Ghost. Brother Claude and Grandpa Marc are mentioned as well; the haunted skeleton of one of them appears, but the Host cannot remember whose of the two it is.


This installment of the Ghost Host's show is broadcast directly from the mad science lab where the Host and Igor are working at creating a monster, though they have some difficulty finding the ingredients amongst the general clutter.


  • The Ghost Host, stumbling across a hatbox among the clutter of his lab, remarks that it is a hint as to the topic of the next episode. It would appear that there was a last-minute change of plans, as Episode 3, “Epic” Proportions (2009), did not in fact feature the Hatbox Ghost.
  • The Ghost Host was so disappointed by the "fan submissions" he received in the previous episode, 09/09/09 (2009), that he doesn't ask for any more here, discontinuing this section of the show.
