“The Phantom Blot” was a humanoid monster possibly (seemingly some sort of blotling). According to one account, he was a fictionalized version of the Phantom Blot, mistakenly taking on some traits of the Blot.
Description[edit | edit source]
According to what the Ghost Host once read in a newspaper, this Phantom Blot was a character in the 2009 in-universe video game Epic Mickey, loosely based on Mickey Mouse's adventures in Wasteland, making this so-called Phantom Blot a version of the Blot.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
This Phantom Blot was one of many deleted concept pieces for what and who the villain of 2010's Epic Mickey might be. Still conceived of as a reboot of the Phantom Blot (retaining the Blot's appearance of a calm, robed humanoid, although infinitely more eldritch in appearance), this version of the Phantom Blot was rejected for being too horrific for Disney material, and eventually retooled into the Blot from the final game.
In “Epic” Proportions, Episode 3 of the unlicensed Haunted Mansion Show, which was created in 2009 prior to the release of the game, the Ghost Host reads of an Epic Mickey video game as existing in-universe, with this version of the Phantom Blot as its villain, whom even the Ghost Host finds worth "worrying about".
