Scary Christmas and a Haunted New Year! is a live-action webcast created by Nick Barbera. The fourth episode of Season 1 of the unlicensed The Haunted Mansion Show, it stars the Ghost Host. Jack Skellington, Sally and Doctor Facilier are mentioned.


It's Christmas and the Ghost Host is very late uploading his new episode of the Haunted Mansion Show. His excuse? He's been working closely with Jack Skellington and Sally to get more of a handle on the concept of Christmas. Jack's even lent him his Christmas "how-to" from way back…


  • The Ghost Host has received 499 emails asking him where the Haunted Mansion Show has gone in the months since it went off the air.


  • The Ghost Host explains his absence as having been busy preparing the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay with Jack Skellington and Sally.
  • He additionally mentions having had an appointment with Doctor Facilier "in the town", suggesting the Haunted Mansion still exists in New Orleans simultaneously with its presence in Disneyland. Several comics, such as The Haunted Mansion (2015), concur.
  • In preparations for the holiday season, Jack Skellington has loaned the Mansion what is explicitly identified as the scroll on which he wrote his "discoveries" about Christmas in The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993).
