“Beware of hitchhiking ghosts,” warns the unseen narrator of Walt Disney’s famous theme park attraction, the Haunted Mansion. Innocent spectators might recognize the three haunts adorning this tiki totem as Professor Phineas Queeg, Ezra and Gus Gracey (appearing in order from top to bottom). Known for their illicit behaviors, these ghastly ghouls are sure to add a punch to any cocktail. This 1st Edition Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar version of the Hitchhiking Ghosts mug features a black glaze and is the most sought after edition of this mug. Beware if you secure the Hitchhiking Ghosts for your collection… they say “a ghost will follow you home.”

Special Notes: This mug was manufactured in at least two batches, with the first batch of mugs being heavier, more matte in appearance and perceived as more valuable.

Only 200 mugs were released per night and only one mug per person was available for purchase.
