Marc Davis also designed most of the gags and scenes found in The Haunted Mansion. Above are collections of the various pieces of art he did for the classic attraction, including the four Stretching Portraits seen in the ride’s opening.

In the Mansion’s outdoor graveyard, a tombstone pays tribute to him with the epitaph “Grandpa Marc.”

Happy 100th Birthday to Marc Davis! 

Today would have been Marc Davis’ 100th birthday. 

Marc Davis was one of the original Imagineers for WED Enterprises and is well known for the iconic characters, gags, and scenery he inspired during Disneyland’s and Walt Disney World’s formative years. 

Marc Davis is the man behind most of the memorable tableaux from Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, the environment of the Jungle Cruise, and the narrative and basic show of the Country Bear Jamboree. Marc Davis’ art humanized what ever subject he tackled. His characters were relatable, and often humorous on the most basic level. Marc Davis’ work winds a common thread through the Magic Kingdoms, bringing the expected humor, charm, and wit into the experiences and localities we encounter.  

Many thanks to Marc Davis.. Disney owes him a lot. Happy Birthday, Marc! 

:)
