Haunted Mansion Wiki

Phineas P. Pock is a character appearing in every version of the Haunted Mansion except for Mystic Manor. He is portrayed by Bob Ebright.



In the New Orleans Square mansion, Phineas' tombstone is seen in the mansion's berm cemetery where it reads, "Here Lies Phineas Pock. Laid to Rest Beneath this Rock". His ghost appears in the graveyard in the form of an animated marble bust as a member of the Mellomen Group, together the spirits sing Grim Grinning Ghosts.

Magic Kingdom

Although his appearance in the ride section of the attraction is virtually identical to that of Disneyland's Mansion, in the Liberty Square Mansion he has a tombstone on a hillside which reads only his name and no epitaph.

Phantom Manor

In Phantom Manor Phineas appears in the Underworld portion of the attraction before Phantom Canyon where he still sings Grim Grinning Ghosts only now with only three of his fellow busts.


He and the rest of the Singing Busts appear in the Graveyard

Other Appearances

Ghost Gallery

In the Ghost Gallery he is given the name Omney Buss (a pun on "omnibus") and was a member of the Yale Glee Club where he became friends with the Ghost Host/Master Gracey and went on to become a vaudeville performer with fellow future-bust Dansen Singg. The singers all died at Gracey Manor when their microphones were electrocuted by a lightning-bolt.
