About two years ago, a couple of Stages and sets, and vaults were ravaged by fire when some newly roofed but not fireproofed material caught fire. Included was the Kongfrontation attraction. Universal replaced the sets and debuted them in June and in July the new Kong attraction. They are selectively replacing lost catalog items and elements on film and tape from movies and TV which were lost. Some things may not be replaced.


Yes! Thank you for jogging my memory Opera Ghost! Now I remember! I have been on the Universal tour ride a couple of times and when I heard about the fire and the Kong attraction being one of the victim's I was rather sad. Now you'd THINK they would fireproof roofs in fact any building for that matter on a studio lot. Hellooo they have or had a Backdraft demo in the tour. ALSO you'd think archived material would have been in a safer storage area. Oh well. The local firemarshall must've had kittens.

The old movies are made of a material that is highly flammable from what I've heard.  They catch fire really easily and they burn fast.   :'(

You are referring to Nitrate, and I don't believe any of that which was lost was actually on Nitrate based stock, but I could be wrong. Most facilities now have moved films on this to vaults and locations designed to house Nitrate, which becomes explosive, when it powders.

I looked up Universal Studios in the Life Photos and saw this image of the Allison House taken in 1963

Cool! And the Munsters house just beyond.

Hmmm... I wonder if I could convert one of my Psycho Mansion kits into the Ghost and Mr. Chicken house?

I'm trying to learn to play "The Haunted Organ" from the Ghost and Mr Chicken. Been working on it on and off for about a year. LOL

Monsters for sale - Thank you for the great picture!  The only problem with it is that Wally or Beaver Cleaver should be mowing that lawn.

What do they use for cobwebs?  It looks like cotton candy.

Very similar. Web spinners use something like rubber cement.

Ok- Minion, that is a wonderful goal! I can't even play " My Wild Irish Rose" on my organ, which I've been trying to play for 12 years! My family would burst into flames if I played the Haunted Organ music!  But all this talk about the music made me buy it off the Vic Mizzy Itunes album. Maybe I can put an mp3 player behind my organ and pretend to play it!

That sounds great, Charpie!

There's just one problem.  I'm not cool.  Ask my kids.  They will verify that for you.  I still don't know what exactly and Ipod is and I don't know what an Itune is either.
