‘Wheel of Fortune’ Star Pat Sajak Teases ‘Special Appearance’ in Upcoming Disney Halloween Special

by Megan Molseed

Hey, Muppet fans! No need to look for an excuse to bring out some favorite films such as A Muppet Christmas Carol a few months too early. Because now we can add another holiday film to the Muppet’s movie library as the Disney favorite announced its very first Halloween special. The film, Muppets Haunted Mansion will be airing on Disney+ early next month. This news is so exciting that even, our favorite game show host, Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak, is gearing up for the premiere of the film.

Although, Pat Sajak may have a pretty big reason to be gearing up for this film other than being a fan of the famous Disney Muppets.

The Wheel of Fortune host has found himself a cameo in the upcoming Halloween special. Exciting news for sure. And, even though the premiere of Muppets Haunted Mansion is still about a month away, Pat Sajak couldn’t wait to share the news on Twitter this afternoon.

‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Excited About Cameo

“The Muppets’ first-ever Halloween special, “Muppets Haunted Mansion” will premiere October 8 on Disney+ with lots of fun celebrity cameos,” wrote the Wheel of Fortune host on his Friday afternoon tweet.

The longtime game show host even joked about the importance of his Muppets Haunted Mansion cameo. Noting that the “critics” have already made their call regarding his performance.

“My role as a singing bust has been hailed by critics as, “Small, but not very pivotal,”” mused Pat Sajak.

We highly doubt that, Pat Sajak. Maybe the cameo is a small one, but we certainly believe any cameo by the Wheel of Fortune host will fall within the “pivotal” category!

A Night Of Frights and Scares – Muppet Style!

The upcoming addition to the Muppet library will feature Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the Muppet crew as they visit a legendary Disneyland attraction.

Set on Halloween night, Muppets Haunted Mansion features an evening of Muppet-style scares; as Gonzo is dared to spend the night at Disneyland’s The Haunted Mansion.

The Muppets Haunted Mansion promises something for all the muppet fans; as well as a fun night of Halloween frights and surprises. Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak is just one among many surprise cameo appearances slated for the special.

Will the “Great Gonzo” survive his time in Disneylands The Haunted Mansion? Will he encounter ghosts and other scary surprises along the way? More importantly, what will Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak be singing in the special?!

One thing we do know we can expect from the one-and-only Muppets gang is that the scares will be fittingly family-friendly. And, of course, we can expect plenty of music and songs along with the usual Muppet shenanigans. There is even talk that Kermit and Miss Piggy find the ideal couple’s costume! We just can’t wait to get a look at the newest Muppet performance. Just a few weeks left to go!
