    There is a back story to BTMRR and a song written about it.

    It's called "Legend of Thunder Mountain". It's about 10 minutes long, and it tells the story of the Mountain and the town of Tumbleweed. It's a ridiculously complicated and weird backstory, but awesome to listen to. I have it on my iPod.

    There's also a shorter version "The Ballad of Thunder Mountain" that was recorded in the 1990s, but it's only about 3 min. long and misses a lot of the story.

    I found these lyrics online to the second shorter version:

    I always thought he Haunted Mansion would be a better tv show than Movie. You could an Alfred Hitchcock type, standalone episodes focusing on the back stories of the happy haunts.
