Hey all, probably bumping up this old thread, but this is driving me crazy. I swear I had an old Mcdonalds cassette that had ronald giving a tour of a haunted house. And Mainly, I remember the hob goblin song. Please tell me I am not crazy and came up with all that in my head. Some of the lyrics to the song were.

"We'll be there when you drop your toast, Butter side down and on the most, Dirty part of the floor, Hob Goblins!" Or something.

I had almost all of the old Cassettes, I think I was missing one of them? Anywho, this song has been in my head all day ever since my little sister came up from the basement with one of my Halloween McNugget guys I got in a happy meal years ago.

This Halloween Free tape was made of excerpts from a couple of full length records called ""Ronald Makes It Magic", and "Scary Sound Effects: Nightmarish Noise For Halloween". Maybe it was on one of those.
Thanks so much, any suggestions helps me further in my search.
If only I could find my old cassettes in the basement. Then MY problem would probably be solved.

I tried searching for Hobgoblins, and only came up with this Niel Innes Page

Hobgoblins (Scroll Halfway Down The Page)

I guess Innes wrote the song. There's a couple of Audio samples of the song, and a YouTube Video.

The only thing I found referring to Ronald McDonald is that in 1995 they had a Hobgoblin Landglider Vehicle.

I had the same cassette tape as a kid. Similar to you I could only remember parts of the tape and not title or artist. But after a lot of searching online I found out the cassette tapes origins. It came out in 1996 as a children's book of the month, author was Neil Innes (from England which makes it hard to locate copies of the tape in America). But it wasn't truly a book, it was an audio only story of a tour of a haunted house. In the tour of the haunted house there were three songs which I was able to find. The entire tour I have not found, if anyone does find it I would love a digital copy of it :) . So if you want to hear the songs I have put the links bellow. Also if you want to see a library that has the tape the link is below as well. (I emailed them for it, they are ignoring me)

I have/had one of those cassettes! Ronald Mcdonald would tell ghost stories and asks children what they want to be for Halloween.
One one side of the cassette would be a song. Called, strangely enough; "What are you going to be for Halloween?"

The song goes a little something like this...

What are you going to be for Halloween? I'm Gonna dress up be gee I can't decide! Should I be something frightful
or something more delightful, to make'em laugh or make them run and hide. x2


...a few of the lyrics I remember.
Wish I had kept it!
.. I can be scary, or pretty, or the silliest thing they’ve ever seen, oh what am I going to be for Halloween!
I could be a washer-dryer doing laundry, or an over decorated giant Christmas
Should I be red riding hood with a basket full of treats, or the silliest red headed penguin that you’ve ever seen, oh what am I going to be for Halloween
