    Evinrude in Main St. Motors

    Does anyone know why Evinrude from The Rescuers is hanging from the ceiling of Main Street Motors?

    It just seems an odd combination.

    Has he always been there? Can't say I have noticed myself. Any photos? Probably a leftover prop..we all know how much DLP likes to recycle!

    Ask an ye shall receive, photo by yours truly.

    He looks like he's been there a while, he's getting a bit tatty.

    Perhaps it's because Evinrude is named after a brand of outboard boat motors?

    ^Yup nice touch, but still strikes me as odd.

    Thanks Semiquaver, guess that might be the only connection to him being there.

    Re: Evinrude in Main St. Motors

    So a relatively obscure Disney animated movie has a tiny presence in the park. Anyone know of any that do not have any presence at all? My guesses would start with Oliver and Company, The Black Cauldron, The Wild and Meet the Robinsons... anyone care to add to the list or disagree with any of my selection?

    Bolt, The Fox and the Hound, ... Ok, lets make this challenge more challenging - only films made before 1980.

    Re: Evinrude in Main St. Motors

    I think that's nearly everything from 1970-1979 then

    Re: Evinrude in Main St. Motors

    Apart from the characters, does Robin Hood have any reference?

    I said apart from the characters! There is no reference that i know of in any architecture or design of the parks themselves.

    Love that Evinrude! Totally an underrated little character from an equally underrated movie.

    Whoops sorry - skimmed that part!

    Hmm, not that I can think of.

    Sword in the Stone gets an obvious mention - and I think Archimedes appears somewhere possibly.
