Popular culture, I guess.
I just got home from a locally produced play (the Rubicon Theatre in Ventura) that made some rather nostalgic and poignant references to my favorite theme park.
And it got me to wondering about other such Disneyland references.
Like the Tony Curtis movie, 40 Pounds of Trouble, from the early 60's where they lose a little kid running all over the park.
And songs. When I was 12, I remember not liking the song "Little Green Apples" when it said "there's no such thing as Disneyland". Then I figured out what it really meant.
And a song by War, "Summer", with "kids of all ages diggin Disneyland".
I'm sure you guys remember others.
By the way, if you live near the Ventura area, I highly recommend the play, "Spin Cycle" at the Rubicon. It just started tonight.
