    Pictures of 'Living Character' Meeko

    Disney did a test in 2006? to have Pocahontas at DCA telling stories while interacting with a Living Character of Miko the raccoon who hid in her basket. I was looking on-line of pictures of it, but could find none.

    Any ideas where I could see what Miko looked like?

    Meeko and Pocahontas only had that show for like... 2 weekends at most. Good luck finding pictures. It was actually performed in DCA, at the Ahwanee Camp Circle (where the Spirit of Brother Bear currently performs), if that somehow helps.

    There are videos of it on youtube. I remember seeing a video of this and never saw it in person while at DCA.

    Aww to bad they can't bring that back over there. I don't mine Brother Bear but I would like to see it if they did bring it back.

    This sounds fabulous. Pocahontas as a movie was a huge departure from actual historical fact, but I like her because as an image, she's has a completely different kind of beauty than the other Disney princesses, so I'd like her to have more presence in the parks!

    I remember seeing pictures on the web and I found a thread on Mouseinfo.com that talks about photos and videos, but they are no long there when the site changed hands.

    I was inspired with seeing the Remé at Epcot and was thinking of how nice and simple, yet effective that the little guy was and how they could use the same technique with other characters. How about a meet and greet at the DCA revamped wilderness area with Thumper, FLower, Meko, etc. Or how about Lucefer, Lady and the Tramp, the Chesire Cat, etc? Just having them blink, look around and nod would work well for an animal character.

    Yes! I think that sounds like a great idea! I have always liked the thought of Disney "animals". Where you could actually see them how they look...instead of a big huge version that walks on all fours and doesn't blink...

    Has anyone found any info, pictures, or videos on the Meeko and Pocahontas storytelling thing? I really want to see it! : )
