I think that it was the one time thing with him walking out when I was there haven't seen them sents of chourse haven't gone to DL this month so who knows. I just at the right place at the right time you could say. As u can see from my signature he still is around.
The Disneyland Character Costumeing department doesnt throw out costumes... basically when fuzzy characters are being trained, they do a group outing (anywhere from 4-8 characters in the group). during these outings the trainees can pick any non-major character that they can fit.
Capt. Hooks chance meeting will probably be the only time Wendell will be out this year...unless a trainee decides to wear the costume.
