    Re: 3 Little Pigs

    I remember reading something, I think it was in Mouse Tales, that these older 3 Little Pigs costumes were really dangerous because CMs did not have access to both hands. In this video, it seems like they have one hand holding on to a dowel in the right arm of the suit that allows them to move one plastic hand, with the other hand inside the headpiece (wiggling the nose). From what I can recall from the book, I feel like even earlier costumes didn't give them access to either han. It was dangerous for the CM if guests were too get rowdy with them or if they were to fall, it would be nearly impossible to get up off of the ground.

    From someone who has been in a character suit that does not allow you to use your hands (think a happy-go-lucky yet mischievous primate with a friend in a yellow hat), its quite claustrophobic. I can't imagine if both arms and hands were confined inside the helmet or in the bodysuit. *shudder*

    The newer pigs (as seen in previous parades) seem much more mobile. I wouldn't mind seeing these 3 amigos out and about more often!

    But that wasn't any normal meet and greet!

    The last time I saw them in the park at a normal meet and greet was back in the 70's!

    But it's nice to know that they still have the costumes around.

    Re: 3 Little Pigs

    You can tell it's an older video (beside the fact that they aren't characters that you see anymore).
    •There's no handler in sight (from what I can see in the video)
    •No line is being made by a CM
    •They seem to have a little more liberties w/ the "audience" than most characters do today

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
