    Old Trader Sam

    Anyone know why the old Trader Sam was removed? Why is there just a guy with no mask and a baby elephant now? PC reasons? Just curious...

    Actually, Trader Sam now looks like he did when the Jungle Cruise opened in 1955. :P

    Really? Wow. I would have never known. So is there a reason why he got a mask in the first place, then?

    Maybe the PC reasons you were thinking about in your OP.

    Who knows though... things change! I like him now without the mask though. He looks a little more ominous without it and his slight smile makes him look a more evil... but the mystery of who it was behind the mask was creepy all the same...

    Well, wearing that thing for many decades, it gets kinda hot; I need a break and some fresh air.

    It's not the head, it's the humidity! Well, keep your head up!

    I almost laughed my head off at that one, Trader Sam. By the way, is your brother "Trader Joe?" He's having a similar "two buck one chuck special".
