I got to thinking the other day about the windows on Main Street USA, and how so many wonderful Disney legends adore those windows.
Then I got to thinking about the Disney legends that are not on those windows and why they weren't.
Specifically, I was thinking about Bob Gurr and whether he has a window. Then I thought about Rolly Crump, another Disney legend, and then Alice Davis. If any of these Disney legends, in fact, do have windows, I would really appreciate knowing where they are.
All of these people (and more) had a huge impact on Disneyland, many of them right from the beginning.
Here is a list of others compiled from Disneylandtoday.com (please note that this list is from 2000 and may not be accurate):
Carl Barks, Mary Blair, Roger Broggie, Les Clark, Ub Iwerks, Ollie Johnson, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, John Lounsbery, Wolfgang Reitherman, Frank Thomas, Marty Sklar, Sam McKim, James Algar, Robert Sherman, Richard Sherman, Joe Fowler, Bob Moore, Betty Taylor, Fulton Burley, Fred Moore, Thurl Ravenscroft, Adriana Caselotti, Paul Smith, Clarence Nash, Ken O'Connor, Jimmy MacDonald, Donn Tatum.
I'm sure there are others that are not on this list that someone on Micechat may think of, as well.
I'm just curious, how does Disneyland management decide who gets a window on Main Street, and why have some of those that have had such a great impact on Disneyland been passed over?
