    Re: Missing Disneyland Characters (Photos)

    I think an interesting thread would be,if it has not been done yet, to list or have pics posted of the most random character sighting.

    They had the Toad Weasels in costume when they were adapted for Roger Rabbit, but never Toad, Rat, Mole, Cyril or Badger to my knowledge.

    Toad should definitely be about in Disneyland, since that is where he found greatest fame.

    Thumbs up Re: Missing Disneyland Characters (Photos)

    Whoa!! Talk about a blast from the past!!! I've asked people for years and years if they had ever seen Disney on Parade, to which I always received a quizzical "No?". I thought it was something I made up as a kid. Thanks for the validation!!! Back in the early '70s my folks took us kids to see Disney on Parade in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was our version of visiting WDW, and as a little kid I wouldn't have known the difference because the show was so exciting. I vividly remember 3 acts from the show:

    1. Herbie!! Dad took us to all the Herbie movies and I loved that bug. Now here he was, live and in....uh....person? My favorite part was when the "mechanic" was swallowed up by Herbie (who knew he had a tongue?) and then reemurged from the trunk covered in oil and soot. Loved it.....

    2. Goofy and his jalopy! What's not to love here? Madcap misadventures of Goofy trying to get his tin lizzie to run, a skunk under the hood, rubber running boards, and an explosion at the end of the act!

    3. Mary Poppins entrance. She was flying over our heads!!!! Although I could still see the wires, the Disney magic in my eyes made them disappear and Mary was really flying, parrot head umbrella, carpet bag and all.

    Thanks for the great photos, and even better memories.

    Baloo lives at Disney's Animal Kingdom and is also found on Main Street doing meet-n-greet in WDW's Magic Kingdom each day.. quite often along side King Louie. Kind of sad that Disneyland doesn't get as much variation, so to speak.

    Re: Missing Disneyland Characters (Photos)

    Was it my imagiantion...but I remember a Fox and the hound float in the electrical parade aroun late '81 with a hound walk around character.

    And I remember seeing characters from Oliver and Company which looked absolutley horrible ....which I can see why they were never seen again.

    My question is: With costumes like the gummi bearsand the great mouse detective.,, which probably will not be seen again .....they must be stored somewhere or are they destroyed?

    Does anybody know the answer?

    Most often the costumes are destroyed, no reason to try and store them, fabric fades over time. This is mainly true for the older Disney afternoon costumes (Gummi Bears, Launchpad....ect.) they are gone.. In the case of older, but not popular films or rarely seen characters, costumes are stored or sent for use elsewhere like ice shows or other divisions and kept available for future promotions like video releases or parades. Even though rarely used, some cotumes do still exist, such as stormtroppers, ewoks for star tours. The truth is even though there are many that are nostalgic and long to see long lost characters, many kids do not know Robin Hood, Little John, baloo, or sadly who are the country bears?
    SMEEEEEEEE.......................HELP ME!!!
