    The one, the only, the original, Disneylands' Main Street Electrical Parade... 1977

    Here are some shots I found of the old Main Street parade back in 77. From what I can tell, only 4 of the floats in this are still in use (5 if you include the snail). I don't think my grandfather realized that flash pictures kinda wash out the image when he took these, but I give him credit for trying. Enjoy...



























    My parents always called this character 'Prince John' after the Robin Hood movie. being that he's got a mane though, I think he's more King Richard. Prince John didn't have one.

    It looks like the Lion from Bedknob's and BroomSticks? Could it be? Or is that the first version of Prince John from Robin Hood?

    These other pictures were in with the photos from 1977, but I'm not sure if they are from that year or not...

    The most recent characters on here are Bernard and Bianca from 'The Rescuers' which came out in '77...

    This could be another rare character, although if they were in the park at the same time it would probably be confusing. Interesting neon pics.

    I wonder if those are the "flat" originals that came out in '72. I heard about them on VF, but in '73 They were 3-d
