I was thinking about the "loosely based" movie, and it really made me think even harder about the J.C. Specifically, what makes Jungle, Jungle. What makes it the icon that is has become? I'm not looking for a summary, I'm looking for possibly a favorite joke, great memory, special scene or unforgettable moment. This could be anytime from opening to present. While I could include all the J.C.'s I think Disneyland is by far the dearest to many people. So... what makes it what it is, and what is that one thing that you hope makes it in the movie?
For me it is the shots. that is my first memory of Jungle, hearing those shots. I remember them so clearly, I was only 4. When I finally became a Skip that was one of the greatest of traditions. More then anything else I would enjoy a scene with an inside joke for the Skips. Imagine a Skipper firing 2 shots to scare away a hippo, just then the boat engine dies and you hear other Skips fire 3 more shots, then a hippo charges the boat and sends it drifting, 6 more shots, then the classic line "Your ALLLLL clear!"
