    Ten things you MAY have wanted to know about small world...

    ...but was too afraid to ask.

    1. They should lengthen the subjects so that the entire subject line can fit into this post.
    2. All countries of the world are represented except for Lilliput, which was deemed too small even for a small world.
    3. Original show scenes included the vomitoriums Greece but was removed before the Disneyland debut due to all the messes that overflowing kiddie vomit produced.
    4. Most of the kids featured in the attraction share the same mother.
    5. The 2,000 foot, 90 drop into hades was originally planned for the finale of the attraction. However, technology of the 60s would've caused most of the guests to die upon impact. They replaced this with the song.
    6. The chinese characters at the end of the ride says "Monkey Poo on My British Nanny," a bad translation of "Mary Poppins."
    7. The german kids still try to have absolute power over the ride every few years.
    8. The water in the attraction is from the rivers of the world. To preserve authenticity, it has not been filtered nor changed ever. Be aware that urine, bacteria, and viruses are present, so please use a Brita water filter before splashing your hand in the water.
    9. Sadako can be seen coming out of the well in the background of the Japan scene.
    10. Laser guns are available upon request.

    Now, THIS is a thread I approve of!

    13.) The original concept was to grade the sides, spring load the dolls and give you a bag of softballs to throw for points. This was re-imagineered into Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters years later.

    14.) They had to remove some of the Middle East dolls because they would regularly wander to the big finale scene and blow themselves up.

    I want the Laser Guns! Who exactly do I ask to get one!?
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Also, the american dolls had to be legally stopped from snorting coke, smoking marijuana, and having orgies for collar beads, like they do during Spring Break.
