    I'm working for a former Jungle Cruise skipper! :)

    I just started working as a Teaching Assistant for an after school program at a local school, and I found out that the teacher of the class is a former Jungle Cruise skipper - Larry Kaml. (I asked if it was alright if I mentioned his name on here, and he said it was, "so long as you spell it correctly," which I have ) He said he worked there for 11 years. Anyone on here remember him?

    Also, he used to be involved with a theatre company that produced a play that I reviewed, the lead actor of which worked at the copy store where I get prints of my artwork made. It is a small world after all!

    (I don't know if this might be seen as a more "Loungey" topic, I'm putting it here because it involves DL.)

    That's pretty cool. Do they still know the jokes? Or are they getting stale and crumby? Sorry, just had to reference one of my favorites.

    Was looking through my old PMs and saw the one about this being moved here - I didn't realize that I didn't reply .

    Yes, he mentioned was in More Mouse Tales a lot, mostly in the sections about the Jungle Cruise/Narrations Dept. Drama, and also about the Columbia (for which he co-created the live narration that it had at the time, if I remember correctly). It was surreal to read that again, because I had already read it a long time ago, but now it was like "I know that person!"

    Wow! I looked at the title and thought, "You're working for John Lasseter?"

    Darn.



    Still pretty cool though.

    I agree - darn! I'm an artist and I wish I was working for Lasseter, too!

    I did get to see Lasseter run past and actually spoke to Tony Baxter during my last trip to DL. You can read about it in the trip report here:
