I was looking back at an old 1993 Disneyland Tour Guide Book from AAA. I was very happy to relive the fond memories of that trip, but something really got me. I was looking at a photograph advertising Universal Studios, and it had an entire calvalcade of characters...from Charlie Chaplin to Laurel and Hardy to Woody the Wood Pecker and Friends to The Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein's Monster, The Bride of Franky, and Dracula. Whatever happened to these characters? Woody shows up sometimes, but on my trips to Universal, I never see the Classic Monsters or Laurel and Hardy. These characters seem to be down-played. I think that if Universal brought back some of these classics, their parks would open up to a whole new group of visitors. (Anyway, I think that the Classic Universal Monsters deserve their own attraction).
Has anyone spotted these characters?
Do you ever remember seeing these characters at Universal?
Thanks for the input!
