Low light coupled with a moving walkway (not to mention camera technology at the time) probably contributed to the lack of quality pictures from this post show exhibit. I know the few pictures we have are mighty blurry.

Video clips. Sorry, but in years of looking myself, this is the best I have been able to find. Limited by technology at the time, and simply NOT a lot of still pictures.
Hey, I can't even find the Star Tunnel music WITH the lyrics - NOBODY seems to have it, ANYWHERE!!!

Notice something at the end of the second video, starting at 46 second mark? That's right - the animatronic boy and his dog with the camcorder - ARE STILL THERE TODAY! (Well, before the current refurb, and yes, with their "skins" removed)
Ummm, no. The First video has the RCA song "here's to the future and you" dubbed over it, and is longer, including extra footage at the end from inside Space Mountain.
The second video is much shorter. While it does have the same footage of the speed ramp as you exit Space Mountain as seen in the first video, it does NOT have the RCA song dubbed in, and you can hear the actual animatronic dialogue/audio on the video (though poor quality).
