    Argh.. People still haven't answered my question. Is he still doing this, or has it been fixed? Does anyone know? Please? Somebody? Anybody? (Yes, that's a Lion King reference.)

    Re: Broken Animatronic at Pirates of the Caribbean at WDW

    Thank you so much for posting that Lincoln video. That has to be the funniest thing I've seen in a LONG! time. Ahh! I wish i was there!! I wouldnt have been able to stop laughing. It's terrible, and it's bad show if something like that happens, but there's so many Great things that could go wrong!

    Disney AAs only use pneumatic cylinders for digital functions; motions that are either in one position or another. In fact, all of the figures in that scene, dog included, employ hydraulic power for the majority of their functions.

    If what you claimed was true, you'd see choppy, unrealistic movements one would expect from a Chuck E Cheese or Showbiz Pizza Place figure. As these entirely pneumatic figures employ flow restrictors and rely on the physical load on the cylinders to slow the transition from off to on and vice-versa. This is an unreliable technique because the balance between these two factors required to reproduce the "performance" correctly is entirely dependent on the available PSI. Which can vary greatly depending on how many figures/functions need to be moving at any particular time.

    Based on the uniform nature of the malfunction, I would doubt that it was air bubbles in the hydraulic lines for this particular cylinder or cylinders. This problem would be similarly "violent." But much more random in its apparent pattern. Rather it seems like the controller card(s) (each function has one) was experiencing electric noise or some manner of crosstalk at the card's output lines.
    No, I'm afraid your wrong. While Disney does use hydraulic power for most of their AA figures, some are pneumatic. There are no hydraulic lines running to any of the figures in that scene. All of their functions are pneumatically powered.

    FYI all the figures in the Jungle Cruise are pneumatic as well.

    While I still disagree with you, I don't think this thread is the place to continue the debate.

    If you're interested in the discussion, send me a PM. I'd love to hear what you're basing these statements on.

    That is both creepy and funny at the same time.

    The final animatronic on the Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland does that occasionally. Or at least he did. I don't know if they've replaced him yet.

    I've seen Mr. Potato Head in the TSMM queue do the trick of pulling out his ear, but instead of placing it back.... he dropped it. We all laughed. :x

    That one made me laugh. I like that one.

    ---

    As I said on Facebook - I kept looking at the "animatronic problems at WDW" thread the most last week. That's something else (creepy). Also that video of President Lincoln falling down. I would had been like OMG!, if I saw that at the Hall of Presidents.

    Now, I'm wishing there was a video for that Mr. Potato Head too.
