  • Missing Disneyland Characters (Photos)

    For the Disney on Parade arena shows in the early 70's, Bill Justice designed many big head characters that had never been seen in the parks before (or since in some cases). One of these was the March Hare - - This same costume design finally showed up at Disneyland for the Flights of Fantasy parade back in the early 80's - - but he has been MIA ever since.

    The Walrus used to be a regular at Disneyland, but I can't remember the last time I saw him...

    These shots are from the first edition Disney on Parade program.

      That show was excellent... I mean, how often did we get to see stuff like this outside of the parks:

        It's GREAT to be a Viking!


        Were going down, down and a earlier round,
        And sugar, were going down swingin'
        I'll be your number one, with a bullet,
        A loaded god complex,
        Clock it and pull it.

        I'm to quarters and a heart down,
        And I don't wanna forget how your voice sounds,
        These words are all I have so I'll write them,
        So you need them just to get by,
        Dance, Dance, were falling apart to half time,
        Dance, Dance,
        And these are lives you'd love lead to lead,
        Dance,
        This is the way they'd love if they knew how, misery loved me.
        - Fall Out Boy, Dance Dance

          As he stated, the Walrus used to be a regular at DL, but hasn't been seen in a looooong time, and the March Hare was used in the parade, but hasn't been seen ever again.

            the march hare costume at MK was destroyed apparently.

            At least on may 5th we found out they still had the darkwing duck and launchpad costumes No gummibears or talespin apparently :/ And no Scrooge McDuck either.

              What happened on May 5... or do you mean last years 50th press thing? We definitely used to have a Scrooge out here.

                I'm not completely positive, but I think I saw a Scrooge made from the new Donald head design. I could be wrong.

                -EDIT-
                I think this is the new design. It's not exactly a Donald head, but it did get redesigned. Here's another photo, from Disneyland Paris.

                  I'm not quite sure of the technical differences, but I did meet the Walrus at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this past fall at the Magic Kingdom.

                  I tried to edit myself out for you all. This was the only time I saw this character out and he switched off with the Tweedles on the Alice in Wonderland candy trail from Toon Town to Space Mountain.

                    That Walrus sure looks like the old head mold - - but too bad they changed the colors on the outfit!

                      Rumor has it that the Walrus may return to the Alice In Wonderland unit late this year or next year.

                        This was one of the best threads I've skimmed through today. I loved those old pictures!

                          I think I also saw Ludwig Von Drake once. I think he was on the lead float of the old Goofy through History parade.

                              I have a photo of the March Hare in a parade somewhere around here....from about 1989. I'll have to hunt around for it to compare the costumes.
                              A signature should go here.
