  • America Sings/Splash Mtn. Question

    I was reading a post here with pictures from America Sings and I have always wondered what the show was like, It was closed when I first went to DL. There are a lot of animlas etc recycled from America Sings to Splash Mtn. Does anyone know if the little weasel made the transition over to Splash? I've seen the frogs, geese, vultures etc, just curious if he is there somewhere...

    Thanks

    The show went through the decades showcasing popular American music of that time. The only animatronics not recycled were the hosts. The Eagle and the Owl.
    Kungaloosh!

      I'm not sure on this one, it's a good question.

      I don't think that the weasle was a real animatronic (not fully articulated). he just popped up, and I don't even think his mouth moved. If his mouth did move, that was the only part that was really animatronic. he would pop up and back down so he probably does not have a recognizable role in splash.

      That's my thought. hopefully someone will know

        I posted a thread about America Sings along with some pictures of it last week. I also included in there what characters were moved over and the various scenes that were part of the show.
        Growing older is manditory
        Growing up is however, optional

          Yendorb: ?

          The weasel is listed as an animatronic, and his mouth and I believe arms moved. If this isn't an animatronic, then half of the attractions (and half of Pirates) suddenly are finding their animatronics missing. Not to mention the tiki room.

          The weasel is listed twice in the Splash Mountain attraction, in the following place:
          • -Weasel: Laughing Place, popping out around the Birmingham Jail fox
          Note that the weasel appeared six (6) times in the original America Sings show!

              He pops out upside down from the ceiling in the black light section. On your right hand side, look for a goose singing to the roof. The weasel will pop out.

                I should have went back and checked oogie's thread. His arms didn't move.

                My memory of the weasle is only a pop up character like the ghosts in the attic in the HM. I don't consider those animatronic. They are animated, and America Sings used several mechanical animation techniques.

                  I thought the weasel was the worst part of America Sings. Of course I was about 17 when it opened (an age when many things annoyed me) and had a bad attitude about the entire show since it replaced my beloved Carousel of Progress
