  • A Lame My Favorite Giant 75th Mickey Thread

    #1 The Baseman "Base Mickey" (Lagoon side grouping)

    #2 Lobster Mickey (I forgot who did it!) across-ish from the winery. Be sure and look behind it!

    Worst and most obnoxious:

    Rosey O'donnel's abomination. PU.

    I haven't seen them at DCA yet but my wife and I saw them at WDW in 03. If I remember, the worst were the Janet Jackson and Rosie. We liked Annette's Angel, the Coca-Cola Delivery man and train conductor Mickey. I have to make a trek out there to see them now so I can see how well they have faired! :monkey:

      Most look pretty spiffy! The one with the comic strips pasted all over it was vandalized by some moron who ripped off some panels on the chest, looked like they were cut.

      I like Fess Parkers too and my Wife really liked Annette's as well.

      I don't know...ever since I was one of the FEW who saw 'Teachers Pet' in the theater (!!!) I like Baseman's 'take' on toons. Prior to seeing 'Teachers Pet'...I didn't like his stuff. Go figure.

      Anyway for those who haven't had the chance to see them ALL...it's a worthy exhibit. To see them all be sure and stroll DTD for a couple (ESPN Zone has one for example) of 'em.

        I want to see a Mickey Statue next to the Karl Strauss Beer Truck, with Mickey holding a nice frosty mug of beer...... :monkey:

          Here are all 75.
          I didn't see a Janet Jackson one. But I agree the Rosie one is pretty bad. I liked the Elton John one, teh Koz one, the Tuck Morgan one and the Doris Roberts one. Yeah, the pizza one is kinda creepy, but heck it's pretty cool. Don't really like John Travolta's, Rosie's and the crab one.

                  I think my favorite is Always my Angel, Mickey.

                  But UndercovEAr Mickey is close since Jennifer Garner designed it.

                    Is the Janet Jackson one up at DCA? Out here, they pulled it because of the whole Superbowl thingie.

                        Originally the Janet Jackson one was in Florida, it was in her Rythm Nation outfit but it just looked awful.

                          LOL, that makes sense... Too bad there was no Justin Timberlake Mickey to put next to it.


                          I'm paging through the Mickeys now, and I thought I had seen them all, but there are ones that I know I never saw. Hmm. Anyway, of the ones I did actually see, I liked Ollie Johnston's. I'm such a geek.

                            I think I liked the one that Ming-Na designed. Or the Lennox one. I like the Lennox style figures.

                            I totally agree with the Rosie O'Donnell comment. It was quite awful-looking when I saw it.

                            I haven't been to DCA since the figures have come to this coast, but from one picture I saw, it looks like you can easily touch the statues. Is this correct? I liked how everything was roped off at WDW. I mean, people will always try to go under the rope to snap a picture or whatever, but the thought of them just out in the open with no boundaries is kind of disconcerting.

                              Found it.


                              I like it, actually.

                                I agree with you about the Janet Jackson Mickey GC. It is kinda cute, and harkens her more innocent days.

                                Here is the list of my favorites that have yet to be mentioned (I think):

                                Wyland: "Undersea Mickey"
                                Dave Willardson: "Flying Colors #3"
                                Lri Tyminski: "Funny Pages" (It kinda reminds me of cookies & cream ice cream.)
                                Luis Fernandez: "Circle Vision"
                                Sir Elton John: "Music Royalty"
                                Tom Hanks: "Space Mouse"

                                Of the ones that were already mentioned, I really love Olli's and Dave Koz's. Ming-Na's was cute too. Add Star Jones to the list of ugly statues. Just a tad too much animal print fo rmy taste.
                                Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
                                I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



                                May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

                                NO GOATS!

                                    You know, maybe I'm just mean, but I didn't like a one of them. I felt they were not original at all. I mean how many times can you see baseball mickey?

                                      i havent seen them yet, but i look forward to going sometime next week! are they really spread out around the park? or are they kinda like in a general area of each other?
                                      I find signatures are overrated. Except for this one.

                                        DF89: They begin at the gate (DCA) then congregate at the fountain...then down the promrnade past Griz and Bugs...then toward Golden Dreams and then congregate again at the water edge amphetheater. Plus there are a couple in DTD.
