Send in the Clowns



Here's a wacky photo of a clown at Disneyland in December, 1955, the year the park opened. He’s promoting the Disneyland Circus. I'll be adding more photos here and on my regular website once I get a little more time. Follow my Daveland updates on Twitter.

The clown is actually Chucko the Clown who appeared on one of the local Los Angeles TV stations (I believe channel 11) showing cartoons. There is a wonderful Disneyland Hotel menu featuring his face as the menu. I also think he was part of the Mickey Mouse Club Circus at Disneyland.

Thanks for the info, Matterhorn - checking out your pics is part of my morning routine!

Ohhhh... that's terrifying and awesome! Thanks for posting!

Davelandweb said...

Hopefully posting these will redeem me from my dreaded nemesis status - have any requests on photos, Tangaroa?

Tangaroa said...

Yeah! Interiors of Space Station X-1 and the theater interiors from 'The World Beneath Us' please...!

Davelandweb said...

Tangaroa - you have stumped me on that one. So far, I have not seen anything from either one of those. Sorry!

Tangaroa said...

That's OK - it was an impossible request. No one has those (OK - WDI photo library has one interior of X-1, it's in 'The Nickel Tour').
