Scary Minnie & POTC

If Disneyland wanted to get people to exit the park quickly, this surely would do it: stick a "Scary Minnie” by the gates. Here she is, circa October 1962. Although a little on the creepy side, she is definitely an improvement over the rat-like version from opening day. KK, this one is for you! Also - back over at my POTC blog, I have posted some Disney publicity photos from this lucky gal who has been “immortalized” with all the other pirates in the Entry Queue:

I love the pic of minnie. How many children were tramatized by her?

Notice there are no children in the photo, in fact no people are in it. I believe Minnie has eaten them all and the photographer is next! Great Pirate Blog Dave, how many of you have you cloned to get all this stuff done? THANKS!

I've seen other pictures of Minnie from this version of the costume, and usually thought it was pretty cute...but I have to admit that this kind of freaky. They didn't capture her good side!
