Scholarly Saturdays: Encyclopaedia Britannica & Fantasyland, Pt. 4

Today’s Scholarly Entry from the Encyclopaedia Britanica is all about Storybook Land and Casey Junior. In shot #1, we can see that Bobby and Susie have safely entered their "realistic" Canal Boat; do they all have teapots?

What a great shot of Casey's expressive face:

Susie is not very happy about being put in a cage:

If you look closely, you can see her desperately clinging to the bars:

So many wonderful things to see along the way:

I can almost hear Casey's "I think I can..."; can't you?

On a different note, anybody out there able to identify what's in this shot that I took yesterday? If not, you'll have to wait until Sunday to find out and see the other photos I took. I’s cruel, but I’m friggin' tired.

See more Encyclopaedia Britannica photos at my regular website.

THAT is the first encouraging site I've seen from Disneyland in a LONG time!

(speaking of the Gullywumper of course!)

BTW, when it re-launches, we should all get drunk aboard and start wackin' passerbys with our barge poles! In honor of Fess!

No way!!! My first thought is that they are were changing an old keel boat into something else but now I'm not sure.

It's a boat. Ha Ha

It's the SS Minnow. Disney realized that Pirates are passé, so they bought the rights to Gilligan's Island and are ready to do a makeover of the Island. Chris M may be sworn to silence, but I am not!
