I Dream of Jeannie at Disneyland
When it comes to parades, Frontierland is not the normal place I think of to watch them, and it’s probably the last place I’d expect to see an “I Dream of Jeannie” lookalike. Showing a belly-button was huge problem for NBC back in the 1960’s; apparently, not a problem for Disneyland’s Frontierland! Censorship be damned, bring on the harem girls!
Following closely behind, it’s the attack of the 50' floats! Run for the hills, kids!
Slightly less creepy are the Toy Soldiers, making me think this batch must be from around Christmas time.
You can call this shot “Ship of Fools.” If only they’d been patient enough to wait for the next Mark Twain journey...
They could have been serenaded by the Disneyland Band!
See—patience really IS a virtue!
