POTC Journey, December 1982
Back to Disneyland! Today is a vintage December 1982 journey through the New Orleans Square attraction Pirates of the Caribbean. First up is a shot of the not-so-fortunate "wenches" who pale in comparison to the infamous red-headed wench.
And how they looked 40 years later in 2012:
The lusty onlookers across the way, circa 1982:
Still slobbering in this 2007 shot:
This is one of the most controversial pirates. As seen here, he is holding the slip and slipper of a maiden who is hiding in a barrel. In 1997, he was given a turkey leg instead, as some felt his lewd and lascivious nature was offensive.
Today, the turkey leg has been switched out for a map and treasure key, and Jack Sparrow is the one hiding in the barrel.
Very few changes for this trio of pirates who have been locked behind bars, with a pooch as their jailer.
Still hoping to get those keys, 51 years later in 2013.
