Spaceman circa 1961



There's something very odd about seeing this Disneyland Spaceman standing out in the Southern California sunshine. This May 1961 image shows the attraction posters for the Grand Canyon Diorama and the Submarine Voyage. The closeup makes it appear that he has his eye on a guest and might be about to vaporize them his futuristic belt controls.



I bet they ran over his shoes with a stroller.

I undoubtedly saw that Space Man and Space Betty, but for the life of me I have no recollections of same. Ah well...
