My grandfather used to clean and fix the costumes at Disney World. I wonder if he worked on any of those.

Pretty sure those are 50's era Disneyland costumes. Disneyworld didn't open until '71, and I'm pretty sure they'd figured out how to make them less terrifying by then.

No wonder the standard response to those things is the shin kick.

As a former Disneyland cast member... they love showing these things in our "classes". Freaked me the fark out most of the time. Then again, it is a cult-like place to work.

What's with them cutting chunks out of Mickey's mouth and nose? Are those supposed to be teeth?

You're probably right.

Did they also have a Wicker Man tower, where they sacrifice a child every year to fulfill their offerings to the exploitation Gods of capitalism?

My dad and his brothers having been going to Disneyland since it opened. As a kid, he was kicked out of the park twice. Once after falling off the raft to "Tom Sawyer's Island". Another was for jumping of a ride and kicking things over.

A while back, the brothers pooled their memorabilia and put together a book full of all the original maps, guides, ads, tickets and everything else they'd kept over the years. It's a nice piece of memorabilia.

No idea. And I don't think anyone's explanation will satisfy me on that one.

Also I liked how they used little air holes or whatever in the dwarves' stocking caps. Any cast member will tell you now, though, that that's no longer the case. Disney employs many midgets. Adds a lot more to the show instead of having six foot tall dwarves.

That's a lot more than "slightly" better. That mostly looks like the modern costumes. The eyes are a little off, but that one's not going to cause me to lose any sleep.

Speaking of modern, Mickey can talk now. That is seriously cool.

That donald duck costume has some mileage. I see 'the shining' ref has already been made, but I wonder what stories it holds.

There's a chance he might've known my grandaunt who sewed some of the original costumes together.

I feel the same way. Then again, I'm the same about clowns. It's a person. In a costume. At a Disney park. Why is this scary?

I;m not entirely sure what this says about me, but none of those pics evoke any sort of creepy or frightening response out of me. I just see them as a sign of the times
