Country Bears Jamboree

Post by Kitty »

A few years ago I went to Disney world, and one of my favorite parts, to my surprise, was the animatronic show Country Bears Jamboree. I only got to see the shortened version, as they cut 5 minutes in 2012, but it's so neat to see this full version that they opened with in 1971. Watching this video isn't exactly the same, but definitely worth the watch.

:lol: I'll bet the kids get a kick out of that. No telling how much it cost to assemble that.

It was hilarious. I was surprised at some of the things they were singing about. I was also surprised at how hard I was laughing. In short, I heart Country Bears Jamboree!

:D I remember seeing the previews for the movie of that when it came out, and it looked like it would be very funny.

I wonder if they used the old Hillbilly Bears cartoon as an inspiration. I still laugh myself silly watching Pa mumble. :lol:

Actually, I've never seen that movie. You'd think I would have, being so obsessed with the attraction, but alas, no. I thought it looked silly, but maybe I'll watch it sometime soon just to find out!

It's separate cartoon shorts—don't think they ever made a movie. I looked around on YouTube for a sample, but unfortunately there are no full episodes, just bits and pieces.

Sorry, got confused! The animated one was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon from the 60's.
