Wendell and Gomer Country Bear Jamborees

Two more of the colorful characters who inhabit the Country Bear Jamboree (at least for a little while still in Florida and in Japan) are Wendell and Gomer. Wendell is the hunter of the group while playing the mandolin. Wendell was voiced by Bill Cole. Gomer is the pianist and never gets the chance to speak. He does get to do some pretty good pantomine and is back up to Henry. Once again the detail on the models is rather nice. I believe some of these models are currently on display at the Disneyland 50th Exhibit on Main Street along with some Small World models, Dumbos Circus models and America Sings models.

Ha! Looks like Gomer pre-Tony Baxter added corn!

Souvenir idea: why don't they sell accurate repros of some of these maquettes? Not enough interest on the part of the public, perhaps? I'd sure like 'em....

Is that what Marc was so pissed about?? That Tony added corn stalks to the side of the piano?
And why did Tony add corn to the piano?...and if Marc didn't like it-why did MAPO build it that way?
