The two Imagineers are Al Bertino who was the model for Big Al and Marc Davis. Al and Marc are the two Imagineers credited with the story and character development for Bear Country. The storyboard on the top is of the beginning of the show. What is more unusual is the storyboard below. It appears to be some sort of 1890's Nell and Snidely melodrama with a full on saw scene and a dim witted, large hero. Anybody know the film or project that these storyboards are for? (Note: I have left the image at a large size so you can click on it and get a larger picture than normal.)

Quoting from the caption on the photograph: Bear Beginnings- Two "Imagineers" from WED Enterprises inspect final sketches of Disneyland's newest attraction, "Country Bear Jamboree." The concept for this 15-minute country comedy was developed through a series of artists renderings at the Glendale, Calif. planning and design firm.
