Fantasy Follies Summer 1986

One of the attractions during the summer season at Disneyland in 1986 was the Fantasy Follies at the Carnation Gardens. The show featured some interesting character and costume choices. First up is Roger Rabbit, a new character at the time, performing the Hula Hoop in a grass skirt.

Next up are three of the Country Bears performing. They must have got lost and missed their normal theater.

This picture documents one of the most unusual costume choices I have seen, each Pig has their own house as a hat. Practical Pig looks like perturbed pig in this image.

I'm wondering if that date of 1986 is correct? WFRR wasn't released until June of '88, could they have had the walkaround character two years in advance of the film's release?

I love seeing Roger Rabbit at the Park. I was wondering the same thing about the date of 86 vs. 88.

The 3 little pigs pic reminds me of Beach Blanket Babylon up in San Francisco.

I miss seeing Roger in the parks!

The Three Pigs here are one of the strangest images I've ever seen. K. Martinez just made me laugh with her awesome comment!

Wow, I don't remember ever seeing Roger Rabbit in the Park!

Matt and K. Martinez- you are correct. In a cursory search of the Internet, I only found references to 1986, but the show did last a coupled of years. Thanks.
