Bear Country Opening Sign

In 1972, a new land opened in Disneyland. Replacing the Indian Village of yore, a merry band of bears set up home in a theater and presented a down home show. The bears featured designs by Marc Davis and Al Bertino and other Imagineers. The land has been renamed to Critter Country and the bear band has been replaced by an English bear. I still have great memories of Bear Country and the fun to be had in this small land.

I remember that sign. I always liked the CBJ. I was kind of ticked when a group of went back to Critter Country and saw that it was closed. Pooh is no CBJ.

You're on a roll again with the sign documentation images. What a cool and rare one you have here. Thanks, Patrick!

I am thinking that the cave with the snoring bear is behind that pine tree on the far left. Man did they ever ruin this area with Splash Mt. Don't get me wrong....I like Splash Mt., but I don't like where it was placed. And don't even get me started with how I felt about the Country Bears being evicted for Pooh!
