Big Headed Characters

For all of the fans of the large headed characters, here are several images of costumed characters in Fantasyland from 1962. The last image of the demented Mad Hatter is my favorite.

That version of the Mad-hatter scares me to death! The one the use currently (with a real head) is much better. Can you imagine how little tike's reacted to that monster head? The pigs are kinda scares too, like something from a Roman Polanski movie! T

Yeah, the rubber heads all gave me the heebie-jeebies. I'm glad that the Mad Hatter is now a face character. It give face character Alice somebody to play off of instead of just monologing (as in "talking to herself" not "soliloquy exposition of evil plot twist".)

It's kind of creepy being able to see the face of the person inside the rubber head on that last photo. I've noticed this on some other photos of other characters. I wonder if it was just as noticeable in person or if it has to do with the camera and/or flash?
