Lost Disneyland: Critter Country Characters


When Bear Country was renamed Critter Country for the arrival of Splash Mountain in 1989, Disneyland created a line of plush toy critters that were sold in The Briar Patch store (they may have been sold at Crocodile Mercantile, too--I can't remember). Here we see a frog (which I found on Ebay years ago) and a mouse (which I bought in 1989 at the park). There was also a turtle, hedgehog, and another little rodent. At some point, there was a "Critter Country" animated series planned--not sure if these little guys were part of that. The unknown critters were kicked out of the Briar Patch a long time ago.

Sometimes these little critters show up on Ebay.


Here is a gopher/woodchuck, mouse, and a hedgehog.

Fuzzy memories of fuzzy characters!


Whatever it is, it's cute.  But not cute enough to stay in Disneyland.

This little guy always has a bad hair day.



I'd love to know the history of these characters.  They certainly weren't flying off the shelves.  And these were pricey, too!


It's too bad these little mystery characters never took off.  Maybe someone can explain their story.
