Walt Disney World And The Christmas Moose
Melvin the Moose loves Christmas at Walt Disney World in Florida. It is the one time of year that he is not just a disembodied head.
In the Country Bear Jamboree, Melvin is an animatronic Moose head mounted on the wall. For Miss Minnie's Country Christmas, Melvin gets his Christmas wish granted: he gets a body!
Fans of Disney's One Saturday Morning on ABC may remember a very similar looking female character (without antlers) named Miss Moose. She and Melvin should get together.
Vat vill ve get Moose and Squirrel---I mean Moose and Mouse---for Christmas? Starring roles in a live show at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom during the holidays.
This show played at the Diamond Horseshoe in Frontierland in the late 1990s, not far from The Country Bear Jamboree. Melvin previously headlined the Melvin the Moose Breakfast Show (as a head on the wall) at Pioneer Hall in Fort Wilderness (Walt Disney World's camping resort) in the late 1980s (the show later became "Chip and Dale's Country Morning Jamboree).
Walt Disney World is also famous for having a team of reindeer at Christmas, too.
These goofy characters are a holiday favorite. At Disneyland in California, the reindeer got a makeover years ago, and they don't look as silly (they look more like Bambi now).
