These pictures are from a 1964 issue of Look Magazine.  The entire magazine was a preview for the 1964 World's Fair.  Since Walt Disney was contributing four attractions to the fair (Small World, Carousel of Progress, Mr. Lincoln, Ford Magic Skyway) there were a few pages dedicated to him.

Whoa is that the silhouette Walfred Hitchsney?

You always hear about the infamous Walt Disney eyebrow.  Looks like this caveman is getting it.

That's probably the best picture of Walt I've ever seen!

Toy Story 3 and The Shining

I really like how Pixar always hides easter eggs in their films.  Toy Story 3 is full of them but today I am just focusing on the references to The Shining.  If you know anything about Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich it's that he loves The Shining.  So here are the three references in the film that I know of.

Check out the license plate on Sid's garbage truck.

and this screen name.

Both are references to room 237, the room Danny is told never to enter in The Shining.

This next one is a little tougher.

Check out the crazy design on the tissue box.

This is not the first time Pixar has used that carpet design either.  Can you find it in the original Toy Story?

Hanna Barbera Land: Attractions

Back to my 1985 birthday at Hanna Barbera Land.  Check out the Paddle Boats.

That's me in Quick Draw McGraw and the rest of my gang in Snagglepuss.

It looks like Huckleberry Hound might be waaaay back there.

I would love to know what happened to these Carousel characters.

So we have Yogi, Scooby, Dino, and.....Train Car?

I have one more batch of photos from the birthday bash.  Next up characters in the park!
