Throwback Thursday: Country Bear Christmas Special

Taking it back to 1984 (the year I was born) to those Country Music loving bears, The Country Bears Christmas Special opened on 19/12/1984

Featuring all your favourites, including Wendell, Liver Lips and Big Al, this was one of the first examples of Disney adding an overlay to popular existing attractions.

Instead of the usual songs the Bears perform, at the Christmas Special you would hear the likes of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Deck the Halls and Blue Christmas.

The whole gang celebrate the Holidays.

The show was featured in 3 parks, Disneyland (which stopped the overlay when the attraction closed in 2001) Walt Disney World (closing at the end of the Holiday season in 2005) while Tokyo Disneyland still get their overlay every year.
