    WDW Radio Show # 250 - November 27, 2011 - Your Walt Disney World Information Station

    The Orange Bird and a new Disney Contest

    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #250 for the week of November 27, 2011.

    In the past 40 years, we've seen some pretty interesting things at Walt Disney World: A waterskiing Goofy, gunfighters shooting it out in Frontierland, singing fruit, a rapping Mickey and much more. But until recently, many people couldn't recall seeing a character walking around in Adventureland with a giant orange head, leaves for arms and a green stem sticking out of his head. Today, of course, we fondly recall (and miss) the Little Orange Bird, and in this week's show, Jim Korkis and I will take a look back in time at the Sunshine Tree Terrace and it's one-time host (and hostess). We'll explore the origins of the Orange Bird, the Sherman Brothers song, why he and Anita Bryant may have flown the coop, and the recent resurgence of our little orange friend. I'll then pose a question for you to share your thoughts on as well.

    It's also been way too long since our last contest, so this week, so listen carefully for your chance to win a Disney prize package in my "Where in the World Have You Heard This?" Contest.

    Iíll have a few announcements, including the date and location of the next Meet of the Month in Walt Disney World, and then play more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show

    Catching up on podcasts and caught this one yesterday... You are the only person I know who remembers the orange swirls. I LOVED those and really miss them! Dare I say it? I liked those better than Dole Whips! I also remember the fruit shaped plastic drink sippers and used to keep all of them. I wish I still had them...

    Great trip down memory lane!
