The Grand Canyon National Park turned 100 years old this year, and this past week, I finally fulfilled a lifetime ambition to hike all the way down to the Colorado River and stay overnight at Teddy Roosevelt’s old hunting camp, where he hunted lions.
During the hike, I couldn’t help but think about this Disney cartoon, Grand Canyonscope, which is one of my favorites.
For next week’s blog, I’m posting the second half of the October 22, 1934 Snow White Tentative Outline, which mostly deals with soliciting gags from studio employees.
I love to laugh and I’m a very visual person, so I love cartoon gags, and Disney’s old story department gags are top notch in my opinion.
To prepare for next weeks post, I thought we’d go through some of the 1954 Grand Canyonscope gags. As with most things old-Disney, they are visually self evident. Enjoy!
It’s a great cartoon, a great story, and some really funny gags. Of course, if you want to see it and have the opportunity, try to watch the wide-screen CinemaScope version.
A bit of trivia, the Disney Park Ranger’s voice is the same voice actor that did MGM’s Droopy.
