Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade – Red Edition!

Β© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

IMG01400-DAK-parade-Brer-Bear‘k, I’m back and so is Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade, coming to you directly from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Yesterday, I presented to you the Blue and Yellow Edition of the parade. Today, I am pleased to present the RED Edition, in honor of Ruby Tuesday.

I’m not really sure what the two fluffy creatures in the foreground of this photo are, but they do add to the fun and festivities. The one on the left has some RED on it – well, it’s suspect, appears to actually be fuchsia – and is also sporting a set of horns on his (her?) head! Dunno what that’s all about. A red deer, perhaps?

The thing that I want you to notice in this photo is the dude in the background. One of Disney’s more rarely glimpsed characters outside the confines of Splash Mountain, that is none other than Brer Bear from an old film called Song of the South. See his hat? RED!

Look, here comes a giant monkey! He’s got some bright yet suspect red-that-might-be-fuchsia on his face… perhaps he is embarrassed? Many of these parade characters were invented by the same woman who designed the “costumes” for the Broadway production of Disney’s The Lion King – Julie Taymor. Β  This monkey, or perhaps the camel or crocodile from The Blue and Yellow Edition, are actually “costumes” that are worn and manipulated by the actors, who give them voices. A few of them are on wheels and many of them are walked around by the actors by means of stilts that are attached to the “costume”. They really are rather ingenius!

Goofy sorta looks like he’s wearing a cowboy outfit, but if he’s a cowboy, what’s he doing hauling around a surfboard (with a red stripe)? He’s also hauling a red, old-fashioned radio, and he’s got a red hat on his head.

Sorry, Donald Duck is wearing red, but he is also a little blurry. Hey, have you ever aimed a Blackberry at a moving parade float and hoped for the best? πŸ˜‰ Well, that’s what you’re witnessing here. Every time I see this parade, I try to figure out what Donald needs that red plunger for. Any guesses? Leave them in the comments!

OK, last but definitely not least, here comes the star of the show, the life of the party! His parade vehicle is red and so is the flag upon it. Ladeeees and gentlemen – jammin’ in the jungle, it’s the mouse, the myth, the legend – MICKEY!


Have you ever before seen so many Disney characters wearing red in one place? Probably here, actually! I have a few previous posts dedicated to Disney characters wearing red which are rather popular.

I hope you all enjoyed the parade. Now you can click your heels together three times – or else, just click your mouse on the red shoes in the badge below – and be transported to the internet home of Mary da Teach, where you will find links that will take you to visit other Ruby Tuesday participants.

  1. Okay, I’m lost….in the jungle perhaps…..Is this a Ruby Tuesday post on Monday, or have I finally, completely, irrevocably lost it? Either way, love the pix! I’ve never been to Animal Kingdom but it’s on my list for the next Disney trip!

  2. With each subsequent stop here I’m pulled toward returning to that Magical Kingdom known as Disney! Ah, as soon as the grandkids are old enough. πŸ™‚
    Nice post as always Tink!

  3. Hi Tink…although this is nothing like the Mickey, Donald and Goofy I remember, I am still taken back to my childhood and the Mickey Mouse Show.
    Thanks for the Ruby memories. πŸ™‚

  4. AAAnnnndddd…M I C K E Y M O U S E is wearing ‘o the green today, too.

    Good to see Mr. Bear from Bear Mountain. Thanks for stopping by, Tink πŸ™‚ You always make it a happy day when you do πŸ™‚

  5. Okay, all the Disney characters are great. But you have shown us my absolute favorite Disney guys, Donald Duck and Goofy. And maybe you remember the 1987 movie Stand by Me, where the boys are discussing if Goofy is a dog…This parade is great, and I am speaking as an adult!

  6. Mickey is celebrating St Patrick’s day with his green costume as well? πŸ™‚
    I’m REALLY beginning to wonder….do you actually live IN Disneyland? LOL~

  7. Funny, colorful revisit of the Disney figures from my childhood.
    The ever optimistic Donald Duck is a sure winner.
