My favorite attraction in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland is Splash Mountain. It gives one of the longest rides. It has perhaps the most animatronic figures. And… it is one of the most awesome flume rides ever!
So when I can find unique collectibles featuring this ride, I snap them up. The piece I’m featuring today was found in a large flea market in Florida:
This is a great concept as it makes a nice piece even when it is not opened up. But when you open it, the display potential explodes!
Tigger and Winnie the Pooh are riding the flume together and can be removed from the piece. Why these two Disney characters were added to a Splash Mountain collectible is unclear, although they do appear to be having fun!
At least Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear get to wait in ambush, but I think they’ll be surprised when they catch a Tigger and a Pooh Bear instead of Br’er Rabbit!
“Please keep paws and cute noses inside the log at all times.”
It’s pieces like this that make my day as a disneyana collector! If you’d like to see another post about Splash Mountain, you can view my post entitled Br’er Chicken on Splash Mountain. I bet you didn’t know there was a Br’er Chicken, did ya?
