1973 Disney On Parade - Country Bears

From the 1973/74 touring production of "Disney On Parade"

 

"It's country-hillbilly time with an unusual twist...

Bunny, Bubbles, and Beulah combine some unique talents for bears as they sing while performing on the high trapeze. They are joined by that famous musical-country-four Liver Lips, Henry, Big Al, and Wendell."

 

Incidentally, these costumes were my first introduction to the Country Bears, since our family had not yet seen the Disneyland animatronic show. I remember wondering why the three aerialists had "real people hands" instead of paws...
