Disneyland Kaiser Aluminum Pig Sketch, 1955

Newer Older

Part of an original pencil layout created in 1955 for a full-color newspaper section presenting some of the " many delights and wonders that are yours to enjoy at Disneyland."

"Children and adults alike will be entertained and "aluminated" by the magic-like performance of this friendly metal.

"KAP, THE KAISER ALUMINUM PIG," will be your friendly host as he entertains you with his amazingly versatile antics. By pushing buttons or pulling handles you can make "KAP" flat as a pancake, light as a feather, round as a pole, strong as an ox, twisted like yarn, colored like a rainbow. He'll show you how he can get sizzling hot, dazzling bright, electrically shocking and will perform in many other ways useful to you."

    Excellent. Love the character, love the copy/concept! And the drawing is wonderful.

    Ah the Kaiser ALuminum Pig. I would love to see an actual photo of him. Interior shots of those Tomorrowland exhibits seem impossible to find.

    I love this!

    These are wonderful Kevin. We'd love to have them posted to Mid-Century Illustrated Originals!

    There are some wonderful *color!* photos on "Gorillas Don't Blog" this week. You can get a peek at KAP in the background....
