This morning, while listening to my Epcot morning playlist I opened the book up to three wonderful attraction posters for the Country Bear Jamboree, a favorite attraction of mine.
Country Bear Jamboree, Walt Disney World, Jim Michaelson, Marc Davis, and Eddie Martinez, 1978
Contry Bear jingle Bell Jamboree, Tokyo Disneyland, Larry Nikolai and Michael Warzocha, 1991
Country Bear Vacation Jamboree, Tokyo Disneyland, Larry Nikolai and Will Eyerman, 1994
Clearly the standard of great design set by the original Marc Davis poster can never be matched, especially considering that he is responsible for the actual design of the bears, but there is something wonderful about the overlay posters as well. I especially appreciate the painterly quality of the Christmas special poster, as it mimics the original just enough. Plus, I think the pinecones are a nice touch.
