 Bear has some wear and sold AS IS
Anyone who knows Disney or who has visited
the famous theme park
knows of this wonderful attraction
I have purchased a very RARE and highly collectible bear
that is a piece of history for avid Disney collectors
to add to their collection
" Walt knew he wanted some sort of show to provide entertainment
to the guests at the resort, and he knew he wanted the show
to feature some sort of bear band.
The project was assigned to imagineer Marc Davis.

Davis, together with Al Bertino came up with many bear groups,
including bear marching bands, bear mariachi bands, and Dixieland bears.
One day Davis was working on drawings of the characters in his office.
 Walt Disney walked in and saw the drawings and laughed
because he loved the characters.
On Walt's way out he turned to Marc Davis and said "Good Bye",
which Walt was known never to say.
A few days later he died on December 15, 1966.
It was the last time Marc saw Walt.
After Walt's death, plans for the show still carried on.
The bears would be featured in the resort's Bear Band Restaurant Show,
and it was decided that they would have a country twang.

On October 1, 1971, The Country Bear Jamboree opened its doors
in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
It received so much good feedback that Imagineers immediately planned
to make a replica of the show to be placed in Disneyland. "
