Silly Buffalo



Those Silly Reindeer at Disneyland appear to have a not-too-distant cousin. This comical critter is yet another creation of Disney artist Bill Justice,  and appeared in the Golden Horseshoe Revue episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color in 1962.

On the show, the "Silly Buffalo" demonstrated the Buffalo Roundup, a four-legged eccentric square dance, with faux-Indian princess Annette!









And if you think you can stand it, here's the clip, courtesy of YouTube...

Somehow I'd missed the Silly Buffalo/Reindeer connection until now.

See? Your blog is more than just fun an interesting -- it's EDUCATIONAL!

Thanks for this past year of great posts.

Merry Christmas!

You bet it is, FZ. This has to be one of my all-time favorite Disneyland shows. I meant can you stand all this wonderfulness packed into one post? :-)
