As I mentioned last time, I recently purchased some early postcards and postcard sets from Tokyo Disneyland. Today I wanted to share a set of cards with a Country Bear theme – Country Bear Band Snapshots!
The set comes in a folder, and contains 12 different drawings of the Country Bears about different activities. The set is probably vintage 1980’s but I cannot be totally sure. The only numbering I can find on it is 0101-1000-680, but this is only on the folder, not on the cards themselves.
Of the twelve cards, I am showing two here. “Saturday Night Bath” has one of the bears cleaning up while apparently singing or something. I like the raccoon on this card sitting in the tiny bath next to the bear! Overall a great little sketch. No artist credit is given…but I suspect it would not be too hard to find out who this is from someone at the Disney Archive.
The second I am showing here has another bear educating a smaller bear about how to make a bottle whistle. At first, I thought he was teaching the cub about the finer spirits being distilled in the countryside, but that would not have made a lot of sense! The title on the back is “That’s right. You got it!”
I have a few more Tokyo sets that I will break out and share over the next few weeks. I am also slowly getting some of these newly acquired cards up into the database. The pre-opening Tokyo set I spoke of last time is scanned in.
Until next time…
