Directed by Hamilton S. Luske
"The Mystery of Fairs" written by Mel Leven, song by The Hi-Los
Animation Director: Ward Kimball
Cartoon Story by Bill Berg
Songs by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Hosted by Walt Disney
Synopsis:
Walt Disney shows viewers dinosaurs that will be used at the 1964 New York
World's Fair in their pre-historic ride at the Fair. Then a cartoon history of
World's Fairs with cave men holding World Fairs is shown, often nonsensical and
hilarious (such as a cave man with a big match, which he lights and another
cave man lights his cigar in the flame and then the cigar explodes). Walt then
goes into a film history of World's Fairs which at times is nonsensical and hilarious.
Then the 1939 World's Fair in New York is shown in color. Walt then gets back
to the dinosaurs and then shows cave men that will be used at the Fair which are
audio-animatronic. Next is the Carousel Theatre of Progress, and Walt shows
how audio-animatronics work. It is all recorded on tape, from the wink of an eye
to mouth movements. We then see the performance of the Carousel Theatre, as the
song "There's a Great and Beautiful Tomorrow" is sung. We are then shown a
model of the Tower of the Four Winds, and then we go to the World's Fair itself
and see the tower. The characters of Disneyland gather at the RCA pavilion to
entertain kids and adults. The show winds down with the "It's a Small World" ride
at the Fair and the show ends with fountains and fireworks. [CB]

 

*Note: Blaine Gibson and Roland Crompu were featured in "Disneyland Goes to
The World's Fair". They'd later be in "Disneyland 10th Anniversary."

They were part of the imagineering department. [CB]
