Disneyland ZOO CREW

Disneyland's Character Dept.
was called
"The Zoo Crew"

This article is from
The Wonderful World of Disney Magazine 1969

This patch was worn on the tee shirts
by the Zoo Crew till the early 80s
Then Wardrobe just printed the image
on a white Tee shirt...
But so many shirts were going missing,
they started dying the shirts Pink and Orange
thinking this would detour people from stealing them...

I had my blue and white striped Zoo Crew shirt for ages. It was a short sleeve, crew neck (Obviously) and horizontal striped t-shirt. I am wondering now what the heck I did with that thing? Time for a search here soon.

I just spent 20 minutes staring at these photos! There you are, and there's Yvette, and Ted Teaford, and Janelle, and Robert Ponce and Jeff Duke and Bill Wiley and everybody. So fun and so young.

Thanks for the memories.

WOW...what a blast from the past!!! Where is Robert Ponce in the 1985 picture. I wasn't a character any more then, I was doing shows in the park, but I'm in the 1980 photo. It was great to see my dear friend Dave Bullock in those pictures. (Dave Passed in 2007) I have such incredible memories of the Zoo Crew...had we all known then how special those times were. AWESOME!!!
