Today's photos were generously provided by GDB reader Kurt Raymond! If his name sounds familiar, you've probably seen his amazing recreations/restorations of the original Fantasyland dark ride murals on Daveland's blog. See his work here, here, and here!
The rest of the photos are from Sea World in San Diego, circa 1971. There's Kurt's mom, looking fashionable in her groovy 1970's outfit! Orange, yellow and white was a popular color combination for a few years.
I have vague memories of a show like this at Sea World - maybe this exact show! Look at that elephant seal, those things are scary. But apparently they'll do anything for a few fish. I'll bet he was the bad guy in this drama. Notice the slide coming down from the upper story of that "barn", I'm assuming that some otters made a quick appearance.
The show was sponsored by RC Cola. Everybody's favorite! Notice the bed that a sleepy sea lion emerged from (hopefully that explains why it's wet), as well as the frontier-style shower. You can almost guess the simple western story just by looking at the set.
Many thanks to Kurt Raymond for the fun photos!
