Here are four photos from a little tourist attraction known as "Fairyland Village". I have NO idea where this park was... a Google search was not much help. There's a Fairyland Village in Australia! I won't be surprised if one of my readers knows exactly where this place was.
These slides were developed at Montgomery Ward's, and they are pretty awesomely crappy. This is how they look after I've tried to restore them, so just try to imagine how they looked beforehand. Here's a very crude Gulliver after he has been captured by the Lilliputians. They brought along a cask, which I'm sure was filled with a non-alcoholic beverage. Yoo-hoo, maybe.
Oh my god, it's a freakin' DRAGON! Run for your lives!! Oh wait, it's not real. But it fooled me for a minute. How embarrassing. He really looks like he was made of papier-maché! To be honest, the childlike quality of these figures is charming to me.
There's the lovely Rapunzel, with her freakishly long golden braids, and her scary witchiepoo godmother is climbing up to deliver a can of whoop-ass. It is clear that Disney totally stole this whole scene for the movie "Tangled".
I hope you've enjoyed your visit to Fairyland Village!
