There’s nothing better on a lazy Sunday than watching a 36-year-old Disney parade! Can I get a “Hell, yes”?!

Here’s a short and sweet, two-and-a-half-minute clip captured at Walt Disney World in February, 1977. Take in a parade of colorful characters including Donald Duck, Snow White, the cast of Robin Hood and grand master, Mickey Mouse. Be wary of the giant-headed Three Little Pigs though (0:50). Those guys used to give me the creeps at Disneyland in the early 70s. I’d steer clear of them whenever possible. Whatever happened to those frightening porcine pals? At some point in the late-70s or early-80s Disney wisely retired them from the parks.
