Papotin's Revue - Summer 1963

Once again you’ve got “Two Wonderful Ways to Enjoy Disneyland”, this time it’s for the Summer of 1963.

I’ve never noticed the guided tours being called a “Happiness Trip” before, I bet they dropped that pretty quick.

Do you think Disneyland is open every day in the summer?

Don’t miss this “Unique Special Attraction – Direct from Paris” its Andre Tahon and “Papotin’s Revue”. This show ran only for a few months in 1963, but still managed over 500 shows! Please “Present an ‘E’ Coupon from your ticket book”…

Here’s the aforementioned “E” ticket from June 1963.

Mr. Tahon himself, he looks better than his drawing above. Check out this blog (link) for tons of information on Andre.

And from Jed’s somewhat dormant but still excellent blog, here are two rare promotional items from these two posts on his blog "Vintage Disneyland Goodies". (link) and (link). Be sure and read the comments on those posts, lots of great information.

Wow, I never knew about the puppet show in the Fantasyland Theater....and it's great to see an actual "E" ticket listing it. That must be a rare piece of DL ephemera!

Now that is just a great piece of Disneyland history. Very cool.

I've always wondered what kind of show this was; can't imagine sitting down to watch a puppet show at Disneyland, with so much else to do!
