Good afternoon!

This day in Disneyland history, September 9th, 2001: "The Country Bear Clubhouse", or "Country Bear Vacation Hoedown" originally know as "The Country Bear Jamboree" closed it's curtains forever.

Located where "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" attraction is now, The Country Bear Clubhouse was actually supposed to be part of the never-realized Disney project in the 1960's- a ski-resort in Mineral King Valley. Now part of Sequoia National Park. After Walts passing in 1966, the ski resort (which ran into environmental concerns) and the "bear show" were shelved.

Marc Davis and Al Bertino created the bear group. The Country Bear Jamboree actually first opened at WDW. It was SO successful that the imagineers immediately planned a Disneyland version. In 1972, the Indian Village was torn down to make way for Bear Country. The attraction was twice the size of the WDW's version featuring two identical theaters.

Below is a Mark Davis painting for The Country Bear Jamboree.

From 1972 to 1986, the attraction was know as The Country Bear Jamboree.  In 1986, it was renamed and re-themed as a "vacation-themed show" called The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown, or otherwise known as The Country Bear Clubhouse.

Here are some of the songs you’d enjoy in "The Country Bear Jamboree" show: (Thanks Yesterland.com)

    -    “The Five Bear Rugs,” performed by Henry, introducing the band
    -    “My Woman Ain’t Pretty, but She Don’t Swear None,” performed by Liver-Lips McGrowl
    -    “Mama, Don’t Whip Little Buford,” performed by Henry and Wendell
    -    “Tears Will Be the Chaser for My Wine,” performed by Trixie
    -   “Pretty Little Devilish Mary,” performed by the Five Bear Rugs
    -    “How Long Will My Baby Be Gone?” performed by Terrence
    -    “All the Guys that Turn Me On Turn Me Down,” performed by the Sun Bonnets—Bunny, Bubbles, and  Beulah
    -    “Heart, We Did All that We Could,” performed by Teddi Barra, descending on a swing from the ceiling
    -    “Blood on the Saddle,” performed by the unbearable Big Al
    -    “The Ballad of Davy Crockett,” performed by Henry, who is joined by Sammy the hat racoon
    -   “Blood on the Saddle,” performed again by Big Al
    -    “Ole Slewfoot” (“He’s big around the middle and he’s broad across the rump”), performed by almost all the other bears, trying to drown out Big Al.
    -   “Come Again,” performed by Henry, Sammy, Max, Buff, and Melvin.

To watch a promotional video for the attraction filmed in 1972:




When the show was changed over to the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown the songs changed too: 
(again, thanks Yesterland.com)

    -    “The Great Outdoors,” performed by Henry and the Five Bear Rugs
    -    “Life’s No Picnic Without You,” performed by Trixie
    -    “On the Road Again,” performed by Wendell
    -    “We Can Make It To the Top,” performed by Liver Lips McGrowl
    -   “California Bears,” performed by the Sun Bonnets, Gomer, Max, Buff, and Melvin
    -    “Two Different Worlds,” performed by Terrence with Dolores the octopus
    -    “Rocky Top,” performed by the Five Bear Rugs
    -    “Nature,” performed by Ernest
    -    “Singin’ In the Rain,” performed by Teddi Barra and Henry
    -    “Ghost Riders In the Sky,” performed by the Five Bear Rugs
    -    “On My Way To Your Heart,” performed by Big Al
    -    “Thank God I’m a Country Bear,” performed by the entire cast

To watch the full show filmed in 2001:




During its run, the Country Bear Jamboree had two spin-offs – a Christmas special and the Vacation Hoedown.

Where the Jamboree played, riders now can spot three heads of Country Bear animals inside the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride that opened in its place in 2003.  Max the deer, Melvin the moose and Buff the buffalo are mounted on the wall past the Woozles. Have you seen them?

Who remembers the Country Bears? Did you have a favorite song they sang? Perhaps a memory from watching the show?

Thanks as aways for reading and watching! I'm doing my very best trying to make time to write these and homeschool at the same time. I'm sure you all know how much I love to make them for MW and I'll continue to whenever I can. Please know that I always read each and everyone of your wonderful comments. I WANT to respond to all of you, sometimes I just don't get the chance though. I hope you understand it's just because I'm super busy attempting to teach the 3rd grade. :) Love you ALL and hope you have a magical Monday! Toodles!

This brings back so many memories of my childhood and how much my dad really enjoyed this show. I always wanted to sit next to my dad during this and POTC. One time my mom declined me a rad rubber knife with a leather sheath with a skull in it from POTC cause she thought I would grow up to be a serial killer. From there we went to see CBJ an after the show on the way out what do I find under one of the seats? That's right! A rad rubber knife with sheath and all! And to my mothers disappointment, I have never murdered anyone. Thanks SMK  - philliprocks  1077.2 #149 8:11AM

This was one of the few attractions that I remember from my childhood at the park. I saw it earlier this year at WDW and its a lot shorter now than before. Anyways, another CM and I were talking about this a few nights ago, trying to explain to another guest what the show used to be. - BaseballMickey_CM  6853.3 #9 2:12PM
huh, I wonder why they made the WDW one shorter. Is it still just as popular? - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 7:40AM
It will always be the Country Bears Jamboree to me! Β Loved Β this, and I miss it, but I also love the Winnie the Pooh ride that has taken its place. I fulfilled a bucket list item in July when I finally spotted the heads in there and was able to point them out to my family. Yay! Β A family favorite was always Blood on the Saddle. Just so funny! Β I also lived the 'my Woman Ain't Pretty But She Dont Swear None.' Β πŸ˜‚ Β It was just a fun show all around. People would clap along and just have a really good time. Thank you for a bright note today, Duchess! Love ya!  😘 - MeridaFan  3510.8 #33 2:15PM
AWE! I could totally picture you all excited and clapping finding the heads! LOL CUTE! Thanks as always for sharing your memories with us! ((hugs)) You're so welcome! ;) - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 7:42AM

I've been walked off Winnie the Pooh in that room.  They wouldn't let me get a picture though.  I think we can probably blame this show for the atrocity that is the chuck e cheese "show."  πŸ‘Ώ - bluefairy  643.3 #277 2:51PM
What?! They wouldn't?! BUMMER! HA! I think you are right about that movie! TERRIBLE! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 7:48AM

The release of the Country Bears movie in 2002, right after the closure of the attraction that it was based on in 2001 was a cruel joke.       As for my favorite character, it was Big Al, by far! Liverlips was great too. - Grindcore  526.3 #357 7:49PM
Good choices! But yes, that movie was dreadful! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:01AM
When I was little my parents always made us go and see this.  I hated it because I thought it took time away from rides. Little did I know I would grow up and miss it. I was fortunate enough to share it with my son at WDW a few years ago when we went but it wasn't the same as sharing the memory with him at THE one I was at when I was his age. I understand Walt's vision and dream of Disneyland never being complete but I also have a soft spot in my heart for some of the older attractions like this, America Sings and Small World....I love the traditions and legacy of the Resort and I often wonder what Walt would think if he strolled down Main St today.  - CM_Tamstirr  552.3 #333 8:07PM
how sweet that you got to enjoy it with your son! I agree with you, I often wonder this myself! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:02AM
We were there for its last day. My Grandpa's name was Al, and he loved to sing, "Blood on the Saddle" - chelebee  304.3 #812 8:17PM
How special for you! Great song too! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:02AM
I get so excited when I see your history posts!! The Country Bear Jamboree was a particular favorite of my family!! We loved "Blood on the Saddle" by Big Al and "Mama don't whip little Bufford" was hilarious too!! At least my kids got to see this at WDW and now they sing the songs With me! Thanks for a wonderful trip down memory lane.Β πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  852.6 #192 9:29PM
You're so kind! I'm overjoyed you like these! Means a lot to me that you let me know! Thank you! Great song choices! How cute that you got to enjoy it with your kids! I hope to get over to WDW someday myself! Thanks again! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:04AM
Love it brings back memories! - brguest85  187.1 #2064 9:36PM
Oh yay! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:04AM
Can't believe this has been closed so long.  - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1150.6 #135 10:08PM
Right?! Doesn't seem like it! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:04AM
Great post! We loved Country Bear. It was sad towards the end, we would go in and It would be practically empty. Even though it was air conditioned. My favorites were All the guys that turn me on turn me down. Also Blood on the saddle! As always... Wonderful post! You do a great job!!! - Boundin  592.7 #308 10:15PM
THANKS! Awe, I'm guessing that's why DL dumped it.....shocking though, it seems so many loved it! Great song choices! Thanks AGAIN! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:06AM
I am definitely looking for the heads when we go back in October! How cool!! - mamaestrada79  4.5 #18934 10:41PM
YAY! Hope you find em! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:06AM
✨So many found memory's of childhood with this show! I was beyond happy to find they had a version of it at WDW and I could watch it with my own children. (I didn't know it started there.) thanks again sweet Duchess!😘 - piratelife4me  927.1 #175 10:56PM
Hope to get out to WDW some year as well. lol I'd love to watch it with my kiddos! Thank YOU darlin! Hope you have a wonderful day! - Duchess_SMK  5936.5 #14 8:07AM
So not a fan of this one. Don't miss it at all. - Westcoast  128.3 #2948 1:23AM
Oh my. So sad, just so sad! Maybe because you never saw it with me! LOL  - MrsSchnooks  3043.1 #40 2:32AM
Now that would for sure be a different show altogether. - Westcoast  128.3 #2948 4:53PM

I heard a law was passed this year that permitted dogs to be allowed in any outdoor dining patio area... someone should look into if this applies lol ... - TheRealJackandSally  75.6 #0 7:08PM
My dog was welcome there for the MW striker night meet up on Mar 31! - MelodyMouse  4019.8 #26 1:45PM
Scotchie has dined there with us...but he also had his vest on - BombFrogFormerCM  841.2 #196 4:53PM
http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8572.7 #3 10:42AM
i asked for MW meet up discount on 3/31 and nobody working knew what I was taLking about but they did give me an ap discount - MelodyMouse  4019.8 #26 4:22PM

unForecast for week of Monday, April 13, 2015:

CROWD PREDICTIONSpring Break is winding down as Disney reduces hours this week. The MouseWait Historical Crowd Index shows mid-70s for this week which seems about right. Crowds will be lighter than last week with Friday and Sunday being the busiest days. - Admin Apr 14, 2015 12:04PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  373.0 #559 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6929 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  122.5 #3044 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  221.2 #1632 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  362.0 #581 6:07PM

Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1437.5 #100 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1437.5 #100 1:06PM
