Thank you for these pics! I loved Carousel of Progress AND America Sings both. I'm glad that we can see most of the America Sings figures today in Splash Mt., but I miss Eagle Sam, his owl sidekick and the rotating theater!

Is it just me, or is Sam really checking out that lady pig?

....he's totally "head over tallons" for the busty pig performer.!! This character was voiced by Betty Taylor -the original Slue Foot Sue of the Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland. The Gay Nineties act was inspired by famed Delmonico's of New York. Delmonico's was also the inspiration for the PLAZZA INN redo in 1965 and the inspiration for Harmonia Gardens sets in Hello Dolly--designed by famed Imagineer, John De Cuir!. They were famous for their "Delmonico Steak" and even more so...."Delmonico Grand Roast" (PORK ROAST!!) ....I always wondered if Marc Davis or Al Bertino chose a pig to portray this character as a nod to this famous Victorian establishment!

I wonder if we'll ever get a "REAL" attraction in that building?

Looking forward to music-land!

I think that innoventions needs to close and the carousel theater should be changed back to the way that it was before innoventions was built and that is back to the original theater for audio animatronic shows to be presented and they should bring back America Sings temporarily so guests that never got a chance to see America Sings can get a chance to experience the show like I have when I was a kid growing up and then come out with a new ideas.
