Now Open: Dinosaurs Eat the Children of the World!



...or at least that's what my sick imagination thinks when I see this flyer.

This features the highlights of Disneyland's 1966 season. I am particularly fond of the art in this piece since it mirrors the attractions' respective posters.

I guess I'm supposed to be disappointed that I missed all of the listed Disneyland After Dark events, but I have to be honest...each one sounds worse than the last. Except for the fireworks. Those are always good.

I assure you that on Fridays and Saturday Nights it was "The Swing'nest place in the Southland" especially when the "Mustangs" played at the Space Bar with guest performers like Billy Preston. It was awesome.

Do you know why these flyers would have been printed in different colors? Our version is red. Was there a date code to the colors - or something along those lines? Have always been curious.

Hi there,
My name's Jay. I'm a big fan of your blog. I thought I'd let you know about my new blog, "The Knott's Berry Farm Museum", over 70 years of Knott's memorabilia. I've added you as a blog link. Feel free to add mine if you'd like. Check back frequently, as I'm adding new photos all the time. Best wishes, Jay(http://knottsberryfarm.blogspot.com)

I have no idea why they would be printed in different colors or if the different versions were released simultaneously or otherwise. Maybe they just ran out of white paper.

OK, outsidetheberm, it is your duty to post scans of your color variation on your blog! Please!

Who is Matt Hochberg and why did he receive a plug on my blog?
