The Country Bear Jamboree[edit]

The Country Bear Jamboree is an attraction located in Frontierland.

History[edit]

WED Engineers programming Henry.

Although the Country Bear Jamboree opened with the park on October 1, 1971, the plans for the attraction date back to Walt Disney himself. In 1966, Walt decided that he would need some sort of attraction for his planned Disney’s Mineral King Ski Resort. According to Imagineer Wathel Rogers:


To create this new show, Walt tasked Imagineer Marc Davis with creating a revue based on Audio Animatronic bears. Davis and fellow Imagineer Al Bertino came up with many ideas including marching band bears, mariachi bears, tuba bears, and Dixieland bears [1] [2]. According to Imagineering legend, Walt Disney was said to have like Marc Davis' drawings of the bears so much that they actually made him laugh, thus the attraction would eventually be known as Walt’s last laugh after his passing [3]. The Country Bears would be one of the last attractions that Walt had a direct involvement with.

After Walt Disney’s death on December 15, 1966, plans for the bear show carried on. During its development, Disney decided that the bears would perform in the Bear Band Restaurant Show [1]. Furthermore, Disney decided that the bears would sing with a “country twang”, and Imagineer X Atencio and musical director George Bruns were brought in to write songs for the attraction [4]. Although the development of the show continued to go well, Disney’s Mineral Kingdom Resort seemed to be in jeopardy. When it became clear that the resort would not be built in the foreseeable future, Disney decided to move the attraction to the soon to be opened Walt Disney World [1]. The show opened as the Country Bear Jamboree with the rest of Walt Disney World on October 1, 1971 [5].

When the Country Bear Jamboree opened in the Magic Kingdom, it proved to be so popular that a copy of the attraction was built for Disneyland [1]. Disney World’s Country Bear Jamboree remained unchanged until 1984 when the attraction was given a new show during the holiday season called the “Country Bear Christmas Special”. The show would return annually around Christmastime until 2005 [6]. In 1986, due to the Country Bear’s popularity, Disney decided to create a new show for the attraction, The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown. The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown featured the bears in their vacation outfits, singing new songs such as “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “On the Road Again” [7]. Due to attendance struggles however, the new show only lasted for six years [8].

On August 21, 2012, the Country Bear Jamboree was closed for a two moth refurbishment. When the attraction reopened on October 17, the show was noticeably shorter and the bears had all received new “fur” and costumes. The songs "Pretty Little Devilish Mary" and "Fractured Folk Song" were removed during the refurbishment, and much of the attractions dialogue was cut [9]. In total the current version of the Country Bear Jamboree is about 1/3 shorter than the original [10].

Queue[edit]

The Country Bear Jamboree takes place inside Grizzly Hall. While waiting in the building's front room, guests can see caricatures of the bears including: Henry, Wendell, Trixie, and the Five Bear Rugs. Guests can also find a souvenir penny machine which will make Frontierland themed pennies for 51 cents.

Show Plot[edit]

Mevin, Buck and Max in the Country Bear Jamboree.

The Country Bear Jamboree is a "hoedown" style show that features almost constant singing. The show takes place on five stages: a far right, a center right, a center, a center left and a far left. The dialogue between three mounted animal heads on the wall: Buff (a buffalo), Melvin (a moose) and Max (a deer) begins the show.

Buff: Hey Henry, what's holding ya up? Let's get on with the show! We can't hang around here all day.


Buck: Now Buff, be patient. It takes a little doing to set these things up.


Melvin: Yea, we ain't going anywhere anyhow. We're kind of hung up here!

Pianjo[edit]

In the first song the attraction, Henry welcomes guests to the Country Bear Jamboree. He then introduces Gomer (on the center stage) who plays piano while Henry sings. Henry wears a grey top hat, starched shirt front, and a string tie. Gomer wears a white collar and yellow tie and always has a honeycomb on his piano.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Henry, the master of ceremonies at the Country Bear Jamboree.

(AUTHORS NOTE: Some of the lyrics in this song were removed during the 2012 refurbishment of the attraction. The lyrics that are no longer in the show will appear with a line through them.)

Henry: Give me a little intro there Gomer.

(Gomer begins to play "Pianjo"- an instrumental song.)

Henry: Howdy folks. Welcome to the one and only original Country Bear Jamboree, featuring a bit of Americana, our musical heritage of the past. But enough of this chit chat, yick yack, and flim flam. Just refrain from hibernating, and we'll all enjoy the show...because we got a lot to give.

(Gomer plays a piano solo)

Melvin:Hey! He's a regular Liberace.

Buck: And he plays, good too.

Bear Band Serenade[edit]

Pianjo leads directly into the Bear Band Serenade. Henry introduces the Five Bear Rugs who then perform on the center stage. The Five Bear Rugs consist of:

  • Zeke- The lead singer of the bears. He is a grey bear with glasses who wears a tan top hat. Zeke plays the banjo and dishpan.
  • Zeb- A brown bear with a light brown stomach. Zeb wears a bandanna around his neck and miner's hat. He plays the fiddle.
  • Ted-A tall, brown, skinny bear who plays the corn jug and the washboard.
  • Fred-The largest of the bears. Fred is a brown bear and wears blue jeans with suspenders and a striped red and white tie. He plays the mouth harp.
  • Tennessee-A brown bear who plays the One-String Thang, which sounds just like a guitar (but only has one string). Tennessee wears a red bandanna around his neck and a red hat.
  • Baby Oscar- The smallest of the bears, Baby Oscar never plays an instrument nor does he speak. He is never without his teddy bear, which he squeezes to make a squeaking noise.

On the Bear Band Serenade, Henry sings and the Five Bear Rugs play their respective instruments (prior to the 2012 refurbishment Gomer would accompany the band on piano). When Henry introduces an individual bear, a spotlight showcases them.

Song Lyrics[edit]

(AUTHORS NOTE: Some of the lyrics in this song were removed during the 2012 refurbishment of the attraction. The lyrics that are no longer in the show will appear with a line through them.)

(Henry Introducing the Band):

The Five Bear Rugs.

And right now, I give you a sordid assortment of executioners of music and song. The Five Bear Rugs! Hit it boys.

Henry (now singing):

The Bear Band bears will play now

In the good ol' key of G.
Zeke and Zeb and Ted and Fred
And a bear named Tennessee.

Zeke's a-twangin' on the banjo
And a-tappin' with his feet.
While bangin' on a dishpan
With a real ol' country beat.

Zeb's a-sawin' on the fiddle
With a crooked hickory bow.
When the spirit moves that bruin,
He can make that fiddle go.

Brother Ted is on the corn jug.

Now, I mean that bear can blow.
He also plays the washboard
With a handle of a hoe.

And big Fred's playin' mouth harp.
He plays it kinda sad.
He never took a lesson,
He just picked it up from dad.

And li'l ol' Tennessee Bear
Is a-featured on the thang.
Sounds just like a guitar,
But it's only got one string.

So clap your hands and
Stomp your feet and
Try to keep right with 'em.
One sure thing the Bear Band's got
Is real ol' country rhythm.

Yeah, clap your hands and

Stomp your feet and
Try to keep right with 'em.
One sure thing the Bear Band's got
Is real ol' country rhythm.


Ah ha!

If You Can't Bite, Don't Growl[edit]

Following the Bear Band Serenade, the far left curtain opens to reveal Ernest. Ernest is a brown bear who plays the fiddle. He wears a derby and a red polka-dot bow tie around his neck, and is recognizable by his high eye brows. Earnest performs “If You Can't Bite, Don't Growl”.

Ernest performing If You Can't Bite, Don't Growl

Song Lyrics[edit]

Ernest:

One night I left the wife at home,

And went out with the boys.
I was acting like a Don Juan,
And making a lot of noise.

(You old lover boy!)

A go-go girl called my hand,

I said, "I can't. I'm a married man."
She said "If you ain't gonna steal,
You better not prowl."
(He's a born loser.)
Don't do-si-do with a go-go.
If you can't bite, don't growl.
If you can't bite, don't growl.

My Woman Ain't Pretty (But She Don't Swear None)[edit]

After Earnest performs, Henry introduces Liver Lips McGrowl who is on the far right stage. Liver Lips is a large brown bear with messy long hair who wears brown overalls and a red and white bandanna around his neck. He gets his name from his large lips, and plays the guitar. Liver Lips sings unaccompanied.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Liver Lips:

Liver Lips McGrowl

I got a woman, she's got me.
Whatever we do, we both agree.
She ain't pretty, but I ain't too.
The things we like are the things we do.

My woman ain't pretty, but she don't swear none.
She's kinda heavy, don't weigh a ton.
She's my woman, through and through.
I love her only 'cause my heart is true.

Mamma, Don't Whip Little Buford[edit]

When Liver Lips is finished with his song, Wendell and Henry come on stage to sing the song “Mamma, Don’t Whip Little Buford.” Wendell is a golden brown bear who plays the mandolin. He wears a blue bandanna around his neck and a dark hat. He is recognizable by his overbite and buck teeth.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Henry and Wendell:

Mama don't whip little Buford.

Mama don't pound on his head.
Mama don't whip little Buford.
I think you should shoot him instead.

Henry:

Bang!

Tears Will Be The Chaser For My Wine[edit]

Trixie performing Tears Will Be the Chasher For My Wine.

After "Mamma, Don't Whip Little Buford", Wendell leaves the stage. Henry then proceeds to introduce Trixie, a very large brown bear who wears a bow in her hair and a blue tutu on her waist. Trixie plays no instrument, and is holding a blue handkerchief and a glass of wine in her hands. Gomer is raised back on the center stage to accompany Trixie, who is located on the far right stage.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Trixie:

Tears will be the chaser for your wine.

After you leave this love of mine.
Bright lights and taverns,
That's where you'll spend your time,
and tears will be the chaser for your wine.

How Long Will My Baby Be Gone[edit]

Following the end of the song the curtain once again closes. Shaker (also known as Terrance) then appears on the left-center stage. Shaker is a tall, tan bear who wears a tan miner’s cap with a feather in it and a tan vest. Shaker plays guitar.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Shaker:

How long is forever?

How soon is now or never?
How long will this heartache linger on?
And how long will my baby be gone?

All the Guys Who Turn Me On Turn Me Down[edit]

After Shaker sings his song, Henry reappears on the right-center stage. He introduces the next act, three identical girls from Tampa Bay, Florida: Bunny, Bubbles and Beulah. Together the three sisters are known as the Sun Bonnet Trio. All three girls have brown fur and wear blue dresses and bonnets. On stage the girls are joined by Gomer. Bunny stands in the middle with Bubbles on her left and Beulah on her right. Behind the girls a slide show illustrates the lyrics as they sing their song, “All the Guys Who Turn Me On Turn Me Down”.

The Sun Bonnet Trio. From left to right: Beulah, Bunny and Bubbles.

Song Lyrics[edit]

The Sun Bonnets:

Every time I meet a guy who gets me shook,

All I ever get from him's a dirty look.
It's the same way, everywhere I've found.
All the guys that turn me on, turn me down.

All the guys that turn me on, turn me down.
Nothing works for me that I found.
It's the same way everywhere I see.
Nothing ever seems to work for me.
Nothing ever seems to work for me.

Doodle doodle do-do-do bum bump.

Heart We Did All That We Could[edit]

Following the Sun Bonnet Trio’s song, Henry appears on the left-center stage. He then introduces the "last of the big time swingers…Teddi Barra!”. Teddi descends from a hole in the ceiling, sitting on a swing decorated with roses. She is a brown bear and wears a pink hat with a feather, as well as a long pink bow around her neck. While she begins her song (“Heart We Did All That We Could”) both Buck and Henry comment on how pretty she is.

Song Lyrics[edit]

Teddi: Well, there he goes. He hardly knows The heart he's breaking.

Henry:

Lovely, lovely.

Teddi:

I talked to him, But I don't think He understood.

Buck:

Oh, sing it gal.

Teddi:

I'll, just forget About the plans That we were making.

Henry:

My, my.

Teddi:

Heart, we did all that we could.

You all come up and see me some time,
