    The barker bird, who sat out front of the Tiki Room when it first opened in 1963, blew a fuse right in front of the guests! "I blew a fuse! I blew a fuse! Turn me off! Turn me off!"

    This is the key part. Not the poking fun. And that's an attraction, not a TV commercial. And (here we go again) it's the Tiki Room, not the dang Jungle Cruise.

    >>It's interesting that so many here are okay with the 'Jungle Cruise' commercial. <<

    Interesting? Yes. Veddy interesting.

    You're in a very small minority. It happens around here. Stop obsessing over it.

    I have audio of the great Paul Frees doing the same type of tongue in cheek mocking radio commercials for the opening of the Haunted Mansion. Disney's been doing this type of thing since 1969 at least. It's nothing new, and I think it's kinda clever. Not the greatest of 3D animation, but it makes the point.

    You get the impression that I'm obsessing over this?

    Maybe you're obsessed with me?

    Snarky Jungle Cruise animals? Not so much.

    No...no I don't...why is that stupid again?

    Suspension of disbelief and suspension of one's stupid-o-meter are two different things.

    Even my good old inner child prefers humor that's actually funny.
