Back in 1986, the Country Bears from the Country Bear Jamboree in Magic Kingdom Park invited guests to “forget your cares an’ join us bears in the great outdoors” when “The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown” version of the show debuted, temporarily replacing the original show.
This summer-themed show featured Shaker going to the beach and winding up in an entanglement with his octopus friend, Delores, while Wendell’s vacation slideshow drove Max, Buff and Melvin up a wall.
I never had the opportunity to attend Camp Grizzly, but it sure looks like it’d be a lot of fun. (Not to mention a cool vintage t-shirt idea).
Although you can’t catch these bears on vacation nowadays, you can still catch them at “The Country Bear Jamboree” attraction in Frontierland. Just bear to the left right before you get to Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.
