Guests visiting Tomorrowland in the 1950s and 1960s would encounter a unique original Disneyland character that symbolized Americans’ interest in space exploration. In this rare photo from the summer of 1960, the Tomorrowland “Spaceman” is apparently joined by “Spacewoman.”

So, space explorers, “Caption This!”

Caption This: Tomorrowland ‘Spacecouple’ at Disneyland Park


  • Yes, I get asked that all the time…I don’t know why I need a space helmet and she does not.

  • “No, this helmet is not for space…I just have really bad breath.”

  • “Why no, these aren’t just cowboy boots painted silver! There’s a big “western” theme going around NASA these days!”

  • “Just smile and wave honey, the earthlings will never suspect a thing!”

  • “This space helmet keeps me cootie free!”

  • “The space helmet, hi-tech belt buckle…all necessities for space travel. Not needed for space travel….MY WATCH!”

  • “To Beyond and Infinity! No, it still sounds funny.”

  • The funny thing is, with a skirt this short, I could never comfortably ride Space Mountain!

  • We come in peace!

  • Hey you with the koosh…….over here!

  • I don’t need a helmet. As you can tell by my cape I’m a Superhero….and no Edna did not design this.

  • The ‘port-a-potty’ is calling.. can we PLEAZZZZZ go now?

  • These nylons are as strong as a space suit! And the hairspray will protect my hair against anything.

  • “Oh my cheeks hurt! A little breakey? Maybe just a little break..”

  • Space women do have superpowers…. but it sure gets cold up there.

  • That’s right, he said there’s just FIVE minutes of air left in his suit!

  • In the future people raise the roof with their hands!

  • Spaceman to space woman: “Who were those people? I couldn’t hear a word they said.”

  • Daling, what do you think of my latest cellphone? Guaranteed full coverage!

  • Hey Hon?

    Does this helmet make my head look fat?

  • “Did I leave the iron on?”

  • “To Infinity and Beyond!!!” (60’s style…)

  • Take me to your churros!

  • Please pick me for Jedi Training Academy!

  • Such a strange place this is! Their leaders are 2 giant mice and they’ve created assorted miniature kingdoms filled with robots to entertain them. Proceed to Space Mountain to the launch pods. We must alert our planet about this!!

  • You can’t smell the turkey legs because you are wearing a helmet!

  • “Just wave, they’ll think we’re part of the parade”
