Disney's Jungle Cruise contest: Find Disney/Pixar's John Lasseter

This is one contest sure to excite TH Creative.

Disney has announced a contest that is sure to bring back memories of old and share them with memories yet to come.

In late 1977 through early 1978 John Lasseter (Current Disney Chief Creative Officer) skippered many a guest on the Jungle Cruise Adventure. Now Disney is on the hunt to find irrefutable evidence that John was a skipper. So far their hunt has turned up nothing, but your old family heirloom could be the key to a trip for 4 to the GRAND OPENING of Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure in Summer 2012.

So dust off those old trunk in your attic and see what photos you can dig up. Visit The Jungle Cruise Hunt here to learn more about how to submit.

Oh, and bonus points on TPI (from me. No effect on Disney's contest) if you get one posted with a young TH Creative or Robert Niles on the same ship. Just Kidding!

Good Luck Skippers!

It would help to know what John Lasseter looked like circa 1977. If someone has a photo of the Jungle Cruise from 1977 or 1978 with him in the background, how would they know whether it's him?

Amazing request. I usually don't take photos of the skippers. Too bad.

All you need is a photo of him in that year and edit it, and BINGO!

This just cries for a Photoshop contest, doesn't it?

I am excited!
