Animatronic Hippos are Not In Danger!

In response to the "false rumors" of the "endangered" animatronic hippos, the "truth" is brought out in a personal interview with the world renowned radio personality, Albert Awol, Voice of the Jungle!

There is only one thing that scares 'Jungle Cruise' skippers more than the prospect of being attacked by an animatronic hippo. And that would be the prospect of Walt Disney Imagineering adding a Tim Allen or Tom Hanks animatronic figure to the 'Jungle Cruise.'.

I heard the Tim Allen animatronic was going to *replace* the skippers. The boats would just run on an automated system now. And no more non-SOP spiels!

Screamscape had a update today talking about the friendly feud between East and West Coast JC Skippers and the hippos. They even started battling web sites for saving the hippos. Disneyland is and Disney World is

Here is Scremscape link on it.
