Which Animatronic Would You Be?

Of all the animatronics at Disney, Universal, or just about any theme park: which one would you want to be?

This is my first post, and this is a question that I've been interested in asking for a while. So yes, let's say for a moment that you have to be an animatronic at any theme park of your choice. Any ride, any animatronic. And you have to be this animatronic for the rest of your life.

Keep in mind that the life of an animatronic can be painfully repetitive, as you would be doing the same spiels every 20 - 60 seconds, everyday, for the rest of your life. It doesn't neccessarily have to be your favourite animatronic, but one you would have the most fun being as.

I personally can't answer this question quite yet, as I'm still thinking about which one would be best for me... So, which one would you be?

Certainly not Everest's Yeti. I'll pick Dinosaur's last Carnotaurus to keep scaring people.

Like James said defintely not the yeti. Probably i would have to be the T-Rex on Jurassic park at IOA.

Do the 5 ghostly guests of the Hollywood Hotel count?

HAHA the yeti remark made laugh!! And that's interesting with the dinosaur choices, I guess to constantly see guests reactions to horror would be quite entertaining. I like the C3PO choice as with that one, you constantly have variety with the many different ride options.

And Bryce, yes the ghostly guests can count. But out of the five guests, which one would you be and or why?

The rich guy!

He's wealthy (I assume), he's got a famous (I assume) girlfriend for the rest of eternity and he's wearing a suit. Woo-hoo.

And I wouldn't mind living in the Tower of Terror and looking all cool waving at people then disappearing into electricity.

Abe Lincoln in "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln". His words are just about the greatest ever written in American history.

One of the Pirates. Either the one hanging out on the bridge, or the one drinking rum with the pigs.

Ok Karly.... On a side note I think Rao's animatronic would be Walter or Statler ;)

THE DOG! You get to watch as you control the lives of 3 prisoners. I would assume they would do anything to get that key.

Anyone in the Haunted Mansion. It has air conditioning. That's a must in my book :)

I'm pretty lazy, so I wouldn't really want to do anything. I choose the Yeti.
