The first human audio-animatronic figure made its debut at the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. From the title of this episode of the show, you’ve probably already realized which person that audio-animatronic represented. I’ll take a look at the 16th President & first fully audio-animatronic human figure on this week’s Word of the Week – Lincoln.
Due to a malfunction, Walt Disney was once blamed by a guest for re-enacting the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. That’s just the first couple of minutes of this show!
I mention Disney Legend Bob Gurr on the show. Check out my conversation with him (where I tried not to freak out the entire time!) here: Bob Gurr Interview
