According to "Behind the Music", at that point in their career Fleegle was strung out on smack and you couldn't get Bingo and Snorky in the same room without fistfight.

I have a very vague memory of riding the raft when I was very young -- probably the same visit on which I rode the Sky Hook and the tree slides.

The first Indian you see rising up from the canoe is dressed differently from when I worked there. I remember him having a feathered headdress.

The second Indian in the video looks like the witch doctor from the Indian village, but the background looks like the French trading post. The shot goes by so quickly that it's hard to tell.

I remember being herded onto the rafts and watching the water lap up over the sides on the way to Skull Island and being afraid of it sinking but also anticipating all the adventures when we arrived. I tell ya, I felt like Tom Sawyer on that island. Going down the tree slide and having the burlap sack come out from under me and getting friction burns on my elbows and legs. Yeah, good times, good times. And no, I'm not being facetious!

Always nice to bring memories back. Even nicer in video, not just still pictures. Thanks for the links, Cleusk.
