You have to love an homage to Roger Meyers Sr.
After all, without a Roger Meyers Sr., there wouldn’t be a Roger Meyers Jr. And that would be a real shame! Kinda.
Roger Meyers Sr. is based very, very, very, very loosely on Walt Disney. They both had mustaches. That is about where the similarity ends. But that didn’t stop him from stealing concepts from Walt, most notably with his films, Steamboat Itchy, and Scratchtasia.
He is the consummate schlock film-maker…whose legacy is the felonious and murderous pair that this theme park is based upon. So…why not a statue?
Why not indeed? Let’s Take A Look at the details!
Apropos to the value Roger Meyer Sr. brought to the film and entertainment industry, his statue pretty much does nothing. But that doesn’t stop it from having a script! Kind of like his films…a whole lot of talking with nothing going on.

Comes with dialogue
Squeaky Voice Attendant: The Roger Meyers Sr. Statue celebrates the life of America’s most lovable entertainer.
Lisa: Lovable? Many of his movies used racial stereotypes for comic relief. And there was his collaboration with the House Un-American Activities Committee. Not to mention his relentless union-busting, which to this day leaves animators woefully underpaid for their work.
SqueakyVoiceAttendant: ... Okay, take down the statue!
Lisa: No, no, leave it up. I’m just saying.
If THAT didn’t WOW YOU…then I am concerned about you liking the NEXT PRIZE- Diane! (after you grind a ton, and earn the right to bonuts).
