    I was recently listening to some NY64 World's Fair audio - specifically the Fission/Fusion exhibit hosted by two birds (one voiced by Wally Boag and the other by Paul Frees) - and the audio to that GE exhibit sparked my interest.

    Does anyone have more information on this specific exhibit, and per chance does the Audio-Animatronic bird in "One Man's Dream" come from this show?

    Thanks! :)

    I have a love hate relationship with the Fission/Fusion Show. Love that they included (or did they if it was never "released"?) such a rare bit, but hate what a horrible song it is, rhyme, tune, and meter. Other than that I can't tell you anything.

    I can tell you that the bird in the exhibit, is just a standard Tiki Toucan so I don't expect that WDI stored a certain one away for years just because it appeared in the NYWF show. Most likely they just grabbed a Tiki bird because it's controls were relatively simple for the guest to do. Just guessing though.

    Thanks -- I had guessed it was the Paul Frees bird as it wears a French beret. ;)

    It is the same bird used in the television show. Walt talks to it, and Wally's voice is used. They (Walt and the bird) discuss the correct pronunciation of Audio-Animatronics.

    But that bird did NOT wear a beret did it?
