Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

(Thinking of Karen and Richard Carpenter? I have tons of Carpenters related posts on this blog. Just not this article...)

Still on the Tomorrowland kick... I wanted to post this for quite awhile, but couldn't find it until now. I took this photo in 1990 of concept art for a new use of the Carousel Theater at Disneyland. I believe the name was to be Plectu's Intergalatic Revue. This was back in the day before characters invaded, when aliens from other planets came and staked territory first. The friendlier ones were to put on this show, and an angrier alien was to make his appearance at the West Coast version of the great Alien Encounter. Plans change, ideas change, and this concept art was eventually removed from the public eye. The building would have looked great- and I left the enlarged image quite big so that the details can be seen.
