Design Detail: Dinosaur Gerties

While I work on my trip reports from my latest retreat to Florida (and recover from some unplanned dental surgery!), here's a bit of design detail: Dinosaur Gerties from Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Even back in 1989 at the park's opening, there was alot of eye candy to be found among the scant number of attractions. In my mind, this was among the best of the lot. It was easy back then to just walk around looking at all the detail the Disney Imagineers put into the place. And it still is. In fact, my last visit to the Studios made me do alot of rethinking about how I feel about the place- but I'll save that remarkable story for the trip report...
