About the Country Bear Jamboree
The Country Bear Jamboree is an attraction at the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort and at Tokyo Disneyland in the Tokyo Disney Resort, as well as a former attraction at Disneyland Park. All versions of the attraction are similar.
The attraction is a stage show, with audio-animatronic figures. Most of the characters are bears, who perform Country music. Characters rise up to the stage on platforms, descend from the ceiling, and appear from behind curtains. The audience includes audio-animatronic animal heads mounted on the walls who interact with characters on stage.
Due to overwhelming popularity, The Country Bear Jamboree was given a “spin-off” show which appeared during the winter season at Disneyland. It was called The Country Bear Christmas Special in 1984.
In 2002, a movie titled The Country Bears was released, based on the attraction and its characters. Source: Wikipedia
