(Disneyland, 1959) Possibly the most iconic portion of the original "Submarine Voyage" attraction was its grand finale encounter with the giant Sea Serpent. This large animatronic prop from the Disneyland attraction entertained countless park guests over the years with its long body and comical googly-eyed expression. This Sea Serpent was a Disneyland icon for nearly 30 years before the attraction closed in 1998. This large animatronic prop was removed prior to the "Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage" refurbishment in 2007. The Sea Serpent is composed of five separate sections, which were disguised by rock formations in the attraction. Each section is made of hand-painted fiberglass which has been lightly touched up. The Sea Serpent was originally operated by pneumatic tubing, which has now been switched to electric so the figure can operate by a control switch. The head turns left to right and the eyes rotate in their familiar, comical way. Both moving aspects can be activated together or independently from one another. This incredible Disneyland artifact measures an impressive combined 48ft long, 6ft tall, and 3ft wide. The Sea Serpent is in very good restored condition, with some expected minor wear throughout from use. This item will require special shipping arrangements. Please inquire before bidding.
