History of the Mickey Mouse Watch: Abridged

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 22, 2009

Mickey WatchIn this image taken off of Hollywood Boulevard is a classic Mickey Mouse watch used as the illuminated street sign to entice Guests inside the shop.

In 1933, the first Mickey Mouse watch was made by Ingersoll Waterbury Clock Co.  During this time, the company’s financial condition was very poor, but they released their Mickey Mouse watch for $3.25 and later for $2.95.  The popularity of the watches brought Ingersoll Waterbury Clock Co. out of their debts.  Production continued through to the 1960s when the company became US Time and later Timex.

Addendum: It Might Be Too Strong

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 11, 2009

Lights Motors ActionIn a previous post, I mentioned the appearance of Brawny and Kodak at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Lights, Motors, Action is located at the end of the Streets of America all the way in the back of the park, bathrooms are located in numerous places, while the billboards are off of Sunset and Hollywood Blvd.  I just want to say that the stretch of advertisement for Brawny is awesome.  I wonder if you might ever see a Custodial Cast Member carrying around a role.

It Might Be Too Strong

Posted by Ashley Rae on April 7, 2009

According to Disney.com, both Brawny and Kodak are Hosts or Presenters within the Disney Theme Parks. Advertisements for both can be found cleverly placed along Hollywood Boulevard as billboards above the shopping areas.

Kodak products can be found in the shops, while Brawny hand washing tips are located in the restrooms. Something that I found not on Disney.com was a agreement with Quilted Northern. Despite the announced agreement, one of the most noticeable advertisements in the park are the painted bricks between the restrooms on Sunset Boulevard.
