“HAPPY (belated) 50th BIRTHDAY – CAROUSEL OF PROGRESS“
Now is the time! Now is the best time… for a great big beautiful tomorrow! The Magic in Pixels would like to wish a happy 50th birthday to the Carousel of Progress, which debuted on 4/22/1964 at the New York World’s Fair.
Kudos to the talented cast of voice actors including the legendary Jean Shepherd (current narrator), Rex Allen (narrator of World’s Fair version and grandfather in current version), and Mel Blanc (“No privacy a’tall around this place!).
Although it is time for a sprucing up (car phone? laser disc? high-def TV?) the spirit of the show is exactly as it was in the original iteration and hopefully that spirit will live on forever!
