The Walt Disney World Easter Parade with Doug: Revisited

A couple years back I featured Doug’s Easter, 1985 appearance on the Walt Disney World Easter Parade. Doug’s segments are stretched out throughout the show, and at the time I just featured the parade as it aired unedited.  Well, cut to today being Easter, and I thought it was high time I fixed that, and…
