80s gag

The Balancing Skunks (nicknamed them Bailey and Paisley) from the Country Fair scene of Knott’s Bear-y Tales. Originally, when the ride first opened Bailey balanced a pair of small critters (minks or beavers) on his head. There is no shot currently of the figure up front with those guys, only side views of the original effect. In the 80s, the gag was replaced with the addition of another Skunk (Paisley) made to match the other figure and spin a hoop on his arm. In my opinion, while the addition was awesome. Its kind of weird with the design of the top skunk. It looks like it was painted on styrofoam or some kind of material lol. But then again, it wasn’t too noticeable under the blacklight and incandescent lighting that was in this ride. Still, its a bit off lol. If the ride was still around today, I can totally imagine an amalgamate of the original gag mixed in with the second skunk creating a stacking effect. That would have been cool haha
