I wonder if there's any substantive alteration being made to the show building or the stage area (may have come up in the thread and I just missed it). Is this strictly re-dressing/upgrading the original figures, or are we getting any more... anywhere in the room?

I think they just changed the backdrops for the bears. As far as I’m aware, they did not alter the gilding detail that is found at the top of each miniature stage.

Updated SFX should show lots of faux blood spurting out all over the place if Blood on the Saddle remains.

There could be a whole running gag about not singing Let It Go. Because last time they did:

There was snow on the saddle…snow on the ground…

It would be just as silly without singing about blood everywhere to children. This isn’t the 70’s. You could still say the n-word on TV back then, for perspective.

I’d be very surprised if they update a show only to keep those lyrics.

I didn’t have that comparison on my WDWmagic bingo card.

Are we really at a point where the word blood in a comedy setting is offensive? Nothing in the original country bears was offensive - it’s slapstick vaudeville comedy - the same that you see in the classic muppet show and even the early and original Mickey Mouse shorts.

I’m more offended by the fact that half of the bears were halfway through ODing.

Perhaps I'm odd, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Davy Crockett remain. It's got an interesting status as both actual Disney IP while also having become a bit of Americana. Honestly, to me, it's the only song from CBJ that has much cultural significance outside the attraction - I mean, the song was featured in Back to the Future to help create the ambiance of the 1950s, for example. It was actually the song I thought was most likely to stay if any.

Now, I would agree that I can never tell what might end of in the radar of the DEI folks - it seems likely/possible that CBJ changing was partially due to those sentiments anyway - but as long as the lyrics are for the early verses that are pretty inoffensive as was the case in the past for CBJ, I think it could remain.
