The show featured four animatronic animal characters performing Jazz music.


Daniel lives!

The animatronic show was an off-the-shelf product, and there are still copies of it performing today in pizza restaurants. YouTube has many videos of it. There seems to be configurations with only three characters, as well as four character versions like Adventureland had.

More robots!

This show featured the most animated characters, but they aren't the only ones. At the front of the Palace Theater is P.T. Barnaby, a human animatronic. Inside the Underground are several other human characters.
