Meeting Maynard

The first time I encountered Maynard was on The Haunted Mansion. I was with my friends and he popped out from the corner (right after you enter the Doom Buggy). He showed his flashlight on his closed hand and opened it revealing a plastic frog as he said “Look a frog!!!”. At the time I had no idea who he was, just a wierd Cast Member…nothing more. Then I found a web site that was about Maynard, a Cast Member at Disneyland. So I read about him… Now, I work at Disneyland and I see him every once in a while. He is the same back stage as he is on! He always says hi to...

Meeting Maynard

Hello, My name is Ken and I have been going to Disneyland for about 30 years now. I have always loved the Jungle Cruise because I am a big fan of corny, good-natured, and creative humor. My wife and I were on the ride about a month ago when we were privileged to have Maynard as our skipper. He had lots of interesting items hanging from his safari hat which quickly indicated that this man was completely out of his mind…my type of guy. His delivery was hilarious. He had a young guest steer the boat (the first time I had ever seen that in those 30 years) and did very entertaining...

Meeting Maynard

My name is Jim Tapp, I’ve had a number of run-ins with Maynard and his Twin Brothers around Disneyland. Last weekend, I happened to stumble into Maynard in a very unusual circumstance. We were costumed as Imperial Stormtroopers, visiting the Rennaisance Pleasure Faire in Devore and happened to spot Maynard there. We had to take a couple of pictures of it, just to prove our chance meeting with him . — Jim (TK861)

Meeting Maynard

I first encountered Maynard at the FOF (that’s Festival of Fools to you!) but his wit and persona brightened a not so perfect trip to the “Happiest Place on Earth” lately. After a fall (over a metal basket rack in Star Traders —Watch Out!) I limped to meet some friends and reclaim my 6 yr. old (Formerly known as Esmerelda, at said FOF, and now, known as Rose, or is that “Mulan” – ALWAYS in character of course…) in the Honey, I shrunk the Audience and who should we encounter but THE MAN himself, where I “tried” to explain him to my...

Meeting Maynard

I’d had a season pass to disneyland since 1994, and I never saw or heard of Maynard. Anyways in November of 1996 my great-grandfather had passed away at the age of 92. My whole family was heart broken. We had some family members come down for the funeral from Washington. Since they hadn’t been to Disneyland in a while and my great-grandfather had built and helped design some parts on the submarine ride, we thought it would be a good idea to go to Disneyland. There were 10 of us going, and we were the most depressed people at The Happiest Place On Earth. Then we saw this boat...

Meeting Maynard

On a lighter note, we met “Jungle” Maynard and his “evil twin” for the first time last week. I can’t believe that we never met “them” before. What a great couple of guys!!!!!!! He terrified and delighted my girlfriend and Mom at the same time. Please forward this to the Maynards for me. Viva Disneyland!!!!!!!!!!!!! Frank Fontana II

Meeting Maynard

I first read about Maynard here on this page, and I thought it would be fun to meet him. I searched in vain for him every time I visited the park, and I almost gave up. But one fateful Halloween, I stepped inside the Haunted Mansion elevator and heard heard the famous “Like a haunted bowl of mashed potatoes–squishy squishy!” I was so excited! My sister and I nervously approached him after the room had emptied, and he agreed to sign our autograph books. But he did more than that– he took us back up in the elevator and arranged for the CMs to bump around him so he could...

Meeting Maynard

Re: Maynard- I’ve been on the Haunted Mansion many times when Maynard was there, and he really added to the experience. I look kind of spooky myself, and he took the accent off of us and onto the ride. One time I went there late at night, the last ride of the night, and he scared everyone else into the corners of the elevator. I played along, and people asked me if he was my brother. I was the only one left in the center of the room with him, and fed into his ambience. I think Disneyland should keep him as a permanent attraction!

Meeting Maynard

Well I met Maynard about a year ago. When i got my annual pass. My friends had met him before and they told me I have got to meet this Maynard. I was very confused when they told me about him. That night after keeping an eye out for him they found him. I did not understand what they were talking about. He seemed like an ordinary guy, until he pulled a little plastic TOY STORY toy out of his shirt pocket and started to have a conversation with it. I thought he was crazy, but he sure made me laugh. I have about 10 other Maynard storys I would like to share some other time. I think that there...

Meeting Maynard

At first I thought it was over blown myth, ya know – those wacky urban folk lore tales shared by fun loving friends. And I expected that when (IF!) I got a chance to see this person named Maynard I’d find that indeed my Disneyland-loving friends had truly blown this one way out of proportion. But NO WAY!!! Much to our collective surprise – there he was, on the Haunted Mansion pacing in a Maynard-like trance, escorting – no – scaring the guests out of their ghost buggies. Then Katty approached and out came the tortured, three-eyed squeeze toy and then the faces...
