Crackerland Credits concept

Here rough concept of one of Postcards that i envision for the opening credits during the theme song. Similar to opening of the film National Lampoon's Vacation... but with a family on its way to Crackerland... Billboards, Maps & Post cards will show & connect the road to the park.

Artist: Les Carpenter

This is a thumbnail of Old fashion postcard ...Greeting from Florida with Bumby lounging on an Orange with See Crackerland printed on Orange ( this parody of See Rock City) bottom of postcard is the typical directions... Off Route 71 ( 71 reference to year Disney World opened) near Okey Dokee, Florida ( this parody of Florida indian town names.. very much like Okeechobee) plus it sounded silly enough, any thoughts? the dumber the better!
