Kimballum Horriblus is the official name retroactively assigned to the Sea Serpent from the defunct attraction, World of Motion.



The Kimballum Horriblus is a species of sea-serpent documented as having lived in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Monaco. Around 1492, it terrorized Spanish/Italian colonist Cristóbal Colón. The only known documentation of the animal was performed by sailor and scientist Captain Mary Oceaneer on a map created for the Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

Development history

The sea serpent originally appeared in the attraction World of Motion where it terrorized a depiction of Cristóbal Colón. The creature's figure was later moved to the queue of the Hollywood Studios Backlot in Disney's California Adventure along with other props from World of Motion. Eventually, this figure was dismantled and removed. The appointed name of Kimballum Horriblus was created for the Skipper Canteen, being a tribute to imagineer Ward Kimball who worked on World of Motion.
