The Swamp Boys are a music group comprised of a trio of alligators (one playing a guitar, one playing a banjo and one playing an accordion) and a harmonica-playing raccoon.

History

Development History

The Swamp Boys are three anthropomorphic alligator characters created for the now defunct attraction, America Sings in Disneyland. When America Sings closed in 1988, their animatronics were moved to the new attraction Splash Mountain. They appear in the finale scene in all 3 versions of the ride. Following Splash Mountain's announced closure due to the ride's history of racism, it is unknown what the fate of the Swamp Boys will be.

Appearances

America Sings

They first appeared in the Going South sequence of Disneyland's America Sings attraction, where they performed "Polly Wolly Doodle".

Splash Mountain

The Swamp Boys appeared in the grand finale of Splash Mountain off to the side, playing their instruments and singing Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah. In Walt Disney World, a poster in the queue of the attraction advertised the Swamp Boys as a band with the tag-line of, "If you're lookin' for music that won't bog you down".

Parades

Two of the Swamp Boys are said to be featured in Tokyo Disneyland's Dreams on Parade: Moving On as walk around characters.

Other Appearances

The alligators also appear in Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two as an animatronic jugband in Bog Easy. The alligators appear in the Zip-a-dee-do-dah day mini-game set on the Play Disney Parks app.
