Throughout the years, several characters that have
appeared on old Mickey Mouse Club and Wonderful World of Disney
shows have been given nods throughout the Disney parks. While most
of them are well known, some of them are often forgotten about. The
character we are looking at today is often forgotten about by the
average Disney guest even though he has some prime real estate
inside the Magic Kingdom.
Between 1958 and 1961, 17 episodes of the Texas John
Slaughter television show was aired on the Wonderful World of
Disney. The show was based around John Horton Slaughter, a real
person who lived from 1941-1922. The show focused on Texas John
Slaughter, a famous cowboy who "made 'em do what they oughta, and if
they didn't, they died."
So where is this prime real estate that Texas John
Slaughter has in the Magic Kingdom? While entering the Frontier
Trading Post, take a look underneath the sign to see the nod to
"Texas" John Slaughter, Trail Boss!
