Orange Bird

Orange Bird

The Orange Bird is a theme park only character that could be found in ads about Florida Oranges back in the day. He disappeared for quite some time until Disney brought him back in a big way a few years ago. He can be found in various merchandise, such as clothing, pins, toys, kitchen ware, books, computer cases, Disney art, vinylmations, and a few other types of merchandise.

The Orange Bird was unlike any mascot at the time. He is very bright and colorful. The Florida Citrus Commission came to Disney and wanted them to create a mascot to use in their ads and various other projects that they had planned.

Orange Bird

The Orange Bird is orange, yellow, and green. His head is shaped like an orange while his wings are shaped like leafs. He can't talk so he uses thought clouds as his means of communication.

The Orange Bird can be found in Disney parks around the world. He used to be a common meet and greet character, but lately has been extremely rare to find. He can also be found at the Sunshine Tree Terrace, and in reference form.

Orange Bird

The Orange Bird song, which was penned by the famous Sherman Brothers is one of my favorites:

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?

Think of funny thoughts. (Think a funny thought.) Or a sunny word. (Or a sunny word.) That will make me happy, little Orange Bird.

He thinks beautiful orange pictures, and beautiful orange words. Though his little beak, can't even peep a squeak. All the thoughts he ever spoke, appear in orange smoke. That's what makes the Orange Bird unique.

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?

Think of funny thoughts. (Think a funny thought.) Or a sunny word. (Or a sunny word.) That will make me happy, little Orange Bird.

When you're just about green with envy, or gonna be feeling blue, You can use a little orange thought or two. When you start in blushing pink, or your temper turns you red. That's when the Orange Bird can see you through.

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me? Think of funny thoughts. (Think a funny thought.) Or a sunny word. (Or a sunny word.) That will make me happy, little Orange Bird.

With his beautiful orange feathers, and beautiful leafy wings, He's a fluffy little puffy sight to see. He can turn your frown around, when you see him looking down, The Orange Bird up in the Sunshine Tree.

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?

Think of funny thoughts. (Think a funny thought.) Or a sunny word. (Or a sunny word.) That will make me happy, little Orange Bird.

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?

Little Orange Bird, (Little Orange Bird), In the Sunshine Tree. (in the Sunshine Tree.) Won't you think of something sunny just for me?
