Painting Animatronics

This looks like fun.  Once upon a time I (not pictured) painted animatronics.  I used paint on my brushes because I was not as good as these ladies who could paint without paint.

Which one's the robot?

That does look like fun. I'm it's not exactly how it looks in the picture though.

Teddy sure isn't enjoying himself.

THANK YOU for posting this! There are many levels to this pic that the average person might not understand. Allow me to point them out:

1. She has NO idea what paint is. She's never seen it in it's liquid state.
2. She's getting fried chicken grease all over that expensive animatronic figure. (what she didn't manage to lick off of her arm that is)
3. Roosevelt is going for his gun because the DEVIL is peeking over his shoulder.
4. She's almost as smart as San Juan Hill and Teddy knows it.
5. NEVER run amok around her because she doesn't know what a "mok" is. You should also have a liscense to run one.
6 Feed the devil bacon and she will grant your wishes.
7. In the lower right corner you can see a "Devil in training" who also has no use for paint.
8. Devil in training discovered the Color Wheel 7 years AFTER being hired as a professional artist!
9. Both of these winners know one thing. If you can't mix the color, change the documentation!

Print this picture and burn it, folks, lest you catch the "lazy desease" and fall asleep at your desk.

HAHAHA! This post was made for you, Hoot, for this vey reason.

I wonder if she knew how to find the Hall of Presidents or if she had been inside since Gerald Ford was added.

Pretty cool looking, and fascinating...have any more pics?

January 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEric Ross

Yep! I'll put together a post of images like this. I have plenty of photos of animatronics being painted.
