When you think of Disneyland, the “Happiest Place on Earth,” you can’t help but marvel at the attractions that whisk you away to imaginative realms.

From underwater voyages to snow-capped mountains, the park has something for everyone. The man behind the magic?

The incomparable Bob Gurr.

Bob Gurr, the last original Imagineer, has a witty retort: “If it moves on wheels at Disneyland, I probably designed it.”

Indeed, his impressive portfolio boasts over 200 motion projects, including the Autopia cars, Haunted Mansion doom buggies, and the iconic Disneyland Monorail.

A true Disney Legend, Gurr’s captivating story unfolds like a riveting theme park ride.

Growing up near Grand Central Air Terminal, Gurr was enthralled by the planes overhead. This fascination led him to study industrial design at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles.

Little did he know that his passion for mechanics would collide with Disney’s world of enchantment.

Walt Disney’s keen eye recognized Gurr’s talent, and in 1954, he invited him to join WED Enterprises, now known as Disney Imagineering.

Tasked with designing miniature Autopia vehicles, Gurr created a sensation when Disneyland opened in 1955. Despite his initial aversion to mathematics, his work continued to thrill parkgoers with the Matterhorn bobsleds.

Gurr’s knack for innovation didn’t stop at Disneyland. He collaborated with Universal Studios Hollywood, designing the colossal King Kong Encounter animatronic.

His work with Steven Spielberg on the Jurassic Park T-Rex animatronic dinosaur and Michael Jackson’s Victory Tour are just a few examples of his creative prowess.

The revered Disney Legend Award was bestowed upon Gurr in 2004, and his handprints grace the Court of Legends at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank.

With his name adorning Main Street USA in Disneyland and The Magic Kingdom, Gurr’s legacy is etched into the fabric of Disney history.

Bob Gurr, the mastermind behind Disneyland’s most iconic ride vehicles, has left an indelible mark on the hearts of Disney enthusiasts worldwide.

With a career spanning over six decades, Gurr’s imaginative spirit continues to inspire future generations of Imagineers.

In a delightful twist of fate, the man who once breathed life into inanimate objects now finds himself immortalized as a whimsical collectible.

Bob Gurr, the master of magical motion, has been transformed into a charming Funko Pop! figure.

It’s the ultimate tribute to a man who’s brought so much joy and wonder to the world.

So, let’s raise a toast to Bob Gurr – the original Imagineer, the ride vehicle virtuoso, and the newest addition to our Funko Pop! collection. Here’s to the creative genius who made wheels spin, bobsleds slide, and our hearts soar.

Bob, you truly are a Disney Legend.
