Not sure of the rarity, but my daughter had pics made 2 years ago with Geppetto from Pinnochio.

Bring back Christopher Robin!
I can't call her name right now, but is she the one with a cap on the super slueths? Where did you see her? My niece will have a fit to see her...she loves that toon!

thanks!

On Main Street, we met a face character that we still haven't figured out who he was. It wasn't the mayor, but it was a male dressed in clothing from the same period as the mayor's costume. He was wearing a bollar hat, purple waistcoat, white gloves, spats, and Ben Franklin spectacles. For all I know, I had my picture taken with another guest who just dresses funny.

Her name is Darby. She has regular meet and greets at Pooh's Playful Spot along with Tigger and Pooh.

Back in the 90s, I met Gadget from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers a couple of times at MK. In more recent years, some of the more obscure ones I've seen are Launchpad McQuack, Brer Rabbit, and Little John.

Darby?!! I would have never know that - but, yes, that is where we saw her!

I didn't have any obscure encounters to report but I'm so glad I read this thread. We were talking about Darby just this morning, wondering if she would be there for our August vacation! I admit she's no Christopher Robin but the show is very cute.

Over the years, we've had a few:

Princess Atta
Thumper (think it was '05)
Rabbit from Pooh ('06)
Walrus from Alice in Wonderland ('07 mnsshp)
Tarzan and Jane ('07 mnsshp)
Clarice
"Nemo" - the robotic thing if you can call it a character a few years back

We have tons of character pics but these are what I'd consider the rarest from our trips.

Can't wait to see what everyone has!

We met Friar Tuck and the Sherriff of Nottingham during our first trip, 2002. Haven't seen them since.

Saw Hercules and Phil at MGM in 2003.

Launchpad McQuack in 2004, loved seeing him. My little bro (mind you he's 28 now!) used to watch Ducktales every day after school...................

The rarest characters we saw on our last visit was Cinderella's step sisters and step-mother. I had never seen them before. We came out of the line in the toontown tent and they were there in the hallway.

A few have mentioned seeing Jane (from Tarzan) - we saw her also, last year - right inside the IG at Epcot.

We met Friar Tuck this past summer outside Animal Kingdom along with Stanley & his goldfish.
We also met Frozone (from Incredibles) at MGM - poor guy was up there all alone with no one around!

We saw Clarabell this past year in the Magic Kingdom parade.

During my Oct 07 trip the fairy god mother was out and about around the castle. The only place I can think about seeing Maleficent is at MNSSHP after the Villians show.
