My favorite thing about that oft-glossed-over aspect of Diego is the whole "Cool Water for Angela Anaconda" controversy. Basically, it was fine for Diego to hang out with bears and jaguars and Mountain Lions and whatnot. The minute he helps an anaconda, parents start screaming for that one episode to be banned. Uh-huh.

A little OT, but a good point fo UO characters. One of my favorite memories is the 2nd time ever we went to Universal, before IOA opened, we were walking in that area around Cafe La Bamba or whatever its called, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, the Marx brother coming running along in front of us throught the little planter things around there doing their shtick. It was completely random and awesome. My family and I just looked at each other and laughed.

Also, remember when Harry from Harry and the Hendersons used to be out? I remember meeting him our first time there.

Wow, I had no idea there were so many characters to meet at IoA and US. I have only been there 2 times in my life (the last time was in 2008). The only characters we met were: Rogue, Storm, Betty Boop, and Curious George with the man in the yellow hat! lol I am really looking forward to meeting some of these other characters when we go this summer. thanks for the great site!

Are the minions no longer out? I'm guessing not which sucks...i LOVE the minions!

Yeah, sadly the minions are gone. It's the HOP characters instead.

Hello,

I haven't been to US in 10 years, but when we were the we saw the Ghostbusters and they would drive the car and run the siren and get out to meet people. Has anyone seen them recently?

Love the site. It's a fantastic resourse.

For anyone who has been lately, I was wondering if there have been any characters changes since the Spring. Are all the Hop characters gone? Any extra characters out for the Summer?

autograph books?

Does Universal sell Autograph/Photo books like Disney does - one page for photo to slide in and the other is for the autograph?
Just curious! Thanks!

Does anyone know if the Hop characters are still out? Do you know how long they will be out? We will be there in October and I am hoping they will still be there. What do you think?
