I thought it might be fun to bounce around some ideas.  I absolutely love the Saloon show.  For our family, it is a must-do each time we visit SDC.  My favorite story line for the Saloon show are the ones where Mean Murphy comes to town.  I was going over the script in my mind, and I thought of some ways to "refresh" the story a little.  I really wouldn't change much.  Below you will find my version of the script after Murphy sings "I'm Mean!".  Here's how I would "tweak" the script:

Rosie Roots:  So tell me, Murphy, why are you so keen on finding “Bill” from St. Louis?

Mean Murphy:  Nope, nope, I can’t talk about it.

Cast:  Come on, Murphy.  Tell us.  Come on, Mr. Mean!

Mean Murphy:  No.  It’s personal.. It’s just between me and Bill!

Rosie Roots: Aw, come on, Murphy.  It can’t be that bad.  Bill seems like a nice guy.  Uh, I mean, if… if I ever had a chance to meet him.  I mean, with a name like “Bill”, he sounds like a good fella... especially if he comes from up St. Louis way.

Mean Murphy:  Well, he ain’t.  Trust me.

Charlie:  So what did he do, Murphy?  Make a “beak” joke in front of all your pals?

Mean Murphy: (In an outburst of anger.) Leave my nose out of it, Chuck!.  Wait a minute. All right. (Composing himself).  All right, I’m going to take my therapist’s advice and I’m going to open up about my struggles and feelins’.  Since you are all so concerned about “Bill” from St. Louis, I’m gonna tell ya what he did. (Getting angry again)   He’s that no-good, low-down, lilly-livered, egg-suckin’ snake in the grass that BIT MY NOSE OFF!

Cast:   Ewwww!!  Nasty!

Mean Murphy:  So, now you know!  (Getting emotional)  It IS PERSONAL between me and Bill from St. Louis.

Rosie Roots: Boy, I’ll say!

Mean Murphy:  He has no idea of what he has put me through over the last year!  (Getting more emotional)  Do you have any idea what it is like to go through life without a nose?

Charlie: I guess nobody but you “nose” that, Murphy!  Hey, do you know why a nose can’t be 12 inches long?  Because then it would be a “foot”!  Do you know what you’ll find if you look in a pig’s nose? A ham booger!

Mean Murphy:  You see, you see, that’s the kind of stuff I’ve got to put up with!  Nose jokes, booger jokes!  I’ve heard them all!  Plus on top of all that..  (very emotional)  I have…  I have what the doctor’s call “phantom sinusitis”!

Rosie Roots: Phantom sinusitis, what’s that?

Mean Murphy: Well, it’s like my nose, or lack thereof, is just all clogged up.  I can’t breath in!  I can’t breath out! And it gives me this poundin’ sinus headache day and night.  It makes a fella just a little bit irritable!

Rosie Roots: I bet it does! 

Mean Murphy:  And I’ve tried everything to get some relief. There was that cowpoke up in Cheyenne who told me to tie a baby skunk around my neck.  That didn’t work.  And the little rascal chewed me up somethin’ fierce!

Charlie:  Sounds like his advice really stunk!

Mean Murphy:  Then there was that Cherokee medicine man that sold me some herbs to stuff inside my gold “prosthetic” nose. He called it C-B-D.

Rosie Roots: C-B-D, what does that stand for?

Mean Murphy:  It stands for “Cherokee Breathin’ Detoxifier” and he promised it would cure my phantom sinusitis.  So I started breathin’ in that stuff and it wasn’t five minutes later and it was lights out, son!.  I mean to tell ya I didn’t come to for three days.

Rosie Roots: Sounds like a nightmare!

Mean Murphy:  But the absolute worst thing by far was the contraption a French fellow sold me up in Kansas City.

Rosie Roots: Really, what was that?

Mean Murphy:  He called it a “neti pot”.

Rosie Roots: A what-y what?

Mean Murphy: A “neti pot”.  It’s this little pot with a spout on it.  You fill it up with hot water and you pour it in your nose, if a person had one, and it’s supposed to clean out your sinuses.

Rosie Roots: Well did it work?

Mean Murphy: No it didn’t work!  It was terrible!  Water going everywhere.  I pert-near drownded on dry land.  It was humiliating!

Rosie Roots: I can see why you might be a bit perturbed towards, Bill.  Tell us, Mr. Mean, just for hypothetical reasons, what would you do if you did come across Bill from St. Louis?

Mean Murphy:  What would I do?  What would I do!  Well, first I’m gonna use that neti pot on him, then I’m going to discombobulate him, and then I’m going to take him by the ears and make a big wish!

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Gaslight Square Commercial
« on: May 04, 2020, 12:01:27 PM »
Came across a commercial from May 1989 advertising Gaslight Square.

To be honest, I don't have any memories of Gaslight Square.  I would have been 18 at the time and was much more interested in rides and having fun away from the parents!  :)  However, after viewing this commercial, in hindsight I'm really glad this theme was quickly replaced.

A documentary for Time Traveler was just posted on Youtube.  Absolutely beautiful footage.  Also quite a bit of behind-the-scenes footage showing how the ride operates.

Hey, guys.

I found a very interesting film transfer that was recently posted to YouTube.  What really makes this video unique is the in-vehicle footage shot while traveling to SDC.

Hey, everyone.

I was hit be a bad case of SDC withdrawl symptoms this afternoon, so I started digging around on the SDC website.  I found under the Press Room section an excellent video regarding the SDC train.  I personally had never seen it before.  There's quite a bit of behind-the-scenes footage and a good bit of history.

Go to...

Choose Silver Dollar City Press Library.

Then open the Videos folder.



General Silver Dollar City Talk / Drone Video of SDC
« on: November 30, 2015, 12:23:21 PM »
This has got to be one of the coolest yet poorest titled SDC videos on YouTube.  :)  It is titled "Silverdollar city Branson Missouri".  It is a four minute aerial view of SDC recorded using a Phantom 3 drone.  The views of the park are excellent!

Watch it in full screen mode and enjoy!


General Silver Dollar City Talk / Memorial Day Weekend Crowds
« on: May 18, 2015, 03:03:56 PM »

My family is toying with the idea of going to SDC over the Memorial Day weekend.  This will be our only chance to enjoy the Bluegrass & BBQ Festival.  Are we totally out of our minds?!?  I have never been at SDC during a holiday, so I am not sure if the crowd level will be unbearable.  Has anyone been to SDC during a Memorial Day weekend in the recent past?

Thanks, guys.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Outlaw Run Documentary
« on: April 16, 2013, 11:20:25 AM »
I came across a really well done documentary entitled "From Dreams to Screams: Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City" detailing the design and construction of Outlaw Run.  There are interviews with Joel Manby (Herschend Family Entertainment CEO), Brad Thomas (Silver Dollar City GM) and Fred Grubb (Rocky Mountain Construction Co-Founder).  This video was produced in conjunction with

The producers also released a "behind the scenes" video.

I'm still looking forward to my first trip to SDC in 2013.  Looks like it will be next month.


General Silver Dollar City Talk / Atmosphere Recordings
« on: October 26, 2012, 10:39:06 AM »
Hello, SDCFans...

I'm just curious if anyone has, or has seen available online, any "atmosphere" recordings of SDC?  To me, a good quality audio recording would be just as good as a video.  There are many examples of what I am referring to for all the Disney parks.  Here is a short example....

I am hoping to try to do this next year.
