Welcome to the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown! Got out my old camp t-shirt. It still fits, kinda, and I'm raring to go!
―Henry

The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown was an attraction created due to the overwhelming popularity of Country Bear Jamboree.

The show debuted at Disneyland in February 1986, replacing the original show. That May, Walt Disney World followed suit. It remained there until February 1992, when the original show returned. At Disneyland, however, it remained until their Country Bear Playhouse closed on September 9th, 2001.

On July 15th, 1994, the show opened at Tokyo Disneyland as the "Vacation Jamboree". Out of the three shows, it features the most differences between the US and Japanese versions. Several of the songs are different and there is more dialogue from Henry.

Characters

Because the show was a Vacation Hoedown, the characters in the show were put into vacation-themed outfits for their acts.

Note: This page describes ONLY the special vacation costumes of the characters. For information on how the characters appear in their normal show and the many voice actors that bring them to life, please consult the Country Bear Jamboree page.

Henry - He wears his old "Camp Grizzly" t-shirt (which barely fits him) and a scout master's hat.

Liver Lips - He becomes an Elvis impersonator in this show, appearing as a mountain-climber wearing an Elvis-style shirt with a blue lederhosen. He plays a Fender stratocaster guitar with a strap and a portable amplifier.

Wendell - He wears a vacation shirt and hat and carries a camera, which he takes a couple of flash pictures with.

Teddi Barra - She wears a yellow raincoat and galoshes and holds an umbrella.

Ernest - He wears his old derby from the original show and a striped shirt. He even uses a fly swatter as a bow for his fiddle.

Shaker - In this show, he wears a blue scuba mask and snorkel and blue trunks. Seaweed is around him. He's also accompanied by his octopus "girlfriend," Delores.

Trixie - She holds a napkin in one hand and a sandwich in the other. She wears a pink skirt with butterflies on it and a hat.

Big Al - In this show, he wears a plaid flannel shirt with a miner's hat and camping gear.

The Five Bear Rugs

Baby Oscar - He wears a Boy Scout uniform and still has his teddy bear to keep him company.

Buff - He wears a fisherman's hat.

Max - He wears a green baseball cap.

Melvin - He has lots of assorted hats in this show, most of which are hanging on his antlers as if they were hat racks.

The Show

Tumblr lnq1u8t25j1qmom56o1 1280
The show features the Country Bears celebrating the many joys of summer and the great outdoors. Its opening is different from the other shows because Melvin, Buff & Max do not talk at the beginning. Instead, the Five Bear Rugs can be heard tuning up their instruments, then Zeke calls for Rufus to turn on the lights and then the show begins.
