Melvin, Buff & Max are 3 live animal heads that hang above the theater exit doors in the Disney theme park attraction Country Bear Jamboree.

Melvin is a slow-witted but good-natured moose, Buff is an impatient buffalo and Max is a stag deer.

They often take delight in heckling the show.

Besides hanging around in Grizzly Hall, they would also appear in the Mile Long Bar restaurant, which had a side entrance that the exit to the show fed into. This version of the trio would sing songs encouraging people to stop and eat at the restaurant. When the Mile Long Bar became Pecos Bill's Tall Tale Inn, this set of heads would be removed.

In the 1980's, a character breakfast featuring Melvin took place at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.


  • Melvin, Buff & Max can be spotted in the Disneyland version of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which replaced the Country Bear Playhouse, as a tribute. They appear after the vehicles exit the Heffalumps & Woozles scene, watching Pooh enjoying his honey. Riders have to look back in order to spot them.
