Subject Notes:  The Orange Bird is a character created as a mascot by Disney in 1970 for the Florida Citrus Growers' Association.  He became a prominently featured character in Magic Kingdom's Adventureland at the Sunshine Tree Terrace, located near Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.

The presence of the character faded over time, but made a revival in Tokyo Disneyland in 2004 and a return to Walt Disney World in 2012.  The Orange Bird also appeared in the 1980 educational short film Foods and Fun: A Nutrition Adventure that spawned a comic book and other merchandise.
