To paint with

Smear, Splat, and Dip are not your ordinary painters, as you can tell by their motto, “Givin’ the Past a Brighter Future.” This crew is acrobatically inclined, and they are the most capable jugglers of paintbrushes I have ever seen. Smear and Splat are in continuous competition for the Paintbrush Trophy, which, just like it sounds, is a trophy with a paintbrush attached to the top of it. Though Dip will get in on the act from time to time, he generally moderates the contest and gets the crowd pumped up.

Smear, Splat, and Dip can be seen Wednesday through Sunday in DinoLand U.S.A., usually in front of Chester and Hester’s Dinosaur Treasures. The group generally perform six times a day between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, weather permitting of course (would you want to juggle on a ladder with wind gusts of 15 mph?!?!).

The pictures below Smear, Splat, and Dip working away from their natural habitat. During the construction work that prepared the Theater in the Wild for Finding Nemo – The Musical, they could be found in front of the refurbishment wall surrounding the theater, right where you would expect painters to be.
