9 seriously creepy Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons

As we get ready to celebrate 87 years of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, let’s take a moment to reflect on its creepiest characters.

Lip-Smackin’ Felix

Introduced to the parade in 1927, Felix the Cat was a trendsetter. He was also either very thirsty or very excited. His smile features a dangling tongue that raises Felix’s creepy factor a few bars.

Way Too Happy Cat

This cat from 1931 rivals the creepy clowns dragging it. To be honest, we don’t know which freaks us out more.

Dying Alligator

The folks at The Wire deduced that this was the alligator from the 1932 parade. What they did not deduce was the murder weapon clearly protruding from the alligator’s head. Rest in peace little guy.

Old Worried Pig

This spotted pig from 1932 must have a lot on his mind. His brow is way too furrowed for a normal, happy pig. Maybe he knows that a menu of Christmas ham is just around the corner.

Disembodied Head and Terrified Woman

This scene from 1930 pretty much sums up all that is creepy about the Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you’ll notice, this image features a series of wide-eyed, disembodied heads floating along behind a woman who appears to be running for her life.

Angry Captain Nemo

What’s a parade without an oversized, disheveled Captain Nemo? Well, he was there in 1929 -- sans submarine, unfortunately.

Drunk Butler

This balloon from 1933, is of a butler. He may have had a few too many during his pre-gaming session.

Overexcited Dachshund

This pup from 1932 is waaaay too happy about being a part of the parade. Easy, buddy, easy.

Hungover Superman

Ever wanted to know what Superman would look like if he had too much to drink one night and then, in the morning, was inflated to the size of a four-story building? Neither did we. Of all the things to say about this image, we’ll just direct the reader to Superman’s pointy nipples. That should do the trick.
