Stork choices

Is that a celebrity cameo on this Seaword billboard from 1994?

Actually, no.  It's not the Vlasic Stork, that avian deliveryman first employed in the 1960s to pitch "the pickle pregnant women crave...after all, who's a better pickle expert?"  There are similarities, obviously...the archetypal cartoon-stork's body, the little glasses, the bow tie.  But the SeaWorld stork's cap is different and he's wearing a vest (which the Vlasic stork, though you can't tell by the screen grab below, does not).

No, surprisingly, the SeaWorld stork looks a lot more like this fellow:

That's the stork delivering "Dumbo" back in 1941.
