Disneyland introduced the popcorn people back in 1955. The original theme park popcorn wagons had a very interesting history. The were originally called “The Cretors” named after C. Cretors & Co. This company was founded all the way back in 1855 and was known for their popcorn carts and clown dolls. Over time, the clowns that came along with the carts were given costumes to link the Disneyland areas where you’ll find them.
