Here is the lineup used for the 65th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which took place in 1991 and was hosted by Willard Scott and Katie Couric.


Macy's pulled off another successful parade in 1991, making sure it was their most exciting yet! Babar the Elephant was brought to life in a larger-than-life balloon unit, making his first appearance in the Parade in over fifty years. In addition, Macy's brought back four classic balloons not seen in years, some dating back to the 1960s. Wind provided a challenge to the balloon handlers, but only Kermit the Frog was wounded.

On the performer side of things, celebrities such as Ben Vereen, Kelsey Grammer, and Miss America 1992 victor Carolyn Sapp were brought in to celebrate the 65th occurrence of the Parade. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were invited to the Parade for the second time, and Spider-Man and the Pink Panther joined their balloon counterparts in the march down Broadway. Once again, Santa Claus arrived to bring the start of the holiday season.
