13 Times the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Went Wrong


Nobody watches the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the train wrecks (unless you’re a complete jerk), but every once in a while we get one. The “Hollywood Reporter” put together a list of 13 times the parade WENT WRONG. Here are a few examples:

  1. Mighty Mouse goes down: The balloon hit a street sign and crumpled to the ground in 1956.
  1. Superman loses an arm: During the 1985 parade, One of Superman’s arms snagged on a tree branch and was torn off.
  1. The Cat in the Hat puts a woman in a coma: During a windy 1997 parade, the Cat in the Hat struck a lamppost, which fell over and fractured a woman’s skull. She was in a coma for a month.
