See what the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade looked like once upon a time! To celebrate the parade this year, we dug into the Daily News photo archives to find shots of some long-since-extinct balloon characters - like this 1931 dragon.

The wife and I started a toy company... As we worked through the morning on the website and turkey, I commented to her that if our mascot became a parade balloon we would be no longer a 99 percenter! |;)
