Thumbs down I Think The Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Has Officially "Jumped The Shark!"

It’s safe to say Kanye West will be the biggest name performing at the 84th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and as such, we hope he’s planning a big surprise … like performing in front of a giant helium balloon of himself. (Don’t even pretend that wouldn’t be awesome.) The other celebs spending their day in front of 3.5 million spectators in Manhattan and more than 50 million viewers nationwide include, in alphabetical order: India.Arie, Big Time Rush, Betty Buckley, Ann Hampton Callaway, the casts of Broadway’s American Idiot, Elf, Memphis, Million Dollar Quartet, the Big Apple Circus, the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street, Miranda Cosgrove, Jimmy Fallon & The Roots, Gloriana, Michael Grimm, Arlo Guthrie, Keri Hilson, Eric Hutchinson, Juanes, Victoria Justice, Gladys Knight, Mannheim Steamroller, Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, Power Rangers Samurai, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Crystal Shawanda, and Jessica Simpson. New balloons will include: Diary of Wimpy Kid‘s Greg Heffley, Kung Fu Panda‘s Po, Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai and Kiki, Kool-Aid Man, and Virginia O’Hanlon, the 8-year-old who, in 1897, famously wrote a letter to The Sun newspaper in New York asking if there is a Santa Claus. (She’ll get to escort Santa Claus down the parade route.)

New floats will include: “Snow Queen,” on which Joan Rivers will assume the title role while Melissa Rivers and her son Cooper play the Snow Princess and Jack Frost (we’re not even joking); “Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure,” on which Dora the Explorer and her friends teach their pal Swiper about the true spirit of the holidays; “Elves Raise the Roof,” on which elves inspired by OfficeMax ElfYourself will bust a move; “Home Baked Goodness,” on which a giant cast iron stove top will overflow with “scrumptious cupcakes, gingerbread men and cookies” made with a pinch of Morton Salt (they best spice that float up); “Mount Rushmore’s American Pride,” on which the landscapes of South Dakota will be represented (doesn’t sound that exciting, but a creative marketing move by the state’s office of tourism), “On the Roll Again,” on which a family of ducks heads to a Homewood Suites By Hilton (kids do like ducks); and “Top Hat!”, on which a 12-foot tall top hat will serve to celebrate the Apollo Theater’s 75th Anniversary.

Will Macy's still have room for Snoopy, Garfield, or Woody Woodpecker?

I'm not a fan of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. I just don't care for the balloons. I do love the Rose Bowl parade!

I only watch the Macy's Parade for the floats. When the cast of the latest Broadway show starts singing and dancing, I usually flip the channel.

Looks like one of the few good things about it this year will be Victoria Justice.
