The 1930 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade certainly looked a little odd compared to the floats we see today. The Bowery Boys have now taken a stroll down memory lane, recalling some of the weirdest balloons to fly above Broadway in history. Above are a couple of old-timers, a Pinocchio from 1935 with a 44-foot nose, and a 1941 fish, which they call "artistic and graceful."

Check out the new and old guard get inflated tonight; and here's a map of the route for tomorrow.
