Back when "midget" wasn't considered a slur, and Native American characters could literally be built with red skin. Notably, though, even all those years before minifigs, the mini-humans in the displays are yellow.

The only ride is a train, and the idea that toy boats can be remotely moved through water is presented as a miracle. You gotta love the English-accented narration - in the generations of yesteryear, newscasters could afford to be only vaguely clued in to the intricacies of children's toys, and discuss Legoland like some strange wildlife habitat on a nature program.
