Born in Chicago, Walt Disney and his family moved to Kansas City when he was nine years old.
Why did the Disney family have to move to Kansas City in 1911?
In 1908 Herbert and Raymond decided they had had enough of farming, and of their father’s insistence that they use any extra money they could earn to help support the family. Now 16 and 18 — grown men by the standards of the time — they departed for better times in Chicago.
Why is the Kansas City Mickey?
Mickey’s nickname, “Kansas City Mickey”, might be a reference to Mickey’s creator, Walt Disney living in Kansas City. The Title Episode plays the Cave of Crystal Skull, an Indiana Jones movie where the episode is based.
