Mickey's House Part 1
Join the gang as they embark on a wonderful journey through the house and the history behind the mouse who started it all.

You'll hear about the story behind some of the greatest curios in the main living room as well as a rousing telling of the history behind the origins of Mickey Mouse (once heard on the podcast Did You Know Disney). So grab a cool beverage, prop up your feet and enjoy the latest episode of The Backside of Water!
Bonus Live Episode - What Does Disneyland Mean To Me?
Our very first live recording!! That's right, back in March of 2020 we gathered in the Sipping Office (Trevor Kelly's majestic backyard Jungle Cruise Themed Tiki Bar) to let our hair down and share stories about what exactly Disneyland means to all of us. We thought that at this point, pretty much the middle point of our journey through the park, it would be great for us (and our wonderful friends who joined us for the live taping) to share just what we love about The Happiest Place On Earth. A very special thank you to Trevor and Jessica, all the artists who came out and shared their works with everyone, and all of our wonderful fans who bundled up and braved a cold, rainy night to have some fun with us. Without any further ado, enjoy our first (but certainly not our last) live episode of The Backside of Water!
Chip N' Dale's Treehouse
Wait, stop! Don't pass over this episode! I know you may not love Chip N' Dale's Treehouse, heck, you may not have known it even existed. But I assure you, you won't regret learning about the history of this little tree, nestled in the back corner of ToonTown. In this episode we explore the history of the two 'munks who call this tree home, including how they represent the many sides of Walt Disney. We also explore the vast connection the parks as a whole have to trees, as well as our human connection to trees as well.
So whether, you're a Disney history nut, or a cashew-al admirer of the parks, Chip 'N Dale's Treehouse is most certainly an attraction worth getting to know. Enjoy!
