Kansas City Disney Studio Vaporware Cont'd

Butch Rigby has been bothering people about this project for at least 20 years . . . It's never going to happen but every 10 months some poor newsie is forced to recycle the dream of converting nearly worthless urban property into a tribute to an alleged Nazi sympathizer and anti-union cartoon maker.

Here's the latest installment that's mostly sponsored by the Kansas City Downtown Council and dutifully written up one of the many local journalists forced to move from dead-tree media to PR . . .

New Strategy Hopes to Reanimate Disney Laugh-O-Gram Building

By Kevin Collison Backers of the effort to reanimate the historic Laugh-O-Gram building where Walt Disney got his start a century ago believe they've finally got a winning strategy to complete the languishing project.

But yet it's O.K. to glorify ANTIFA who are nazi sympathizers and BLM who is racist and both promote anti American domestic terrorism. Little hypocritical don't you think?

Dude you could take a story about kittens and turn it into a platform for your right-wing agenda.

Disney hated jews.
They sure swooped in after he croaked and picked the Disney carcass.

Mickey Mouse was always overrated.

Disney was a 1000 times better company after Walt was gone. Stock price for investors proves it.

Come on, @9:04 - just because Grandma gave you one share of Disney common for Christmas back in the days of paper Stock Certificates (with all the cute cartoon characters on the logo), that does NOT make you an "investor"!

Butch is and always has been a crook, he won’t spend one dime on the property himself, he’s collected hundreds of thousands of dollars for the building and all he has to show for it is cute little paintings on front of the building. He’s living large off of the money he got through donations and such. FUCK BUTCH!

Please put the building on a giant set of trucks and move it to a safe part of town. Like a famous movie "voice of God" once said, "Move it and they will come."

Butch is an attorney. They are a different breed. They are bred to mostly think of themselves first and have others do things for THEM. That said, his wife Karen is smoking hot and I am baffled how he ever got a woman so beautiful. If she is ever single again I want a crack at her!

He dumped his first wife after she put on a few pounds. Sweet woman. She deserved better. Looks like more than a few know Butch...?

Butch's new wife is tiny, like 90 lbs at most. She is a hot girl, well she is probably 45, not really a girl. But she looks very young and is smart, a CPA I think. Thats the best combo in a woman - smart and a "spinner". Bet she can figure out alot of new positions and is really fun! She loves shoes!

If Butch would ever visit London or Paris he would understand the 90 year old brick buildings he is trying to save in KC are rubbish. There are beautiful buildings hundreds of years old in europe, made by masters, not am untrained drunk bricklayer from Kansas. There are very few real quality buildings in KC. The Nelson is a worthy candidate to save for a few hundred years. But Disney stuff? No way. I guess Butch has never travelled outside the midwest. So things here look really cool to him. He is kind of a cool-kat guy. LOL!

In 400 years that building will be a famous landmark. Right now its really nothing. Just cover it over completely with dirt for 400 years and let it sit.
