When Mickey's Toontown opened, it was given this fictional backstory:
- Choosing to live away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, Mickey Mouse moved to a Toon suburb in a hidden part of Anaheim in the 1930s, keeping in touch with his humble Midwestern roots. His friends followed suit and built their own houses nearby. When Walt Disney was looking for a location to build Disneyland, Mickey pointed him towards a large orange grove nearby for him to build his park.
- When the park opened, Mickey and his friends traveled between their Toontown homes and Disneyland to meet the countless guests that visited the park. Eventually, in 1993, Mickey and his fellow Toontown residents decided to open their hometown to the public for visitors, digging a tunnel through the berm.
Since 1993, Mickey's Toontown (or a fictional version thereof, possibly meant to be the original city from Who Framed Roger Rabbit) has been featured as the hometown for Mickey and Friends in various media including television shows, films and video games (however, comic book stories still depict Mickey and Goofy as residents of Mouseton and Donald living in Duckburg). The area was also the inspiration for the Kingdom Hearts series' world Disney Town (first featured in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep) and OsTown in the Epic Mickey series.
