Pop disney question? Why are the lights called osborn lights???

Very good question. If you don't mind I'd like to add a follow up question to yours. Did you know there is a Halloween Cat hidden every year in the Osborne Lights display? Do you know why?

When Disney picked up the lights from the Osborne family a purple Halloween Cat from the Osborne Halloween light display was mistakenly taken with the Christmas lights. When the display was originally set up at Disney the cat was there so they used it not knowing it was there by accident. So now every year when setting up the display they hide the Halloween cat in the light display for people to try and find. I understand this year it is well hidden. This is all from memory but basically the story I heard/read. The Festival of Lights display is a must see this time of year! - jacdanfan  8088.3 #4 5:16AM

Because Jennings Osborne put them up for his daughter, the neighbors complained of the "nuisance". Disney offered to purchase the display for several years, however must have extended the contract because the are still around - Thankfully - Betsyboo  21.5 #153 4:55AM
From Disney's website blog: The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights started modestly in Arkansas as a single home's annual display. Every year, Jennings Osborne and his family set up an elaborate collection of holiday lights and over the years, the collection of lights grew, and grew... and grew! In 1995, the Osborne family decided to share their magic with the world, and Walt Disney World Resort happily offered to become the new permanent home for this exceptional exhibition of holiday cheer. - DizneyGirl  681.7 #7 4:57AM
That's great info! But why the cat? - Schramke  471.1 #16 5:08AM
Sorry Schramke, forgot that part, :) - DizneyGirl  681.7 #7 5:13AM
From hiddenmickeyguy.com: It seems that when Mr. Osborne shipped his lights to WDW, an outline of a cat was mixed in with the regular lights. Each year, the Cast Members hide this cat in a different place along the Streets of America. - DizneyGirl  681.7 #7 5:12AM

I believe the Osborne Family used to put up these light on their property in Arkansas, but the neighbors kept complaining. They were asked not to have so many lights. They ended up giving them to WDW. - ally  509.2 #11 5:23AM
So neat I never knew about the cat! - justGoofin  138.2 #55 6:36AM

I think I'm too dumb to figure this game out! I have no idea what's going on. I throw for dogs and sometimes the miners fall over and sometimes they don't. Then it will randomly say hit the goat, which I do and nothing happens. I've tried playing for literally an hour hoping I would catch on and I'm not gettin it. Can someone far more intelligent then I am give me a hint as to what is supposed to be happeneing? 😃 - BellesLibrary  403.0 #500 9:39PM
I'm right there with you. I can't seem to figure out the game either. I do the exact same thing as you. Someone please explain the object of this game. I'm about to delete it.  - Kfeatherer  347.6 #618 6:26AM
I'm completely hopeless at this. I think I hit the goat once and still don't know how - montanapixies  43.4 #4673 12:42PM
