Battle of OsTown Postcard/Loading Screen

OsTown is one of the most well known places in Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

It is Oswald's version of Mickey's Toontown of the Disneyland theme park, at the foothills of the imposing Mickeyjunk Mountain. Ortensia's, Clarabelle's, Mickey's and Pirate Moody's homes are located here. In the center is an Oswald fountain, which is now pouring with thinner. Here, who you will come across is Animatronic Goofy. He will ask you if you will find his spare parts. This is also where Gremlin Prescott can be found. If you accept, you will find them in Tomorrow City.

Mickey's Home

Mickey's house

OsTown is the gateway to get to Mickeyjunk Mountain (where Oswald the Lucky Rabbit exiled himself). To open the bridge to Mickeyjunk Mountain you need to free Gremlin Prescott from the safe (by thinning the plank or by painting Moody's house). Then you need to get Prescott his wrench.

The Telephone in Mickey's house (next to Moody's) has the wrench. You can either let Prescott go in and take it from him, which in the process the Telephone is dismantled, or accept the quest to restore the telephone lines in OsTown. By doing the quest, you can unlock another telephone quest in Mickeyjunk Mountain.

To restore the telephone lines, you need to paint in the four fuse boxes. They are located:

  • On the side of Mickey's house
  • The roof of the Gag Factory
  • Underneath the garden of the Clarabelle Cow's house. Thin out the garden out to find a big hole full of e-tickets and the fusebox.
  • The ledge to the left of the Gag Factory. Thin out the wall to find a hidden cave with e-tickets and the fourth fusebox.

After Prescott has regained his wrench, he will lower the bridge and reveal the Projector Screen to Mickeyjunk Mountain.

You can also get several Power Sparks in town. Thin out the Gag Factory for Abner (who looks similar to Goofy) in front of the factory to get one. A second one is on Mickey's roof, while a third one can be found on top of the Gag Factory, hidden under the chimney. Gilda will appear later on the bridge to Mickeyjunk Mountain, who will offer you a race (again). If you succeeded, she will give you a Power Spark. There is also a glitch, where if you tap the A Button as fast as possible, after completing a race, she will give you the challenge again. So if you return her Axe, and take the two races, including the glitch race, you can obtain a whopping three Power Sparks from Gilda in Ostown alone.

Later, after you get a gear in Bog Easy, you will be able to get Moody to raise Donald's tugboat, which has sank in the thinner river.

Karma Music

  • Neutral: The use of light, gentle instruments alongside deeper string sections shows Ostown to be a melancholy place, where the effects of the thinner are most visible in stark contrast with the cheerful toon neighbourhood. 
  • Paint: The soft sounds from the Neutral version are isolated and built upon to give an idea of what Ostown once was. It is much more innocent, bearing toy-like sounds comparable to the feel presented by Mickeyjunk Mountain. 
  • Thinner: Deep woodwind and shrill string sections paint Ostown as a truly hopeless place. Otherwise triumphant sound brass sections portray the area as post-apocalyptic, devoid of color and life. 

In Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Ostown1

OsTown as it appears in Epic Mickey 2.

OsTown returns as a hub world with certain changes; there is now a Train Station that can transfer you to Mean Street South, Bog Easy, or Ventureland (though you must repair the stations first in order to do so). Transportation to Mickeyjunk Mountain, however, is no longer accessible due to the earthquake damaging the mountain; it's deemed too dangerous to go to Mickeyjunk.

When you first arrive at OsTown, Gremlin Prescott will quickly hide something from Mickey, Oswald and Gus in a cutscene. Here, he'll explain that the D.E.C. to Rainbow Falls is down a Thinner sinkhole, and that Gremlin Jamface gave Goofy some pumps, but it would take too long to process them. He showed Goofy how to do the job much quicker, though as evident by Goofy's holler, it turns out that something went wrong. Once Goofy hands Mickey the Fairy Sketch, Mickey is given the choice to either repair the pumps Goofy/Jamface's way (by repairing all 3 pumps) or Prescott's way (by supercharging one pump). Either way will reward you with a pin, but Prescott's way will damage the fountain permanently. You can return later to find many quests from the residents: Moody, Clarabelle, Ortensia, and Goofy. A Green Gremlin will also take over Prescott's job in the Gag Factory after a while, and he will require Scrap Metal to fix up OsTown.

Trivia

  • In an interview, Warren Spector said that OsTown would have an even bigger role in Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. However, due to time constraints, this turned out not to be the case, as you are only required to enter OsTown once during the whole game in order to reach Rainbow Caverns via the D.E.C.. The other missions in OsTown are small sidequests.
  • Compared to other current Toontown lands in Disney parks, Ostown is very small, or at least has very few buildings.
  • It is hinted that Mickey's House in Ostown was originally Oswald's home, before he left for Mickeyjunk.
