The Musical Farmer is a minigame available through the Classic Kingdom in Kingdom Hearts Union χ and Kingdom Hearts III. In the game, Sora changes pipes in order to help Mickey and Minnie collect eggs from six chickens.
The Musical Farmer is based on Walt Disney’s 1932 animated short "Musical Farmer".
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The objective is to guide Sora in switching two sections of connecting pipes in order to direct eggs from six chickens into one of three boxes. Each box can hold up to six eggs. Once the box is full (or at any point before then), Sora can empty the box by giving the eggs to either Mickey (on the right side of the screen) or Minnie (on the left side of the screen). The box in the middle can only be switched with either of the outer two boxes. Not switching the pipe or emptying the boxes in time will cause an egg to break; the game is over if Sora breaks three eggs. After getting a certain amount of eggs, you move on to the next level, where the eggs move through the pipes faster, requiring a faster response time.
The Musical Farmer was one of the games introduced in Classic Kingdom in Kingdom Hearts Union χ, and was part of the challenge to receive the Starlight Keyblade for Kingdom Hearts III. In order to qualify, one must achieve a cumulative score of 5000 in the minigame.
Origin[edit | edit source]
"The Musical Farmer" is an animated short released on June 9, 1932 as part of the Mickey Mouse series of cartoons. In the cartoon, one of Mickey's hens lays an egg, and the whole farm begins to celebrate. This ends with Mickey gathering everyone for a photograph.
