Knott’s Berry Farm: Did You Know #2


The Catawampus was born in the 1930s in a corral near the Knott Volcano. Walter Knott created it to bring customers to Knott’s Berry Farm and keep them occupied as they waited hours for the dinner service. When Ghost Town made its debut in 1941, he moved to the very back corner of Main Street. The critter has lasted so long that he had to undergo a couple of surgeries and repairs to keep him looking young. The Catawampus now lives happily under the windmill at the Lively Barn. If you go and visit him, keep your eyes peeled for the Kittywampus. If you listen, they might even Moo at you if you stay long enough.

Have you ever heard of the Catwampus?
