How a Disneyland Mouse Infestation Inspired a ‘Jeopardy!’ Category

Jeopardy! has had all varieties of categories. When you have to think of clues for questions for nearly 40 years, you’re eventually going to cover everything. Eventually the show would hire former contestants to help write clues and questions. In the early days of the show, there was a category about vermin. One clue was about a mouse infestation at Disneyland, which inspired the rest of the category.
