Laugh-O-Gram Studio was a film studio located on the second floor of the McConahay Building at 1127 East 31st in Kansas City, Missouri.

The studio played a role in the early years of animation: it was home to many of the pioneers of animation, brought there by Walt Disney, and is said to be the place to have provided Disney with the inspiration to create Mickey Mouse.

The studio building had fallen to ruin by 2004 at the time the photo was taken and efforts were being made to restore it. The Disney family had promised $450,000 in matching funds for the restoration. By 2009, the exterior of the building had been restored, with all the butresses removed, etc., but it was left looking like an abandoned, boarded up warehouse. An almost illegible sign adorned the exterior wall saying, "Thank you, Walt Disney, Inc."
