Evel Knievel’s Son Suing Disney for Trademark Infringement

The son of famous stuntman Evel Knievel is suing Disney and Pixar over their Toy Story 4 character Duke Caboom.

Kelly Knievel, who had publicity rights to Evel Knievel since 1978, has accused the studios of financially gaining from a character they allegedly based on his father without seeking permission.

“Evel Knievel did not thrill millions, break his bones and spill his blood just so Disney could make a bunch of money,” the lawsuit filed in Las Vegas reads.

Through his K and K Promotions, Knievel is seeking unspecified damages totalling more than $300,000 (£236,000) in the federal trademark infringement lawsuit, which also alleges false endorsement and unjust enrichment.
