Wonder if it meant to say state of Kansas leading to further confusion that people don't know there is a Kansas City in Missouri

I've heard "City of X" before when referring to cities named after their state, but I've never really heard it before when referring to KC, probably because we're (mostly) in Missouri. To me, it was written by someone that just assumed KC = Kansas.

The correct way to refer to KC by using the city of x convention would be "City of Kansas City", which sounds dumb. City council should refer to itself as Kansas City City Council. The census actual refers to KC as "Kansas City city". The creaters of the show probably did know better and just didn't care, they just did what sounded best. The description of the pilot doesnt matter anyway, the description of the show would be different.

That's actually the official corporate name in the city charter.

ARTICLE I. CORPORATE NAME, POWERS AND BOUNDARIES
Sec. 101. Incorporation, Name and Boundaries.
The inhabitants of the City of Kansas City, within the corporate limits as now established or as hereafter established in the manner then provided by law, shall continue to be a municipal body politic and corporate in perpetuity under the name of the City of Kansas City.

Schools should teach the 50 largest cities, rather than the 50 states. Then we can change our name to "Kansas" and the when residents of Nowhere, Kansas say they are from the state of Kansas, people will say "oh, you must go to the boulevard brewery all the time!" / "How's the streetcar?" / "What's it like living near a river?" etc.
