Very early in the events of Space Jam: New Legacy, a young LeBron James finds himself at a low point in his fledgling basketball career: playing The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle on an original Game Boy in 1998. Young LeBron, distracted by the background of a Bugs Bunny game, makes a winning shot at the game and learns a hard life lesson.
It’s a great guest for the Game Boy, a game that seems to already have The authenticity of the classic game is misunderstood by more than a few people. Viewers are crying that Game Boy played here no full color graphics capabilities, though that’s not what the movie really wants to happen. (The Game Boy also doesn’t seem to be turned on in some scenes, which is definitely a failure.)
That aside, this is a great opportunity to learn about the wild history of the Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle video game series, which, if you didn’t know, involves a twist of the animated IP that competes with Space Jam is second in terms of complexity.
But let’s dive into the scene and why some are confused.
LeBron’s teammate and youngster, Malik, gave him an original Game Boy as a turn-around present. Malik got an upgrade – a “new color”, which probably means a new Game Boy Color – so LeBron gets his deprecated technology. However, despite its monochrome black and green screen, lil’ LeBron is so captivating that its antiquated graphics The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle became more colorful, detailed and accurately represented in his mind.
Bugs Bunny gets inside LeBron’s head in a way that disrupts the child’s concentration, so much so that Coach C (Cordby Wood Harris), essentially telling Young LeBron he needed to quit video games if he wanted to excel at basketball. The Game Boy ended up in the trash, which seems like an extreme measure. What’s up with paying it forward, LeBron?
Accuracy concerns aside – yes, the full-color graphic display film occurred in LeBron’s mind, and no, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle cartridge in slot – Space Jam: New LegacyThe Nintendo guest is a starting point to learn more about the Crazy Castle series. So that’s what the rest of this story is about.
The game in the movie is the Game Boy version of the identically named NES/Famicom title: The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle. Yes, the game’s splash screen simply reads “Bugs Bunny,” but the game’s boxy display of the full title, including “The,” is completely unnecessary.
Original The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle for the NES is a remake of Who framed Roger Rabbit licensed game (titled Roger Rabbit) from Japan developed by Kemco. With slight twist, however, the Game Boy version of that game was based on the Japanese Mickey Mouse game titled Mickey Mouse.
Next part, The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2 for Game Boy, also based on Mickey Mouse 2. However, in Europe, Mickey Mouse 2 has been remade as a game based on Danish interactive TV show Hugo, which I have not been exposed to until today.
Then the Crazy Castle character licensing story gets weird. Kemco’s Japanese Famicom released Mickey Mouse 3 become Kid Klown in Night Mayor World when it launched the NES in North America. Mickey Mouse 4 It was later turned into a Real Ghostbusters game for the Game Boy in North America and also Garfield Labyrinth – yes, starring a lazy, lasagna-loving cartoon cat – in Europe. Mickey Mouse 5, however, is a worldwide Mickey Mouse game!
Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 3 (without “The” this time) turn based on Soreyuke!! Kid: Go! Go! Kid, the sequel to Kid Klown in Night Mayor World. Soreyuke!! Kid: Go! Go! Kid (and Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 3) was a Game Boy exclusive, but the guys at Kemco re-released it for the Game Boy Color. In a spindle, Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 4 merely Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 4 everywhere.
In a final puzzling twist, the fifth Crazy Castle game stars Woody Woodpecker (!), as Kemco gains licensing rights to Universal Studios properties.
