Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle – The Most Bizarre Game Boy Franchise Ever
Bugs Bunny on the Game Boy was one of my favourites as a kid. As an adult, I tried to buy Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2 on the Game Boy. Here in the UK that’s impossible because Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2 never came out here. We got an identical game called Hugo. In some parts of Europe and Japan they got Mickey Mouse. It starts out strange and it just gets weirder. Did you know that Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny Ghostbusters and Garfield are all part of the same game series?
Here I explain my findings about the Bugs Bunny franchise to Raff over a coupla cans. The story of Bugs Bunny starts on the Japanese Nintendo Famicom with the Famicom game Who Framed Roger Rabbit? It spans 27 individual game releases, from the Famicom Disk System to the NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and eventually even the Game Boy Advance. 13 of those are Game Boy game releases. There’s nine different cartoon IP licenses in the Bugs Bunny franchise, some of them are absolutely mental.
If you ever wondered why Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2 was never released in the UK or why Mickey Mouse has a load of missing games in Europe, I hope you enjoy this video.

Came here from Kotaku, this video is amazing. Subbed.
I absolutely loved Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle as a kid. It was one of only three games I had on my Gameboy and it meant the world to me.
So you’re saying I should expect all the games remastered on one disc and digital for PC, iOS, Switch, PS4 and XBone next month?
OH boy, I think the AVGN job with Crazy Castle is not over yet.
I knew about all of this and still laughed my ass off. Great video!
And we laughed because they called the third Xbox the Xbox One
I'm kinda sad that Birthday Blowout didn't make the list somewhere, like Sesame Street Gang Blowout or Teletubby Birthday Crashers
I got lost track halfway through the video with all the ips
All I can think of is, "I hope the lads never hear about the wonderboy, JJ and Jeff, monster world, and adventure island games."
Believe it or not, there's actually even more to this. Kid Klown in Night Mayor World, the only one of these ports to star an original character, spawned its own series. The last game in the Kid Klown series is "The Bombing Islands" which was originally released on the PS1, but when it was ported to the N64, it was reskinned as "Charlie's Blast Territory" which isn't part of the Kid Klown series but is instead classified as a sequel to the game "Bombuzal." Later, "The Bombing Islands" would be remade as a mobile game which itself borrowed graphics from "Bombuzal."
There should be a Crazy Castle cinematic universe with all these characters.
This is wild. Great stuff. All these years I hadn't heard of this one.
jesus fucking christ
I absolutely loved Mickey Mouse Zauberstäbe when I was a kid 🙂
They created a multiverse. Now they only have to make a game where they all come together and restore the timeline. 😂
the ghostbusters theme playing during the Garfield game is where i lost it 😆
@3.11 That resigned tone "Who" had me in stiches. Awesome video lads, do more like this.
😂😂😂😂😂 im dead
There is a Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2, but maybe only in Germany?
Was just thinking about Bugs' time with Kemco (of all the companies) lately. I just learned Kemco also did Snoopy Silly Sports Spectacular (pizza tower races yay!) But in Japan the exact game with the same events starred beloved Disney Icon Donald Duck!
Thanks for reminding me that the original NES game existed. You just made someone one ebay $15 richer for something he had in a closet for 20 years.
Why you can't find 2 because CCll is Mickey 2 in japan and Hugo in P.A.L. Regions but in Japan there's a cart called Bugs Bunny C.C. Collection so you are born in Europe or you are a cute Asian that's why you can't find Crazy Castle 2
Fitting they used Bugs Bunny given what a Rabbit hole this series created.
I was OBSESSED with Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2 as a child. I ended up getting Crazy Castle 1-5 over the years and thinking the change to Woody was…. interesting. But this just answers and asks so many more questions I knew I had about the games. Awesome stuff !
I watch this every few months and show everyone.
OMG this is the best multiverse game ever 😦😦😦 Love it 😁💚💚
Best video on Youtube.
Is the same game: "Crazy Castle, Bugs Bunny" and "Mickey mouse" GB?
Honestly I have really good memories of bugs bunny crazy castle 1 on game boy I played it all the damn time
I rather Mickey Mouse version much more.
I enjoyed the NES Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle, but never knew it was a reskin. Makes sense now because of the Roger Rabbit Brick wall screen. Not to mention I always wondered why some enemies were green.
Anyone came here from Space Jam? 😉
I bought a Mickey Mouse game in the Netherlands, but looking at the video, it looks like Mickey Mouse 2, with the keys, but the box is the one you showed :/ I am so lost.
This is probably gonna get more views now that Crazy Castle’s in Space Jam: A New Legacy
While this is *crazy* and all, it's also worth noting this game is basically a Mappy ripoff.
I played the piss out of 2 on the Gameboy.
On The Real Ghostbusters cart the game code is DMG-L4-USA must be in reference to Mickey’s Labyrinth IV
Man, my younger sister had Crazy Castle 3 on GB back in the day, and I remember us (and our father!) playing the absolute shit out of it. My father even kept the passwords for the lategame stages in a phonebook. A friend of mine had Crazy Castle 1 and 2 on Gameboy, and another friend had Mickey Magic Wands. I remember playing that last one for a bit as a kid and noting how similar it seemed to Crazy Castle but just brushed it off. Little did I know!
I love the mechanic of the first two games it's so challenged. In these days, It should released as "Crazy Castle maker" which able to skin the game by the entire series characters.
I have seen all 3 versions of Crazy Castle 2 in Germany.
This has become one of my most watched videos on youtube it never gets old
Kemco is currently planning to release The Loud House Crazy Castle X for the Nintendo Switch which is based on The Loud House Movie and had a castle similar to the one from the film
The main character – Lincoln Loud
The girlfriend – Ronnie Anne Santiago
Here after AVGN's Garfield episode
ALERT: AVGN stole this video and copied it into his garfield video. Bollocks. Even uses the same style.
I think the information about Mickey Mouse V coming out only in Germany is not correct, I've seen picture of French, Spanish and English-language editions that seem legit, also I have an English-label legit european cartridge which seems to match other pictures of how it was published in Italy.
I had Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle it was my first game boy game, then my mom bought me a bottleg 125 in 1 cartridge and one of the games on that was an identical game starring Mickey Mouse instead and with Disney villains instead of Looney Tune ones. I was fascinated by this, as I was a fan of both characters when I was a kid, but them sharing the same game only not really was just really weird.
