Trivia

The voices in the game are not real speech, but rather a looping of voice-like sounds when text bubbles were displayed. This artistic choice was made due to memory limitations on the Nintendo 64 cartridges. See more »

Goofs

In the "Winter" season of Click Clock Wood, Mumbo Jumbo leaves a note in his hut saying he's gone on vacation because he hates the cold. Yet, a few levels earlier in Freezee Peak (a snow world), Mumbo is seen occupying his hut to give Banjo a transformation. See more »

Crazy Credits

The credits are read off one at a time by different characters, each giving them odd job titles and nicknames such as "Deputy keyboard tapper Graham 'Snippet' Smith" See more »

So silly... so great
7 December 2004 | by (Westland, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This game has to be one of my favorites. I was instantly hooked to the strangely-entertaining story, goofy characters, assortment of levels, music, graphics and control (which are surprisingly good for N64), and difficulty. Everything from Gobi's Valley to Freezeezy Peak (sp?), from Mad Monster Mansion to Click Clock Wood, from Treasure Trove Cove to Grunty's Furnace Fun. I guarantee at least one of the tunes to get stuck in your head for good, especially Gruntilda's Lair. It may look just like your average kid's game, but it is actually quite hard to beat, since you must collect about 99.9% of all items, which is no small task. If you are bored and have a loony sense of humor, check this game out and its sequel, Banjo-Tooie. Rare Ware makes great games.
