Bonkers (SNES) Playthrough – NintendoComplete

A playthrough of Capcom’s 1994 license-based platformer for the Super Nintendo, Bonkers.

Played through all stages and collected all of the heart containers.

I used to love the show Bonkers when I was a kid. My sister and I would watch it everyday after school, and that stupid theme song would get permanently lodged in our heads (to the point that we’d get yelled at by our dad during dinnertime for saying “Bonkers” in that weird burpy sounding voice over and over).

For those that don’t remember, it was about “Bonkers D. Bobcat” (wow Disney, super creative there), a bobcat police officer that always meant well and screwed up everything for his partner, Det. Lucky Piquel, who resented him at every turn. It usually played out like some kind of kid’s version of the interplay between Roger Rabbit and Eddie Valiant.

The game itself is pretty typical Capcom fare. It looks and sounds pretty nice, and has lots of fan service throughout – I was a huge fan of the secret room that had Donald and Mickey chillin’ while you grabbed a 1-up. It tasks Bonkers with finding Toontown’s treasures – the hat from Fantasia, Ariel’s voice from The Little Mermaid, and the lamp from Aladdin. The game play feels like a combination of the Mickey’s Magical Quest series and Buster Busts Loose – it’s hop and bop, but you also have a dash mechanic that allows you to plow through obstacles and enemies.

I certainly liked the game back then because of my love for the show, but now? I’m not so sure. It’s still a nice, wholesome, polished platformer, but it doesn’t really feel like it adds much to the games that came before it. It’s fairly formulaic, but still – if you like these types of games, and you’re a fan of Disney’s 90s cartoon line-up, you really can’t go wrong.

I mean, hey – rehash or not, there’s no denying Capcom made quality games, and there’s no denying people loved them. Just look at Mega Man!

So, let’s go Bonkers! Yeah, totally nuts! Bonkers, no ifs, ands, or buts!

And this is for a request – sorry I don’t remember and can’t now find who requested it, but if you see this – here you go! 🙂

  1. Finally got this one in the collection, the last Capcom/Disney game I needed. Plays a lot like the Magical Quest games, as well as SNES Aladdin, but you know what, that's not a bad thing at all, the quality is there.

  2. back when game quality meant something ….back than 9 out of 10 games were great and replayable……today u might get 1 out of 20 that are decent… that is sad lol

  3. Never watched the Bonkers show but I loved Raw Toonage… This really reminds me of Tiny Toons on SNES

  4. 11:32,well no DUH! The guy's been kicked out of the job,his livelihood which is how he is like this to begin with.

  5. this game is awesome. way better than goof troop in my opinion. not only should this game have appeared in the final best games list of Nintendo Power, but this game also brings back so many memories of 2008.

  6. I remember this game – came out in late 1994 but due to it being released with a deluge of other SNES games, I didn't play it until much later. It's the last Capcom Disney game released in the US isn't it?

  7. could you do play through of Walt Disneys quest world magical racing tour on the PS1 or gameboy color and it has chip and dale and the are dressed same as the are chip and dale rescue rangers show.

  8. this might not be true but I read on the wiki pedai that the bonkers show had 60 episode and ran for 4 season ( that's what I read and some day I hope the reals it on DVD and I'm going to try and find the only VHS release and if I do I will archive it to my PC

  9. As with most of disney SNES games, this one looks and sounds pretty good. I don't remember too much about the cartoon though

  10. Bonkers, the long lost relic of Raw Toonage, gets a pretty fair Capcom SNES platformer that pays a lot of fan-service to Disney worshippers. If that sounds like you, then, "Let's go, Bonkers! Yeah, totally nuts!"
