AVGN: Wally Bear and the NO! Gang

Mike Matei / September 8th, 2006

Watch this video on Youtube

Episode notes by Mike Matei:
– For episode 8 the Nerd reviews Wally Bear and the NO! Gang (NES)
– Other than Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, so far most of the games reviewed were well known. Now we started to delve into the more obscure NES titles.
– Later on for the AVGN Volume 1 DVD release a new scene was added where the Nerd calls the Wally Bear hotline!

    I believe this is the shortest episode?

  • May 9, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Yeah I believe this is the shortest episode, short and sweet. I love the rant about the “Press here” label. I also like how a few times he has endorsed saying no to drugs, he’s a smart guy.

    3:10 long at ScrewAttack and 3:48 long on YouTube. claims that this is the shortest AGVN episode under trivia, it also claims this is Jame’s first unlicensed game review.

    Alright. The first episode where James reviews an unofficial NES game, and it’s all up-hill from there.

    The premise of this whole game just makes me wanna puke.

    I’ve seen “Cartoon All-Stars To the Rescue” when I was in 3rd Grade (1995), and it thankfully kept me away from drugs and alchohol, ever to this day.

    I love the end of the DVD edition of this episode. Creepy as Hell.

    Someone needs to make a 2d sidescroller that Takes Wally Bear and puts him into the NARC world.

    Whoa, when did that part about the hotline get added? That wasn’t there the last few times I watched this! Makes it even creepier.

    Putting sunglasses on Wally instantly means he’s cool… Actually, the more I see of these “let’s make a character the kids will think is cool” characters, the more the sunglasses make them seem utterly freaking phony.

    • January 23, 2012 at 7:50 pm

      Its funny how sunglasses are sort of the generic symbol to mark something as cool, especially in the late 80’s – mid 90’s. You know who else wears sunglasses, people who are trying to hide their bloodshot pot-smoked eyes.

    Oh how tired I am of those stupid spam messages filling up the whole site. . . How’d they find Cinemassacre, anyway?

    I just read on wikipedia that Gamepro gave this 5 out of 5 in it’s 1992 issue.


    • January 23, 2012 at 7:47 pm

      @Lanlost The company that made this game probably gave them a big bag of weed in exchange for that glowing review.

    Well, I called the number. Wally Bear has been exorcised. It’s now a stuffy-nosed guy saying, “The number you have reached is not in service.” This leads me to believe that the answering machine itself was haunted, not the hotline. Attempts to remove the machine met with failure and gore. It could only be reprogrammed. In fact, we may be looking at a Videodrome type situation, and everyone who calls that hotline, regardless of the message, will shortly die of a brain tumour.

    The game didn’t look as bad as he said though, at least it was playable, it just wasn’t fun for him, but I’m pretty sure it’s meant for young kids not those who are experienced gamers and know like us when a game just sucks…like duke nukem forever, fucking worst piece of shit I’ve played in years! Fuck duke nukem forever I hate that game, those who like it are fucking shit heads!

    The ending being added on was so great! Totally rewarding to those of us who keep coming back for repeat views. I have watched the top 5 movies about making movies video more than any other video. Anyway just a thank-you!

    oh awesome! What is the region code ie +?? 5555 5555 I’d pay to hear that recording.

    That was creepy, with the basement and low music. Wally sounded like some crazy clown torturing you.

  • January 23, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Make you wonder who is the one paying the bill to keep that hotline active. Since its an anti-drug thing its probably paid by some government funding in some round about way, which means that some of those tax dollars are being used to keep stupid shit like that going.

    You can’t hit the sticker putting it INTO the NES, but it’s spot on accurate for taking it out.

    lol this game looks like some community service some drug dealing game designer had to go through as a part of his trial, it just looks like one of those game someone made without apparently giving a fuck about the power the games had back than and more focusing on the fact he can just get on with it, clear it off his agenda real quick and still get lots of sales because nobody expected people to release half assed games, at least probably nobody got mislead by the lack of information we got today with internet, because game producers apparently didn’t even give enough of a fuck to give their games good names

    Was this game licensed? If so, HOW???

    At the title screen, it looks like his face is schloping off.

    Wally is fully dressed & so is his aunt, but his uncle has no pants.

    Visually it looks like this Beethoven game Paw & Pushing up Roses reviewed.

    I love the hotline ending.

    What happened to the hotline ending? I had a real bad craving to see that.

    This game should not have ever been made. To think that people who were on drugs would make a video game teaching kids how to stay off drugs is just absolutely nuts.

    I think the Wally Bear hotline is housed in the same location as UVB-76.

    “You’d rather listen to your only infant child choking to death”

    I wonder if James would say something like that since becoming a father?

  • Aaron1375

    Just saw you call that hotline, that is fucking insane that it still works and never turned into an adult party line number over the years.

  • fcabanski

    I tried the number. It rang and rang. There was no answer.
