TOUCAN'S TRIVIA: This game along with Championship Baseball and I'm Hiding were offered for sale as 3rd party cartridges from Milton Bradley in addition to being sold through TI (this page is for the version sold through TI). The 3rd party releases came with different labels and cases than the cartridge pictured on this page. The 3 titles MB offered for sale independent of TI were the ones that required an MBX system in order to run, which helps explain why MB would have sold these as a 3rd party since they were responsible for manufacturing the actual MBX system. The 3rd party releases are extremely hard to come by, as only one MB release has been found to date and that being I'm Hiding.

TOUCAN'S TRIVIA: This game MUST be used with Milton Bradley's MBX System (an add-on for the TI-99/4A). The MBX allowed for the use of Voice Recognition, improved Speech Synthesis, a 360° Analog Joystick, and an Action-Input Keypad for video games designed for it. The reason for the MBX requirement is because the game requires the player to control the turtle's movements through either voice recognition or by keypad. Since there are many functions the turtle can perform, such as digging, eating, climbing, etc. the Action-Input Keypad is needed along with an overlay telling the player what button performs which action.
