There’s A Cartoon Parody Of Namco Characters Working At Namco Bandai

By Spencer . June 24, 2013 . 7:19pm

Shiftylook, the division in Namco Bandai that revived Bravoman and Wonder Momo, is making a Segagaga level parody using Mappy. Mappy is a mouse policeman who was the star of his own arcade game with cats and trampoline floors.


In the upcoming Mappy cartoon, Mappy is a security guard that works at Nyamco (Nyamco is also a character in Mappy) as a security guard. Dig Dug is also in the Mappy cartoon along with other Namco characters like the Prince of All Cosmos that works as a janitor.


Something you may not realize is the cat-like Nyamco offices is pretty much what the actual Namco Bandai headquarters in Shinagawa Seaside looks like.

    I sincerely hope this would mean more re-imaginings of classic Namdai chars. I heard via NxC.

  • “Dear Bravoman. I think you’re cool! But rude.”

    Nice jab at Bravoman’s VA Rob Paulsen voicing a certain Ninja Turtles back in the 80’s. >XD

    • Spirit Macardi

      That’s nothing. In one episode you can clearly see the WB water tower in the background x3

      • Now, that’s double homage/jab. The show creators must have a lot of fun planning this series. :p

        • Spirit Macardi

          I’m waiting for them to give some recognition to Dee Bradley Baker’s characters though. Like maybe have Anti-Bravoman say “Henshin a go-go baby!” x3

          • Uso Ewin

            Not to mention the bus to Sylvarant

  • Spirit Macardi

    This looks funnier and more clever than that Pac-Man cartoon, and it’s clearly being made at not even a fraction of that show’s budget.

    I’m still waiting for ShiftyLook to announce when the next season of the Klonoa comic is going to start though.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Did I just see general lee there?

  • popyea

    I love mappy. God knows why though.

  • Brandonmkii

    Oh wow, that Mappy thing’s written and directed by Scott Kurtz. No wonder it was actually funny.

  • Darkbeat

    There’s a new Wonder Momo?! Please elaborate!

  • When can we expect characters from Tales Of and Super Robot Wars OG showing up? Maybe not, but it would be cool since they’re Namco Bandai character as well.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I lol’ed

  • Wsan’t really feeling the Bravoman shorts, but I gotta say I’m glad I stuck around for the end, the Mappy/Dig Dug one was great

  • ChiffonCake

    I haven’t checked this properly yet, but… it really looks like the blue guy in the thumbnail was drawn by Kris Straub…

  • NRool

    The Bravoman shorts were … eh, not up my street.
    But like somebody above said, I am SO looking forward to Mappy
