Super Mario World: Barrel of Yoshis



Barrel of Monkeys5Arrow R Mario

Super Mario World: Barrel of Yoshis is a Mario-themed game based on Barrel of Monkeys, featuring a green Pipe instead of a barrel and Mario riding Yoshis instead of monkeys. The curved arms of amonkeys are replaced with Yoshi's tongue and tail, making them look slightly different from the game, sporting a vry long tail. Mario is depicted pointing his finger, just like in the original game while Yoshi uses his tongue.


To produce Barrel of Yoshis, being basically just an alternate version of Barrel of Monkeys, is very likely that Nintendo needed an authorization from the original game's company Milton Bradley, altough this is not confirmed.
