Hello Kitty Big Fun Deluxe is an educational game released in 1994 by Big Top Productions.

Unused Graphics


A graphic from the Stew Story mode of the Big Fun Storymaking activity. It is internally called ScreenCapture, indicating that it is a screenshot taken during development. Overall, it's very similar to the in-game scene that it depicts, with only a few minor differences. In-game, the "Read" icon at the top depicts a person's face instead of just a mouth, and the text bubble's size and shape was adjusted as well. The print icon was also shifted to the left slightly, and the basket was changed to a lighter brown.


An early version or possibly a mock up of the fifth page in Stew Story.


A very simple placeholder for the end screen of Stew Story.

The Big Fun Piano and Big Fun Numbers activities have unused variations of arrow buttons, presumably intended to have been used when the buttons are clicked on. However, no graphical changes occur when clicking on the arrows in-game.


A graphic internally named Camera.On from the Big Fun Art activity. The camera button is used to save the player's picture. Other similar buttons in this activity are usually highlighted blue like this when clicked on. However, when the camera button is clicked on, it plays a short flashing animation, and then the scrapbook button is highlighted afterwards since the scrapbook opens automatically after saving a picture. Thus the camera button is never highlighted since the transition from the flashing animation to the scrapbook is immediate.


A graphic internally named badPalette from Big Fun Art. In-game, columns of icons like this one are used for stamps that the player can place on the canvas. This appears to be an early sketch or possibly just a placeholder for this feature. In-game, the graphic most similar to this one has the same size, but it features the numbers 0 through 5 as opposed to 1 through 6, and the numbers all have black outlines with a white or colored fill instead of being entirely black.


Big Fun Art also has graphics for undo buttons. This indicates that an undo feature would've originally been included, but it was apparently scrapped as there is no reference to it in-game.

Unused Sounds

A sound effect intended for the aforementioned scrapped undo feature from Big Fun Art.

Development-Related Text

The file for Big Fun Art includes a portion of text internally referred to as DISABLED CODE. As the name would imply, it consists of deprecated code that was converted to plain text. Another reference to the scrapped undo feature appears near the bottom.
