Unused Graphics

E3 Demo Leftover


E3SCR512.BS contains a leftover screen from the E3 demo version. It seems to be from a fairly early build, as the game is just called "Rugrats 3D Adventure" at this point.

Early Company Logos

The game has animated logos for n-Space, THQ, and Nickelodeon. These still image logos differ from the final designs. Interestingly, the Nickelodeon logo was recycled and used for the second PlayStation game, Studio Tour.

Unused Music


DATA\SOUND\SEPS\INTRO.SEQ is a peculiar sequence that does not sound like something from Rugrats, and may be leftover from something else. It also has a duplicate called INTRO.OLD.


BRAZIL.SEP contains two unused music sequences, neither of which have the proper sample data, so will be presented as MIDI files.

A four and a half minute long samba song based on Aquarela do Brasil

A short rendition of Stayin' Alive by The Bee Gees.


An unknown jazzy tune.

Another unknown jazzy tune.

A rendition of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt.

An unknown janky tune.


An unused tune intended for Circus Angelicus.


An unfinished sounding victory tune.

Unused Voices

Take 593

In DATA\SOUND\XA\DB08.ISF is where all the game's speech is. In this take, you can hear Cheryl Chase read the take number 593 at the beginning. This does not play in-game.

Unused Areas

The Return of Mr. Friend

MrFriend2.png MrFriend3.png MrFriend1.png

An unused level is in the game's coding, which is a sequel to The Mysterious Mr. Friend. Upon defeating Mr. Friend, he falls apart and disappears, but no cutscene plays, so you're stuck until you quit to the main menu. There are also two unused items in here; a daytime version of Tommy's Airplane, which you can see a dark version of in "Let There Be Light", and a push-ball-popper toy. Both items can be held and carried like normal items.

Be Bad

An unused level titled "Be Bad" is in the game's coding (level ID 19). However, if you try to load it, the game crashes. The level ID takes place between "Egg Hunt" and "No More Cookies", both of which were minigames, which implies "Be Bad" was also going to be a minigame stage, versus a full level.

Ice Cream Mountain

Another unused level is titled "Ice Cream Mountain", and crashes upon loading. The final game has a separate level titled "Ice Cream Mountain Hole One" for the actual mini-golf minigame, so it's unknown if the original Ice Cream Mountain was going to be a full adventure stage. The unused version has a level ID that's in the same area as other adventure stages, as opposed to the minigames.

Unused Videos

In DATA/OPEN are duplicates of each video, ending with a B. They are all just a black and grey square for 7 seconds.
