Trivia

1001 Video Games

Yoshi's Island appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Fuzzy

In the German version, the level that introduces the spores that have an, um, mind-expanding effect on Yoshi is called "Lustiges Sporen-Drama" (Funny spore drama). Just build the acronym of this title. Could this possibly be a very subtle joke?
