SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, and mentioned on the show, the first Rescue Rangers game is affordable, at $17 for the loose cart, although it’s $55 for the box, manual and cart. But the sequel? Much like DuckTales 2, it was another Capcom-Disney collaboration that came out toward the end of the NES’ lifespan. So, it’s $217 for the loose cart of Rescue Rangers 2, and $593 for the box, manual and cart.

– You can read more about Rescue Rangers here. As mentioned on the show, the title themes are done by the same guy, and they’re both fantastic.
