Hey everyone, I hope I’m not annoying anyone by doing another Cutting Room Floor meme, but they’re just fun to do. Here is the link to the blank template if you want to do your own:elementalsunburst.deviantart.c…

#10 Meowth’s Party (Canceled Pokemon Game) - Back in the early 2000’s, Nintendo created a demo for a game called “Meowth’s Party” to promote their newest system: The Gamecube. The demo itself had no real gameplay but cutscenes and music that the game might’ve featured. It even had the 4Kids cast reprise their roles as Meowth, Jessie, and James. The game was supposed to be about Team Rocket throwing shindigs to lure Pokemon to steal with gameplay similar to Rockband. Sadly the plug was pulled on Meowth’s Party but there is a homage to it in Smash Bros. Melee as an unlockable Meowth trophy.
#9 Shanghaied Alternate Endings (Spongebob) - In the episode “Shanghaied”, The Flying Dutchman personally decides who gets their last wish. In real life however, the fans voted online to pick who got the last wish (Spongebob won). In both unused endings the group gets eaten but, for different reasons. If Squidward got the wish he would’ve wished to have never met Spongebob and Patrick, but the Dutchman only wipes their memory of him and they get eaten. In Patrick’s wish, he wishes for mint gum claiming “If we’re going to be here forever, we might as well have fresh breath!” Spongebob and Squidward glumly chew some gum before they are eaten by the Dutchman.
#8 Unused levels from Crash Twinsanity (Crash Bandicoot) - Crash Twinsanity has many removed and unfinished features in the game’s code and concept art, such as Coco being playable, Crash wielding a sword, and several removed levels. My personal favorites are the levels “Gone a bit Coco” (Cortex enters Coco’s mind), Ocean Commotion (Crash pilots Mecha Bandicoot and uses it to destroy the Reverse Vise Versa device that was also removed from the game), and the unnamed Airboard level (Crash and/or Cortex pilot the airboard through a canyon full of flying swordfish). Ironically, components from some of these levels still exist and can even be used in the game via hacking or glitching.
#7 The Wampas break into Echo Base (The Empire Strikes Back) - Originally the Wampas were meant to dig their way into the Rebel Base as the Empire began moving in and attack Rebels and Snowtroopers alike. The Rebels would mark a door that contained them with a warning sign which C3P0 would rip off to fool some unsuspecting Snowtroopers. One unfortunate trooper gets pulled in through the door and mauled when he opens it. Vader hears the Wampas roar and takes the rest of the Snowtroopers away from the hallway. This scene would actually referenced in the new EA Battlefront game in which you can find the door with the warning sign in the Echo Base level, you can even hear the Wampa’s roaring on the other side.
#6 Toy Story level (Kingdom Hearts) - I must admit, I’ve never played Kingdom Hearts! That said, I was pretty surprised that Toy Story was planned to be in the series. Little is known about the Toy Story level and the only proof of it’s existence are the unfinished models of Buzz and Woody in the game’s files. It would’ve been cool to see what the level would’ve been like, I don’t know who’d be the main villain for the level probably Zurg or Stinky Pete. Hopefully in a future KH game they’ll add this in, especially if they get all the Voice Actors from the movies.
Plus, I think we can all agree that they should’ve had this instead of Chicken Little.
#5 Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect (Jurassic Park) - Long before Jurassic World surprised the world with hybrid Dinos, Hasbro released a series of toys that were hybrid Dinos. There were plans for a series to go alongside the toys, but due to lack of popularity it never came to fruition and was most likely recycled into Jurassic World.
#4 The Enchanted River (Desolation of Smaug) - The Enchanted River was a big obstacle in the book and I am surprised they took it out of the movie. The scene plays out mostly as it does in the book, the Dwarves and Bilbo find the river cursed by the Necromancer and if they touch it they will fall into a deep sleep, Bombur falls in. Unlike the Book, they don’t shoot an arrow tied to a rope and use a boat to cross, rather they climb across vines and tree roots to get across.
#3 Hydro Man (Spectacular Spider-man) - There are many rumors of what would’ve happened in Season 3 of Spectacular Spider-man, one of the biggest possibilities was Morris Bench becoming Hydro Man. Morris only appeared in one episode in season 2 where he was voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, the man behind Patrick Star and Marshall’s father from How I met your Mother. Given the fact he was voiced by a celebrity like Vulture and the treatment of characters of Venom, Doc Ock, and Mysterio it can be presumed he would’ve returned and developed into a villain similar to Electro or Molten Man. Interestingly, Bill Fagerbakke would go on to voice Hydro Man in his aqua form for the Spider-man ride in Orlando.
#2 The unused Colossi (Shadow of the Colossus) - Originally there were planned to be 48 Colossi, 24 were programmed into the game before being scrapped due to the limitations of the PS2 or being too powerful/difficult, causing only 16 were implemented into the final game. Some Unused Colossi include a Spider, a Boar, a Griffon, and Phoenix to name a few. Hopefully someday we will see these Colossi in action as many people want a sequel to Shadow of the Colossus, but for now we have the originals.
#1 Beastly Kingdom (Disney World) - For the first time on one of these lists, I’ll be talking about a planned location. At Disney World there is a place called the Animal Kingdom, which is separated into two groups, Dinosaurs and regular Animals. Originally there was planned to be a third kingdom called the “Beastly Kingdom” which would be dedicated to mythical creatures of both good and evil. Many attractions were planned, such as the park’s first inverted coaster, a real fire breathing Dragon, and a Fantasia ride. There was even a McDonalds toy made to help promote Beastly Kingdom. Unfortunately, due to space and budgeting issues the park scrapped the idea and instead focused on Dinoland to help promote Disney’s DInosaur, both of which would later fail. Today, in the land where Beastly Kingdom was planned to be is now going to be home to Avatar. You know, the movie that WASN’T made by Disney. It is sad that we might never get a Beastly Kingdom but, there are scattered Easter eggs of it in the Animal Kingdom.
Honorable Mentions:The cancelled 2009 Flash game - An awesome game that would've had awesome gameplay and many of Flash's foes.
Ghostbusters 3 - This infamously planned sequel was going to be a passing of the torch film, Anne Hatheway would’ve been one of the stars.
The Waterfall scene (Phantom Menace) - The Jedi and Jar Jar Binks escape their submarine before goes over the waterfalls.The Egypt level (Sly 4) - Originally there was meant to be a 6th level set in Ancient Egypt, instead Sly was sent to Egypt in the secret ending.
I like drawing, cooking, baking, hiking, TV, and Video Games.
