** Ralph himself is a human Franchise/DonkeyKong. The hero of the game, Felix, is an imitation of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] (or, as he was called back in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', Jumpman). It's probably a coincidence, but Felix's name and appearance also remind of handyman [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/amiga/night-shift/screenshots/gameShotId,32574/ Fred Fixit]] from Creator/LucasArts' obscure title ''Night Shift''.
