* [[ViewersAreMorons Gamers Are Morons]]: There is a large red sticker on the top of the cartridge saying "PRESS HERE". This was to let you know you had to press the game down if you had the original NES. Unless this was your first time loading a game, every old school gamer and their grandmother knew how to load a game into an original NES. WebVideo/JonTron even made a joke about it, saying that, when pressed, the circle would make a Jeff [=VanVonderen=] soundbyte.

-->'''Jon''': HAHA, I'm just playing with ya, it doesn't do jack shit. Why is it here?

Added DiffLines:

* CrapsackWorld: Bomb ghettos, underground demon fortresses, snake caves, and every other building is half-blown up. And this is just if you want to go to your uncle's house.


Added DiffLines:

* FreeRangeChildren: Wally Bear and the No Gang are allowed to go to Uncle Gary Grizzly's house alone. Wally's path a least goes through a demilitarized ghetto with people throwing bombs out their windows all day, a snake cave, and an underground demon fortress.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The whole [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalypse]] theory is usually horribly overused, but Wally's trip to his uncle's house involves castles, decrepit ghettos, guys randomly throwing bombs, and a subway system that passes right through an underground snake fortress. Despite all of that, the ''only'' thing observed as weird in this world is substance abuse problems. At the very least, this is some sort of bizarre CrapsackWorld.

[[caption-width-right:230:[[SarcasmMode Already this game is off to a good start.]] [[BrokenAesop In fact, you might even need to take some drugs just to tolerate this crap.]]]]
An unlicensed {{NES}} game from 1992 by American Game Cartridges designed to teach kids the dangers of drugs and alcohol, this stars Wally Bear, a TotallyRadical [[XtremeKoolLetterz sk8r boi]] who goes off to a party planned by his Uncle Gary Grizzly. Along the way he meets up with Toby Turtle, Priscilla Poodle and other FunnyAnimal friends.

This was developed in cooperation with the American Medical Association and the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information (NCADI). There was even a toll-free phone number, 1-800-HI-WALLY, in which kids could hear a few phrases from their bear hero. Amazingly, it remained active until October 2007, 15 years after the game was released.

!!This game provides examples of:
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: Ricky Rat and his rock-throwing (as in drugs) minions.
* DrugsAreBad: If [[SouthPark Mr. Mackey]] designed a game, this would be it.
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Dogs and birds and drug-pushing rats! [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Oh my!]]
* FunnyAnimal
* [[ViewersAreMorons Gamers Are Morons]]: There is a large red sticker on the top of the cartridge saying "PRESS HERE".
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Neither Wally's dad nor his uncle [[{{Squick}} wear any pants]].
* OneHitPointWonder: Wally can only take one hit unless he carries a frisbee power-up.
* SensoryAbuse: The hideous apple wallpaper in Wally's living room, as seen above (which also has no furniture for some reason).
* SoundtrackDissonance: Everything is out to kill you as sleepy lullaby music plays. [[SarcasmMode Now that's the perfect way to set the mood]].
* TotallyRadical
* WraparoundBackground: It's as if {{Hanna-Barbera}} designed the levels.
* WritingAroundTrademarks: The game was originally supposed to be called ''Wally Bear and the Just Say No Gang'', but former first lady Nancy Reagan already trademarked the phrase.
