To do:
Possibly video of the two mentioned animations (60fps would be appreciated)?

The title screen animations in both versions are different. In the Japanese version, the PC Denjin title gets smashed by PC Denjin himself, while in the American version Bonk is standing on a building, puts on shades and becomes Air Zonk.

The Japanese release uses a cartoon piece of poop with sunglasses as the bomb sprite. It was changed to a bomb with sunglasses in the US version.

In the Japanese version of the game, the cow helper's combination move has PC Denjin wearing lipstick and shooting milk from milk bottles that look like nipples. The lipstick was removed and the bottles changed in the US version, which now shoot themselves instead of shooting milk.
