JumpStart ABC's is a game in the JumpStart series released in 1999. It is a game adaptation of JumpStart Preschool: Who Left the Juice in the Caboose?, a home video released that same year.

Unused Graphics


A sketch of the JumpStart Train Station minigame with the internal name "train grid", found in LTS.dxr.

Unused Music

Lmm.dxr, which contains assets for the game's main menu screen, contains this unused audio track with the internal name "train original", which is an instrumental remix of the 1946 song "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie". Given its length, it was presumably intended to be used as background music. While most of the game's tracks were adapted from the home video, this one isn't, which might explain why it goes unused.

Unused Voice Clips

Main Menu

Lmm.dxr contains several voice clips for Frankie which are related to the different areas that the player can visit. Considering that they are noticeably lower in quality than the other in-game voice clips, it's possible these were only intended as placeholders. In the final release, all but one of these lines are spoken by Eleanor instead, with only a few minor revisions (such as changing the word 'toboggan' to 'sled').

Audio Line Notes
Let's go and meet Casey Cat at the Pizza Palace. Standard introductions for each location. In the final version, the second line uses 'sled' instead of 'toboggan'.
Tuna Mountain! I wonder if Pierre the Bear is sliding in his toboggan today.
Kisha Koala sure could use your help at the JumpStart Train Station. All aboard!
You can learn and sing songs with Hopsalot at the Band Stand, but remember, Hopsalot isn't on the passenger list.
You've already earned everything at the Pizza Palace, but click again if you'd like to play anyway. Dialogue for revisiting each location after already having collected all of the items there.
You've already earned everything at Tuna Mountain, but click again if you'd like to play anyway.
You've already earned everything at the Train Station, but click again if you'd like to play anyway.
You've already earned everything at the Band Stand, but click again if you'd like to play anyway. This is the only line to go completely unused since the player can't earn any items at the Band Stand.

Band Stand

Lsa.dxr contains assets for the Bandstand, where the player can view sing-along sequences adapted from the video. A voice clip of Hopsalot saying "responsibility" can be found among other voice clips of him saying the names of the songs listed at the Bandstand. Responsibility is the name of a song from the video, but it wasn't adapted into a sing-along sequence for the game. The presence of this voice clip may imply that this song was intended to be included in the game at some point.

Tuna Mountain

LTM.dxr has this unused line for Pierre. The in-game version of this line uses 'sled' instead of 'toboggan'.
