So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Even though it sounds like "Rat" and "Patootie", which does NOT sound delicious, Ratatouille is a decent game based on the Pixar film Ratatouille, which is based on the French dish, ratatouille.

Prerelease Material

Removed Levels

Test Stages

In Levels.tsc in the Gamecube version, there are strings referencing possible test stages from early in development. The files for these levels don't exist in the retail game.

Offset String

0x10E3 Test_Connex

Peeling Potatoes 2

In the finished game there's a minigame in Little Chef - Big Kitchen called Peeling Potatoes, which involves the player rapidly spinning the left stick and pressing A to peel and slice potatoes, respectively. The minigame is known internally as "MG_POTA", for "minigame potato". However, there's exists one instance of "MG_POTA2" within levels.tsc in the Gamecube version, and instead of being found with Peeling Potatoes, it's located with the Minigames for The Deserted Kitchen instead. It's possible that at one point of development a potato minigame was part of the dinner rush in the final stage.

Offset String
0x7CFF MG_POTA2

Dream 09

Located in the "WORLD" folder in the root of the Gamecube version are all of the stages in the game. All 10 dream worlds are present, but there are supposedly 11 entries, being "DREAM01"-"DREAM11". One stage file is completely missing, being "DREAM09", and all of it's necessary files have been removed along with any references in the code.

Hmmm...
To do:
There is (presumably) an extra dream world level in Ratatouille PS2 version. In the Gamecube version, all references to "Dream09" are completely missing. See if this extra dream level is on other platforms and document it all in one video and post findings.
