Um Jammer Lammy is the sort-of sequel to PaRappa the Rapper, starring a guitarist lamb who's late for her gig.
A graphic found in the music player. It is a screenshot from the credits with the text "XA PLAYER" and a kanji symbol (仮) that means "temporary". XA is the filename extension for the game's music data that the PlayStation reads from.
In the rare arcade version of the game, Um Jammer Lammy Now!, you can play Stage 1 as PaRappa. While you can't access it by any normal means in the home version, the data remains. By using the GameShark code 300790B4 0003 in the US version, you can play the stage, but the only thing functional is the song, not the scenery. The song is also unfinished in this version, so there are no alternate lyrics to it like most of PaRappa's stages.

A number of things were changed or censored when the game was brought to the US. The European version retains all of the original Japanese content.
There's still some alterations left to cover; Namely, Stage 5 in PaRappa's campaign, Vital Idol in Lammy's campaign, the multiplayer, the cutscenes for "MILK CAN, That's Us!", and the end credits. Coverage on Stage 6 in PaRappa's campaign is also incomplete.
The Japanese logo animation gets a cool fire effect.
|"You can play in hell! You come far!"||"You can play in an island! You come far!"|
The lyrics were changed in the US version due to stage 6 being changed from Hell to an island.
|"Choppin' trees down for the fun!"||"Knowin' that we're here for the fun!"|
|"Chop all of them down, every single one down"||"Come on and get down, way down to the low ground"|
The lyrics were changed because telling kids that chopping down trees is fun probably isn't a good idea.
Parappa's lyrics were changed accordingly.
|"Ain't this fun, having fun in the sun, I love rocking to the beat, just for fun!"||"Aint this fun, having fun in the sun, I love chopping down trees, just for fun!"|
Interestingly, the subtitles for the US release aren't completely altered for the latter line.
The cutscene for stage 6 was changed almost completely. The Japanese and European versions show Lammy being sent to Hell upon death, while the US version shows Lammy being catapulted to an island. Oddly enough, a lot of the dialogue is left intact, with only a few minor differences.
Due to the cutscene changes mentioned above, Lammy gets a camouflage outfit exclusive to the US version. Parappa's outfit remains unchanged, due to having a different subplot.
|"The angel's been mean to me, that's for sure."||"My friend's been mean to me, that's for sure."|
The lyrics to PaRappa's version of Vital Idol were changed from an angel to... a friend.
The dialogue before Stage 6 is different between versions.
All versions of the game contains both standard anti-mod and LibCrypt subchannel-based copy protection (see the Dino Crisis and Robbit Mon Dieu pages for details on them). However, tripping the copy protection in the PAL version of the game causes the game to display the anti-piracy warning in Japanese, an issue also seen in the US 1.0 version of Dino Crisis.
