Canary Village

Choucream Zoo[1] (also written as Chou Cream Zoo[2], short for Chou à la Crème, and simply referred to as City Zoo in the English prototype) is a location in Mother. It's located north of Canary Village and north of the town of Podunk, and is also where the third melody can be found. It was founded in 1985.[3] The zoo's animals are roaming freely and display hostile qualities during the beginning of the game and Ninten is sent there to bring it back to its original state.

Choucream Zoo

Ninten gains access to the zoo once he's saved Pippi from the cemetery. The mayor of Podunk will reward him with the Zoo Key and $100 after the rescue, while hoping that he will bring the zoo back to order again. When he reaches the entrance of the zoo while carrying the Zoo Key, a monkey will appear and steal it. The monkey uses the key to open the gate of the zoo, while running back into the zoo, thus making it enterable.

The zoo consists of eleven boundary fences, a few flowerbeds and several symmetrically placed trees that act as blockades. Animals that can be found within the zoo includes rabbits, monkeys, pandas, penguins and flamingos. The zoo follows a snake-like pattern, which must be followed to get to the Superintendent's Office which lies to the east within the zoo. A singing monkey will appear within the most northeastern fence after Starman Jr. is defeated and will sing the third melody.

Superintendent's Office

The Superintendent's Office (Japanese: かんり じむしょ Superintendence Office) consists of three floors with two rooms each, and the room to the left on the second floor being the only one which doesn't contain a present (excluding the room containing Starman Jr.). The only enemies that are present there are rats, centipedes, flies and the boss of the area. When the capsule-like object on the topmost floor of the building has been checked, Ninten will meet the second boss of the game, Starman Jr..


  • Antidote, found in the left room on the first floor of the office.
  • Bread, found in the right room on the second floor of the office.
  • Life Up Cream, found in the right room on the third floor of the office.
  • Rope, found in the left room on the first floor of the office.
