Released in June 1994. This game was originally created and released on the Nintendo Super Famicom in 1993.

'Hebereke' means 'drunk' or 'untrustworthy'. It's colloquial and that's the name of the little penguin. 'Popoon' is the sound that the puzzle pieces make when they pop.

Hebereke's debut was in the Famicom game "Hebereke" (U-four-ia in Europe), the game was so successful that Hebereke became Sunsoft's mascot. In the US, Sunsoft of America managed to get the Looney Tunes license after earning WB's trust because of the Batman games. In order to make these games a priority, Sunsoft blocked the distribution of games from Sunsoft of Japan (including U-four-ia and Mr. Gimmick) until 1994 when Sunsoft of Japan decided to take full control of the American daughter company and terminated the WB contract (some of the remaining games were released by Acclaim). However, the damage was done, Sunsoft was never able to make a star of Hebereke in the US.
