Plug 'N Plays are video game controllers that plug directly into a TV created by the toy company Jakks Pacific. Most often contain various cartoon licenses (like Disney, Spongebob, etc.), but quite a few contain Pac-Man and other Namco characters.

Trivia

  • Graphic and sound data for Jr. Pac-Man has been found in the data of Retro Arcade featuring Pac-Man, meaning Jr. Pac-Man was possibly playable in development, but removed for unknown reasons.
  • Various Plug 'N Plays had different designs in development then the final products produced. Interestingly, an early picture of the Super Pac-Man unit seems to have an extra button as well as a Gamekey cartridge slot.
  • While most games included are direct arcade ports, various graphical changes have been made in some games. The biggest game changed was Pole Position, in which the billboards had different pictures (including the Jakks Pacific logo).
  • Jakks Pacific no longer owns any Namco rights. They sold them to Bandai in exchange for Nintendo toy licenses.
