    Last updated: 10th January 2008
    Version History:
    v1.0 - Original, basic version
    v2.0 - Major overhaul and rewrite
    v2.5 - Transformations section added, error in line 29 removed
    v2.6 - Transformations section mistake removed
    v2.7 - Section numbers and search note corrected (oops)
    v3.0 - Realised that the Transformations section had no information on the
           transformations themselves, just the costs, so expanded that whole
           section greatly. Also, two minor mistakes fixed. Hopefully the last
           update unless I find another mistake in the guide - it's pretty
           complete, and I don't think there is much more I can add to it!

    Note to people wanting to SEARCH through this document: All section titles
    appear EXACTLY as above, except in CAPITAL LETTERS, so you have two options!
    Either copy part or all of the Section Title into your search bar, and click
    twice (once for when it appears in the contents, and once for the actual
    section), OR select "Match case" and type it in ALL CAPS. Then it should find
    it straight away! It'd probably be easier to simply search for "SECTION #"
    (case sensitive, replace # with the number you are looking for).
                             SECTION 1: INTRODUCTION
    This is a 100% complete list of the Mumbo Tokens, or Uggum Juggums, in
    Banjo-Kazooie. I've often wondered whether I had found every single one in the
    game, and so once I started actually counting how many I was finding in each
    level. Soon, I found that there was a multiple of five Uggum Juggums on every
    single level, including the hub world, Gruntilda's Lair.
    Here are the total numbers of Mumbo Tokens on each world in the game.
    Gruntilda's Lair     - 10
    Mumbo's Mountain     - 5
    Treasure Trove Cove  - 10
    Clanker's Cavern     - 5
    Bubblegloop Swamp    - 10
    Freezeezy Peak       - 10
    Gobi's Valley        - 10
    Mad Monster Mansion  - 15
    Rusty Bucket Bay     - 15
    Click Clock Wood     - 25 (Spring: 8, Summer: 7, Autumn: 5, Winter: 5)
    Total number in game - 115
    Now, Click Clock Wood is different, as it is basically the same level viewed
    four times, but in different seasons. If you assume each season is a separate
    area within the level, that makes the level much, much bigger than any of the
    preceding areas - so this is why there are so many more Uggum Juggums in
    Click Clock Wood. They are spread out throughout the four seasons, and each
    Uggum Juggum only appears in ONE of those seasons, so if you were trying to
    find them all yourself, you would have to thoroughly check ALL four seasons
    of the level.
    There is a rumour going round that there is, in fact, a 116th Mumbo Token in
    the game. There is most certainly not - and I will give more information on
    this later in the guide, after the complete list, to avoid spoiling the
    relevant part of the game for anyone. See Section 4 for full details.
    Anyway, several years later, I came back to Banjo-Kazooie again. I remembered
    that there was a multiple of five on every level, including Gruntilda's Lair,
    and decided that I would write a guide to find them all - I am a completist,
    and if I don't collect everything, I feel like I haven't earnt my 100%
    completion. Previously, I would just remember how many I had upon entering
    each level, and make sure I left with a multiple of five more, but I thought it
    would be a useful resource for others if I recorded where every single one in
    the game is!
                             SECTION 2: TRANSFORMATIONS AND COSTS
    There are five places in the game where you can trade in your Uggum Juggums for
    transformations - here is the list of levels with Mumbo's Skull, or the Uggum
    Juggum Hut, with its respective transformation along with the cost:
    Mumbo's Mountain    - Termite   - 5
    Bubblegloop Swamp   - Crocodile - 10
    Freezeezy Peak      - Walrus    - 15
    Mad Monster Mansion - Pumpkin   - 20
    Click Clock Wood    - Bee       - 25
    Interestingly enough, three of those levels have exactly the same number of
    Mumbo Tokens in them as you need for that level's transformation. The two
    exceptions are Freezeezy Peak, which only has 10, and Mad Monster Mansion,
    which only has 15.
    You will therefore need 75 of them for every transformation in the game, and
    since there are 115 in total, you should have 40 spare at the end if you have
    got them all.
    The Termite's main purpose is climbing steep cliffs that you can't scale as
    Banjo and Kazooie, not even using the Talon Trot (or the Chicken Run, as we
    like to call it). This is required to get the Jiggy at the top of Ticker's
    Tower and the Witch Switch Jiggy on top of the Mumbo's Mountain entrance in
    Gruntilda's Lair, and it is very useful in helping you get the empty honeycomb
    piece (the "Nut" as we like to call it) in the side of the mountain.
    The Crocodile can safely move through the swamp without losing any health. It
    is the only transformation in Banjo-Kazooie that has an attack, and this attack
    makes enemies drop TWO honeycombs when killed, instead of one which you get for
    killing them as Banjo and Kazooie. The attack is a simple biting move. The
    crocodile can wear the Turbo Trainers - again, it is the only transformation
    that can. This is very useful in helping you beat Mr Vile in the Yumblie game
    inside the big crocodile, but is not required. I have done it several times
    without learning the Turbo Trainers first, but if I feel like making things
    easier, I often unlock Gobi's Valley after getting 100 notes and 9 Jiggies in
    Bubblegloop Swamp, go in to learn the Turbo Trainers and leave again, then go
    back to get Mr Vile's Jiggy. This has the added advantage of meaning you can
    complete Freezeezy Peak in one session, too, as you already know how to use the
    Turbo Trainers! However, if you are hardcore and want to say you've done it the
    hard way, complete Mr Vile's game without the Turbo Trainers!
    Also, the crocodile can get to Cheato by the Freezeezy Peak puzzle, as long as
    you have smashed the ice ball in front of the entrance as Banjo and Kazooie -
    the crocodile's bite can't smash it. I usually go into Bubblegloop Swamp, learn
    the Wading Boots and leave again to smash this ball, then go back in and
    complete the level, and come out as the crocodile to see Cheato.
    The Walrus can wade through the freezing water in Freezeezy Peak without taking
    damage. You can race Boggy the first time as the walrus, and when you get to
    Wozza's cave, you will be given a Jiggy and allowed to enter the cave. You will
    also be able to get a Nut (empty honeycomb) if you go through the freezing
    water at the back of Wozza's cave as the walrus. Once you've got the Jiggy from
    Wozza, you can then enter the cave as Banjo and Kazooie to get the Jinjo in the
    alcove in the wall, just in front of the Ice Key. The walrus has no uses
    outside Freezeezy Peak.
    The Pumpkin is very small, and has several uses. In Mad Monster Mansion, the
    pumpkin can fit through a small hole in a hedge to get to a ramp leading to the
    mansion roof. From there, you can go into a little hole in a pipe, which earns
    you a Jiggy. You can also enter the bathroom, as long as you've already broken
    the window as Banjo and Kazooie. Since you are so small, you can also go down
    the toilet, Loggo, to get a Jiggy. Yet another room in the mansion has a lot of
    the floor missing, and in the gaps there is a Nut, but you need to be the
    pumpkin to actually fit in the gaps. To get the notes and Jiggy in the well, it
    is recommended that you use the Pumpkin. It is not required, but it is a hell
    of a lot easier to get everything and avoid the Whipcracks in pumpkin form, as
    you won't need to swim - you'll just sink and can jump around.
    When you leave Mad Monster Mansion, there are two things you can do as the
    Pumpkin. The first is to raise the water level to level 1. As long as you have
    knocked the crypt gate off its hinges as Banjo and Kazooie, which I do before
    entering Mad Monster Mansion for the first time, you can fit through the hole
    in the crypt door. Mumbo is inside, and he will change you back so that you can
    stomp on the switch. You need to become a pumpkin again to leave the crypt. The
    other thing to do is to see Cheato. Upon leaving the Mad Monster Mansion area
    and returning to the lava area, follow the very narrow path as the pumpkin, and
    there is a small hole at the end which leads to Cheato.
    The Bee is the final transformation. It can only be used in the Spring part of
    Click Clock Wood, as Mumbo does not transform you in Summer, Autumn and Winter
    due to various reasons, such as it's too hot, too many leaves so he needs to
    sweep up, and he's gone away, leaving a rude beehive in the Uggum Juggum Hut in
    Winter! If you try to enter a different season as the bee, the magic will
    become weak just inside the door. You can, however, leave Click Clock Wood as
    the bee, and fly around the lobby.
    The uses for the bee in Click Clock Wood are as follows: It can fly to the very
    top of the tree, to collect a Jiggy. It can enter the Zubbas' hive to collect a
    Jinjo, and the Zubbas will tell you about themselves. Also, the Snarebear traps
    will not snap at you, which means you can collect anything on top of them with
    no trouble. If you are not the bee, you have to use Gold Feathers to collect
    the stuff they are holding. Finally, the Witch Switch Jiggy for this level
    appears high up in the Click Clock Wood lobby, so you will need to become the
    bee to collect it.

    Whew! That's a total of 115 Mumbo Tokens in the game. You need 75 of them, so
    you should have 40 Uggum Juggums left at the end. If you have got 40 tokens
    left, as well as all the other items, you can now say that you have completed
    the game 100%!
                             SECTION 4: FALSE RUMOURS
    Apparently, there is a rumour going round that there is a 116th Mumbo Token.
    There most certainly is not. Anyone who tells you that there is is incorrect.
    The source of this misinformation appears to be a French website which states
    that there is an Uggum Juggum in the toilet in Mad Monster Mansion. If you
    check, you will find that there is no Mumbo Token, either in the toilet bowl,
    or down the toilet, where you can go as a pumpkin. There is, however, one in
    the sink in the bathroom - but this one was listed on the French website as
    well! So, if anyone tries to tell you that there are 116, you can tell them
    that the 116th Uggum Juggum is in a French toilet!
                             SECTION 5: AND FINALLY... (BONUS CODE!)
    And finally... here's a bonus code for those of you who have read my FAQ! Once
    you've activated all three Cheato codes, here is a code to replenish all eggs
    and feathers at once. It's quicker than the variations I've seen. If you find a
    shorter one, please let me know! The only rule is that, for each code, the
    constituent letters must be in the right order, but if a letter fits in the
    right place in all three codes together, that saves some space! For example,
    the second E is in blueEggs, redfEathers and goldfEathers!
    You could change the order slightly, but this worked well in terms of where the
    letters are on the board, minimising travelling time.
    Here's the code: BGOLRUEDFEGGATHERS
    My mate made up the name "Uggum Juggums" for the Mumbo Tokens, and he calls the
    Skull the "Uggum Juggum Hut". Quite fitting, I think! I realise it's actually
    Eekum Bokum but we hadn't heard the sound for a while when he made the name up,
    and it stuck! I have tried to use the names interchangeably in this FAQ.
    Thank you for reading this, my first In-Depth FAQ, and I hope to see you again
    soon! Feel free to email me if you want, but bear in mind I may not have time
    to answer everyone.
    If you would like this FAQ on your website, please email me to ask permission,
    and I will send you the current version - for example, this version has much
    more information than the previous version! You don't want an out-of-date FAQ
    on your website now, do you!
