PaRappa The Rapper Wiki

Instructor Mooselini's Rap, also known as Driver's Test, is the second song you perform in the second level of PaRappa The Rapper.

Cutscene/Transcript

You guys sit in the back.png

The four have gone to enjoy some sweet treats at Phat Donut, and Sunny asks the others what they would like to do. PaRappa suggests they go to the beach, and they all agree until Katy informs them of their lack of transportation. PJ also mentions they need a license too, as none of them drive.

Just then, a big, red, and long limo pulls up known as the Super Stretched Limo 1000. PaRappa and PJ go over all of the fine details, which are vinyl cheetah-textured seats with a maximum speed of more than 400,000,000, as the limo stops. Joe Chin then steps out and asks them how they like it, with PJ and PaRappa both responding positively in earnest. Joe then tells them it's a convertible, brags how it's capable of leaping over tall buildings in a single bound, and then asks the girls if they'd like to ride to the beach with him. They accept, but only if Parappa and PJ can go too, to which Joe agrees, letting the girls sit up front, and the boys in the back in front of a bath tub. However, the convertible backs up and crashes into the Phat Donut, causing the sign and multiple donuts to fall upon Parappa and PJ. 

PaRappa soon begins to picture himself driving his own car with Sunny next to him. He would be so happy to be able to take Sunny anywhere, when he suddenly gets an idea. He'll go and get his license so that he can impress Sunny, while PJ feasts on the dropped donuts.

At U-Drive-U, the course teacher, Mooselini, will only let PaRappa pass depending on how well he performs her car rap.

After he clears the song, PaRappa goes to get his license photo taken, but a falling piece of confetti causes him to sneeze at the last second, spoiling his license photo (though he still can drive). If you get cool, Parrapa does not spoil his license photo.

The scene shows Phat Donut where PaRappa and his friends are eating.

Sunny Funny: It's a great day today. So what do you guys wanna do?

PaRappa Rappa: Lets go down to the beach!

PJ Berri: OK, Sounds cool!

Katy Kat: Don't we need a car to get anywhere?

PJ Berri (Slurp): Yeah, and a liscense too.

Dust appears in front, followed by the shine from a fancy limousine.

PaRappa Rappa: Woh!! Check that out!! That's the Super Stretched Limo 900!

PJ Berri: Yeah! The maximum speed is tuned up to 463,243.,.

PaRappa Rappa: And vinyl panther seats, too!

Joe Chin steps out of the limo.

Joe Chin: Hi!

He shuts the door.

Joe Chin: How do like my new car guys?

PJ Berri: Man, it's phat!

PaRappa Rappa: The color is awesome too!

Joe Chin: Not only that, it's a convetable! And it is capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound!

Joe Chin (Cont'd): Would you girls like to go to the beach with me?

Sunny Funny: Sure. Only if all of us can go.

Joe Chin: Of course, of course! Come on girls, sit up front with me. you guys can sit in the back.

PaRappa, PJ, and Boxy Boy all sit in the back.

Joe Chin: Everybody hold on!

He starts the car and it crashes through the donut shop. Parappa and PJ become dazed as donuts surround them. Joe starts the car again and drive down the road. Parappa daydreams about himself and Sunny flying together in a plane.

PaRappa Rappa: Man.... If I only had a car and a liscense...... I could take Sunny anywhere! (Sigh)..... How can I do that?

A lightbulb appears.

PaRappa Rappa: Yeah I know! I GOTTA BELIEVE!

The Car sign says "U-Drive-U" and "Instructor Mooselini is standing here".

Instructor Mooselini: You wanna learn how to drive huh? It's harder than you think it is.

Instructor Mooselini (Cont'd): If you think you can handle it, try this rap!

Trivia

  • If the wrong button is pressed, Parappa will pull out the steering wheel.
  • In PaRappa The Rapper 2, during the first chapter cutscene at the start, when Parappa and PJ are walking down the road, the U-Drive building can be seen in the background. This is the same brand as on top of the car a sign saying 'U-Drive' can be seen.
  • When Instructor Mooselini closes the car door, you can hear a little ’hmm’ she makes before starting the car up again.
  • In the first part where Parappa must turn the car, if the opposite shoulder button is pressed in place of the intended button, the test car will spin out and go straight in the intersection.
    • Despite this mistake, it doesn't affect the ending.
  • If you complete the level on Cool rating, PaRappa will not sneeze in the cutscene afterward.
  • If the up button of the d-pad is pressed, you can find Prince Fleasawallow on the road.
  • In "Parappa on Screen", a different audio of Failing Cool Mode is similar to Instructor Moosesha[1]
  • The original ending of bad/awful said "That's because you gotta do it again!". It was likely changed because the player could fail before Instructor Mooselini said "Do you know why we stopped the car again?", making the first part unneeded.
  • The song samples the 1971 song "Turtles have Short Legs" by CAN.
