Puss 'n Boots: Pero's Great Adventure is a video game released in 1990 by Electro Brain for the NES. In Japan, the game was released as Nagagutsu wo Haita Neko: Sekai Isshuu 80 Nichi Dai Bouken (長靴をはいた猫 世界一周80日大冒険). It was loosely based on Jules Verne's book, Around the World in Eighty Days. Pero's name is also "Perrault" in the Japanese game. The character Pero, who is Toei Animation's mascot, is based on the cat from the folktale entitled Puss in Boots, by Charles Perrault. The game's title comes from that story as well.
