Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party (known as Rayman Prod' Présente : The Lapins Crétins Show in France) is the third game in the Rayman Raving Rabbids spin-off series, and the first game in the Rayman series as a whole to optionally use the Wii Balance Board, though is it also the last and only game to have been such. Unofficial gameplay footage, which included the introduction movie, was leaked onto Youtube starting from 10th November 2008. It is followed by Rabbids Go Home in 2009 and Raving Rabbids Travel In Time in 2010.
The game was officially announced on 28th May 2008 via the Ubidays conference in which two of the minigames were demonstrated by Ubisoft representatives and UK TV presenter Vernon Kay. Following this, several artworks depicting the Rabbids parodying films, TV shows and celebrities (eg football players) were revealed on the official Rabbids website, and recently official gameplay trailers were released.
Deep in the forest, Rayman is running away from a small group of Rabbids. For a few moments, they are distracted by a bolt of lightning, but quickly resume their pursuit. Rayman takes refuge in a small house at the edge of the forest (presumably his), while the Rabbids are then struck by that lightning, and travel into a TV set indoors, where they scream and mess around, making Rayman try to turn it off, but to no avail...
The next day, Rayman is washing the dishes, polishing the windows and vacuuming the house, tired from having had a sleepless night of the Rabbids in the TV annoying him. As they go on and on, Rayman gets so sick of it he unplugs the TV, switching the TV off. At first, he thinks he has succeeded in shutting them up, but the TV switches back on and the Rabbids continue their messing around. In his anger, Rayman slams the TV, making the corner of the screen start cracking.
The night after, Rayman is lying on the sofa with a headache and a hot water bottle on his head, and one of the Rabbids are continuously brightening and dimming the TV. Rayman throws the hot water bottle at the TV, making more cracks appear.
On day four, Rayman is lying and the sofa with a cushion over his head, as one of the Rabbids makes a continuous scream while he keeps changing the volume level. Rayman has an idea, and uses duct tape to wrap around the TV Rabbid's mouth and the volume control, but the Rabbid continues screaming until the TV starts bloating up and the duct tape flies off onto Rayman. Rayman chucks the TV out the window, and it lands in the field outside...
The moles that live underneath the field struggle to spend a day of putting up with the screaming TV Rabbids. Rayman wakes up from having had a peaceful day when he hears a knock on the door. When the opens the door, he is shocked to see the moles throwing the TV back into his house.
The next day, Rayman is reading the newspaper, the TV lying on the floor behind him. It suddenly turns on again, with the screaming Rabbids. Rayman throws the TV into the toilet, and slams the toilet door closed. The TV cracks some more...
The Rabbids are using a hook to pull the toilet lever the following day, continuously flushing the toilet while the Rabbids laugh mischievously. Rayman opens the door to see what all the noise is about, shocked to see what the Rabbids are doing. He puts the TV in the sink and fills the sink up with water, but as he walks away the Rabbids the Rabbids start gurgling extremely loud, making the pipes start bloating up and the house start to shake.
That following night, Rayman is enjoying a game of Rugby, but the Rabbids keep interrupting it. Rayman loses his temper, disattaches his foot and throws it at the TV. The TV finally breaks, releasing the Rabbids inside who chase Rayman out of the house. They accidentally switch the vacuum on as they pass it, and one of the Rabbids stays behind and watches it in wonder and interest. Playing around with it, he accidentally gets the sucker attached to his ears. He then decides to stay in the house and make himself at home...
The setting is the TV station the Rabbids have gotten into. From there, Rabbids can be customized with clothes unlocked in Story Mode. The player can play unlocked games in Training Mode, and play with friends in Party Mode.
Their are three modes in this game: Story Mode, Party Mode, and Training Mode. Story Mode is when you experience what the Rabbids did in an entire week with the television station. Party Mode is for having a multiplayer game for up to eight players. Training Mode is the collection of games played in both Party and Story Mode.The game uses a channel system to play games. On each section chosen, it shows what shows are on in the time slot. When one game is completed, it is saved. Whenever you go to the slot, you can only replay that game. Beating Rayman's score will win an accessory for the Pimp My Rabbid minigame. Among some shows, there are microgames based on TV advertisements. Beating those games gives a bonus for the minigame played, such as getting more points.
