"Hoo, I say, hootie hoo! What a truly glorious find! My cup runneth over! Now let me see here... Where shall I begin? Apatosaurus... Hmmm... It lived in the late Jurassic period, and was a member of the diplodocid family of long-necked sauropods. You may be more familiar with the name brontosaurus, though that is a separate species of the same genus. It grew to some 70 feet in length. It had a small head, a long, thick neck, and an amazing whip-like tail, wot! Cra-ack! Whup-pshh! Oh, dear! Awfully sorry! I was envisioning myself with a massive tail! Hoo hoo!"
 Animal Crossing: Wild World
"The apatosaur was once called a brontosaur, I'll have you know. It is well known for having a rather long neck and tail and for being an herbivore. However, it appears that, unlike the giraffe, it could not make its neck vertical! Yes, blood flow, you see. If it straightened more than 90 degrees, it might faint! Ah. Hoo. Terribly sorry. If I kept speaking at that rate, I might have fainted!"
 Animal Crossing: City Folk
"...Ah, hoo, let's see now. Yes! The apatosaurus is complete! Hoo hoo huzzah! What a vision it will be! The apatosaurus was once called a brontosaurus, as you may be aware. Both its neck and its tail were extremely long, making for a huge, herbivorous dinosaur... In fact, thanks to how large and weighty their bodies were, they often lived in lakes and swamps, eh wot? Their nostrils were located on their foreheads-- perhaps that helped! HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"
