|Evidently DK beat Felix to the arcades by a year.|
|Poor Ralph. Why does Felix get two pictures?|

It means that Disney was exceptionally thorough in their design and research in order to create an authentic feel for something that's actually on screen for very little time in the film itself.
And that I'm a huge nerd for noticing it and pointing it out...
