The California Raisins: The Grape Escape is an unreleased 1990 video game produced by Capcom that was scheduled for release in 1991[1]. The player controls a California Raisin in an effort to save the California Raisins and their musical notes from the Wild Bunch. The game was cancelled due to California Raisins' dwindling popularity in the 1990s.

On January 21, 2003, a prototype cartridge was found in Florida by Brandon Murphy[2]. After an article was published, game collectors began haggling with Brandon to sell the game and release the ROM image, and so the cart was sold to a collector, followed by a ROM image being released on August 1 that year.
