BAM! Entertainment was a dormant video game publisher that published such titles as Carmen Sandiego: The Secret of the Stolen Drums, Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo, and various video game console adaptations of Cartoon Network programs. Threatened as early as 2002,[1] NASDAQ eventually delisted their stock in 2004.[2] Currently based out of San Jose, California, the company has not released any new products since its delisting.[3]

History[edit]

BAM! was founded in 1999 in San Jose, California as Bay Area Multimedia, Inc. In 2000 the company changed its name to BAM! Entertainment.[4][5] That same year, BAM! partnered with Cartoon Network to create games based on its shows Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls, and in 2002 that partnership expanded to include Samurai Jack.[6]
