You both fail. Beehives and bees falling out of trees in this game is obviously a reference to the 1991 coming-of-age film 'My Girl', where Macaulay Culkin dies of a bee sting and Anna Chlumsky has her first period. A true classic.

Has sniff her first period? Bee stings? Coming of age?

Oh, I fear I must shield my eyes.

Nope you are all wrong because in the game Hydlide if you bump into a tree bees will come out of it and attack Jim the Knight.

Sorry, but you're wrong too. Nintendo is known for throwing in clever nods to their games in each new game. The bees appeared in the obscure Gamecube title, Animal Crossing. Since that game was, surprisingly, a success, Nintendo decided to make multiple spiritual successors to the game. Coincidentally, each of these happened to also be titled "Animal Crossing", hence the need for subtitles. They decided to do quite a bit of fanservice by bringing back a recurring villain from the original, Bee. They even had him encountered and defeated in the exact same way as the original, so players who grew up battling the evil forces of Bee could know just what to do when stumbling across some of his minions.

Which in turn is a referance to super mario galaxy, in which mario can get a bee suit. Super Mario Galaxy is an obscure low budget indie game, that ripped off Star Trek.

when you first start the game, a talking cat asks you questions about your personal information. This may seem like a reference to the supreme court system in which questions are asked, but is actually nintendo's way of teaching kids not to talk to strangers.

Who are you running from? (?_?)/
someday there will be a cactus pokemon, that is actually good.

Very wrong! It was originally released only in Japan for the Play Station One under the name "Tanuki! Tanuki! The Great Forest of the Happy Animal Spirits". It then got ported to the Game Cube under the name "Animal Crossing".

And it was such a terrible port. It was basically a downgrade to the original. Nintendo doesn't even count the GameCube port as a game and still looks forward to the day they can come close to the PS1 original masterpiece.

WARNING

If you have ever mistreated any of your villagers, then heed my warning. If at least one of your villagers has become self-aware, and I mean just one, then run for the hills! Eventually, the rest of the animals will follow suit and conspire a revolt against you. In the end, when your rule as mayor has been finally overthrown, the town hall is demolished and a barn later called "The Manor Farm" takes its place. Eventually, things become so terrible that the game itself becomes corrupted and the title is renamed, "Animal Farm: Napoleon Reigns."

This whole scenario, in case you couldn't figure it out, is an obvious reference to the most popular, best-selling game of 2001, "Animal Crossing: Population Shrinking."

If you wait a year without playing, you're villagers will call you a "necromayor", and then they will form an angry mob and burn your house down.

After downloading a limited time item from the Post Office or opening your gate/search for towns with their gates open, Pelly or Porter, respectively, will say, "Sorry to keep you waiting!", which is a reference to Kid Icarus: Uprising. This could be because Pelly and Porter have the same first letter in their name as Pit and Palutena.
