Yoshi's Woolly World arrives this week in Europe and Australia, with Good-Feel giving Mario's buddy the yarn treatment. We couldn't help but love it in our review, and we're sure a number of Wii U owners are contemplating whether to splash the cash.

Whether you're picking Woolly's World up or waiting for its October arrival in North America, the video below gives a nice look at some of Yoshi's hits over the generations. The video is a little selective in ignoring a spin-off or two, but is a charming watch.

Does any other character match the cuteness that Yoshi serves up?
