Having cows appearing in pinball games started as an internal joke for the people at Williams/Bally. The first game to include a cow was The Machine: Bride of Pinbot (see below) and the man responsible
was programmer Brian Eddy (designer of The Shadow, Attack From Mars and Medieval Madness).
On the question why he replied: "Why breathe? Why Eat? Why live without cows in pinball machines?"

The story of the cow comes in many different versions. This is the "truth about the cow" according to Mark Penacho:

"The cow in Fire (gravy) had nothing to do with the cows that appeared all
over later on.  One person (who shall remain nameless, BRE) started putting
cows in the games he worked on, and eventually people started copying  (there's also cow stuff all over his house).  It kind of got out of hand after that.  The fact that one person at the time (SS) did all the
dot matrix effects for all games did nothing to curb that trend. 
I did
hear at one time that the Sega people assumed this was some kind of jab at pinball designer Joe Kaminkow (which it wasn't, talk about vanity)."

Another thing that appears in many pinball machines is the word DOHO, which is well hidden in the animations on the Dot Matrix Display. Scott Slomiany (aka. Scott Matrix) "created" the DOHO and it stands for Doris Ho, Scott´s wife.

Also look out for these things: the red button with a telecord (appears in Pat Lawlor-designed games), Skull and crossbones, Champagne glasses, 3, "SM", "Feel The Power", Bob, "Eat at Joe´s" and the artist/designer himself.

Apollo 13, SEGA 1995

Somewhere there´s a hidden Video mode. Please let me know if you know where.
 

Attack From Mars, Bally 1995

Sometimes when you shoot the Big-O-Beam, a cow is displayed and a female voice says: "Would you look at the size of that cow?!" and a moo is heard.
Sometimes when you shoot the Tractor Beam, a cow is beamed up.
(View animation).DOHO is also seen in this animation.
Whenever one of these animations appears, hit the Launch button repeatedly for lots of mooing sounds. Do this for both of the ramps and then the next Video mode will be Cow Attack Video mode, where the
saucers has been replaced with mooing cows.

At very rare occasions one of the saucers in Saucer Attack Video mode will be replaced with the number 3. The smart bomb (see below) has no effect on the "3" and nothing happens when it reaches the ground, it just disappears below the horizon. The programmers added this easter egg as a "homage" to a bug in the ST:TNG video mode which replaces the items in the tunnels with a "3".

Shoot the same Martian during Martian Multiball five times consecutively. Skull from No Fear appears saying "Again!"

Smart bomb: Press Launch button during Video mode to clear screen (works only once).

Tournament mode: Insert credits and hold both flipperbuttons for a couple of  seconds before you press Start. The display will confirm that the next game will be in Tournament mode (Stroke of Luck award
will always be 50M).

"Eat at Eddy´s" can be seen on the backglass (designer Brian Eddy).

One of the default names in the Buy-In Score list is MOO.

The woman on the backglass is the secretary who worked in the reception at the WMS factory.

In the DMD animation for the Atomic Blaster Hurry Up there is a road sign passing by. This sign reads DOHO.

During Attract mode, press the following sequence:
B, 18L, 1R, 3L, 1R, 6L, 1R. That spells RCF and shows the credits for Attack from Mars.

AFM 1.13:
2L + 1R + 18L + 1R + 5L + 1R ; Moo sound, replaces video mode (ball in lane)
12L + 1R + 6L + 1R + 19L + 1R
1L + 1R + 2L + 1R + 3L + 1R
6L + 1R + 13L + 1R + 3L + 1R ; "18" (attract mode)

Enter the tag MOO in the high score list and a nice "moo" will be heard.

Put the game in Tournament mode by holding both flippers.
 

Batman Forever, SEGA 1995

Baywatch, SEGA 1995

A rare random award. One of the

bouncing boobie girls in the match sequence turns into a scary squid girl (looks more like a man).

Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrPs9-_5vmc

Black Rose, Bally 1992

Sometimes when the ball is in the jet bumpers, you can spot cows fencing on the display.

Sometimes when the Unlimited Millions round is started, you see many small cows.

Sometimes when you manage to achieve a Combo Shot, cows walk across the screen, moo´ing.

When hitting a broad-side and getting "Polly says", hit both flippers alot and it will say "Polly killed - 2 million points".

In sound test the last sound clip is labeled cow and a moo is heard.


Bram Stoker´s Dracula, Williams 1993

Hit the Start- or  Launch button when Dracula crosses his eyes.

Press both flipperbuttons when the Renfield animation is shown and he says "Master..." to award an extra 5M.

Get a high score and enter SUN. The display will read ”No not the sun, arghhh!”

 

Breakshot, Capcom 1996

Capcombo: Shoot around the Mini-loop, and then backwards around the right orbit to the rollover-lanes. You will now see a moose kick a cow in the behind.

The playfield ball rack lights intermittently spell out T, O, N, Y (Tony Defeo was one of the engineers). TONY also flashes during attract mode.
A flipper button sequence (which I don´t know of) encodes Tony´s birthday and starts a freak-out mode with video animation (involving Tony´s face), lights and solenoid pops.

At the end of a game, hold both flippers before and during the moose animation for a fun sound effect.

Centaur, Bally 1981

The names PATLA and GOLEN appear on the playfield below the flippers near the figure of a woman. Jim Patla designed the game and Emil Golen programmed it.
 

Champion Pub, Bally 1998

The 14th collected jackpot is a "Cow of a jackpot!".

Sometimes when the Barfly gets swatted, it will be a Cowfly and a "moo" is heard.

If you hear an insect buzzing when the heavy bag is hit, quickly hit the launch button. This will give you a Barfly, Cowfly or Bobfly. 100k and a Smart Punch is also awarded.

The boxing man assembly was modeled after programmer Duncan Brown.

Cirqus Voltaire, Bally 1997

Some of the obstacles in the Video mode are cows and at rare occasions a "3" is one of the obstacles.

One of the judges in the bonus sequence is a cow and another judge is called DOHO.

Sometimes when you hit the Ringmaster, a moo is heard.

A cow sometimes fly away as debree in the DMD animation for hitting the Ringmaster. Other debrees are bolts and pigeons.

There´s a cow on the backglass, above the acrobat to the right.

The Attract mode sound is a moo.

Enter MOO for initials in the high score table and the Ringmaster will pop up and say "moo!". (Game ROM rev. 2.0 home)

Sometimes the pie that hits the clown in the match animation is replaced with a cow, similar to the ones that Rooney jumps over in the Video mode.

Sometimes the 1´s digit on the display flips to a skull, a cow, a frog from Scared Stiff or a Tommy Ticket (from Ticket Tac Toe).

In the Attract mode´s history of the circus, a cow is mentioned in two places.

John Popadiuk can be seen as the Fabio-looking acrobat on the backglass.

In Attract mode, press one of these codes:
B, 3L, 10R, 19L, 1R (that spells CJS)
B, 16L, 1R, 2L, 1R (PAB)
B, 13L, 15R, 15L, 1R (MOO) Start a game directly after entering this code and the sound effect for hitting the first Ringmaster will be "moo".
B, 18L, 3R, 19L, 1R (RCS)
B, 7L, 7R, 3L, 1R (GGC)
B, 6L, 18R, 14L, 1R (FRN) Will perform a system reboot.

Congo, Williams 1995

During the Satellite Transfer, the first six or seven hits will get you various pictures of gorillas, diamonds and the like.  The eighth hit gives a cow that moo´s.  The next hit gives a duck that quacks, probably the Peking duck from Shadow.  After that comes the picture "move your car" from CFTBL, with the appropriate sampling.  Then follows the "Here's Your Hotdog" picture without the original sampling.

Start a game just before midnight to enable "Midnight Madness".

Enter MOO in the high score list to hear a nice "moo". If you also become Loop or Diamond Champion you´ll hear a second moo.
 

Corvette, Bally 1994

Before you plunge the ball into play, hit a flipper button to make the motor shake with a reving sound.

One of the tracks is the Holstein Track, and Holstein is a breed of cow.

When you start the "Catch me if you can"-sequence a car with one of four women drives up on the screen, but at rare occasions a cow drives the car instead, with the text "Moo" at the bottom of the screen.

Hit 2L, 1R, 2L before plunging. The control gate near the LT1 roll-over lanes will open, allowing the plunged ball to go to the upper flipper for a shot at the side ramp, or loop.
Hit 2R, 1L, 2R to close the gate again.

Creature From The Black Lagoon, Bally 1992

When the P-A-I-D targets are completed for the first time, keep your eyes on the lower right corner of the display when the animation is finished.

One of the awards you can get from the Snackbar is a hamburger.

Flipping the flippers when...
...the Snackbar opens awards "No more bad food" and the snackbar blows up.
...the Snackbar guy gives you the meny awards the quote "Come here, punk".
...the display reads "Knockout" after Video mode will give you a violent animation.

Just to the left of the Snackbar guy in the animation you can read HI DO HO.

When you shoot F in FILM (you get the picture with 2 people kissing) DOHO can be seen in the lower right corner of the display.

Between the flippers there's a Cadillac with the name "Trudeau" on it. This is the name of a designer.

If you tap both flippers when the project team is listed on the DMD you get the following message after all the members have been shown.
TO WHOM I OWE
A LOT, THX DAD

IN LOVING MEMORY
OF MY MOTHER

HELLO
CHRISTINE

There are two sound clips that are never used in the game, and they were apparently put in by the programmers just as jokes, never to be found. 
They are:
   * (HAL-type voice) "I'm sorry, Jeff.  Only five percent of available  (Not sure about the %).
     RAM can be accessed at this time."
   * (Boomy Announcer) "Jeff!  You are a weenie!"
 

Cue Ball Wizard, Gottlieb 1992

When in Curtain Video mode you can either find a moose/antilope worth 10M or a cow pie worth nothing. You can also find the head of Elvis Presley worth 20M, "You found the King, darlin´".

A weak ramp shot will get the quote, "What kind of cow pie shot was that?"
 

Cyclone, Williams 1988

A duck can be seen on the backglass and two cows can be seen on the playfield, near the "X" adv. light.

Demolition Man, Williams 1994

When using the trigger buttons as flipper buttons, all Combos made gives an extra million to the bonus.

Pressing both thumb buttons on the handles...
...during Multiball awards the next Jackpot as Secret Jackpot.
...when getting "Big Points/1M" at the top lock awards an "Eat at Joe´s" animation and 5M.
...and triggers when getting "Big Points/1M" at the top lock awards "WAG" and 10M.

The 8th AcMag award is an exploding cow.

A cow can be seen on the rotating icon panel for the top lock´s mystery award.

Getting the ball up the left inlane and into the Retina Scan saucer awards a 10M Huxley bonus.

With a ball in the shooting lane, press the launcher button on the left handle 4-5 times. Lenina Huxley will now say "What I wouldn't give for some action!" This only works once per game.

When you enable any multiball there's a DO on the bottom left of the display and a HO on the bottom right.

 When you shoot the Fortress multiball there's a DOHO in the display (on the right side in the hill). (View picture).

The backside of the cards during Poker has Gary Stern´s Face on it.
 

Hurricane, Williams 1991

Sometimes when you enter the lit Hurricane ramp, you can see a picture of a cow accompanied with a moo, you can also get a picture of a huge eye.

Sometimes the unlit Ferris Wheel will get you an inchworm or four ducks.

Sometimes, about every 30th game or so, when you hit the "Mystery" shot to start the spinning wheel, the voice that normally says "Thrills, Chills, Magic, Prizes" will instead be a weird voice (sounds like Qbert) that says "Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble".
If it happens the first time on a particular game, then it will make the saying again the next two or three times you hit the Mystery wheel. Then it will go back to the normal voice and normal phrase.

Indianapolis 500, Bally 1995

COW is spelt with the Spanner Targets.

The last souvenir is a cow.

In Wrong Turn you can see a cow in the farmer animation.

Sometimes a cow appears on the Pit Stop, being refuled/milked. You can also see this cow intentionally:
1. Advance the speedway light to Quick Pit, using the right ramp.
2. Light the Award Speedway light on the right loop.
3. Shoot the right loop.
4. Hit the Launch button rapidly when the animation starts. The cow appears!

Achieve a high score and enter the initials MOO to hear a mooing sound.

DOHO is spelt with the Spanner Targets, and is also sometimes seen in the skid/crasch animation in the Video mode.

Secret Skill Shot: Shooting the right ramp instead of the left during skill shot will start "Go for the Pole".

Launch button secrets: Pressing the launch button 5 times during either Dueling Drivers or Go for the Pole will spot a shot. Also pressing the launch button 5 times
while the car is zooming into the speedway award will enable the pit cow on ANY code, not just Quick Pit.

Flipper codes:
MAB: 13L, 1R, 2 Buy-in, Launch
CJS: 3L, 10R, 19 Buy-in, Launch
SIN: 19L, 9R, 14 Buy-in, Launch

Jack*Bot, Williams 1995

In the Attract mode, press the Extra Ball button when the display shows "In memory of Joe Joos jr.".
(Joe Joos jr. is the designer of many cool toys in pinball, i.e. the 5 bank target, catapult arm, Thing, and the ferris wheel).

The Extra Ball button will sometimes flash during the attract mode; if it does, press it to reveal a credits roll and the "story of development".

Watch the Keno card when you enter your name for a High Score.

Tapp the Extra Ball button while starting...
...Pinbot Poker to make Pinbot pull out an ace of clubs from his sleeve.
...Keno to get Pinbot to make all 25 squares match for 99,000,00.
...Slot machine to get Pinbot to change reels to "Light Extra Ball".
...Roll the Dice to get Pinbot to flip the dice to 12 x Dice Bonus.
...Casino Run to hear a cow moo, and now each shot to "spin the reels" during Casino Run changes the first bomb into another award (only works once per Casino Run).
...End of Ball Bonus (with 2x to 5x) to get an extra bonus multiplier.
These cheats are not sure to work all the time, but when they do you´ll hear Pinbot saying: "Look over there", "Look Hally's Comet", or "Look there's Rudy".

Cow: Sometimes a cow face can be seen on a reel during Casino Run.

On the backglass three star constellations can be seen, forming the letters "CFD", "DAD" and  "VLK".

Holding both flippers at the start of casino run gives a small chance on recieving a MK3 hint.
Mostly one can only spot the MK3 symbol rotating (when holding the flippers, otherwise not), but sometimes it will be awarded, too.

Johnny Mnemonic, Williams 1995

Start a game just before midnight to enable "Midnight Madness".
During Midnight Madness each shot you make shows a message in the display like: Bang, Zap, Crash, but also a "Moo!" is displayed and sometimes a "DOHO".

Cow 1: Sometimes during Midnight Madness a "Moo!" can be heard and seen on the display when a switch is hit. This only occurs once per multiball and +/- 50 % of the multiballs.

Cow 2: Wait long enough during attract mode and then press either one of the flipper buttons or the launch button. At random occasions you may hear a "Moo!".

Shoot the outer loops several times in a row and Skull from No Fear appears on the display screaming "again!".

The menu to the far right in the ball save animation is called DOHO.

Play the modes to
get all the Crazy Bob's items (Penex Doubler, Sinologic 16, Thompson
Eyephones,...).

The 8th and last item reward is 900M and there is a COW with sunglasses on the display!

Tournament Mode: press and hold both flipperbuttons for about 5 seconds during attract mode, then watch the display.

Crazy Bob is the owner of the computer shop at the saucer.


When you get the top Powerdown mode score, you get a DMD animation of the MCP Cone from the movie 'TRON' spinning & saying "you are the master of power down" using Steve Ritchie's enhanced voice.

When the Time Machine clock shows 3:33, hit both flippers three  times to start the Secret mode. If you wait until the machine shows you which random mission you get, and then
press the flippers three times, you get the random mission *and* the secret mission.


Sometimes when the crane hits the car targets, DOHO comes up on the display.

Push Start button during Saucer Attack Wave to clear the screen. The Saucer Attack Video Mode can sometimes be replaced with Cow Attack Video Mode, just as in Attack From Mars.
I don´t know how this is triggered, though. It might just be a random occasion.

Last Action Hero, Data East 1993

During the match animation, do the following sequence with the flippers: press right, press left, release right, release left. (Or the other way around left/right, perhaps.) If this works, it forces a match, giving you a free credit.
This is however suspected to have been removed from most of the tables available, so don't be surprised if it doesn't work.


Lethal Weapon 3, Data East 1992

Sometimes a cow will appear in the Video mode. Since the cow appearances is a Williams/Bally joke and this being a DataEast game the cow is worth 1M if you shoot it!

In the Attract mode, the instructions for the Video mode is: "Help Murtaugh make hamburger."
 

The Lord of The Rings, Stern 2003

Press the following sequence in Attract mode: 2L, 1R, 2L, 1R, 2L, 1R, 2L, 1R for a "secret message".

Then get bash Balrog from the mystery award on ball 3 or 3 vuk shots.

Enjoy bash Gary now!

If consolation Balrog is turned off, you won't see it.

If you start FOTR before you get it, you won't see it.


Flipper test: In attract mode with V9 software:

1R 4L 1R 4L 1R 4L 1R 4L


Then the flippers start alternating flips. You get out of it by starting a game.

The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot, Williams 1991

There is a Champagne glass on the translite.

The birthdays of people and family members associated with the making of the game show up on the display when the game is slam tilted or power cycled.  These birthdates show up only on the actual birthday.
These are the messsages as they appear on the segment displays. The only way to make these appear is to slam tilt the game OR enter and then exit test mode. This isn't the way it was intended to work. When games are hooked up to a debugger the power up message does not appear so the happy birthday message would come up on power up. When a game is on a ROM the power up message comes up and prevents the happy birthday message from happening. This was never noticed until after production, so it ended up more hidden than intended.

Ball in plunger lane from a ball start (won't work if you land in the lane while playing)...Hold the right flipper for at least 45 seconds.  Hold the left flipper for at least 45 seconds.  Hold BOTH flippers for at least 45 seconds and you will hear a small  BEEP sound to show that you did it correctly.   Now, Tap out the song starting with the right flipper.  Note: You must sing along or it will not work!

R - OLD.....L - MAC.....R - DON....L - ALD....R - HAD ...L - A...R - FARM.....Display will show:
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

L - AND...R - ON ....L - THIS .....R - FARM ....L - HE....R - HAD ...L - A Display will show (and the cow will moo):
COW. With a MOO MOO here and a MOO MOO there.HERE A MOO THERE A MOO EVERYWHERE A MOO MOO
Note: The timing between the RLRLRL is sensitive so tap consistantly as you sing or it will not all come up. You must also start the second verse while the EEEIIIIEEEIIIOOO is going on or you will not see the second part. Remember, time your taps as you would if you were singing it. You can do it as many times as you like by starting from the beginning of the song once it finishes. Once you shoot the ball into play you can't do it again until the next ball (must go through full sequence again).

The Bride that is on the side of the cabinet (both sides) has a human head drawn on the side of her breast plate. I don´t know who this is supposed to be.

One of the items you can shoot with the catapult is a cow.

A cow is seen on the backglass.

Shooting ramps consecutively will make Skull from No Fear appear. Skull is also one of the catapult attacks.

Sir Psycho declares "Again!" (from No Fear) randomly during castle demolition.

Mortal Kombat lines: shoot the right ramp two times in a row for "Toasty!", three times for "Fatality". Sometimes "I challenge you!" is heard.

In approximately the third or fourth round of Trolls, King Payne will shout "Get him! Now! Go!"
This is possibly a reference to the lines Khan says in The Shadow, when Mongol Hurry-up starts, which is "Find him, and kill him! All of you! Go!". The way he says this line is rather similar, which rouses suspicion.

Sometimes, when you start Trolls, the trolls will go "Trolls rule!" "Yeah! Rule the Universe!", a nod to the pinball game Attack From Mars.

Push Fire button during video mode to clear the screen of birds.

Tournament mode: Insert credits and hold both flipperbuttons for a couple of  seconds before you press Start. The display will confirm that the next game will be in Tournament mode (all random awards will be equal).

It is also possible to get people faces with button presses during attract mode. These are based on the drum beats.


Sam Zehr – a 32 flipper button sequence to the drumbeat of a Slayer song, it’s something like RLLRLLRLLRLLRLLRLRLRLLRLLRLLRLLRLRR.

There are also two DOHO´s: Watch the barbed wire on the far right of the backglass. No. 2 appears in the background of the New York mode, in the windows of one of the buildings.

Construction Mania: When you visit Bob´s Souvenir Bunker and the display shows the bunker with the sign "Uranium Ore $3 a Chunk" in the window, quickly hit both flippers twice.
All targets are now worth 3M for 20 seconds.

Secret Skill Shot: Plunge (or use the flippers) the ball into Bob´s Bunker before hitting any other switches. This awards "Bob´s Lotto" worth 500k.

Secret Video mode: Enter the High Score list (the daily High Score list will do as well) and press the following combination instead of your initials: B, 3R, 2L, 2R, 1L.
This only works if the billboard at Bob´s Bunker has displayed
"Hidden Video Mode: BRRRLLRRL" when visited. This isn´t really a Video mode but a cool thing nonetheless!

Fun Message: B, 8L, 1R, 5L, 1R, 5L, 1R, 6L, 2R. (works in attract mode as well as during gameplay). This code is also used in No Fear and ST: TNG, knowing this makes more sense to the message!

Achieve a high score and enter the initials TED.

The High Score initials are sometimes replaced with "TED" or "RED".

Sometimes the billboard at Bob´s Bunker reads "Frenzy? Bwa ha haa!".

Ted is heard saying "Officer Steve Speed!" during the Ohio mode where quotes from Getaway is used, a game designed by Steve Ritchie.

The red button is held by Pat Lawlor himself, sitting in a Corvette with the license-plate "Game Biz".

The "Rubber Nose" souvenir resembles the face of Roger Sharpe.

Two in-game quotes are an obvious loan from earlier Pat Lawlor (the designer) games:
Shoot into the BOZO hole when unlit and you will hear "It´s not plugged in man!" taken from The Addams Family.
The tilt quote is "Skate with the penguins at your own risk in The Ripley Zone!". Quite similar to the tilt quote in Twilight Zone!

Press the following sequence: 2L, 2R, 2L, 2R to see the credits.

When the animations for the start of video mode are running, tap the left, then the right, then the left flipper.. and keep going, but go slowly (what you want to avoid doing is hitting both flippers at once, since that will kill the egg).
If done right, the video mode display will appear but Cartman will be frozen in place, letting you easily complete the mode. You can start Cartman moving by hitting both flippers at once or waiting.
On "V-chip" roms (with the swearing removed) you may need to be quite quick on the flippers to do this, but it is still possible.

At very rare occasions the phrase "Move Your Car...pet!" can be heard.

Start Attract mode: keep right flipper button down, press left flipper button five times.

Stuff on the Backglass:

"Fullers II" at the bow of the sailing ship. Fullers II is a bar on the northwest side of Chicago.
"Karen LK Jack" at both sides of the bow of the sloop. Karen & Jack are the names on the dingy, they both bartend at Fullers II.
"Ketch u at Scotty's" on the beaker in the Sultans hand. Refers to Scott Ketchum.
He used to run Scotty's bar on Long Lake near Hayward in northwest Wisconsin.
"Freddy Jones" on the water pipe. Backglass artist Pat McMahon is a fan of theFreddy Jones Band, a local Chicago band
that has had some moderate success in the US.
"Bennet s" on one of the pots of gold just below the hero. Refers to Bennet Snyder, a plant worker who had more
than just a passing interest in belly dancers. He provided artist Pat McMahon with photos to aid in the costuming of the female figures.
"Maxi" on the other pot of gold. Actually just "Max", artist Pat McMahon´s nickname since grammer school.
"DZ" on the stirrup on the horse. Dave Zabriski, responsible for the music.
"JP" on the horses´ harness. John Papadiuk, game designer.
"J" on the thiefs´ jacket. J was the initial of the guy that artist Pat McMahon patterned the face after.

Stuff on the Playfield:

"taaSuts" (?) on the dagger on the ramp diverter plastic. Pat McMahon: "Think I misspelled this one. My spelling checker suggest tarsus, but I
consider a reference to a birds bone unlikely."
"Imax/Wade" on the Playfield at the base of the sword blade. "Imax", is actually just Max.(Pat´s nickname again.)
Pat McMahon: "I'm driving myself nuts trying to remember what, or who the hell Wade is."
"H.W. - the ball is wild" at the exit of the Jet return lane. A quote from Harry Williams.
"wade" near the head of the tiger in the loop. Wade is Wade Domet, a friend/mentor of John's from Toronto. Wade was on
the WCS94 backglass, he's shooting the ball in the net.
"DOHO" to the left of the right slingshot.
"zab" to the right of the left slingshot. Refers to Dave Zabriski.
"Pop 2nd" under the right slingshot. This one together with...
"Duke lnk" under the left slingshot could make Popadiuk.

Theatre of Magic, Bally 1995

In the Secret Ball Lock animation, you can spot DOHO in the lower left corner.

When you start a game, hold the left flipper button. The first Basement Award will now be Digital Pinball where player 1 plays for 40M, all other players play for Extra Ball.

Holding the right flipper button at the start of a game will activate MK3 Symbols. Spell THEATRE to reveal the symbols.

During the Metamorphosis mode, the woman sometimes transforms into a cow. In addition to this, you can also see the woman transform into the snack-bar guy from Creature From the Black Lagoon.
In this case, he says "Here's your hot dog!"

Shoot the Trunk three times in Hat Magic mode to make a telephone appear on the screen. "Move your car" is heard from it.


Bad Easter Egg:

During attract mode, hold both flippers down for over 30 seconds. If you don't hold them down long enough then you can't try this again right away. I'm not sure if a timer has to reset, or if a game as to play and end (or test mode enter/exit).

After you let go of both flipper buttons, at a relatively quick and constant clip enter the following flipper button presses:

10L , 10R , 2L , 2R

After the above sequence, code at $6948,37 (ROM Addr 0x5e948) jumps to code at $8D8C (ROM Addr 0x78d8c) which is the power-up vector! This is the address that CPU normally automatically jumps to at power-up (same as the last 2 bytes in the ROM 0x8D8C).
 

The Who´s Tommy Pinball Wizard, Data East 1994

Tommy mode: Hold the Buy-In button when starting a game to play an entire game with the blinders on.

After you've finished each BIP, press both flippers at the same time for a 1M - bonus award. Timing on this is tricky. It has to be performed at the end of your bonus count and before the next screen.

End a game with your score less than 2M below the replay score, and the game gives you the remaining 2M after the final bonus countdown with the message "Lyman Bonus". Lyman Sheats did the software programming.

Hitting the silverball on the right hand side so that the ball bounces off and hits the Mirror gives you the "Sigma Bonus" (Sigma is Keith Johnson, who used to run the online Pinball Archive).
 

Twilight Zone, Bally 1993

DOHO can be seen in the animation for the Jet Bumpers, look carefully at the radiator grill on the right car.

Quotes from older Pat Lawlor pins are heard during "Fast Lock", in reverse chronological order:
The Addams Family: Cousin It blabbing. Hitting lock: Cousin It: "Aaaah!".
Funhouse: "Hey, it´s only pinball!". Hitting lock: Rudy: "Gulp...ptooey!".
Whirlwind: "Return to your homes!". Hitting lock: "Do not panic".
Earthshaker: "It´s sunny drive time!". Hitting lock: "Ooh, Gimme shelter!".
Banzai Run: "Welcome race fans!". Hitting lock: "Go for the hill!".

Hit The Clock six times during "Clock Chaos" to hear Rudy from Funhouse: "Quit playin´ with the clock!".


If you score 25 million or more during Greed, at the end, you'll hear Rod Serling say "There. See what greed will get you?". This is a reference to the same line that Gomez says when you spell G-R-E-E-D a second time in one game in The Addams Family.

Cow 4: When you shoot "Disaster Drop" there's a display effect where you see a splash of water coming at you. At the end of the effect, when the water splashes, there it is: in the lower left corner of the display.
You have to look very carefully because you can only see it in a fraction of a second.

On the backglass, the man with the surprised look on his face is artist John Youssi.

The yeti is based on designer Dennis Nordman, he even has the photos where he modeled for it.

Watch the backglass as DOHO is written on the note in Nick Spades´ hand.

Tournament Mode: press and hold both flipperbuttons for about 5 seconds during attract mode, then watch the display.
