The entrance to this world is located in the Graveyard section of Gruntilda's Lair; this area is past the "Lava Room" on the sixth floor of Gruntilda's Lair. Its picture is located on the seventh floor, specifically the third room you enter through underwater passages. The picture requires 10 Jiggies to complete.

|No.||Official title (Player's Guide)||Description|
|1||Out of the Fire||Ascend to the very top of the mansion and fall through the chimney. Once inside, jump across the chairs onto the dining table without landing on the creaky floor below. Once on the table, simply walk through Napper to collect the Jiggy. If the player attempts to enter this room through the front entrance or the player lands on the floor, Napper will solidify and the Jiggy will be unobtainable until the duo leaves the room.|
|2||Ouija Help?||Banjo and Kazooie must enter the Haunted Shack, which has a floor highly reminiscent of a Ouija board, and it has tiles placed at the ends of the walls. Here, Banjo must hop onto Tumblar to start the challenge. Tumblar acts as the planchette on the board, and with the , the player can move both Tumblar and Banjo to the different letter tiles placed around the board. Most of the tiles depict Grunty's face, but others show a letter. The objective is to spell BANJOKAZOOIE within 75 seconds. Each tile can only be used once. During the challenge, a purple Tee-hee, who is capable of respawning, appears and circles around the room. If Banjo moves Tumblar onto a Grunty tile or he gets hit by the Tee-hee, he loses a Honeycomb and gets knocked off Tumblar. Once Banjo spells out BANJOKAZOOIE, Tumblar leaves and releases the Jiggy inside of him.
|3||Barrel Buster||Beak Bust the hatch leading into the cellar just outside the churchyard gate. Inside the cellar, break open the southernmost barrel on the left to find the Jiggy.|
|4||A Few Parting Gifts||Around the churchyard are 5 brown pots. Kazooie must shoot eggs from out of her behind into each pot, which causes a Jiggy to pop out of the last one.|
|5||Well Worth It||A Jiggy is located inside the well. This Jiggy is accessible as Banjo or the Pumpkin transformation.|
|6||A Draining Affair||Using the same ramp from the previous Jiggy, access the second floor of the mansion as the Pumpkin and locate a small hole on one of the corners of the gutters. Sit still on the hole and you will fall into the basin below. The airborne Jiggy will be collected as you drop in.|
|7||Here's the Steeple||At the top of the Church's tower. Use the gravestone near the entrance to climb up.|
|8||Organ Lesson||Banjo and Kazooie must enter the church by using Beak Buster on a clock switch near the Blue Jinjo and rush into the entrance using the Turbo Trainers. Along the way, the duo must break down the gate leading into the churchyard. Once inside, Banjo and Kazooie must climb up to the organ's scoresheet. Motzand then begins to playing keys on a pipe organ. The duo must Beak Buster the keys he plays in the order he plays them. The first song consists of 5 notes: G, D, C#, A (down), F (up), and the second song consists 10 notes: A#, F# (up), D#, A (down), D, C#, A, F (up), B, D#. If Banjo and Kazooie hit a wrong key, they take a honeycomb of damage, but they can continue without restarting. Once Banjo and Kazooie have cleared two sessions, Motzand dissipates, and a Jiggy appears on top of the pipe organ.|
|9||Potty Mouth||Break open the window on the second floor, using a Rat-a-tat-rap, that leads into the bathroom. Afterwards, transform into the Pumpkin and ascend to the second floor of the mansion (a small gap near the hedge maze in the churchyard leads to a ramp, granting access to the second floor and is also required for Jiggy #9). Enter the bathroom and jump into Loggo. You will be flushed into the sewers and the Jiggy will be between several Whipcracks and Grille Chompas.|
|10||The Jinjos Five||Rescue all five Jinjos.|
|On a fountain near the world entrance. A Shock Spring Pad is required for reaching it.|
|On top of the mansion.|
|At the far corner of a hedge maze.|
|In the third barrel on the right in the cellar.|
|On top of the canopy bed, located from a third floor window. It can be reached from a Shock Spring Pad.|

- Hovering over the wooden rafters inside the church.
- Located on the rafters of the church. This spawns a Jiggy in one of the eyes of the big Grunty statue on the sixth floor of Gruntilda's Lair (the room with cobwebs).

1 - Due to a mistake in the programming of event flags, the game treats two Mumbo Tokens as the same one, meaning that collecting one will cause the other to disappear. This essentially means there are a total of 116 Mumbo Tokens in the game, though only 115 are obtainable.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
- “Spine-tingling area of Banjo-Kazooie where our heroes met Loggo, a dozing ghost called Napper and an organ-playing spectral hand named Motzand. Was it Grunty's holiday home? Who knows?”
- —Banjoland description
Though it does not physically appear in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, an incomplete replica of the mansion appears in Banjoland, along with its own graveyard. Its nature of incompleteness is also referenced by Bottles, as in one of the missions, you were supposed to complete the mansion exhibit by lifting the pieces with the wrench and placing them on the square shaped white patch. However, this was ultimately scrapped and an air race took its place instead. He even states that the delivery van that had mailed the parts had accidentally emptied them into Loggo and they went straight to the Cut For Deadlines Room.

- Because of the way the Flower Urns talk, people often mistakenly hear the pots say something else of vulgar nature. Rare Ltd. has mentioned that this is untrue and that the pots merely say "Thank you." Grant Kirkhope, the voice actor of the urns, confirmed this on a special episode of "Game Grumps," called "Guest Grumps," on YouTube. He also stated that it took many takes before the current utterance of "Thank you" was accepted as being clearly audible.
