So what's the story about Cabbage Patch Kids?

It is a KONAMI game but copyrighted by OAA, INC. ?????

I think that screenshot is from the Zemmix/Zemina version

Nope, the Zemmix version has no copyright statement at all.
On the original Konami cart you can see this:

I have checked my copy for this and you're right.
It says (c) OAA on the cartridge and it is also stated on the box.
Didn't noticed it before...

I guess OAA, whatever it stands for, develloped the game and Konami published it.

No, Cabbage Patch Kids is from 'Original Appalachian Artworks Inc. (OAA)' (see here). Google is your friend :)

My guess is that OAA Inc. makes a serie of toys called Cabbage Patch Kids and it associated with Konami to create a game with the characters.

Konami shamelessly used code from Athletic Land. Tongue

Okay, that would explain it.

I was a bit scared that OAA made the game (in 1983), and that Konami bought it, changed it to Athletic land (RC700 - 1984), and later published the original too (RC716 - 1984)

But that probebly isn't the case, looking at the Cabbage Patch Kids site, and reading Leandro's and manuel's reactions.
