Probably the modified version, by the original programmer, called Flying Brassiers.

Interesting history of ColecoVision Moon Patrol by original programmer: http://www.colecovis...householder.htm

 

And original programmers' comment from YouTube: https://www.youtube....h?v=MzmKbAh4RUY

 

"I'm the one who coded Matt/Moon Patrol for the ColecoVision 30 years ago. When the game was canceled by Atari in March of 1984, I burned a few EPROM "comedy" copies for a few Atari colleagues: including Selma, who was responsible for box and manual (for which I have the approved final text) and Helyette, who was the play-tester. Selma was canned before I saw her again -- so, I kept that copy. Eventually, a ColecoVision collector talked me into giving him an EPROM copy of the "SELMA presents MATT PATROL". Ultimately, it was posted to the interwebs..."
