Can you unlock purple Yoshi in Yoshi’s Story?

I know that most people don't remember Yoshi's Story fondly (gamers often criticized it for being too short and easy), but I had many a good time in the storybook world of that Nintendo 64 platformer.

Still, the seemingly innocent lack of a playable purple Yoshi always bothered me. I mean, he's all over the game's intro, so why can't I select him? Well, it turns out there are a lot of rumors on how to unlock not only purple Yoshi but a gold one as well.

GameTrailer's Pop Fiction series looks into this rumor, uncovering the truth behind the missing purple Yoshi.
