The John F. Kennedy Space Center (usually just referred to as the Kennedy Space Center), named in honor of president John F. Kennedy, is a launch facility for spacecraft, located on the east coast of Florida.
In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Life's Ruff", Hip and Hop Koopa, who were running amuck in Miami, having already turned Luigi and King Windbag into dogs, heard a report on the radio about a space shuttle that was going to launch from the Kennedy Space Center the next morning. Wanting to get into even more mischief, the twins decided to check it out.
Thanks to a report on the TV, Luigi was informed of Hip and Hop's reckless driving, and learned that they were heading to the Kennedy Space Center. When Luigi and King Windbag reached the center, they were unable to leap over the tall fence. Instead, King Windbag figured that they should dig under it, seeing as how they were dogs.
Meanwhile, Hip and Hop used King Windbag's wand to put two human astronauts to sleep, so that they could steal their space suits, and eventually board the space shuttle. Herman the dog catcher showed up at the space center to round up Luigi and King Windbag, but they managed to trick Herman into trying himself up with his own rope by running circles around him quickly.
With Herman out of the way, King Windbag succeeded in tackling Hip and Hop, and stopped them from boarding the space shuttle. Luigi got King Windbag's stolen wand back, and he used it to send the Koopalings back home. King Windbag then turned Herman into a poodle for a few seconds, so that he would better understand how dogs felt. After creating another Warp Zone, King Windbag and Luigi returned to Ice Land.
