27 Days till Bubsy Launch (and introducing Squanchy)
Bubsy Bubsy Bobcat The Woolies Strike Back Squanchy Rick and Morty Squanch
For Bubsy fans we live in exciting times: The Days before the launch of Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back.
There have been times since the launch of this Bubsy Bobcat fan blog in 2008 that I would search the internet and maybe find one new picture of Bubsy, but I am happy to say that is not the case now.
Going forward till the launch of Bubsy and after I will be featuring the excitement of those going into this game, initial thoughts, and reviews. And I will post some of the fun things as I find them. Others are welcome to PM me with submissions as well.
So here are some fun pictures I found yesterday:
Some context for this one:
"James Nicholas Stanton, better known by his pen name Jim Sterling, is a British freelance video game journalist, critic, and pundit."
Here are a few others I've been meaning to post for a little bit...
Some really cool art. I wonder if this was the add for Bubsy 2 originally?
"Bubsy Hashtag on Twitter" was all I got for this one.
Every so often a new piece of swag shows up from the Bubsy 1 and 2 days since there was not any real swag from Bubsy (3) Fractured Furry Tales or Bubsy 3D. Hopefully we'll see more swag for Bubsy (5) The Woolies Strike Back.
Alright, and this last part is for fun.
I have recently gotten into the cartoon series "Rick and Morty" on adult swim. In that series there is a character, a old friend of Rick's named Squanchy that is a obnoxious talking and walking cat. Obnoxious but cool. So far no talking to the 4th wall like Bubsy, but otherwise you look at this character and say things like...
Fun stuff. So as I come across some Squanchy stuff, I will share it here. So far I have found the following:
This was a T-Shirt that you could find here, but the link seems to be down?
Two interesting "facts" from this fan wiki
1) Squanchy might be dead. But then we didn't see him die, and you know what they say in comics... "no body, no death. Oh there was a body? It was a clone..."
2) Squanchy might have been based on Snarf from Thundercats. Can see that, but the party animal with attitude is definitely Bubsy inspired. But then animorphic cats are quite common.
We've featured at least two other characters (Magic Cat, and the Fox animal network mascot in Japan) that greatly resemble Bubsy. All we can say is, always fun to see a character that is similar and what others do with it.
In Rick and Morty Squanchy is a old friend of Rick's. Obnoxious but a liked character. And in the end, quite heroic. I'm hoping we haven't seen the last of Squanchy.
Hahah... this reviewer says about the same thing...
And I'll leave with this epic picture...
