The Sonic the Hedgehog Series... I've got all the games, a bunch of little plush dolls, the complete archie comic book series, DVD's of the animated cartoons, and this thing that I saw for $7.99 at goodwill and could not resist.
Man that it is a sweet find!! I have tried to get into Sonic, since supposedly Bubsy was patterned off him. Just hasn't happened yet.
But yeh Bubsy is the one character I have had fun following. I think it is the way the internet has a way of dogging this character (because it is trendy to torch the Bubster...) Hey if you can't be famous, be infamous.
Here is my blog dedicated to the Bubster...
And I have a good collection of Bubsy going, and if there is anything else out there about the infamous platformer, would love to get it. I actually brought a SNES, Genesis, and Playstation just to play the other variants of Bubsy aside from the Jaguar game which is where I started.
And you'll also see below "Aliens vs. Bubsy" and "Atari Mascot Karts" where Bubsy is promoted as the Atari Jaguar mascot, or a what if at least. Someday I might try hacking Jaguar games (like people have hacked 2600 games) and make it where we see more of the Bubster. Would even like to see Bubsy make an appearance on the 7800 and Lynx. Give me five-ten years.. but for now I have fun with photoshop and I place them here on the Bubsy blog, which Atariage can brag is probably the best Bubsy fansite on the internet.
(There are two shirts shown below. The one that I am wearing is one I made with the Japanese Bubsy logo on the back. I have worn that to a few Anime conventions and they loved it. I made that since I could not find the original Bubsy shirt. And then the REAL Bubsy shirt showed up! That made my month. But I still think my shirt was much better.)
