There are four days left on the Bubsy kickstarter to raise $25,000. So far the counter is at $16,204 Which is actually impressive when you do the math and realize Bubsy has 405 backers! To help with this Bubsy fan Rusty Everhart has doned the Bubsy costume for some promotional moments to advertise for the kickstarter:
At the very least the kickstarter has shown that Bubsy does indeed have some dedicated followers. You can check out the kickstarter here: https://www.kickstar
A quick mention of a sales flyer on ebay that is featured as I write this with a unique Bubsy signature and paw print Auction can be found here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Accolade-Video-Games-Sales-Brochure-1990s-Sega-Genesis-Super-Nintendo-Bubsy/303057668589?hash=item468fa509ed:g:4jAAAOSwJrdcYHJz
So some fun events happening as Bubsy continues to build support in the kickstarter for more features in Bubsy: Paws on Fire (to be released in April).
Here are the tweets: (This has been revised as of the morning of February 10th)
In the kickstarter video one viewer was able to translate the binary code shown...
Also apparently in the initial kickstarter video Bubsy was rated "M" for Mature which sparked a lot of talk for a few days:
Apparently the original vid
Bubsy has a kickstarter for the next game coming out. Really exciting stuff, check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bubsy/bubsy-paws-on-fire-spicy-extras Original blog entry here: http://atariage.com/forums/blog/234/entry-15490-bubsy-kickstarter-for-paws-on-fire-february-2019/
Today we have a late Halloween edition. As I was recording play throughs of Woolies Strike Back I came across a glitch. I hit the button for the screenshots or recordings after selecting a level. The level would load and come up in the wait screen. On certain levels (shown below) instead of a Woolie you get a winged/horned creature with arms. Once you start the level the character turns into a Woolie and everything is normal from there.
So more than likely this is a throw back to
Good morning! So the news of the 6th Bubsy game "Paws on Fire" has stirred up some excitement on Facebook, Instagram, Linked In, and it is always fun to see the activity on Twitter. These are locations that Bubsy news sent out, Bubsy fans are talking, and "Bubsy" himself tends to show up from time to time. There are other places like Discord that I keep getting notifications from but I have no idea how to use. . There is the Bubsy Bobcat group on DeviantArt. There are also Bubsy convers
Was searching for a Bubsy figure... why... oh yeh, waiting for the Bubsy pop figure... but in the meantime I found someone making a 3D print of a Bubsy figure. Cool. I ordered one, can give a review on that when it comes in. https://www.shapeways.com/product/CGMXYLAUU/bubsy-3d-could-ve-been-a-lot-better?optionId=60402261&li=ostatus
I've often joked Bubsy was "The hit points of Mario with the speed of Sonic" I think Bubsy actually owes just as much to Mario as he does to Sonic for the inspiration. And today, the inspiration for Mario passed away. https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-46072339?fbclid=IwAR2W8OwHzU3s28cfWOT85P6WfrHQCjgU2uGKYQhA4RVVlpy3VLkuspRGOSE I originally heard the news at this other blog: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/284642-not-atari-but-super-mario-the-real-life-guy-dies/ Rest in peace Mari

There are some promo books on eBay that I have not seen before. Basically two sets are available: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1993-SNES-SEGA-Mega-Drive-Ad-Booklet-BUBSY-Gods-Speed-Racer-Brett-Hull-Hockey/283224638872?_trkparms=aid%3D555017%26algo%3DPL.CASSINI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20170221125817%26meid%3D568ecf64e1ef4a1db77478c79544809d%26pid%3D100754%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26%26itm%3D283224638872&_trksid=p2045573.c100754.m4842 https://www.ebay.com/itm/1994-SNES-SEGA-Mega-Drive-Accolade-Vintage-Pro
I wrote this to "Bubsy" on Twitter:
So above all, not bad. A year later Bubsy is still $19.99 for a used copy, and $29.99 for a new copy at Game Stop. The leaderboards on Steam and Playstation are still active. Woolies Strike Back may be a relatively easy game to get through, most can get through in a little more than an hour; however, moving up in the leaderboards requires skills and tricks that take much longer.
As any (good) game. Easy to learn, difficult to master. I th
Tomorrow is Michael Berlyn's * birthday, so wish him happy birthday Bubsy fans!!

So SpongeFox, another admin of the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog, came up with this great art recently... More art from other artists to come. But the submission from SpongeFox reminds me of this great video from the Nostalgia Critic. Rob Paulsen as some may recall did the voice for Bubsy in the animated pilot. Not something he is reported to be crazy about, but we like him anyway. (and I think he did an excellent Bubsy, only recently surpassed by the Woolies Strike Back Bubsy voice.) E

Saw this as I was looking for Pixel Chat (story from a few years ago about Bubsy as a talk show host and I found this gem on a Minecraft site... https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/bubsy-pixel-art/ I was like, how have I not seen this before. It wasn't till I saw this picture... ,,, that I said "Oh, that explains that weird Salavador Dali look. It was a work in progress... got it!"

Wow, Bubsy Bobcat rocks being him with 2,136,899,180 on Steam. ** It's good to know the programmers apparently. **
Bubsy the Woolies Strike Back as I have found is moderately easy to complete, but difficult to master. And then you compete against other Bubsy players and naturally this goes to a whole new level.
Had some fun playing on the leaderboards. I achieved 54th place out of 1,000 on the PS4 leaderboard. I've had fun making friends with other players and talking back and for
Have we ever posted something from Facebook? Maybe not. So today is a first for the Bubsy Bobcat Fan blog. First off there is the title picture where we have this raft that looks like a coffin and instantly the thought came up of Bubsy 3d: Bubsy visits the James Turrell Retrospective
The parody is liked for a lot of reasons, one of them being they actually had better 3D controls than the Bubsy 3D from 1995. The parody was liked so much that it was even referenced in another Bubsy fan g
This picture alone raises so many questions in the Bubsy story and wanted to other fan theories.
The picture looks old, obviously a newspaper clipping. Was this an uncle of Bubsy or father?
My guess is the father. In the Purrfect Edition Bubsy has the Indiana Jones look on the postcard. The Sean Connery looking bobcat in the picture would be his father if we go with the Indiana Jones theme. Any theories on this?
