So in the past we've talked about the Bubsy plush that the Accolade developers had as a promotional item during the development of Bubsy 1 and Bubsy II. And we talked about it in 2010, 2013, and this one and that one in 2019. At this time, ten known in the world to still exist.
Earlier this year a Bubsy plush came up on ebay, which I went ahead and bought. A decade long dream come true.
And today with all the #Stayhome things going on...
... I finally got around to the purpose I bought the Bubsy plush for in the first place: To study it and share my findings. Afterall, as the Dungeon Master once said in the D&D cartoon, "The man who knows and never tells is as good as the man who never knew."
This morning I VERY roughly mapped a pattern for the Bubsy plush using frog tape. For those that don't know, frog tape is what you lay down to keep something from being painted. Just sticky enough to apply, but not so sticky that it can't be removed easily. Basically a post-it-note in tape form.
And from that, I got the results that you see below.
So if you wanted to try to assemble a Bubsy plush, well, this will point you in the right direction though I am no fashion designer. But this and the pictures of the plush I've included should give you a pretty good idea of what it looks like, and the scale of the plush.
Until next time I wish you well, and say "Fashion designers' license? What for?!"
