Super Bubsy version of a cartoon
In 1997, Accolade released a new game called Super Bubsy.
It's a remake of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. It was released on Windows 95.
The most interesting part of this game is collecting TVs. If you collect 20 TVs, you will get to see the whole Bubsy cartoon.
The upload on YouTube
A Youtuber named geekzila uploaded the whole thing on August 13th 2012. It got very popular and lots of people talked about it.
However, he is not the first person to upload Bubsy cartoon. That would be doctorclu, who uploaded them six years earlier than him. Two parts we're uploaded on July 14th 2006 and other two we're uploaded on November 19th 2006.

Maybe geekzila found those videos and put them together in one video. We don't know, if it's true, maybe it is.
Anyway, it makes sense, that it was found from Super Bubsy, since finding it was hard at that time. It wasn't released in any VHSes, nor in DVDs. And the only one who has it is on the Super Bubsy game. And besides, not a single person had recorded it from TV, when it aired.
The TV version of a cartoon
That is until in 2017, when a youtuber named areyoustilllistening uploaded a video called "Bubsy Pilot - What Could Possibly Go Wrong? (With Original Commercials)"
How do we know, that it was recorded from TV? Well in this video, the logo of FOX53 shows up, so it looks like it was recorded from TV:
That's where we also found out on which channel was aired.
Super Bubsy version vs TV version
What's really interesting is that, the Super Bubsy version is longer than the TV version. It's 24 minutes long and the TV version is 21 minutes long.
They cut a lot of scenes, sometimes even changed the music. They even changed the lines and voices on the parts, when they go "After these messages!"
Here's the compilation:
Now, here's a theory. The Super Bubsy version was supposed to be aired on TV, but they cut some of the parts out, because they thought, that it was too long, probably too much time taken for the commercial time, so they made it shorter. We are not sure, why they changed the part, when they go "After these messages!" but it kinda makes sense.
