  1. There were some things I was not able to give away at the Atari show in September, but I am setting those aside for the next show whenever that is. And I might have some things to sell too? Not sure.
  2. How cool is the Atari PC? About as cool as the Portfolio... pretty cool.
  3. That would have been cool. At least an Arnold right? But as far as I can tell the Bubsy plushes were only made for the developers at Accolade, and made during the Bubsy 1 time frame. So when the Bubsy plushes were made, Arnold and the other characters were not in use. And later when Bubsy 2 was being developed, the fame of Bubsy was riding off the fumes of the first game, so no extra marketing money was spent on other plushes.
  4. Morning all, Always love Bubsy plush sightings, and here is another one that just came up... https://www.ebay.com/itm/294490086304?hash=item4490fa1ba0:g:cOoAAOSwpVJhdOaG More about this later, but check it out! 7 pm CST same day.... Well, the plush just sold. Looks like a best offer got this. And that is awesome. The description of the auction was: " ULTRA-RARE! IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND! The Ultimate Holy Grail of Bubsy The Bobcat Collectibles! Listing Includes: Bubsy The Bobcat Plushie Mini Cut-Out Bubsy Stand *INTACT & UNUSED* Bubsy Lapel Pin (Premium from CES 1993) Bubsy Coffee Mug Hello, I am the original owner of this rare collection. Everything you see in this listing is like-new / mint condition. All items have been stored carefully in a temp-controlled home for nearly 40 years. These items basically never become available to the retail public so don't miss your chance to be one of a handful of individuals to own this piece of video game history! If you are lucky enough to become the owner of this collection, I'll let you in on a little secret connected to these items. Your purchase will be packaged with great care within a sturdy cardboard box and bubble wrap. " Would love to hear the behind the scenes story if the buyer wants to share that to post here sometime. But to the buyer we Bubsy fans say congratulations! Here are the other pictures from that auction, and what is nice, we finally get a good picture of the tag on the plush: The other pictures... Also funny point, this Bubsy plush has traveled through time being 40 years old. 1993 was only 28 years ago for the rest of us. <---- With love from the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog!

  5. Today is Michael Berlyn's birthday! Wish him a great one at his Facebook page.. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004994478706 And from our friend and fellow blog staffer Sponge Fox!!
  6. Sooo... anyone have a Rayman save file (one with complete play through) that they'd like to share?
  7. I was doing something I hadn't gotten to do for months, just look for Bubsy stuff. Searched ebay, nothing new. Searched Google, found a few other good hits, and then, I just cruized through Reddit. Some fun stuff. Always happy to hear fan music of Bubsy. Most of the time I've picked up such tracks on Sound Cloud, but lots of treasure on Youtube. Naturally Reddit just points the way. Squanchy verses Bubsy... always a fun comparison. Actually had fun collecting Squanchy items the last few years alongside the Bubsy items. There was a lot of material that has been reposted by u/BubsyFanboy reposted. First of many was this... Wow Bozwell went from bumbling villain to scary villain. Kinda looses who Bozwell was IMHO. He also reposted a Disney version of the Busby logo for a Bubsy cartoon series in 2020 (a what if)... Here is a "Question of Character" for Bubsy that is a lot like a Brawndo commercial like those in "Idiocracy" if you remember that. Goofy fun. u/BubsyFanboy and r/the_Bubsy ask Which stage do you consider the most memorable in the Bubsy franchise? Would be interesting to hear more answers to that one. Our ole pal SpongeFox makes an appearance... And other artists.. This is interesting... apparently a repackage of a Paws on Fire in a PS4 pKG form? This would be interesting to hear more about. Here is are links by r/BubsyTheodoreBobcat which has some interesting videos, such as a high res video of Super Bubsy, and a two player game of Bubsy 3D. Some fun Bubsy material and other videos: Here is an article of Bubsy love... Posted by u/watchdogzz 4 months ago Can we get some appreciation for Bubsy 1 and 2? [Discussion] I know it's trendy to hate on these games nowadays but I enjoyed the hell out of them as a kid, I can understand why some were dissapointed in the games if you were reading gaming magazines and got subjected to months of hype like Jirard the Completionist was. But I didn't have that problem as I didn't start reading gaming magazines until the 2000s so I never got subjected to any of the Bubsy hype, it and its sequel were just two of several Genesis games I inherited from my cousin so I had no real expectations for the game going in. But I have to say they both impressed me, they were no Sonic that's for sure but I found them engaging enough that I memorized all the levels pretty much inside and out and knew where all the hidden lives, continues and bonus stages were, i'd always try to get every single Yarn ball and marble I possibly could. At first I died a lot but I got pretty good eventually once I learned I could press both A and B at the same time and make a high jump and glide afterwards and I could make huge leaps to skip over tough parts of a level sometimes. I quite liked how the levels were designed especially in the first game, the train/canyon levels were my favorite as i'd never seen levels split into two distinct parts like that before and I especially loved exploring the gopher holes, it blew my mind seeing that whole network of tunnels in the 9th level with all the hidden goodies. I found the river levels the most difficult because of the sheer gauntlet of obstacles you have to deal with and having to stay on the raft and react to everything coming your way. The 2nd game took a bit longer to warm up for me until I learned about the item shop when to best use the nerf gun and the flash-bombs(or whatever they are called) and it took me a while to be able to beat Grand Tour mode but it was worth it, I know the creator of the first game had nothing to do with part 2 and the main designer apparently hated working on it, but I never would've guessed from playing it as it feels like a logical step forward. I also rather enjoyed the music in the series, particularly the carnival theme in the first game and the final boss theme in part 2(I also have to say I think the Genesis version sounds better than the SNES version) Anyone else think these games unfairly get a bad rap? And that is what I found for reddit entries for the last year or two. There were other comments, polls, and other things past. Fun seeing what was reposted or even posted for the first time here.
  8. Hey Bubsy fans!! Just wanted to say you know what the scariest part of Halloween will be this year? NO NEW BUBSY RELEASE!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!! Well, to us Bubsy fans at least. We got a nice release with Bubsy 3D, then much later with Woolies Strike Back... Then we got an announcement at least for Paws On Fire a couple of years later... And well, Bubsy and Halloween go great together. So Accolade, make sure we have some Bubsy with NEXT Halloween ok pals? To all of you.. Here are some more fan pictures of Bubsy getting in the spirit of Halloween... Love it!! For me, Halloween comes on my birthday month, which this year came with moving to a new house. One thing that makes it all less scary is getting my Bubsy collection set back up! In the end, have a great one out there, and enjoy lots of scary fun! Here is one from friend and fellow blog staffer Sponge Fox!! I think I enjoy Halloween because the more imperfect it is, the more fun it is. A lot like Bubsy! Until next time! Question for you fans... what is your favorite halloween candy? For Doctor Clu ... Candy Corn!
  9. Bubsy Bubsy Bubsy... Bobcat!

      Well if you short sold FB earlier, it'd be Great news!   And time to close on the position, but I don't trade on margin...

  11. Checked my mail yesterday, which the mailbox is now an hour from where I live since I just moved. Wasn't there yesterday, guess I get to wait a week before I get to hear the soundtrack (which was the main reason I bought the all in one pack) Looking forward to it.
  12. Never for Halloween. I know, I'm shocked too. It has been cool the Bubsy advertisements that Accolade did for Bubsy for the last two games for Halloween. For Woolies Strike Back they did this one... For Paws on Fire they featured this one with all the playable characters on Twitter... https://twitter.com/BubsyThe_Bobcat/status/1057439917444259840 It is obvious the promo people for Bubsy were big Marvel fans as he keeps dressing in Marvel costumes ...
  13. Gotten in about a game a month lately. The scores below were made since I got the Game Drive. Bubsy doesn't have numbers for the high score, much like Joust I found out last night, so I use letters for numbers. I = 1 Z = 2 E = 3 F = 4 S = 5 G = 6 L = 7 B = 8 P = 9 Just moved, but for the first time since the move in I zipped through a game. Having played Bubsy here, it is officially now home.
  14. Could take the disc once you get it, rip it, and make a GD support file.
  15. There is a tribute to Nukey Shay, who has sadly recently passed, which will be done by the Zero Page Homebrew folk on September 28th. More info about it here... Let them know in that thread which games and ports Nukey Shay did that you liked. I said the Star Raiders hack, but there were so many.
  16. I like how Nukey fixed a lot of games to work on the Atari Flashback Portable, and for the Super Charger. I think if there was one game I like, and still play, it is the Star Raiders hack that uses the switches on the Flashback Portable or regular Atari 2600, rather than needing a keyboard controller:

      We decided to take advantage of the market really.   House of 18 years was worth more than twice what we paid for it.   Sold house, paid off mortgage and completely paid off new house.  :D   New city is nice, getting to try out a new place.  Been fun.

      Cool...good luck in your new digs.  Remind me where you moved from?

      I lived in South, Dallas so only moved less than an hour away.  But it is more quiet, lower taxes, and people are a bit friendlier here.

       

  18. Nukey was so talented, and helped out so much on 2600 hacks. Rest in peace Atarian and friend.
  19. Saw a commercial for this and ... wow, what a creative way to get kids to create video games, or at least the concepts, and then have them work. Here is the site for it... https://www.pixicade.com/?utm_source=bing&medium=cpc&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Pixicade (Search) - AdFeeds Managed&utm_term=pixicade&utm_content=Brand Keywords
  20. That was a wonderful event John and everyone! Came with perfect timing for me as I looked to regift things before moving. That said, might have some more freebies next meeting, but nothing like this time. The meeting was a nice oasis of seeing people in a desert of isolation. Can totally relate to the awkwardness. Think we all can.
  21. So I was looking at the Headstart this morning. Some fun pictures for everyone else... Monitor all boxed up and ready to go... Has this cool Gui that was shown in this channel.. And here is a quick video I made of the Headstart. It was already quite yellowed when I saved it from the garbage in my town.. Cool computer though. Also I found a more regular PC looking Headstart and saved the hard drive and driver board from it. I wondered if I would get a hard drive working in the Headstart Explorer as it looks like it has a bay for it. I had a bunch of other cards and items that may or may not be important. Some came from the other Headstart and others might just be from other friend's computers of that time. You are welcome to look through these and let me know if any look interesting. If not, e-cycle time. Other Cards.zip
  22. Ok, a lot has been e-cycled, but not the G4. PM me an address and we'll get that ready for shipping.
