  1. Morning Bubsy fans, Cruiz'in twitter this morning I was happy to see that "Bubsy" (the person playing him at Accloade) was still making comments from time to time. This one cracked me up for starters... There is still Bubsy eyeballing the swag that Sonic gets, which sadly I feel his pain as I would like to see more Bubsy merchandise too. So he's still out there. Over all the reviews of Woolies Strike Back there were many that thought the twitter activity was brilliant so keep it up, just keep it up Accolade! Also on Twitter I had this fan picture sent to me: Like the Bubsy picture. And I guess that is me next to Bubsy? Looked like Animal from the Muppets at first. Then I remembered my current avatar for Twitter is my Bubsy character from the Atari 2600 hack I did last December "The Bubsy Holiday Special". The red cap on Bubsy was a fun difference. So.. ok on the picture. Hope everyone is doing well out there!
  2. Hey Bubsy fans, to continue to be the Bubsy 101 (as the Bubsy on Twitter called this place), I'm happy to another another Bubsy fan posting some cool Bubsy material. Blog is run by Lefty1430 and not bad. Can be found here.... http://atariage.com/forums/index.php?app=blog&module=post&section=post&do=showform&blogid=234 This probably describes it best: In tribute to your new blog I present "The Return of the Bobcat" fan soundtrack by Aizakku Horooee. I adore the track 13 minutes in. Carry on fellow Bubsy fan. We actually do exist.
  3. Finally the review you've all been waiting for: the review of Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back by Bubsy fans for Bubsy fans! How does this new game compare to previous Bubsy games, how does it rank (by the reviewer's humble opinion), and what are the challenges faced in collecting all the items/yarnballs? Talks about the levels between the tutorial and the first boss level. Watch it here...
  4. Contest: First person to PM me a message with the correct name of the arcade machine photo altered in the picture below wins the Humble Bumble deal on Steam (Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back and Bubsy Two Fur) or $20. Originally I listed the above picture on Twitter by saying (and some more clues for this contest...) "Hey #BubsyNation was at Free Play in Arlington, Texas and was amazed to find the @BubsyThe_Bobcat Russian arcade game. It was the coolest game I never played." I of course revealed a hour or so later that there was a Russian home version of Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (And Bubsy 2) but not a arcade game. Just had some fun photo editing which turned into a contest. (Contest provided in fun solely by the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog) --------------- Here is more information of the Humble Bumble deal going on for the next eight days.... https://www.humblebundle.com/store/bubsy-the-woolies-strike-back
  5. For Bubsy fans we live in exciting times: The Days before the launch of Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. There have been times since the launch of this Bubsy Bobcat fan blog in 2008 that I would search the internet and maybe find one new picture of Bubsy, but I am happy to say that is not the case now. Going forward till the launch of Bubsy and after I will be featuring the excitement of those going into this game, initial thoughts, and reviews. And I will post some of the fun things as I find them. Others are welcome to PM me with submissions as well. So here are some fun pictures I found yesterday: Some context for this one: "James Nicholas Stanton, better known by his pen name Jim Sterling, is a British freelance video game journalist, critic, and pundit." Funny picture. Here are a few others I've been meaning to post for a little bit... Some really cool art. I wonder if this was the add for Bubsy 2 originally? "Bubsy Hashtag on Twitter" was all I got for this one. Every so often a new piece of swag shows up from the Bubsy 1 and 2 days since there was not any real swag from Bubsy (3) Fractured Furry Tales or Bubsy 3D. Hopefully we'll see more swag for Bubsy (5) The Woolies Strike Back. Alright, and this last part is for fun. I have recently gotten into the cartoon series "Rick and Morty" on adult swim. In that series there is a character, a old friend of Rick's named Squanchy that is a obnoxious talking and walking cat. Obnoxious but cool. So far no talking to the 4th wall like Bubsy, but otherwise you look at this character and say things like... Fun stuff. So as I come across some Squanchy stuff, I will share it here. So far I have found the following: This was a T-Shirt that you could find here, but the link seems to be down? https://pixelpoptees.com/products/get-your-squanch-on Two interesting "facts" from this fan wiki 1) Squanchy might be dead. But then we didn't see him die, and you know what they say in comics... "no body, no death. Oh there was a body? It was a clone..." 2) Squanchy might have been based on Snarf from Thundercats. Can see that, but the party animal with attitude is definitely Bubsy inspired. But then animorphic cats are quite common. We've featured at least two other characters (Magic Cat, and the Fox animal network mascot in Japan) that greatly resemble Bubsy. All we can say is, always fun to see a character that is similar and what others do with it. In Rick and Morty Squanchy is a old friend of Rick's. Obnoxious but a liked character. And in the end, quite heroic. I'm hoping we haven't seen the last of Squanchy. Hahah... this reviewer says about the same thing... And I'll leave with this epic picture...
  6. Thanks to Sponge Fox we have this great happy birthday greeting for Rob Paulsen... only 15 days late! (Ooops! Sorry Rob) It is funny how I believe it was around his birthday I popped in my copy of Animaniacs one night. Love that show but I hadn't watched that in ages. Oh wow that show is timeless. And naturally I watch the show listening to Yakko and thinking with a slight alteration in voice we have the Bubster. I was looking at Rob's picture and he kinda resembles Yakko: Fun stuff. Well again, happy 60th Rob! The only other order of business this month... BUBSY NEEDS YOU TO HELP WITH A PODCAST!! It's true. The Jaguar Game by Game Podcast by Shinto will be covering the Jaguar version of Bubsy roughly a month for now, and I am gathering information. So you the Bubsy fans can give your feedback or questions that you would like covered. What I am looking for are: 1) Things you would like to know about Bubsy in general 2) Questions you would have for the developers of the Jaguar Bubsy game 3) How would you rate the Jaguar version of Bubsy? (1) Hall of Fame Game (top 5 on the Jaguar) (2) Solid Game (3) "Meh" Game (4) Trash Game (bottom 5 on the Jaguar) You can leave those questions in the comments, or just PM me the feedback or questions. Naturally for me the Jaguar version of Bubsy I would not neccessarily say "Hall of Fame" but it is my top 5 go to games on the Jaguar (at the moment Bubsy, Cybermorph, Raiden, Doom, and Joust). With all it's problems, meh, I still will vote a Hall of Fame in my book. But we all have our guilty pleasures and Bubsy is certainly mine as a hobby. I look forward to your feedback. Soon we will have an informative hour plus long podcast episode about Bubsy that we all can enjoy!
  7. This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3. The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!! Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back. In the game you'll see objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in... Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. Bubsy 2 Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales Bubsy 3D Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying... Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back. I started working on a hack of this for the Vic 20. Extremely rough and the animations for that worked a bit differently than they did the 2600/5200/800 versions. Was discouraged with it for a bit, but then I read this from a Vic 20 gamer... From TheTick1: "I played Fast Eddie on my Vic20 back in the early 80's. I may have to mess with the builtin ML monitor on VICE and work on a similar Bubsy for my good 'ole Vic20. Would be awesome to see Bubsy running on my early 80's Vic20 hardware." Figured that was enough reason to get something going for people to try out. And as much as I love the Atari 2600 version of the hack I had to remember that I didn't have the colors changed on the early revision either. So there is some touching up to do, the colors, the order of the prizes, some of the character spirits. And if someone wants to take a crack at the color changes, drop me a PM and I'll tell you where I believe the color options are based on the other Fast Eddie's I've hacked. Here is the Video gameplay: And here is the rom: Bubsy-V20-R1.crt.zip
  8. Today I was looking around for future Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog article information and I found a cool article on YouTube about some plushies that were a little obscure. I am proud to say that Bubsy may be one of the most rare video game mascot plushies out there. I've enjoyed looking for Bubsy merchandise, and I believe I will just try to build my own re-creation of a Bubsy plushie at this point. As we have been talking on the Bubsy Fan Server there are over 50 Bubsy fans on there, and naturally we all want a Bubsy plush. If you have one, cherish it, love it, feed it tacos. You got something really cool there. In the video they talk about the Bubsy that JennyN was kind enough to take a picture of. I think it is cool that she has is and based on her dad being a developer on Bubsy 2, will hang on to it. Good to see the Bubster getting that kind of love. Michael Berlyn has donated his Bubsy to a museum in New York, so soon many kids will get to see the Bubsy plush... and I might have to fly up there and pay the plush a visit. So anyway, here is the YouTube video enjoy... A quick screen capture. Looks like a plush was given out for the TV pilot too: Here is a little bit about JennyN in the comments of the video: Spooky Deer fun stuff for the bubsy plush stories: JennyN is actually a youtuber! her name is Jenny Nicholson and she covers topics like wild books sold on amazon, star wars, and my little pony! she was actually the voice behind most of the cast of friendship is witchcraft (along with sherclop pones). she recently-ish (a couple weeks ago) tweeted about the bubsy plushes she owned! she still has both and isn't going to sell either of them. she's pretty entertaining to watch and i really recommend her- seeing her mentioned in this video is pretty wild considering i've been binge rewatching her videos lately lmao ----- Originally posted here... https://atariage.com/forums/blog/234/entry-15977-cruisin-youtube-wacky-world-of-promotional-plushies-june-2019/
  9. As of right now the countdown timer should be over for Steam and PS4 users! From all of us at the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog, and friends, Have fun out there Bubsy gamers! Picture from SpongeFox.. Blog originally here: https://atariage.com/forums/blog/234/entry-15874-we-are-go-for-launch-for-bubsy-paws-on-fire/
  10. Newest Bubsy game is 20% in the Playstation store up to the release date! Bubsy wishes Happy Easter! Fan response... And one other fan entry... (A good poster shot from the upcoming game)
  11. 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.kickstarter.com/projects/bubsy/bubsy-paws-on-fire-spicy-extras
  12. 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
  13. Hey all, we'll go ahead and post this a little early... presenting... the interview with Michael Berlyn the creator of Bubsy Bobcat!!! SpongeFox and I had a blast talking to Michael as he talked about a few of his projects from OO Topos his earliest game, projects at Infocom (Infidel, Cutthroats, Fooblitzky, and Suspended) as well as his musical experience "Hot Mustard", and his latest addictive iOS game, Ogg. And naturally lots and lots of behind the scenes on the creation of Bubsy Bobcat, the mascot that Accolade banked on to save their company and succeeded! Mike (as he asked to be called, not Mr. Berlyn) really enjoyed the illustrations of SpongeFox as you can see in the interview, so this would be a great time to share some illiustrations that have piled up while I was editing interviews in the last month. Here is what SpongeFox doodled during the interview: Ironically Mike mentioned that Bubsy was based in character on a dog they had at the time. These were actually drawn by SpongeFox a week before the interview. Only other news is that I am working with Shinto as he wraps up his Bubsy episode for the Atari Jaguar Game by Game podcast. I'm thankful to Shinto for having that episode as a motivation to reach out and interview Faran Thomason and Michael Berlyn in research for the podcast. Been a Tea-riffic experience!
  14. Just got this in the eMail from Accolade... Added bonus... SpongeFox contributed to this frightfully great surprise, especially involving the Twins, with this new artwork today!
  15. 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-Promo-Ad-Booklet-BUBSY-II-Ballz-etc/273522021427?_trkparms=aid%3D555017%26algo%3DPL.CASSINI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20170221125811%26meid%3De81035e4581e40aabecf29ca58bf011a%26pid%3D100753%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26%26itm%3D273522021427&_trksid=p2045573.c100753.m4841 And the second exact set... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1993-SNES-SEGA-Mega-Drive-Ad-Booklet-BUBSY-Gods-Speed-Racer-Brett-Hull-Hockey/283224638872?hash=item41f1810598:g:OCIAAOSwDX9bzzC9 https://www.ebay.com/itm/1994-SNES-SEGA-Mega-Drive-Accolade-Vintage-Promo-Ad-Booklet-BUBSY-II-Ballz-etc/273522021427?hash=item3faf2ed433:g:IM0AAOSw15Zbzyk4 Some cool pictures if nothing else.
  16. Been a fantastic day as you can imagine on Twitter. Soooo many people are chiming in on the official holiday started in 2011 (as I'll explain more in a moment) in a day when all Star Wars fans have some tongue and cheek fun with the phrase "May the Force Be With You" which is kinda of a "Drive Safe", or "God Bless" kind of phrase in the Star Wars Universe. So at some point someone started "May the Fourth Be With You", which was as first believed to be the original release date of Star Wars, which was honestly May 25, 1977. However that is more than fine as Disney is releasing a Star Wars story, Rogue One being last year's story released ... December 2016? Huh. Anyway, Solo, the Star Wars story of this year, will be released May 25th. I think this was to avoid conflicting with with Infinity War, but I like how this matches the original release date when it all started in 1977. Ironically I was off work this week and had forgotten about today being the fourth of May. I just happened to see after a recent cleaning of my room Bubsy sitting next to the Boba Fett helmet. And so unsupervised this happened... Later I found out it was "May the Fourth" so I added the title with the Facebook profile editor, and the rest is history. So we have others who have chimed in on this bizarre "holiday".. er... event? Our last Bubsy link before we go off the rails was Black Forest Games who programmed the Bubsy game last year: And now, in the true spirit of "What could possibly go wrong" the rest... Soooo many sports teams jumped on this... And other interesting advertising... Mark Hamill is a star who is a bit of a Star Wars nerd himself. With that let's take this back to where it all started... the fans.. And a fan that's out of this world... The Fourth Will be With You... till midnight tonight. -Doctor Clu
  17. If you wanted to see Bubsy on a Atari system other than the Jaguar, now's your chance to play it online! http://www.virtualatari.org/soft.php?soft=Bubsy Enjoy! -Doctor Clu

  20. A lot of people think Bubsy started on Atari (really the SNES and then Genesis) so .... sure... why not! Here we have it folks... BUBSY : Kitt'N Kaboodle This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3 . The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!! Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back. In the game you'll see (if I can figure out where the sprites are in the code I hope to change them to...) objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in... Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. Bubsy 2 Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales Bubsy 3D Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying... Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back. Released October 31st and still having fun with that game. As for this Commodore 64 fan release, you'll see this is definitely a work in progress. The characters are about 70% where I want them to be. Still haven't found where the prize sprites are mapped so that might not change. And there is the intro screen which I wanted to get some input from those reading this. So here is how the intro screen looks... And I have the gremlin, Presents, and Sirius all mapped out... So I've got some defined screen to play with. Part of me has considered working in some order this... So for example, I could have have ... Gremlin = "Kitt'N Kaboodle" splat. Sirius = Bubsy (being red/pink) Presents= ?? Or we can do... Gremlin = Exclamation point (Bubsy's symbol) Sirius = Kitt N/ Kaboodle W/ Presents = Bubsy ! So curious to see what you all think. Here is the romdisk image to try out: Bubsy-c64-32b7.p00.zip Here are other versions of this game that have been made: Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Atari 400/800 Commodore Vic 20 I'll admit, Fast Eddie was probably the best on the Commodore 64, so this should be interesting!
  21. This thread given as a reference as I realized the original hack thread should have been posted here. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/271921-bubsy-for-the-atari-5200/ Bubsy0 5200 R1.bin Bubsy0 5200 R2.bin Bubsy Manual.pdf Bubsy0 5200 R3-HS.bin
  22. Today is the big launch day for Bubsy: Paws on Fire. First off, this bit of art from SpongeFox And a little word from the Bubster. Looks like we are now at his birthday... And with that link he gives you can hear tunes from Paws on Fire! https://twitter.com/Stemage/status/1128378944690868231 And finally, another picture from SpongeFox inspired by the talk on the Bubsy Discord server on that Bubsy is to DeeDee if Virgil Reality is Dexter. It works...
