  1. Some days ago, I asked Mark Eyles through E-mail about Bubsy 3. At first, he thought I meant Bubsy 3D. So he said that he wasn't involved in this and gave me a link to Bubsy 3D page. Then I explained to him more about it and he then understood me. He said, that he doesn't remember working with Bubsy. There could be two possibilities he said: - either they are just referring to a discussion he had with someone at some point about game ideas or - it was some other game idea that they adapted for Bubsy. Which is interesting since the evidence tells, that he himself showed those ideas to Images Software. Here's the evidence of conversation with Mark Eyles though E-mail. If you don't understand, read the Bubsy Bobcat Wiki about Bubsy 3: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Bubsy_3 Again, here's the evidence of Bubsy 3's description.
  2. Today I found some more info about Bubsy 3. The most forgotten Bubsy game project ever. Which is why I did some research. Credtis: the information gave us by steven78 in 2016 at nintendoage.com and the blog was found by DoctorClu. the evidence Information Bubsy 3 was a game project, that was supposed to be completed on Spring of 1996 on Sega Genesis, Sony PSX and on Sega Saturn. It was produced by Accolade and Images Software (a division of Climax Enterprises Ltd.) (the same company who made Bubsy 2 for Game Boy). It was supposed to be called Bubsy 3 "No more Mr Nice Guy!". The game concept was made by Mark Eyles (the same person, who designed the game called "The Lawnmower Man" in 1993). When he showed Bubsy 3 concepts to Images Software, they liked it so much, that they immediately started developing. According to the evidence, they were close to complete the game. They only needed publishing partners, but it seems that no one accepted it. It could also be cancelled, because Images Software discontinued since 1995. The only proof is the last game they worked on was in 1995 called Theme Park for Sega Genesis and for Sega CD, which they did sound implementation and FMV implementation. We unfortunately have no other screenshots of it besides the tittle screen of it, which looks very alpha phase, the script of codes and the description. New updates about it is on Bubsy Bobcat wiki: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Bubsy_3 Sources https://web.archive.org/web/20191023083142/http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?StartRow=1&catid=35&threadid=163683 https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/13713-cruizin-nintendoage-september-2017-bubsy-2-for-gamegear/
  3. A few months ago, I uploaded a compilation of Bubsy commercials (1993-2019). If you look on 1:26, there's an interesting commercial, that advertised Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind for Sega Mega Drive in 1993. But unfortunetaly, the footage itself was distorted at the start and at the end, so we don't know how it starts nor ends. But at that time, this was the only footage that was available to see. But a month ago, Accolade uploaded a full polished version of this commercial on November 17th 2020 on archive.org. It was found by usagijojo on November 18th 2020 on Discord (Officious Bubsy Fan Group), a day after the footage was uploaded. Interesting enough, they included some more information about this commercial. According to the description, it's an LP VHS recording from a TV broadcast in Perth, Australia in 1993. The network is unknown. Here's the full footage, that they uploaded. 25-16 - Bubsy (1993).mp4 Here's the link: https://archive.org/details/bubsy-commercial
  4. This has some mistakes on scenes. Animation errors Yea, every cartoon has some animation errors,even the best ones. And this one has a lot of them. But some of them are not noticeable, so it's not important, but some of them are big. Some of them are coloured wrong: Arnold's blue hands Bubsy's orange feet Teresa's new shirt! Nephews' grey mouth Buzz's purple head Sometimes it changes the colour on Teresa's and Oblivia's eyelids: Some of them are questionable: What's up with her scarf? That's not how it supposed to lay on her shoulders.. Where's its semi-trailer behind the truck? See what I mean? There are two scenes, where they switched characters: Is that Bubsy Jr. over here? (There is supposed to be Terry, instead of Bubsy Jr.) Eeem, what? How's Terry behind the roller coaster? He's on the roller coaster next to Teresa, remember? (There is supposed to be Bubsy, instead of Terry.) There's even one scene, where they used the wrong background: Uuum, how are they outside? Aren't they supposed to be in Buzz's kitchen? Non-logical scenes There are two scenes, that don't make any sense: So, look at the first picture: So Terry is on the left side, Teresa is on the right side. Arnold throws them away, because he saw the truck on TV and then he hides. But then in the next scene, when they walk back to Arnold,they're switched. How? In this scene, two giant nephews walk, then Terry accidentally steps on Bubsy and Arnold. Both. Terry says: "Eeew, I think I stepped on something squishy." But then Teresa says: "Me too." How? How did she felt that? Terry squashed them both. So again, how did she felt that?
  5. Today I finally finished Bubsy Pilot Wiki page! Please check it out! It has a lot of interesting facts. From History to Products.
  6. The Postcard At one time, when they we're selling Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind for Sega Mega Drive, they also included this interesting postcard from Bubsy. He wrote about the contest called "Watch'n Win" and if you won, you would got a big prize. We never knew a lot of information about this contest other than from the postcard, which it just mentions it. That is, until in 2016, when someone uploaded a scanned flyer for it. Which is amazing, but we don't know, where did this person got it.[1] Backstory In 1993, Accolade teamed up with Software Etc. (the gaming shop that doesn't excist today) and made a contest called "Bubsy's Watch'n Win Contest" Contest The contest was to watch the Bubsy cartoon on TV and wrote your 3 favorite cartoon characters on the Entry Form. Then you cut the Entry Form from the flyer and sent it to the address, that was written bellow. Prizes According to the flyer, the prizes we're really interesting: News? Well, we don't know, how many people joined, we don't even know, who won the grand prize. Accolade never said any news about it or any updates. So really, we have no idea about this one. Maybe it's because they worked on Bubsy 2 and then on Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales and even on other games at that time and they eventually forgot about this contest. Which is a shame, because that would be an amazing contest, if they remembered, that this existed. Especially for the Grand prize, where your family could go on Hollywood for 3 days! But sadly, it never happened. T-shirts "Bubsy's Back!" story There's also an interesting fact: So the First prize we're T-shirts, that said "Bubsy's Back" Well, what if I told you, that they included those T-shirts as a bonus prize for Bubsy 2? Let me explain: When they released Bubsy 2, they also put a stamp, that said "Free T-Shirt with this game, while stocks last!" They did this for some short time and they didn't do this again. We never knew how it looked like until in 2014, when Doctorclu saw a person with that shirt at JagFest 2000.[2] So they must be really rare to get it. Source [1] https://fdocuments.in/document/bubsy-watchn-win-contest-1993.html [2] https://atariage.com/forums/topic/228945-jagfest-2000-question-bubsy-shirt/
  7. While the Bubsy pilot cartoon was airing (On November 28th 1993, at 7:00 am), there was one commercial, that aired called Answer & Win. It was FOX 53's kids club gaming show. There's not much information about it other than from this commercial. Info Only 14 year olds or under could join this contest. They we're seen every weekday morning at 8:15 am. To join this contest, they needed to dial the phone number and they would ask you some question. If the kid answered right, they would won for the big prize and some money. The prizes The big prizes on this day we're the board game called IT FROM THE PIT and the video game Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind for Sega Mega Drive. By the look of this scene, they we're only two copies of it. Two kids might got that game from this show. It would be interesting, if we knew, who got it, but we don't know. It's an interesting contest from the 90s and it's one of the most rarest medias.
  8. At that time, Michael Berlyn left the company and he wasn't involved in this project. The only thing he did for their project is to came up with some of the characters they used in, such as Oblivia.[1 53:00 - 1:33:00] We don't know, when the production started, but what we know is that, they worked in Calico Studios and we also know, who was involved in it. Here's the list of important people and what they're known for. They also have a lot of connections each-other. The Director was Tom Burton, Producers we're Claudia Zeitlin Burton and Tom Burton, the Art Director was Ken Leonard (not Ken Macklin) and it was Produced by Calico Entertainment. They are known for making cartoons like Denver, the Last Dinosaur (1988-1989), Widget, the World Watcher (1990-1991) and Mr. Bogus (1991-1993). [2][3][4][5] Besides Calico Entertainment, it was also Produced by Imagination Factory Inc., who also has the connection with Calico Entertainment and that is, they both produced The Adventures of Zorro (1997-1998) and Bad Baby (1997).[6] The Writer was Ray De Laurentis. Now this is interesting, because he is known Writer for The Fairly OddParents (2009-2017) and T.U.F.F. Puppy (2010-2015).[7] The Storyboard Artists we're Tom Bernardo, Tom Knowles and Ken Laramay. Tom Bernardo and Ken Laramay we're also in the Art Department for Kim Possible (2002-2007). What's more interesting is that, Tom Bernardo was also in the animation department for Anastasia (1997) and a Storyboard Artist for Lion Guard (2016-2019). Tom Knowles was also a Storyboard Artist for Animaniacs (1998) (which he worked for 1 episode), Frekazoid! (1995-1996) and he was also background artist for Charlotte's Web (1973).[8][9][10] Camera and optical effects we're made by Drew Redford. What's really interesting is that, he was also a Visual effect artist for Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014).[11] It was animated by Sei Young Animation. It was an animation studio based in South Korea, known for animating The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, The Legend of Zelda, and The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. Not to mention, they also animated some anime.[12] The Music was made by California Star Productions, who also made music for The Moo Family Holiday Hoe-Down (1992), another Calico Entertainment cartoon.[13] The Footages we're used from Archive Film and from NASA. If you want to know, where are clips from, here's the list of their origins: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16792-10-footages-origins/ It was sponsored by Taco Bell. "The TV pilot had a more southwest, angled feel, and that was okay since the sponsor was Taco Bell (if I recall correctly)" [14] -Michael Berlyn, Sega-16's interview Voiceactor list: Bubsy - Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, The Adventures of Jimmy…) Arnold, Virgil - Pat Fraley (Krang, Casey Jones, Baxter Stockman, Smurf..)

  9. Everyone on the internet are still saying the fact, that he hates Bubsy. Which is not true. If they said it as a theory, I would probably understand, but they actually say it as a fact, without even asking him. Which again, not true. A youtuber named DrewTheRedPoochyena uploaded a video, where he was at a book signing event for Rob Paulsen's newest release "Voice Lessons" during a Q&A session. At the end, he asked him, if he hates Bubsy. He said this: Rob Paulsen: "I don't hate Bubsy…//..I have nothing against Bubsy…//The reason I wansn't involved is not because I don't want to. They hired somebody else. I got nothing against Bubsy." DrewTheRedPoochyena: "So at the very least, not worse than Coconut Fred, right?" Rob Paulsen: "No." Here's the video to prove it: If you still need prove, here's the actual tweet from Rob Paulsen: https://twitter.com/yakkopinky/status/1257402898645790722
  10. Steven78 Steven78 is the person, who posted the screenshot of the title screen, the script of codes and the description on NintendoAge. He lives in Netherlands and has a lot of prototypes of games. He even has games, that were never published or completed (such as the Pac world, Shadows Of The Wind...). Where did he got them? I'm not sure. It was really hard to find his sites/adresses. I eventually found out, that this person has been silent since 2017 according to SMSpower page. A User named Bock tried to contact him in 2019, but he never got answers from him. However, I found his account with the same name on BoomBoxery. He must be the same person, because in his introduction page, it says, that he lives in Netherlands. And on NintendoAge, it also says, that he lives there. But unfortunately, he hasn’t been active since 2019. But I still tried to ask him. No answers. I found the article on Retro Game Network, that mentions him. Not only his username, but also his real name. Stephen Jacobs. I tried many combination with his user name, real name, location...The only other results from that is a bunch of accounts on Facebook with his real name. There are hundreds of them, but we don’t know how he looks like, or where he specifically lives on Netherlands (but according to his account on nesretro.com, he lives on Utrecht.) The last result is his account on nesretro.com as we mentioned before, but again, not active on it. So I think there's no way to contact him anymore. If you don't understand, what I'm talking about, here's the Bubsy Bobcat Wiki page about Bubsy 3: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Bubsy_3 Sources https://www.smspower.org/forums/17354-UnreleasedBubsyIIForGameGear https://boomboxery.com/forum/members/steven78.5626/ http://www.retrogamenetwork.com/2014/11/06/unreleased-super-nintendo-prototype-title-sound-factory-a-k-a-sound-fantasy-discovered/ http://www.nesretro.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1252696225
  11. I found the blog by Buyatari, that talks about Bubsy 2 preview prototype for Sega Genesis. Which is pretty interesting considering, that they got that only people, who previewed this game in 1994. Those were Scott Barnes, Alex V. Cabal, Harry Chavez, Dexx Dorris, Steve Fallas, Richard Gangwish, Sandy Jackson, Chris Nash, Kevin Seiter and James A. Vitales. So only 10 copies of it. Here are pictures, that he showed: Theory Just like Bubsy 1 prototype, there's a theory, that it might have some screenshots of the prototype of this game besides the title screen. It's proven by looking threw magazines, that is mentioned and look at screenshots of the game and see, if there's any difference. Here are screenshots I've found so far and the comparison. The early title screen of Bubsy 2 (there's also a text: Preview copy only! 1/28/94) An interesting early version of this menu (interesting enough, that's from SNES, so there's a chance that the prototype of Bubsy 2 for SNES exist) There are three interesting screenshots of what appears to be a level of space. There are two differences: first, the background is the sky from a plane level instead of space background. And second, there is an unused sprite of a globe with a ring. The most interesting thing about an early version of Bubsy 2 is that it had a weapon, that it doesn't exist in the final release: a pie. However, the pie weapon is included on Bubsy 2 for Gameboy. Conclusion Not only there is NTSC and PAL prototype of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, but there's also a preview prototype of Bubsy 2.

  12. After the first Bubsy game came out in 1993, they made a sequel and simply called it Bubsy 2. This is the only title of a Bubsy game, that has no pun like all of his games are called. The sequel wasn't successful and not many people liked this game. Even Michael Berlyn (the creator of Bubsy) hated Bubsy 2 and said, that it was a fail of his franchise. Even tho' it was a lack of success, it still has many releases, but not as much as the first game got. So, let's check them out. But before we do, let's talk about this game. So in this game, you get a choice of West Wing and East Wing. In each wing, they have 3 difficulties a.k.a floors. And each floor it has 5 levels. So in total, if you choose all the floors, it has 15 levels. If you choose this one, you get mini bosses twice. Then when you finish the last floor, you fight the final boss. His name is Oinker P. Hammm. Of course you can choose the floor, so that you can only play one floor a.k.a 5 levels and get to the final boss already. They also used characters from Bubsy TV Pilot, those are Arnold, Terry, Teresa, Buzz and Sid . I mean, they also used Virgil, but only for a comic. If you want to know more about the use of characters, here's the link: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16784-5-references-from-bubsy-pilot/ Bubsy can use a bomb (which you can make enemies disappear on the screen), a black hole (which you can get out of the level) and a Nerf gun™. If you want to get those weapons, you need to collect Bubsy cards and pay for it. This game also has 3 mini games, when you enter some random door. And of course you can play for points (which it's just normal) or play for time. For this one, you can play with the enemy on who goes faster. 1.) Releases In 1994, they released it on Super Nintendo and on Sega Genesis. Both versions have again same differences as the first Bubsy game, that is the music, the sprite and the Bubsy's voice quality. They also have different ways to choose floors and wings. On the Genesis, when you press Start, you get to see both wings and floors and you can choose it easier. But on Super Nintendo, you press Start button, choose the floor, press Start again and then you finally choose the wing. On the Genesis, when you go on a shop, they are expensive. But on the Super Nintendo, it's more cheaper and you can also sell with weapons to get more cards. Not only those differences, but they also have different frame rate. According to Digital Foundry's video about History of Bubsy series, the Genesis version is faster (with 47 frames/sec) than the Super Nintendo version (with 33 frames/sec). (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRvw04OA1i0&t) Later it was released on Super Famicon and on Sega Mega Drive. Did you know? When they we're selling Bubsy 2 for Sega Megadrive, they put a sticker that said "Free T-Shirt with this game, while stocks last!" It was limited, so they did this for some short time. If you want to know more about this, here's the link: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16787-8-bubsys-watchn-win-contest/ Then later in 1995, they released a Game Boy version of it. That's right! Game Boy games had limitations, so this game is shorter. It still has three floors, but no wings to choose. It only has three levels, instead of five. It has two minigames, instead of three. New feature is that, Bubsy can throw pies. What's interesting is that, pie was supposed to be one of the Bubsy's weapons, but it never happened, until the Game Boy verison came out. The first cover is from Europe, the other one is from USA. 2.) Re-releases It has 2 re-releases. One was re-released in Brasil by TEC TOY on Mega Drive. There are many 25 in 1 packs, 10 in 1 packs....Specifically from Russia. First one also includes Bubsy 1. And finally on December 17th, 2015, Retroism published the game called "Bubsy Two-Fur" on Steam, which it's just an Emulator of Bubsy 2. It also features Bubsy 1. 3. Plug 'N Plays There are many of them. Again, from Russia. They actually include Bubsy 2. v One even includes Bubsy 1. (Source: click on pictures) 4.) Bootlegs There are Russian bootlegs, like the first game. And that is for Mega Drive. Here's a bit of footage of Russian version of Bubsy 2, that was recorded by DoctorClu (Time: 5:32 - 12:07) So it got: 5 releases, 8 re-releases, 11 Plug 'N Plays and 4 bootlegs. It was released on Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Super Famicon, Sega Megadrive, Game Boy and on Steam. It was released in: USA, Europe, Brasil and in Russia.
  13. Bubsy was made in 1993 with his first game called "Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind" which the title is play on words in reference to a movie called "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977). When it was released, he was popular and became the best new character in 1993. In fact, he was so popular, he had many merchandise, competitions and commercials. The game also got many releases and ports. Some of them you know, some of them are new. So let's check them out. 1.) Releases First it was released on Super Nintendo in May 8th, 1993. Later, it was released on Super Famicon. The next release was on Sega Mega Drive later in 1993. It has an interesting box art. Some of them have the gold sticker typed "Watch for My TV Special Thanksgiving weekend" with Postcard from Bubsy. It talks about Watch'N Win contest. Do you want to know, what happened to the contest? I actually wrote about it. It has an interesting story. Here's the link: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16787-8-bubsys-watchn-win-contest/ Some of them don't have the postcard, but they still have the gold sticker. And some of them don't have both of them and they just have game cartridge and manual. It has an interesting backstory. Basically, Accolade tried to save money for a release on Sega Genesis and decided to reverse enginer Sega's cartridge copyright protection. If they released on the actual Sega Genesis, they would needed to pay 10$ fee on every game cartridge and have to release exclusively on Sega platforms. There was the legal battle between Sega and Accolade. However, Accolade won and it was fair use for two reasons: 1. Accolade wrote a lot of their own code 2. Bubsy and Accolade's other Genesis games were multi-platform. (Source:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NIQPDSBapE&t) This version is also different than the Super Nintendo version, such as the music, the sprites and the Bubsy's voice quality. Did you know? Two copies of it for Sega Megadrive we're one of the big prizes of the FOX 53's kids club gaming show called: Answer & Win. Here's more info: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16786-7-answer-win/ In May 1997, Accolade made a remake of it, released it and called it "Super Bubsy" It was developed by ATI and it was distributed by EA. It was released on Windows 95. The sprites on this one are more detailed, it has a higher resolution and the music is MIDI. It also features a fully voiced narrator and the whole Bubsy TV Pilot, which this is where we found it. This game also has the difficulty option. So if you want to play it easier, then this is for you. Too bad, that this game is one of the rarest PC games to find. 2.) Re-Releases The first re-release was made in Japan in 1993 and called it "Yamaneko Bubsy no Daibouken" or "Bubsy the Bobcat’s Great Adventure" It was developed by Poppo and published by Pack-In-Video on Super Famicon. What's interesting is that all the level passwords formed the first 114 digits of PI. There's not much of a difference except his quotes. He doesn't say the same quotes as the official Bubsy says. A guy named Clyde Mandelin posted a blog »How they translated Bubsy into Japanese?« which he explains what Bubsy says in the Japanese version. (Here's the link of his blog: https://legendsoflocalization.com/how-they-translated-bubsy-into-japanese/) In level 1, he says "dō tte koto nē yo" which means »It's no big deal.« In level 2, he says "yana yokan" which means »I have a bad feeling about this.« In level 3, he says "makasetoke tte" which means »Just leave it to me.« In level 4, he says "bibiru na yo" which means »Don’t wimp out now!« In level 5, he says "rettsu getto redi" which means »Let's get ready.« In level 6, he says "osore deshō" which means »Don't you mean "fear"?« In level 7, he says "bakyūn!" which means »Kapow!« In level 8, he says "kega suru ze ore wa" which means »Someone's gonna get hurt! Me.« In level 9, he says "kītenai yo" which means »No one told me about this!« In level 10, he says "kītenai yo" which means »No one told me about this!« In level 11, he says "sutanto neko o tsukatte" which means »Use a stunt cat.« In level 12, he says "dokutā sutoppu" which means »My doctor told me I can't do this.« In level 13, he says "yaterarenai yo" which means »I can't do this anymore.« In level 14, he says "shō ga nē na" which means »I guess it can’t be helped.« In level 15, he says "kyūkyūsha yonde" which means »Call an ambulance.« In level 16, we have no idea, what he says. There was also a Japanese version of it for Sega Mega Drive, that was made by Serega and again published by Pack-In-Video. (Source: https://warosu.org/vr/thread/3603904) Besides that, there are many re-releases of Bubsy 1 for Sega Megadrive. Here's the average Mega Drive box art. Tho it has a different cartridge. Here's another one, with an interesting game manual. Here's another one with different cover. Here's the UK version. Here's 10 in 1 pack including Bubsy 1 and Bubsy 2. Speaking of that, here's the Telstar Double Value games featuring Sonic 2 and Bubsy 1 for Sega Megadrive. It was released in 1995. (source: https://www.gamespot.com/games/telstar-double-value-games-sonic-the-hedgehog-2/) Here's another one featuring Bubsy 1 and Jewel Master. It was made in Australia by Sega OziSoft. (Source: https://segaretro.org/Double_Pack:_Bubsy_and_Jewel_Master) They also re-released it with original box art, that has a sticker "Sega Classics" like the Double Pack one. The Super Nintendo version was also re-released for sale and use in Sweden,Denmark,Norway,Finland and even in Iceland. Super Bubsy was also re-released. For example, here's the 2 in 1 pack game featuring Super Bubsy and LollyPop (1999, Germany). Or how about 2 in 1 pack game featuring Super Bubsy and Thunder Brigade. Both of them we're made for Windows 95 and 98. (Sources: https://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/2-in-1-pack-super-bubsy-lollypop; https://picclick.de/Neu-OVP-PC-Spiel-2-In-1-142476318659.html) Here's another re-release of it. It has a really great cover. But the most known re-release of it is called "Desert Fox Bubsy" It was re-released after May, 1997 by WG Verlag & Lizenzen AG, a publisher company in Uzwill, Switzerland. (Source: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Desert_Fox_Bubsy) And finally on December 17th, 2015, Retroism published the game called "Bubsy Two-Fur" on Steam, which it's just an Emulator of Bubsy 1 (Super Nintendo version). It also features Bubsy 2. 3.) Plug 'N Plays Im sure there are many plug 'n plays that has Bubsy 1 out there, but we can only find one. It also includes Bubsy 2. (click on picture to get its source) 4.) Bootlegs There's the Russian bootleg of Bubsy 1 for Sega Mega Drive. There are a lot of versions: One looks normal and official looking. The other ones look more like a bootleg and the boxes are smaller than the average Mega Drive box. One of the covers we're used the Bubsy artwork from Bubsy 2 promotional art. One cartridge has the official Bubsy 1 label. And the other one has.. a label of a photoshopped Bubsy behind this odd background from maybe a cover of cartoon movie? and it has a different title. It's titled "Bubsy Define Delays"... Yea.. Here are other Russian bootlegs: Here's a bit of footage of Russian version of Bubsy 1, that was recorded by DoctorClu (Time: 0:00 - 5:30) This one is a Korean bootleg of Super Bubsy. It was made for Windows 98 and for Windows Me. It has an interesting character design of Bubsy, but I'm not sure, why is there a polar bear and a duck on the cover. The game is called "날아라 슈퍼법시" which according to the Google translator, it means "Fly Super Law". I don't think that it's called like that, but this is what translates to in any other translators. Maybe it's called "Fly away, Super Bubsy" because the sentences are "nal-ala syupeobeobsi" and it sounds familiar to "nal-ala super bubsy" and Bubsy's ability is gliding, which it counts as flying, I suppose. I don't know, that's just my theory. So it got: 4 releases, 16 re-releases 1 Plug 'N Play and 7 bootlegs. It was released on: Super Nintendo, Super Famicon, Sega Mega Drive, Windows 95, Windows 98/Me (from a Korean bootleg game) and on Steam. It was released in: USA, Europe, Australia, Japan, South Korea and in Russia.
  14. In May 1993, Accolade made a game called Bubsy In Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. It was created by Michael Berlyn, who is known for text adventure games and of course for his Bubsy games. Tho' he only worked on the first Bubsy game and then three years later on Bubsy 3D. It was released on SNES and on Sega Mega Drive. After it was published, a lot people loved this game. They said, that it has great music, great animation, all and all, it was a sucess for Accolade and for Michael Berlyn. Sega-16: Were you surprised at Bubsy’s initial success? Mike Berlyn: Yes, and no. I was hopeful, and we had a put a lot of work into it. The marketing push and advertising commitments were massive, and I had never before been associated with a product that had such financial support. As far as the product’s success, I did the best I could and crossed my fingers. I was more surprised at learning what a real marketing effort was: the money, the manpower, and the thought that went into it.[1] If you don't believe it, here's some screenshots of reviews for this game: FUN FACT: It was also released in Japan and it was called "Yamaneko Bubsy no Daibouken" or "Bubsy the Bobcat's Great Adventures" All the level passwords formed the first 114 digits of PI. While the success was happening, lots of commercials we're made. According to this video, it got 5 commercials, one was even aired while the Bubsy cartoon was airing! Maybe they're more of these, but they're lost and til' this day, they're only 5 of them found. There's also a Spanish commercial for it. It also got a lot of merchandise such as posters, two special books, T-shirts, pins… What's interesting is the Bubsy plush. But only employees of Accolade got this plush.[2] It even had many competitions and many ports of this game. Because of a huge success, Accolade decided to make a TV show out of him. So they started the Production of it.

  15. This is a compilation of Bubsy commercials from 1993 to 2019. There's no commercial for Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales or for Bubsy 3D. Right now, Bubsy 1 and 2, Bubsy: The Woolies Strikes Back and Bubsy: Paws on Fire! are the only ones who got commercials. Right now, I found 10 of them. Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind got the most with 5 commercials and the less got Bubsy 2 with only 1 commercial. The only other dubbed Bubsy commercial is in Spanish, that was made in 1993 for Bubsy 1. There's some interesting commercials like "Answer and win" which included Bubsy 1, was actually aired while the pilot was aired! For a prove, here's a video of Bubsy Pilot (with original commercials): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HRZV5AXBy8&t=1197s (time: 19:56)
  16. From the album: Gallery of Bubsy Games

    According to the Google translator, it means "Fly Super Law". I don't think that it's called like that, but this is what translates to in any other translators. Theory Maybe it's called "Fly away, Super Bubsy" because the sentences are "nal-ala syupeobeobsi" and it sounds familiar to "nal-ala super bubsy" and Bubsy's ability is gliding, which it counts as flying, I suppose. I don't know, that's just my theory.
