  1. 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/
  2. Even when the Bubsy pilot cartoon failed, there still some products of it. However, they are really rare. Here's a picture of Bubsy standing on 2 TVs while holding what appears to be a Bubsy Oscar (Picture found by Xindictive) It was also used for the cover of MegaTech (Issue 31) and for promotion of Bubsy 2 on July of 1994. Bubsy press kit character model sheets: Ally Cassandra, Virgil, Oblivia, Buzz (The screenshot came from Ebay, found by Xindictive) Xindictive (the original founder) actually bought it on Ebay and scanned all of it. So if you want to download it and check it out, here's the link: https://mega.nz/file/rY9iGYZY#IRTrCbA2SZLXtFD4uF_mJRu_BTPbrxaN3NtZ83NS0vE Here are some examples: In Megadrive Preview magazine of Bubsy 2, you can see the background of Virgil's lab. Not much more information and there's no way to buy that. A shirt that says "Bubsy's Back!" (It has an interesting story: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16787-8-bubsys-watchn-win-contest/) (Pictures by DoctorClu) A badge that says "Bubsy's Watch'n Win contest" (Found by DoctorClu on Ebay) Another badge of Bubsy from a cartoon (Picture by Xindictive) According to JennyN, Arnold plush also exist. He knows that, because his dad worked there.[1] But there's no picture to be proven. Source [1] https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/9872-cruizin-vgmm-january-2013/
  3. 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?
  4. Bubsy Pilot used 9 old clips, that we're borrowed from Archive Film and even from NASA. They we're used: 1.) When Terry and Teresa ask Bubsy "Why do you wanna test it (Virtual reality helmet), uncle Bubsy?" Then Bubsy explains why: "Because I am brave.." Then it shows the footage of a brave man, who stops cannonball by his stomach. This is Frank Richards (1887-1969), who was an American carnival and vaudeville performer and mostly known for stopping cannonballs with his stomach (source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bxd1EsVhI8) (more info about him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_"Cannonball"_Richards) "Because I crave adventure..." Then it shows a footage of a caveman fighting with some sort of monster. We are not sure where this came from. So no source found for this one yet. "Because, I need to go, where no bobcat has ever gone before.." Then it shows a footage of an astronaut jumping on the moon. This is of course from NASA. More specifically, the First Moon Lading from 1969 (Neil Armstrong) (source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwZb2mqId0A) 2.) When Bubsy says "Let's be heroes and save the day!" to Arnold. Then he grabs Arnold's tail, pulls him over and explains, how are they doing to save the day: "Let's take a bull by the horn.." Then it shows a footage of a man riding on a bull, then he falls down and bull beats him. No source to be found for this one yet. "Let's beat the odds..." Then it shows a footage of two men boxing underwater. This footage was recorded in Silver Spring, Florida. Boxing underwater was some sort of tourist attraction in Silver Spring, Florida in the 1950s. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X65ZSgWedqM) "Let's throw the course into the wind!" Then it shows a footage of a man in some sort of test. This man was in the G-force experiment in wind tunnel (level 9 of 10), that was tested by US military. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q01WLM6RwSY) 3.) At the end, when Bubsy tells to Arnold, how to save the day: "You gotta live on the edge.." Then it shows a footage of a man standing on one hand on a roof. No source to be found for this one yet. "You gotta go for the gusto..." Then it shows a footage of a man ice-skating with a rocket on his back. It was a test on Rocket Ice Skater invention. But it didn't work and he fell down. (source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCTRjK69Vq8) "You gotta be a hero for crying out loud!" And for the final footage to show, it shows a superhero flying in the sky. It's a scene from the movie called: Invaders from Space (1965). It's a movie, that was edited for American audience of the 1957 Japanese short series called Super Giant. (source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSNenmvNmZU, time: 1:02:15) (more info about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invaders_from_Space) So they are some of the footage found, but not all of them. Six of them are found, but three of them are still missing.
  5. 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.
  6. 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. Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1F97am9_N2I Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gFrJ72PxzU&t Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJqe-X9uiRo&t Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LaiikZo8lc 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.
  7. When it aired? It aired on November 28th 1993 on Thanksgiving on the Channel FOX 53. According to this footage from Bubsy Pilot (with original commercials), the next cartoons we're Garfield (at 7:30 am), Merry Melodies (at 8:00 am), The Pink Panther (at 8:30 am) and Xuxa (at 9:00 am). The cartoon was 21 minutes long and had 5 minutes of commercials, so it's believable, that it aired at 7:00 am. List of Commercials 1. Bubblin shower (Mattel) 2. Original Bugles, corn snacks (General Mills, Inc.) 3. Granola Bars (Nature Valley) 4. 36 Hour Marathon sale! (Value City Furniture) 5. Tyrannosaurus Rocks (Mattel) 6. Bumble Ball (ERTL) 7. Quintex Cellular 8. Western School of Health & Business 9. Barbie: Paint 'N Dazzle Car (Mattel) 10. Answer & Win (FOX 53) 11. Thanksgiving Safety (Edgar Snyder & Associates) 12. Paws with a chase Reactions The reactions weren't really good. It wasn't a big success, so it failed. On the Bubsy Fanblog, Michael Berlyn said, that Accolade developers we're cringing while they watched it. Even though, they were involved in the production of it.[1] Some people say, that he hated the cartoon, but according to Sega-16's interview with Michael Berlyn, when they asked him, what did he thought of it, he said this: "…//I thought it was extremely clever — it did a nice job of playing on Bubsy’s name, and the characters were all “Bubsy-like.” While the art direction was not what Bubsy was all about, it was at least interesting. Bubsy‘s original art direction was an interpretation of the Fleischer cartoons of the 1920s and 30s. The rounded, bouncing, alive cars and objects was what I wanted, and after a lot of work, was accomplished. The TV pilot had a more southwest, angled feel, and that was okay since the sponser was Taco Bell (if I recall correctly). The attitude and wisecracks were Bubsy, though." [2] But it could only mean, that he only liked Bubsy's characters, because in the other interview (this time with DoctorClu), he said, that he didn't like the cartoon.[3] Some years later, when the internet started to exist, a lot of people talked and they're still talking about it. They said and they're still saying, that it sucks, it's annoying, has lame jokes, looks awful… While it has a lot of negatives, it still has some positives: 1. The theme song and music are catchy & pretty good. 2. The animation is great, even tho' it has some animation errors, it still looks great. 3. The character designs and his world are interesting. 4. They did a great job on backgrounds. 5. Arnold himself is a bit funny at times with his goofy voices. 6. Sid himself is kinda funny at some point, even if he is stereotypical character like in many cartoons with hungry and moronic henchmen.

  8. 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.

  9. 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..)

  10. From the album: Gallery of Bubsy Games

    It's a remake of Bubsy 1. It has more details and better resolution. You can also choose three difficulties. Trivia If you collect 20 TVs, you can get to watch Bubsy TV Pilot. This is where we also found it.
  11. 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.
