  1. I finally made a documentary video about this obscure game project. I hope you like it 😃
  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. On January 21st 2021, Julia (Archivist at The Strong National Museum of Play) announced on Twitter, that collection of Michael and Muffy Berlyn papers are now available on a museum called The Strong National Museum of Play, which is in New York. In the page from the museum it says, they have a lot of Bubsy archives such as: “Bubsy” – game proposal, tech specs, cost documents, notes; 1991 “Bubsy” – game design documentation, bug lists, notes, memos; 1991-1992 “Bubsy” – marketing folder with photographs, 1991 ... They even have some concept arts of Bubsy 3D and some VHSes! Read more about it here: 119.2588.pdf Or read it on the website: http://archives.museumofplay.org/repositories/3/resources/219
  4. Today, I looked at one of the screenshots of Bubsy 3 "No More Mr. Nice Guy!" and checked at the files, that are shown in the screenshot. I don't know, if I chose the right files for Bubsy 3, but I think those are the ones. I looked at definitions of each file on fileinfo.com and made theories around them. Once again, it's just a theory not a fact (but definitions of each files is true). If you don't understand, what I'm talking about, here's the page: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Bubsy_3
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Today, I added a lot more info about Bubsy TV Pilot on Bubsy Bobcar Wiki. I hope you like the new info about Bubsy cartoon Link: https://bubsy.fandom.com/wiki/Bubsy_(TV_Pilot)
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. There was a prototype of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, that was (according to the description of it) LESS polished than the original. Which is very interesting. The price was 799$, but no one has ever bought that. However, there is a picture of the cartridge and the tittle screen of it. Theory The theory of this one is 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. One was even found in this commercial. Here are screenshots I've found so far and the comparison. There were two hot dogs in level 4, but there's only one hot dog in the final. In level 7, there was a shark, but not in the final. For this one, it doesn't exist in the final, because I can't find this place. Ok, it's not much different from the final, but it's interesting non the less. Did you know? Interesting enough, there's another NTSC prototype of the same game (with a cartridge), that was found by Nullifidian on Ebay in 2007. It costed €199.95 (or $247.08). There's also a PAL prototype of it.

  11. DoctorClu has found and will buy this: RARE Bubsy 3D - Toys "R" Us VIDPro Display Card It's one of the original VIDPro manufactured cards that were used in Toys "R" Us at one point in time from the '80s to early 2000s. Pretty cool from them, don't you think?
  12. Recently, we found 2 games: 196 in 1, Bubsy 1 & 2 (Mega Drive) 6 in 1, Bubsy 1 & 2 (SNES) We found some new other releases before, but forgot to tell you. Sorry about that 😅 If you wanna check the gallery, here's the link:
  13. Someone on Bubsy Fan Club found the video called: GamesMaster Challenge: Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind It was uploaded by Gamesmaster Uploader. The video is from of a show called GamesMaster, specifically Season 3 and Episode 11. The challenge was to collect as many yarns as possible in 1 minute. It was challengers we're Ian Hutchinson and James Seger. The commentator was Chris Knight, who was ex-editor of Sega Force.
  14. So, if we count all of the re-releases, plug 'n plays and bootlegs we could find, we have: over 50 games! From Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993) to Bubsy Paws on Fire! (2019) Here's the link of releases/re-releases/bootlegs for Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993): https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16820-how-many-ports-of-bubsy-in-claws-encounters-of-the-furred-kind-1993-exist/ Here's the link of releases/re-releases/bootlegs for Bubsy 2: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16824-how-many-ports-of-bubsy-2-1994-exist/ Click here to check Bubsy games
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Today I finally finished Bubsy Pilot Wiki page! Please check it out! It has a lot of interesting facts. From History to Products.
  18. Here's my remake or should I say restoration of Bubsy in Claws Encounters Of The Furred Kind, Official Trailer from 1993. Here's the original trailer: I hope you like my remake of it. It was a lot of work to do, a lot of redraws, making new footage, editing and a lot research. It was a fun work but also a hard one. Anyway, I hope you like it.
  19. 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)
  20. For so many years, Bubsy fans wondered: How fast is Bubsy the Bobcat? Well, I've finally cracked the code! I've finally discovered, how fast he is and I'm happy to show you all. So here we go: First, we have to know, how to calculate speed. Which is easy to calculate by dividing distance with time. For this problem, we'll use Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, level 1. Why? 1.) I chose his first game, because in other Bubsy games, they slow Bubsy down since there are so many obstacles to avoid. Also there are a lot of enemies, like for example in Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales or Bubsy 2. I mean, yea, there are also a lot of enemies in this game, but you can easily avoid them in the first level. Also, Bubsy 2 and Bubsy in Fractured Furry Talesare more like puzzle games. And for Bubsy 3D and his new games, it's hard to calculate the distance. Meanwhile, here it's 16 bit 2D game and you can easily count bits. 2.) I chose level 1, because it looks more simple level than any other levels in this game. In the other levels, there are obstacles, that you have to avoid a lot and that slows Bubsy down. In this, you can just run and avoid enemies easily. Distance (Part 1) Alright, so now, that we know which one to choose, there's another problem: How are we going to calculate the distance in this 16 bit game? I mean, we can't convert pixels to meter, because the results will become small. Well, my friends, we know exactly, how to fix this issue. Bubsy's Height First off, we need to know, how tall Bubsy is. How tall is he? Well, there's no information from official Accolade, how tall he is. So, we have no idea. But someone actually found out. A DeviantArt user named Nox-id actually calculated, how tall he is. How did he do it? Well, remember, when Bubsy had a Nerf Ballzooka in Bubsy 2? Well, that's how he did it. And I'm gonna use his method. First off, let's see, how long Nerf Ballzooka is. According to a Nerf Wiki, Nerf Ballzooka is 55,8 cm. (source: https://nerf.fandom.com/wiki/Ballzooka) With that information, I took a screenshot, when Bubsy shoots a ball. Then I photoshoped a gun, so that it's transparent,then rotated it to vertical and put them on original Bubsy sprite. pixelated (for a proof) We get 2 Nerf Ballzookas. So we do basic math by mutlipying 2 with 55,8 cm and we get: 111,6 cm, or 1,116 m. Distance (Part 2) Anyway, now that we know, how tall he is, what do we do then? Simple, you just rotate Bubsy to 180 degrees and put them on the path. Map Also, thanks to the user named Kurai, I found the map of level 1 (https://www.spriters-resource.com/genesis_32x_scd/bubsyinclawsencountersofthefurredkind/sheet/80819/) After I put them all in the right position, I get 229 characters. Which, we then multiply 229 characters by Bubsy's height. And then we get 255,564 meters. Time So far, we know how far this level is. But what about time? Again it's simple. I use it from Bubsy speedrun (which is 13:47.57) And that person took 23 seconds to finish the first level. Final results And for the final calculation, we use the equation as I told you in the beggining. And boom! We get 11,11 m/s or 24,8 mph or around 25 mph. Fun fact What's really interesting, is that he's fast as an average bobcat (25-30 mph). (https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/bobcat/) Acceleration Also for his acceleration: a=(11,11 m/s -0) :23 a= 0,4830 m/s or 1,080 mph ______________________________________________________________________ (credit to alliedforce35: https://twitter.com/alliedforce777) Final thoughts So today, we learned three things: 1. His speed is around 25 miles per hour, 2. His acceleration is 1,080 miles per hour and 3. He runs as an average bobcat. Credit is all to me! Don't share it without crediting me.
  21. Yesterday, I was working on scene 99 for Bubsy pilot reanimated. I've made half of this scene. I hope you like it
  22. I've recently found the glitch on Bubsy 2 for Gameboy. I basically found the glitch, which you can have infinite life bar! But that wasn't easy to find, because when I made this glitch by an accident, I didn't know what I did. So I had to try it again and again and again, until I found the way to do it. So here's how you do it: Step 1: Go to Bubsy 2 for Gameboy (duh) and choose grand tour. Step 2: When you're here, choose the plane level. Step 3: Finish this level. The next step is a bit hard. Step 4: When you touch the finish line, go down fast as you can. If you do it, this will happen: Then go down some more, and it will automatically go threw the tunnel. Now the next is like this: when you see this rock, go towards the rock, and this is gonna happen: - either you get in and get stuck (which you have to be stuck in it) - or you'll bounce away (if that happens, it won't work) If you get stuck, great! Now you just release bombs quickly by pressing the B button. Then you should hear this sound: 8.mp3 A sound of game over, but cut shortly When you finish it, Bubsy will flash, like this: If that happens, congratulations! You've made the glitch! Now go ahead and choose the level. As you can see there should be a head of Bubsy as a life bar, but when you do the glitch, it's empty. But it won't be empty, when you touch the enemy. This will happen: If you hit more, the sprite will change. And now you have unlimited life bar. But that doesn't mean it's over. There are 3 conditions you have to know: 1. Don't fall damage 2. Don't waste time 3. Don't touch more than 2 checkpoints If you fail them, it will automatically fix itself and then you loose the power. So there you have it. I hope that this trick interested you. I sure like this glitch. If you wanna try it, go ahead and tell me if it works. Credit is all to me!
  23. I'm working on a project called Bubsy Pilo Reanimated 2020 The main person on this project is Xinny The Caracal and many animators are working on this project. Including me. I'm working on 5 scenes: Scene 21,50,55,99 and 154. I'm close to finish all of them, except scene 99. If you wanna see the the finished scenes, go ahead. But we still need some more animators to join on this project, because we still have a lot of scenes to finish it. I just hope that more people joins in and help us finish our project. It will be revealed on Thanksgiving 2020.
  24. One time ago, I found some tricks and glitches from Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. So if you wanna test them, go ahead and try them on the Sega Genesis. 🙂
  25. 1.) The same people made The Moo Family Holiday Hoe-Down (1992). The same Director, same Producers, same Production (Calico Entertainment), same Musicians, same Art Director… It even has close to have the same voiceactors. But Neil Ross wasn't in it and Brian Cummings was in it. 2.) Rob Paulsen, the voiceactor of Bubsy, also voiceacted him for Bubsy 2 (1994) and for Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales (1994). 3.) The cast and the production of it are interesting. Like, did you know, that the writer was Ray De Laurentis, who was a writer for the Fairly Odd Parents (2009-2017) and T.U.F.F. Puppy (2010-2015)? Did you know that it was animated by Sei Young animation, who also animated for Super Mario Bros. Super Show? And did you know, that the voiceactors of it are also the voices of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures... ? Here's more information about its cast and production: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16780-2-the-production-and-cast/ 4.) In Super Bubsy version, they mention "What could possibly go wrong?" phrase 10 times (Bubsy says 8 times, Arnold says 2 times) but in TV version, they cut some of them and they mention 8 times (Bubsy says 6 times, Arnold says 2 times). Not much of a difference, but yea. Even the title is called that. 5.) Bubsy has 8 quotes in this: "What could possibly go wrong?" "I'm a hero for crying out loud!" "I was just testing ya!" "I think I saw Elvis!" "And if that's a crime, then book me!" "I think of something that really blows my hair back." "IIIII like it!" "(Hey turkey! Surronder ; hend over that helmet) before I force to humble you!" 6.) Three of his quotes are from Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind: "What could possibly go wrong?" (He also says that in level 1) "I think I saw Elvis!" (He also says that in level 5: Hey, I thought I saw Elvis back there!) "I think of something that really blows my hair back." (He also says that in level 4: Hey whatever blows your hair back!) And some of the quotes are used later: "IIIII like it!" (He also says that on Bubsy 2 and on Bubsy: the Woolies Strikes Back) "What could possibly go wrong?" (He also says that on Bubsy: the Woolies Strikes Back) 7.) In Bubsy 3D, one of Bubsy's quotes mentions Arnold: "This would've killed Arnold!"[1 time: 2:55] 8.) Oblivia, the assistant of Virgil was created by Michael Berlyn. The reason for it is because he was inspired by his relative.[2 time: 53:00 - 1:33:00] 9.) Speaking of Oblivia, did you know, that in Bubsy: Paws on Fire! (2019) has an easter egg for her. And that is, if you look closer to the wall in this scene, it sprayed "Oblivia was here" 10.) One of the clips that they used is very popular. A footage of Frank Richards (who stops cannonball by his stomach) was also used in many cartoons like "The Chip (Part 1)" of Freakazoid!, the episode "Fairly Oddbaby" of Fairly OddParents. It was also used in the documentary called "Ripley's Believe It or Not!"[3] 11.) At the end, when you see a superhero flying in the sky is actually a scene from a movie called Invaders from Space (1965).[4] 12.) Even tho' the Bubsy TV Pilot failed, there still some products of it. There is even Press kit character model sheets of Ally,Virgil,Oblivia,Buzz and more! Read more about other products in here: https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16788-9-products/ 13.) Someone has an original picture of Bubsy standing on 2 TVs while holding what appears to be a Bubsy Oscar It was also used for the cover of MegaTech (Issue 31) and for promotion of Bubsy 2 on July of 1994. 14.) There was a contest called Bubsy's Watch'n Win Contest. The Grand Prize was going to Hollywood for 3 days and spending 250$!
