  1. 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.

  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: 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. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.

    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.
