* FanSequel: ''[[http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/11/13/your-mind-is-not-ready-for-arcane-kids-bubsy-3d/ Arcane Kids' Bubsy 3D]]'' is a surrealist send-up of one, but it does star the long-lost cat, and uses him as a vehicle for some seriously high-minded parody.

The 2-D games received good reviews from critics back in the day and they sold fairly well, although it was frequently considered a Sonic rip-off as well. Afterwards, the franchise transitioned to 3-D with ''Bubsy 3D'', which [[FranchiseKiller killed any goodwill the series had]] as it was considered [[ObviousBeta very bad]] by critics and fans alike.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Hansel and Gretel in ''Fractured Furry Tales''. Sure there are a few versions that make them seem a little more... questionable, this is one of the very few that makes them outright villains. As opposed to the original story, where they only killed the wicked witch after she tried to kill them first, here they apparently kidnapped the witch and locked her in a cage for no reason, and they try to kill Bubsy too when he shows up... by throwing apples at him. Also, it turns out the witch is actually Mother Goose.
