''Bubsy'' is an AnimatedAdaptation of [[VideoGame/{{Bubsy}} what is arguably the most well known]] ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]''-[[MascotWithAttitude knockoff]] of all time.

It mostly uses the same characters as the game, with a few new ones to take the roles of the villains. The pilot revolves around [[PunnyName Virgil Reality]] inventing a virtual reality helmet that allows one to imagine ''anything'' into life. [[FridgeLogic The possibilities about this]] [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot are never explored.]]

The pilot was never picked up, but it remains an... ''[[BileFascination interesting]]'' cartoon nonetheless.

* TitleThemeTune
* TotallyRadical
* VillainousGlutton: Sid's FatalFlaw.
* TheWoobie: Arnold, dear god, the one character that hates Bubsy, thus making him relatable, spends the entire episode being the subject of all the slapstick in the form of being tortured by Bubsy's little demon niece and nephew, crashing through a roof, getting beaten over the head and getting electrocuted. He apparently suffers from some sort of post-traumatic stress due to raging murderous semis who are genocidally killing his race and none of the punishment he receives is warranted to any degree. He deserves absolutely none of it and it makes the show almost cringeworthy to watch this poor character go through such a mess.
* XRaySparks: Happens ''twice'' to Arnold, and Bubsy ends up electrocuted the second time.
