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

As expected, the series (had it ever gotten past the pilot stage) would have been managed and created by Creator/{{DiC}}, well-known for their numerous cartoon adaptations of popular video games in the 80's and 90's.

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. It is available on the PC port of ''Super Bubsy'', a deluxe version of the first Bubsy game.
