Western Animation: Bubsy
Bubsy is an Animated Adaptation of what is arguably the most well known Sonic-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 Virgil Reality inventing a virtual reality helmet that allows one to imagine anything into life. The possibilities about this are never explored.The pilot was never picked up, but it remains an... interesting cartoon nonetheless. It is available on the PC port of Super Bubsy, a deluxe version of the first Bubsy game.
