YMMV: Bubsy

YMMV items for the games:

YMMV items for the cartoon:

  • Bile Fascination: Pretty much the only reason to watch this. It's suggested that you do so with the aid of The Annotated Series.
  • Colbert Bump: It definitely got a boost after it was riffed by The Annotators.
  • Drinking Game: Take a drink every time Bubsy says, "What could possibly go wrong?"
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The idea of a helmet than can shape reality through the user's imagination would later be used in Can You Imagine That? (and to a lesser extent in Trouble Island).
  • Most Annoying Sound: "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?". Hell Bubsy's voice in general is so obnoxious it'll make your ears bleed before the show's over. There's a reason Rob Paulson considers this pilot an Old Shame.
  • The Woobie: 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.
