Why? Just why?
18 July 2019 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

After the poorly designed first game with the titular bobcat, many would assume that that game would be all there was, but somehow, there were so much more content with the loudmouth himself afterwards, none of which were really that good. Need I remind you of Bubsy 3D? Funnily enough, there was something before that that may be every bit as bad as that game, and it's this. I'm sorry, but regardless of how much you may like Bubsy, this is the most obnoxious, poorly written, badly structured, and annoying pilot of any TV show ever made. The fact that there was even a show planned on the bobcat is baffling, but what's even more baffling is how little fleshing out there is here. Bubsy is an annoying idiot, there's an armadillo for some reason, there are screaming pointless characters everywhere, the story never really amounts to anything, and the voice acting is ear grating. I like Rob Paulsen, as I think he's a great voice actor, but for as much as I may think that, I think voicing the annoying bobcat was never really a good idea, not just for Rob, but for anyone, because this pilot makes Bubsy look like nothing more or less than an idiot who's got a big mouth with brainless supporting characters. Before I go on to my last point, I want to make clear that I don't hate the character of Bubsy. I think the character, itself, has a lot of potential to be charming, as well as a real standout, but the makers of his games never did a good job conveying that. The absolute best we got with that is the latest entry, "Woolies Strike Back", and even that game was mediocre. My point is that this TV pilot did the worse job of that imaginable, because instead of making him charming, he's, as I've said, an annoying idiot here. Unless you're morbidly curious, I suggest you stay away from this headache of a pilot. I couldn't imagine any more than this, so I'm glad it was canned before it became a series. I still wanna know is why this was made in the first place when the first game wasn't even that good to begin with. Just why?
