The first Bubsy would have been better remembered if it didn't have one hitpoint, and a ripoff Sonic's speed.
But thanks to Bubsy, and other copycats that tried to be "cool", like a rodent who can throw his hair and pick stuff up with it, a duck with an electric plug in his butt, a literal acrobat who fights against a kamikaze squirrel and an evil clown, a skateboarding dinosaur, a squirrel (that looks like a more famous alcoholic one) that had the most cutesy innocent game with hellish difficulty, the worst environmental message ever from a possum, another possum that flies with a jetpack, and this... thing that is perfect for giving people nausea

People kinda skipped on Plok due to the "mascot with a 'tude" overload. Sure, some of them are actually pretty cool games if you throw out the Sonic copycat thing, but Bubsy more or less killed it. But then again, the most popular platforming mascot after Sonic and Mario came several years later, and was a blatant Plok clone (albeit, a good Plok clone).
