Bubsy, you can't pick-up, you can't throw, punch, kick, claw, scratch, bite or gouge. What's the deal? SNES So Hai (347)

Accolade tried to make Bubsy a Sonic-Killer, he even got a TV Show (although it only lasted one episode.) You can tell, because they tried to give Bubsy a attitude, and a wit.


The title hints at Steven Spielberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
