8. Bubsy, the Bubsy series
Back in 1993, Accolade found itself between two warring parents: Nintendo and SEGA. One had Mario, the other had Sonic. So Accolade decided to come up with its own 2D platforming mascot, a cat named Bubsy. Bubsy looked like a cross between Bill the Cat from the “Bloom County” cartoons and, well, maybe Jazz Jackrabbit and performed about as well as you might expect given that mashup. He was terrible.
