Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales was originally intended to be a straight port of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind to the Atari Jaguar, owing to the Jaguar's hardware similarities to the Sega Genesis. It was ultimately decided that, due to the age of Claws Encounters at the time, it would instead be a new game built off of the older game's engine. Accolade were not able to provide source code for Bubsy 2 due to it not having been completed at the time.

Attachment Although the modern perception of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind places it as a generally mediocre-to-bad game, it initially received highly positive scores upon its release in the 1990s.

Accolade's marketing department attempted, and failed, to get Bubsy to wear pants.

Prior to the creation of Bubsy, Accolade tried to encourage Michael Berlyn to use Cheetos mascot Chester Cheetah instead of creating a new character for the game, but Berlyn convinced them by pointing out how creating a new character would be cheaper than licensing out an established mascot.

When Bubsy creator Micheal Berlyn pitched the game idea, it was initially denied, with his producer claiming "Go back to writing stories, that's all you know" (refering to Berlyn's history in text adventure games). When Berlyn asked for an option to prove his platforming know-how, they asked for him to write an analysis of Sonic the Hedgehog and why it works as a game. Berlyn would spend 10 hours a day playing Sonic in order to write an essay about the game, and Bubsy got the greenlight, though he did have to find a different producer.

Before settling on the artificially-sped-up voice that Bubsy would get in the final game, other accents in consideration for Bubsy were a Brooklyn accent and a Yiddish accent.

Bubsy's catchphrase, "what could possibly go wrong?", originated as a self-deprecating catchphrase from the Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind development team when the game ran into issues. Another phrase in consideration was "Whatever blows your hair back!", which Bubsy would say in the opening to Chapter 4: Fair Conditioning in the final game.

The password for Level 4: Fair Conditioning is "MKBRLN", short for Mike Berlyn, the creator of Bubsy.
