I was doing a search for an article that was printed while Bubsy was still in production for the Jaguar.  While I was searching for that, I discovered a great list of artists, game designers, music, and a producer for Bubsy, Faran Thomason.
(Technical list found at)
http://www.gamespot.com/jaguar/action/bubsyinfracturedfurrytails/tech_info.html


Seemed like a unique name.  Google to the rescue!  And hit gold.  A resume of Faran ...

...that includes not only  Bubsy but many Jaguar game projects.  As well as Lynx.  Here is a summary of Faran's Jaguar accomplishments:

Design Credits
---------------------
Cybermorph

Producer Credits
-----------------------
Baldies (Atari Jaguar CD version?)
Black Ice/White Noise
Brett Hull Hockey
Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales
Charles Barkley Basketball (Atari version?)
Supercross 3-D

Quality Assurance Credits
-----------------------------------
Cybermorph
Dino Dudes
Raiden  (Lynx or Jaguar version?)
Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy

Special Thanks & Product Evaluation/Acquisition
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kasumi Ninja


I just got a message back from Faran, and naturally I'll send an invite to come talk with us on what all the above was like.  However, in the meantime wanted to make you aware of how one of the people on multiple Jaguar products was doing today.

Hey that is a cool interview.  You know he appeared on Atariage recently and has posted a bit more about Bubsy, but more importantly, gave good perspective about how valuable the Atari systems were to stores and how they were received.  Was quite eye opening for me.
