A quick little tidbit about Fatty Bear...

Post by MrEightThreeOne on Sun Jun 10, 2012 11:08 pm

I know I've said this several times before, but I decided I'd get the word out on a more public place.
So, as many of us know, Fatty Bear mysteriously only got three games (and one of them was a mere repackaging), compared to nearly every other Humongous character that starred in an adventure getting several. The reason for this was unknown for several years. And then this video popped up on YouTube:

It's some footage of the Humongous workplace. If you haven't seen it...well, why are you still reading this? Watch it now! So, I found one of the Humongous alumni members there. She's Lara Schneider, and she did animation mostly on Pajama Sam, but did some others as well. I got in contact with her, and asked her about this. She asked around about it, and Leah Verre responded with this:
"He was owned by another creator who, I believe, wasn't interested in selling the rights or doing anything further with the franchise."
Just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who was curious enough.

So Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise was a LICENSEE?!?! What company made him? Was he originally a plush?

I think she meant that whoever created Fatty Bear didn't want to put him in any further games outside of a cameo appearance. This would be like, for example, Shelley Day leaving the company and not allowing any further Putt-Putt games.

Kinda reminds me of how the DiC Animation didn't want to make another season of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog outside 1992...
