The theme for last week's episode of "Game Showdown" by the Youtube Channel "Kinda Funny Games" was failed 90's platformers. (Yeah I know that one kind of stung...) The first question in the episode was based around Gex, specifically Gex Enter the Gecko. The contestants got a few clues with the first one being "This character can use a tail whip attack and bounce on his tail." I immediately knew it was Gex, but the contestants didn't know with the first clue. However, one of the contestants got it with the second clue. (I honestly forgot what the second clue was. :V I'll have to see if I can find the episode... I know they stream these on Twitch but my wife and I watch them on Youtube.) I just thought it was cool, so I figured I should share this on the forums. :D

Ha I just watched this today.  Can't believe I missed this post. I don't know why they would call Gex a "failure" though. It did have 3 games overall.

The video for those curious -

I agree, Gex isn't a failed 90's mascot. The other ones listed are lesser known, but funny enough I own an almost complete copy of Rocky Rodent for the Super Nintendo! I just don't have the box for it but I have the manual, poster, and game cart in a clear case. I think it's funny the images they show in the thumbnail are their interpretations of Rocky Rodent lol.
