Spot Goes to Hollywood is a 1995 platform video game released by Virgin Interactive for the Mega Drive/Genesis, Sega Saturn, and PlayStation. It is the sequel to the 1993 game Cool Spot. A SNES version was also in development but was cancelled.
According to a interview with the programmer Ed Margnin, Virgin didn't think that they could sell the minimums required for that version. He said that he completed the version.
Only two prototypes of the SNES version has been known to still exist: one is a early build was found in 2014 (a NintendoAge.com forum thread for this, had since deleted. So, this is from a memory) and a later build that seems to be incomplete (poor/missing enemy AI etc) has since found.
Both of them had no intentions to released ROMs or make reproductions of the version online.
