I got around to testing the Bobble Bobble PALs I had, they didnt work.
Tested the ones that are in MAME, they didnt work for me either.
Decided to see if I could read mine back in my programmer, they were unprotected!

I dumped the following:
PAL16R4 @ IC12
PAL16L8 @ IC43
PAL16L8 @ IC49

Converted them to GAL format using PALTOGAL and tested they work.

Maybe worth noting that when I converted the MAME version of the PAL16R4 to GAL and tested it, I got the title screen then an “IC43 fault” error message.
There are many different version of the Bobble Bobble hardware floating about so maybe those were from a different version.
