Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

Animated series

Not to be confused with Sonic Adventure.

Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is an animated series that was based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series produced by Sega of America,[1]DIC Animation City, Bohbot Entertainment and the Italian studio Reteitalia S.p.A. in association with Spanish network Telecinco. Airing during the fall of 1993, 65 episodes were produced, which was syndicated by Bohbot Entertainment in the United States. The series inspired a video game, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, which features several original characters from the series. Furthermore, other elements, such as Sonic's fondness for chili dogs, would be featured in later video games and media of the franchise. Additionally, on November 24, 1996, USA Network aired "Sonic Christmas Blast", a Christmas special which was produced to promote Sonic 3D Blast (originally meant for the ultimately cancelled Sonic X-treme).


Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is a comical, light-hearted and gag-driven adventure series based on the titular character Sonic the Hedgehog, a sometimes arrogant yet kind-hearted and mischievous teenage hedgehog with the power to move at supersonic speeds. Sonic, along with his idolizing young friend Tails, regularly oppose the main antagonist Dr. Robotnik, his robot henchmen Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts, and thwart their plans to conquer their home planet of Mobius.[2] The series features a short PSA segment titled "Sonic Says" at the end of each episode excluding Sonic Christmas Blast; these segments were written by Phil Harnage.[3]



  • Sonic the Hedgehog – The main character of the series. Sonic works to defend Mobius from the threat of Dr. Robotnik.
  • Tails – A two-tailed fox who is Sonic's best friend.


  • Doctor Ivo Robotnik – An evil mad scientist who uses robots and inventions in order to take over Mobius. His headquarters is a fortress atop Mobius' tallest mountain, where he uses his Robo-Matic Machine to create robots called Badniks to aid him in his plots.
  • Scratch – A dimwitted chicken-type Badnik who is one of Dr. Robotnik's henchmen. Originally, Dr. Robotnik wanted the Robo-Matic Machine to create a super robot, only for it to produce Scratch instead due to a malfunction. He is the older brother of Grounder, both of whom work to catch Sonic which with comical results.
  • Grounder – Scratch's younger brother; an equally dimwitted mole-type Badnik with drills for a nose and hands and tank treads for legs who was created by Dr. Robotnik when he put one of Scratch's tail feathers into the Robo-Matic Machine.
  • Coconuts – A cynical monkey-type Badnik who was created before Scratch and Grounder. At some point, he was demoted to working as Dr. Robotnik's janitor and is often trying to impress him by outdoing Scratch and Grounder in stopping Sonic to no avail. He is shown to be somewhat smarter than Scratch and Grounder, and is shown to have his own styled gadgets in his attempts of defeating Sonic.

Other characters[edit]

  • Breezie – A beautiful hedgehog-type Badnik created by Dr. Robotnik in a plot to get rid of Sonic. She initially manipulated Sonic into falling in love with her and giving her various gifts, but when she realized that Sonic really did care for her and does not see her as a robot, she developed genuine romantic feelings for him and betrayed and left Dr. Robotnik's services. Breezie later met Robotnik Jr. who later developed a crush on her.
  • Momma Robotnik – The mother of Dr. Robotnik who is even worse than her son. While kept in an asylum called the Mobius Home for Really Bizarre Mothers, she tends to escape on occasion and her insanity even scares Dr. Robotnik.
  • Wes Weasely – A weasel who works as a salesman at H.D.S.V.A.D.L. (Handy Dandy Super Villain Appliance Distributors Limited) company. He would often sell devices to Dr. Robotnik that would either fail because of either Sonic's ingenuity or Scratch and Grounder's incompetence.
  • Sergeant Doberman – A Doberman Pinscher who is a retired army sergeant and a known war hero.
  • Professor Von Schlemmer – A brilliant but eccentric and kooky scientist who is an ally of Sonic and Tails.
  • Professor Caninestine – A highly-intelligent dog scientist that invents gadgets for Sonic to use. Dr. Robotnik once captured him and had him build a time machine in order to steal four Chaos Emeralds in different time periods.
  • Captain Rescue – A retired superhero raccoon who briefly came out of retirement to help Sonic defeat Robotnik.
  • Robotnik Jr. – A diminutive and Robotnik-resembling Badnik that Robotnik initially created to be his son and carry on his legacy when he passes away. Unfortunately, he defects from his creator and sides with Sonic. Jr. later fell in love with Breezie.

Unaired pilot[edit]



Main episodes[edit]



Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog was created by DIC Animation City (in association with Sega of America whose CEO Tom Kalinske and newly appointed consumer products director Michealene Risley licensed the characters to DIC), which produced a total of 65 episodes for its one season, and was syndicated by Bohbot Entertainment, later known as BKN International (in the original run, every episode began and ended with the "Bohbot Entertainment Presents" logo), and the Italian Reteitalia S.p.A., part of Fininvest. The show's animation was outsourced to four animation studios:

Additionally, some of the storyboards were done by Spanish animation studio Milimetros Dibujos Animados, which also worked on the animation for the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon and main title animation for Sonic Underground.

According to Robby London, DIC originally made a deal to produce only the Saturday morning Sonic series for the ABC network. The cartoon was originally planned to be more light-hearted compared to the final product, as reflected by its pilot episode, early promotional material found in Fleetway's Sonic the Comic[9][10] and the early issues of Sonic the Hedgehog comics by Archie, which were based on the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon. However, DIC also wanted to go further and produce additional episodes for weekday syndication as well, similar to what DIC has previously done with The Real Ghostbusters, but Mark Pedowitz, ABC's senior vice president of business affairs and contracts, expected Sonic to air exclusively on ABC and rejected the idea, telling London "If you guys want to do syndication, be our guest, go with God, but you won’t be on our network." ABC would not agree to the deal until London came with a proposition that DIC would produce a separate, vastly different Sonic show for syndication instead, the end result of which became Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. As a result, the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon was made darker and more serious in order to differentiate itself from the syndicated Sonic cartoon.[11][12]

Broadcast and distribution[edit]

First-run broadcast[edit]

The series was shown through syndication in the United States in 1993 on weekday afternoons. In the United Kingdom, the series was screened on Channel 4 in 1993 on Sunday mornings at 9:00, but with the "Sonic Says" segments edited out. They were also edited out on The Children's Channel and the UK VHS releases of the series. The weekday mornings airings in Australia on Seven Network as part of Agro's Cartoon Connection retained the segments. The cartoon was broadcast in the Republic of Ireland on RTÉ Two from 12 September to December 1994 on weekday afternoons with the segments retained also.[13]

Rebroadcast and international airings[edit]

USA Network re-aired the original episodes of the show in the United States from 1994 to 1996 (with an additional Christmas special ordered by Sega to be produced for the Christmas season of 1996 to coincide with the release of Sonic 3D Blast). The series later returned to syndication as part of the BKN block from 1997 to 1998, and later BKN Kids II from 1999 until 2000. Toon Disney would start broadcasting the series in September 1998, and aired on the channel until 2002.

This TV subsequently aired the first 13 episodes of the show from 2010 to 2011 on their Cookie Jar Toons block. The series was also available on Netflix, containing the 20 episodes. In December 2018, reruns of the series began airing on Starz. Later starting on September 3, 2019, the show aired its reruns on the streaming service Pluto TV for the first time.

In the UK, Channel 4 and Pop re-aired the show with the "Sonic Says" segments restored.

In Italy, the show aired on Italia 1.

In Spain, that show aired on Telecinco.

The show was re-aired on in Australia Saturday mornings on Network Ten as part of Cheez TV from 1993 to 1999, and also aired on Nick Jr. and Disney Channel.

In Brazil, the show aired in January 1996, on Rede Globo on the block TV Colosso. Only the first 22 of 65 episodes aired in Brazilian Portuguese, as well as the Christmas special. The show also aired in Sweden on TV3, in Portugal on SIC, in The Netherlands on RTL4, in Germany on Kabel 1 and RTL II and in 2000 in Arab countries on Spacetoon and Qatar Television.

The series also aired on KidsCo, as with many other DIC-produced cartoons.

Home media[edit]

North America[edit]

In 1994, Buena Vista Home Video through their DIC Toon-Time Video label, released 6 VHS tapes of the series each containing 2 episodes.

Shout! Factory have released all 65 episodes of the series on DVD in Region 1 in three volume sets. The first volume, released on July 17, 2007, features the first 22 episodes along with two featurettes: "A Conversation With Artist Milton Knight" and "How to Draw Sonic the Hedgehog". The second volume was released on December 9, 2008, and features episodes 23–44 with the featurette "How to Draw Dr. Robotnik". The third volume contains the final 21 episodes of the series, plus the "Sonic Christmas Blast" special and the featurette "How to Draw Tails". These episodes were not compiled in the correct airdate order in the final volume. These sets were discontinued in 2012 along with Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground after Shout!'s deal with Cookie Jar Entertainment expired.

From 2007-2010, NCircle Entertainment released a number of single disc releases of the series.

Invincible Pictures re-released the complete series set on August 13, 2019 (originally scheduled for April 9, 2019 and July 16, 2019).[14]

The series along with its successors Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground is available on the streaming services Paramount+ and Tubi.


Throughout 1993-1994, Abbey Home Entertainment through their Tempo Video label released 8 VHS volumes of the series each containing an assortment of episodes. PolyGram Video through their 4Front Video label would also release a VHS tape of the series in 1997.

In Region 2, Delta Home Entertainment released Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog: The Complete Series on DVD in the UK on June 11, 2007.[15]

Broadcast UK history[edit]


Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog received mixed reception. Randy Miller III of DVDTalk said, "While it's obvious that The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog [sic] won't ever be mentioned in the same sentence with Disney, Pixar or Studio Ghibli (except for this one), there's enough goofy fun here to entertain any resident of the 16-bit gaming era."[16] Michael Rubino of DVD Verdict criticized the series for being dated, contrived, and bloated with chili dog jokes.[17]GamesRadar listed the series as one of "the worst things to happen to Sonic." It commented that it "made Ren & Stimpy look like a rigid, strictly story driven opus of animation", and criticized the supporting cast as "wholly uninteresting, unfunny and just all around annoying."[18] Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media gave the series an overall rating of 3/5 and noted that while the show's pace is "frantic", "the series emphasizes positive themes for kids about personal safety and interpersonal relationships."[19] Bob Mackey of USgamer wrote that the show's attempts to emulate Looney Tunes and The Ren & Stimpy Show "were done in by the lack of quality control that typically plagued 65-episode syndicated series", and that "the zippy, timing-reliant slapstick Adventures relied on never stood a chance against the animation sweatshops DIC regularly used to pump out their nearly endless supply of televised content."[20]Ian Flynn, writer for the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series by Archie Comics, remarked that Adventures was the closest to "[getting] Sonic right" despite "fail[ing] on the details", although he observed that the show's gags were "polarizing" and that the guest characters "ranged from tired tropes (Breezie) to Saturday Night Live knockoffs (Da Bears)".[21] Pierre DeCelles, who worked on the show as a Senior Animation Director at Hong Ying animation studio, has described the show as "fun and humorous".[7]

'Sonic the Hedgehog' Series Ranked from Worst to First

By Dave Trumbore


Gotta go faster, faster, fasterfasterfaster!

Sonic the Hedgehog is about to race into theaters this weekend for the iconic Sega character's first big-screen adventure. But Sonic & Co. have been streaking across the small screen in various animated adaptations since 1993. The character and his franchise has enjoyed nearly 30 years of success after the 1991 debut of the speedster in his title video game. Those three decades have seen numerous iterations of Sonic's design, voice acting, storytelling tone, mythology, and animation styles, some better than others and all a part of the canon. But is there a best among the bunch?

We revisited nearly 30 years of Sonic the Hedgehog to suss out the merits of all five animated series. Some are more slapsticky while others are more semi-serious and action-focused. Some embrace elements of mythology, like the importance of the Rings and whether or not Sonic can really swim. All of them feature Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik in one form or another, and nearly all of them feature a "sexy" character for some reason (though Sally Acorn, Breezie the Hedgehog, and Rouge the Bat do make for creative Furry / cosplay options.)

Here are all the titles, in case you weren't familiar with them all, in the order they were released; our ranking (from worst to first) follows afterwards, and remember that your mileage (per hour) may vary:

5) The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

Hyper hedgehog Sonic and his cohort Miles "Tails" Prower defend the planet Mobius against Dr. Robotnik and his evil schemes in this animated series.

If you like your Sonic on the manic, slapstick, and silly side, then this might be the animated series for you ... but it is definitely not for me. The Looney Tunes-like take on the material made for a bunch of high-speed hijinks with sparse, sketchy animation provided by an international foursome of studios: China's Suzhou/Rainbow Animation, Taiwan's Hong Ying Animation, Korea's Sae Rom Production, and Japan's Tokyo Movie Shinsha, all produced by DiC Animation City through a licensing deal from Sega. Even with all that talent, the show looks rather rough. It did, however, give us Jaleel White as the wise-cracking Sonic, which is the only plus in this piece for me.

AoStH was more episodic than not, and that was by design. Each standalone episode was just produced for laughs rather than anything grander. That's fine, but it didn't tap into the character's mythology like later shows managed to do. (And don't even get me started on the "Sonic Says" PSAs; simpler times.) If you like this version and didn't get enough in the series' 65 syndicated episodes. there's also the Christmas special / planned promotional tie-in, Sonic's Christmas Blast.

4) Sonic Underground

Sonic, Manic and Sonia must fight Dr. Robotnik and his two sidekicks, Sleet and Dingo and the SWAT Bots, with the aid of their metal medallions and bring peace to Mobius and find mother!

Though this last series of the 20th Century dug into a new mythology created from whole cloth, it stands apart from the rest of the franchise because of this storytelling decision. (Oh and it definitely features the (chili) cheesiest theme song.) The story opts for not one but three hedgehog heroes. The planet Mobius' ruling hedgehog, Queen Aleena, had three triplets: Sonic, Manic, and Sonia. Here's how she introduces the conflict:

There was a time when Robotropolis was beautiful. It was then a peaceful city known as "Mobotropolis". But just after my children were born, the evil Doctor Robotnik used his technology... to turn our world... into a place of terror. As the source of Robotnik's money, the aristocrats were left to play, while our people were roboticized... and became slaves. Our royal family was outlawed, a price placed on our heads. Then, the Oracle of Delphius revealed the prophecy to me:"Some day, you will reunite with your children to become the Council of Four... and overthrow Robotnik. But there is a price, Your Highness."For the prophecy to be fulfilled, I had to give up my babies.

Sounds pretty dark, right? But the story about prophecy and planetary coups and heroic siblings rising to battle their oppressor and reunite with their mother is, somehow, almost as silly as Adventures. Sonic is still Sonic, mostly, while brother Manic is a kleptomaniac and sister Sonia is just kind of a stereotypical "Female" character. How silly is it? Well, there's very little focus on actual action sequences, super-speed, or mythology at all, and the trio occasionally breaks into a musical number to bring the story to a grinding halt.

There are 40 episodes to enjoy here, and the voice acting smooths out a bit over time (though it starts a little rough, even with White returning to voice Sonic). And while the animation itself is a little more action-focused than slapstick-centered, courtesy of DIC Productions and its French subsidiary Les Studios Tex, the plot doesn't keep pace. Sonic Underground is only slightly better than the worst of the bunch here, but if you liked AoStH for its comic appeal, this one might be worth checking out.

3) Sonic Boom

It’s a Sonic you haven’t seen before — an ensemble comedy that pokes fun at action-adventure storytelling, but still manages to deliver plenty of adrenaline. Think malfunctioning giant tech-monsters, bizarre inventions, evil interns, and ridiculous conversations at high speeds. Our blue dude is the star of the show. But wherever he goes and whatever he’s up against, Sonic is aided by his sidekick, Tails, and his friends Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks and, of course, attacked by his arch nemesis, Dr. Eggman. The series is set in a wide-open world, where most of the characters live in and around an unnamed village. Just over the horizon is a vast landscape filled with beaches, jungles, mountains, undersea civilizations, cloud cities, frozen lakes, and more!

I had high hopes for this most recent take on Sonic, especially since Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and Sticks bring a fresh look to the franchise with a CG design and high-def presentation. The series also had supervision from Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka who crafted it more for Western audiences after the previous Sonic X had, perhaps, leaned too far in the Eastern anime direction. It was a product of Sega of America, Inc. and Technicolor Animation Productions, and was mostly seen in the States on Cartoon Network before moving to Boomerang. But is all that pedigree a good indication of a solid series?

For starters, there's no real theme song to speak of, something that was a strength of previous series (as did most cartoons before the 2010s, which is when people lost the entirety of their attention span, apparently). This makes more sense when you consider that the two seasons consisted of 52 11-minute segments; short, silly, episodic adventures featuring a cast of both new and familiar characters. The CG characters do take some getting used to; basically, this design looks like the movie's first version of Sonic while the current design in the movie is closer to the classic Sonic.

The series tries to keep the franchise's balance of action and comedy but leans way too far into the comedy direction for me. The speed of Sonic is on display early, which I appreciate, but it doesn't seem to last throughout the series itself; it's a bug instead of a feature, which is an odd decision. So despite the solid voice cast (Roger Craig Smith, Colleen Villard, Travis Willingham, Cindy Robinson, Nika Futterman, and Mike Pollock) and a story that has moments of progressive social attitudes, Sonic Boom isn't my speed. Bummer.

2) Sonic X

A malfunction sends Sonic the Hedgehog to Earth where he meets Chris, who helps collect Chaos Emeralds so Sonic and friends can go home.

I honestly was not expecting to enjoy Sonic X as much as I did. But from the unique anime stylings, a story and tone that feels like a spiritual sequel to the original Sonic series, and a blending of Mobius and Earth in the storyline, Sonic X almost edged out the original series for my top ranking. (I honestly went back and forth on these two a number of times.)

From TMS Entertainment and Hajime Kamegaki's direction, the series has seen quite the international tour. It began on TV Tokyo with a 52-episode run, followed by 26 additional episodes seen in Western territories. The 4Kids Entertainment localization was criticized for its heavy-handed editing (though arguably cutting out the more sexual scenes was a good move for the kids cartoon) but it also brought Jason Griffith into the role of Sonic, keeping the familiar wisecracking style that the iconic cartoon character became known for. (If you watch on Hulu, you can choose between the dub or original version with subtitles!) Other than that, Sonic X sets itself apart.

This series has the best animation of the bunch, an amped-up action-focused version of the '93 series with plenty of explosions, gunfire, exciting music, and a showcase of Sonic's speed to set things off. Arguably, this theme song is either the best or second-best (at least here in the States). This is also the first time since the '93 series we see some decent ring mythology built into the story early on, too. Even the bots get an upgrade as some well-designed mecha monstrosities, bringing even more anime flavor to the proceedings.

The only place that Sonic X falters a bit is in its pacing; it's still faster than the 90s series by far, but it's slowed down a bit by the introduction of various Earth-based human organizations (the police force, the S Team, etc.). What's more interesting are the relationships between Sonic & Co. and the kids they meet on Earth. Chris Thorndyke not only gives viewers a character to more specifically identify with (not that we really needed one for earlier Sonic stories), he plays an important part in the plot. They work together to recover the Chaos Emeralds and get Sonic and his pals back home. And while the human characters may not be the most dynamic, the fan-favorite Sonic franchise creations show up by the bucket-load in this series. It was a very close race for the top spot, but Sonic X needed to go faster, faster, fasterfasterfaster to catch up to ...

1) Sonic the Hedgehog

In a post-apocalyptic and dystopian future, all life has been challenged by oppression and tyranny, as the evil Dr. Robotnik is on the verge of controlling Mobius.

The OG. The Cream (the Rabbit) of the Crop. The Best of the Best.

If you, like me, have been waiting for a more action-focused Sonic, this is the series for you! It's tied for the oldest series of the bunch and is, oddly, a product of the same production companies as AoStH, but it stands heads and Tails (sorry) above that sillier series. (Oh and it clearly has what's arguably the best theme song of the bunch, just edging out Sonic X, in my humble opinion.)

Anchored by Jaleel White and KathSoucie's voice acting, the titular series sees Sonic and Princess Sally Acorn leading a band of freedom fighters in a rebellious battle against Dr. Robotnik (whose a very Dr. Claw-like villain in this version, which I love). The darker, more serious take on the material actually explores an interesting mythology in which a master of war machines overthrows the Kingdom of Acorn on the planet Mobius. Sonic, leading the insurgency that's populated by many and varied characters, has the benefit of not just super-speed but power rings that boost his natural abilities in order to take down Robotnik and his minions. Comedy takes a back seat pretty much throughout the two seasons and the too few 26 episodes. But while our heroes are (spoiler alert) victorious in the end, the series ends with a cliffhanger of sorts promising more adventures to come in a third season ... which never happened. That's a bummer. But hopefully Sonic the Hedgehog does well in theaters and inspires yet another animated iteration to come, whatever that may be!

Sonic the Hedgehog really does deliver an action-packed Sonic story that's above and beyond the others in this list, and it's worth giving it another look ahead of the big-screen adventure this weekend. But you certainly have your own opinion, so be sure to let us know what you think the best Sonic is!

Sonic the Hedgehog (TV series)

Italian-American animated television series

Sonic the Hedgehog is an animated television series based on the video game series of the same name. It was story edited by Len Janson and produced by DIC Productions, L.P., Sega of America, Inc., and the Italian studio Reteitalia S.p.A. in association with Telecinco.[3] It is the second of DiC's Sonic cartoons, following Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. It features a more dramatic and dark story than the lighter Adventures series,[4] depicting Sonic as a member of a band of freedom fighters battling to overthrow Doctor Robotnik, now a despotic dictator who conquered their home planet Mobius years prior, ruling it as a polluted industrial dystopia. To distinguish it from other Sonic the Hedgehog media, the series is commonly referred to by fans as "SatAM", in reference to its Saturday morning timeslot.[5]

The program aired for two seasons with a total of 26 episodes on ABC from September 18, 1993 to December 3, 1994,[6] and continued in reruns until 1995. A third season was planned, but ABC canceled the show, ending it with a cliffhanger. Despite its cancellation, a fan following has elevated the series to become a cult hit.[7] The show also inspired a video game, Sonic Spinball, and a long-running comic book series of the same name.


The series takes place on Mobius, a planet mostly populated by anthropomorphic animals. The Kingdom of Acorn, based within the city of Mobotropolis, was at war with an unseen enemy. The King recruited a human scientist, Julian, to build war machines to end the war with a victory. However, during peacetime, Julian and his nephew Snively launched a coup d'état against the kingdom. The King is banished to another dimension, the Void, and the citizens are captured and transformed into robot slaves, through a machine called the Roboticizer. Julian renames himself as Dr. Robotnik, now the ruthless dictator of Mobius. Mobotropolis is renamed Robotropolis, a polluted, industrial cityscape.

Robotnik finds himself at odds with a small collective group called the Freedom Fighters, who operate out of the hidden woodland village Knothole. They are led by Sonic the Hedgehog and Princess Sally Acorn, the King's sole heir. Other members include Sonic's best friend Miles "Tails" Prower, computer genius Rotor the Walrus, Frenchcoyote Antoine Depardieu, half-roboticized Bunnie Rabbot, and Dulcy the Dragon. They act as a rebellion against Robotnik's regime. Sonic uses the Power Rings to gain a temporary boost in power. Both the rings and the Roboticizer were designed by Sonic's uncle Chuck, one of the victims of the machine.

Early on in the series, Sonic uses a Power Ring to restore Uncle Chuck's free will in his mechanical body. Chuck decides to act as a spy for the Freedom Fighters, operating from within the city. He is eventually discovered by Robotnik in the second season, and escapes to Knothole. Sally searches for her father during the series. He is found alive within the Void, shared with a sorcerer, Naugus, who was also imprisoned within the dimension by Robotnik. Naugus attempts to escape the Void, but both he and the King discover their bodies turn to crystal whilst back on Mobius, and are forced to return to their prison. The heroes gain other allies, including Ari the Ram, and Lupe, leader of the elusive wolf pack.

In the series' sole two-part episode, "Blast to the Past", Sonic and Sally use the Time Stones to travel back in time, in an attempt to prevent Robotnik's planned takeover. They fail, but manage to get their younger selves to the safety of Knothole, with help from Sally's nanny Rosie Woodchuck. In the series finale, Robotnik builds the Doomsday Project to destroy the population. The Freedom Fighters launch a full scale attack against Robotnik, with Sonic and Sally destroying the Doomsday Project with the power of the Deep Power Stones. Robotnik is caught in the destruction and is utterly destroyed along with Doomsday, and the Freedom Fighters declare victory, with Sonic and Sally kissing.

In a final scene, Snively becomes the main antagonist, accompanied by an unseen ally with red eyes. Ben Hurst, one of the series' writers, confirmed the figure was Naugus.


Knothole Freedom Fighters[edit]

  • Sonic (the) Hedgehog (voiced by Jaleel White as a young man, Tahj Mowry as a boy) – Sonic is the main protagonist of the series. He is able to run at superhuman speed, and is the only freedom fighter capable of using magical rings called Power Rings. Sonic has an impatient and head-strong personality, but is also fearless, heroic, and well-meaning. He always mockingly refers to Robotnik as "Ro-butt-nik".
  • Princess Sally Alicia Acorn (voiced by Kath Soucie as a young woman, Lindsay Ridgeway as a girl) – A chipmunk who is the rightful princess of Mobotropolis and Sonic's love interest. As a strategist and leader of the Knothole Freedom Fighters, she is knowledgeable and the voice of reason. Sally tries to keep Sonic grounded. She is known for her compassion and master diplomacy.
  • Bunnie Rabbot (voiced by Christine Cavanaugh) – A rabbit with a southern accent. Half of her body was roboticized, leaving her left arm and both legs mechanical. She is skilled in martial arts, and wants to be returned to normal.
  • Antoine "Ant" Depardieu (voiced by Rob Paulsen) – A coyote with a French accent whose awkwardness often places the others in danger and gets him captured. He has some difficulty speaking English. He has romantic feelings for Princess Sally, and attempts to impress her. However, his selfishness hinders this goal. Sonic often teases Antoine over his shortcomings.
  • Rotor (voiced by Mark Ballou in season one, Cam Brainard in season 2) – A walrus, and the mechanic of Knothole Village. He provides the Knothole Freedom Fighters with useful inventions, and accompanies them on infiltrations.
  • Tails (voiced by Bradley Pierce) – A young two-tailed fox who idolizes Sonic. While usually left behind in Knothole, he proves useful in deadly missions.
  • Nicole (voiced by Kath Soucie) – A portable computer that Sally uses to hack into Robotnik's technology. Nicole speaks in a female monotone, and exhibits artificial intelligence. It is indicated that Sally received Nicole from her father.
  • Dulcy (voiced by Cree Summer) – A young dragon, who provides the Knothole Freedom Fighters with transportation. Sporting powerful lungs, Dulcy can blow enemies away and burn/freeze them with fire or ice breath. She has trouble landing, and often crashes mid-flight. She was introduced in Season 2.


  • Dr. Julian Robotnik (voiced by Jim Cummings) – A warlord who seeks to cover Mobius in machinery and transform its population into robotic slaves by roboticizing them. He is chiefly opposed by the Knothole Freedom Fighters. Robotnik's obsession with destroying Sonic is often his downfall. In this version, his real first name is Julian, adopting the moniker "Robotnik" after his takeover.
    • Cluck (vocal effects provided by Frank Welker) – A robotic chicken, and the only creature Robotnik shows affection towards.
    • Snively (voiced by Charlie Adler) – Robotnik's assistant and nephew. He is constantly abused by his uncle. As such, Snively hates Robotnik and plots behind his back.
    • Swat-Bots (voiced by Jim Cummings and Frank Welker) – Robotnik's primary henchmen and foot soldiers.
  • Naugus (voiced by Michael Bell) – A powerful sorcerer, who resents Robotnik for betraying and imprisoning him within the Void. He desires retribution, but he cannot escape without crystallizing.


  • Sir Charles "Chuck" Hedgehog (voiced by William Windom) – Sonic's uncle, and the inventor of the Roboticizer before Robotnik stole it. He was roboticized and made into one of Robotnik's slaves, until Sonic restored his memory. He serves as a spy for the Freedom Fighters. According to Robby London, he was named after the writer and animator, Chuck Menville, who passed away in 1992.[8]
  • Ari Ram (voiced by Dorian Harewood) – A Freedom Fighter who worked as a double agent for Robotnik, only to be betrayed later and trapped in the Void. He is later rescued by Sonic and joins the Knothole Freedom Fighters.
  • King Acorn (voiced by Tim Curry) – The former king of Mobotropolis and Sally's father. He was banished to the Void during Robotnik's takeover, and like Naugus, cannot escape without crystallizing. But before returning to the Void, he gives Sally the list of all the Freedom Fighter groups in Mobius, telling her to find them and unify them under her banner so they can be strong enough to overthrow Robotnik once and for all.
  • Lupe Wolf (voiced by Shari Belafonte) – Leader of the Wolfpack Freedom Fighters, and one of the Knothole Freedom Fighters' allies in the fight against Robotnik.

Sonic the Hedgehog was created by DiC Animation City in association with Sega of America, which produced a total of 26 episodes for its two-season run, and the Italian studio Reteitalia S.p.A., part of Fininvest company, in association with Spanish network Telecinco. The show's animation was outsourced to the Korean studio Sae Rom Production and Spanish studio Milimetros.

Before production began, Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske and its newly appointed consumer products director Michealene Risley approached DiC Entertainment's CEO Andy Heyward and the ABC network to produce a television show featuring Sonic. After being shown the character, Heyward agreed to make the show and was granted the license. According to Robby London, DiC originally made a deal to produce only the Saturday morning Sonic series for the ABC network. The cartoon was originally planned to be more light-hearted compared to the final product, as reflected by its pilot episode, early promotional material found in Fleetway's Sonic the Comic[10][11] and the early issues of Sonic the Hedgehog comics by Archie, which were based on the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon. However, DiC also wanted to go further and produce additional episodes for weekday syndication as well, similar to what DiC has previously done with The Real Ghostbusters, but Mark Pedowitz, the then-senior vice president of business affairs and contracts at ABC, who expected the Sonic cartoon to air exclusively on ABC, rejected the idea, telling London "If you guys want to do syndication, be our guest, go with God, but you won’t be on our network." ABC would not agree to the deal until London came with a proposition that DiC would produce a separate, vastly different Sonic show for syndication instead, the end result of which became Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. As a result, the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon was made darker and more serious in order to distinguish itself from the syndicated Sonic cartoon.[12][13][14] The show bible for the Saturday morning Sonic cartoon was written in February 1992[15] with the final revision made on March 10, 1993.[16]


Series overview[edit]

Season 1 (1993)[edit]

Season 2 (1994)[edit]

Broadcast and distribution[edit]

Initial run[edit]

The Saturday morning series differs from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, which premiered two weeks earlier and aired on weekday afternoons in syndication. While Adventures is lighthearted and comical, Sonic the Hedgehog featured a comparatively complex plot and dramatic atmosphere. It explored unusual story concepts for animation, including losing loved ones to war[30] and relationships focusing on young couples.[31][4] While featuring a darker tone in comparison to Adventures, the Saturday morning show's first season had an episodic structure and aired out of order, however the second season featured a story arc (which would've continued in the later seasons, had the show not been cancelled). At ABC's request, the second season included episodes devoted to humor, while darker and dramatic elements were reduced. Other changes in season two include Princess Sally donning a jacket, Dulcy the Dragon being added to the cast and Rotor receiving a new design. The theme song was also changed in the second season with the Season 2 version being later used for all subsequent airings of the first season, both domestically and internationally, as well as the home media releases. ABC also ended up, in some weeks, airing back-to-back episodes of this show during the 1st season, while in Season 2, each time slot for the show was for a single episode only.[32]


After the program's initial run, it appeared on the USA Network's Action Extreme Team block from June 1997 to January 1998. ABC did not replicate this, replacing Sonic with reruns of Free Willy. Sonic the Hedgehog aired in Canada on the CTV Network, with a bonus summer run between June 10 and September 2, 1995. It has not been rerun on broadcast or cable television in Canada since its cancellation on CTV, but was present on the Shomi video-on-demand platform until its November 30, 2016, closure. In 2004, it started airing on Spacetoon TV in the MENA region until May 2015. All romance scenes have been censored.[citation needed] From 1994 to 1996, it had a complete run on the UK television on ITV and Channel 4, In December 1994, the first season was broadcast in the Republic of Ireland on RTÉ2.[33] On September 2, 2016, reruns of the series began airing on Starz.[34] As of 2020, the show can be found on Pluto TV and on demand at Paramount+, as well as YouTube. On March 15, 2021, it began airing in Malaysia on new kids channel named TA-DAA!.[35]

In other media[edit]


Main article: Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics)

Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic book was initially based on the Saturday morning cartoon.[38] From its earliest issues, the book shared the characters and story premise established within it. However, the comic differed in that it featured humorous plots modeled after the weekday show.[39] After writer Ken Penders had the opportunity to view the Saturday morning program, the comic gradually became adventure-driven.[40] The comic series shifted focus again after ABC cancelled Sonic the Hedgehog, developing into a relationship-basedsuperhero story, and following a reboot, Archie's Sonic was primarily inspired by the video game series. Nevertheless, the characters and locales from the Saturday morning cartoon remained prominent until the comic's cancellation in July 2017.[38]

Video games[edit]

Several video games were intended to use elements from the TV series, although only one was completed. This was Sonic Spinball, released in 1993 for the Sega Genesis. It contained characters from the show, including Princess Sally, Bunnie Rabbot, Rotor and Muttski. The characters were also planned for use in another game, tentatively titled Sonic-16.[41] A prototype was created by the Sega Technical Institute. Yuji Naka disliked the project, and it was cancelled without further development.[41] Directly afterwards, the same team worked on Sonic Mars. Prior to cancellation, this would have featured Princess Sally and Bunnie Rabbot as playable characters.[42]

Feature film attempts[edit]

In 2002, writer Ben Hurst attempted to pitch an animated film in order to revive the series.[43] Hurst said that he proposed his idea of "a feature film to be the Third Season of SatAM" to a Sega executive, who was interested in the project, and that he later received a call from Ken Penders, head writer of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series by Archie Comics, who had been alerted about the movie. He stated: "I generously offered to include him in the effort and told him my strategy. Get Sega to become invested in the idea by hiring us to interview their creative game designers, execs, etc. and see if we could develop a story line that would fulfill the third season - and simultaneously give them creative ideas to develop new games."[43] However, he stated that after calling Sega back, his contact's demeanor had completely changed, angrily stating that Sega is paid to develop Sonic projects, rather than paying others to do so. Hurst theorized that, "Penders had related my strategy to them in a less-than-flattering way ... Then [Penders] dropped hints that he would be the writer for a big Sonic Feature Film."[43] Penders pitched Sega his own concept for a movie, titled Sonic Armageddon.[44] He created four concept arts and a homemade pitch video, but the project never saw fruition due to what Penders described as "massive corporate upheaval."[45]


Sonic the Hedgehog ranked #9 for all of Saturday Morning with a 5.2 rating, an estimated 4.8 million viewers during its second season.[46]

Patrick Lee of The A.V. Club gave it a positive review, saying that "the show pushed its cartoon animal characters to the most dramatic places they could go without venturing into self-parody. Over the course of the series, the characters dealt with loss, romance, and death [...] The entire series successfully pulled off that sort of balancing act, and even 20 years later, it’s still a solid Saturday morning cartoon".[47] Mark Bozon of IGN criticized the show as dated, considering it "so bad, it's good."[48] Writing for DVD Talk, Todd Douglass Jr. remarked that Sonic didn't stand the test of time. Overall, he considered it to be of low quality, although he found the stories "Ultra Sonic" and "Blast to the Past" to be "the crème of the crop."[49] Luke Owen of Flickering Myth felt Sonic aged better than is often supposed, praising its well-executed characterizations and treatment of war, although he considered Antoine to be "one of the worst characters committed to a cartoon series."[4]GamesRadar listed the show as one of "the worst things to happen to Sonic." It criticized its plot and characters as "unwanted".[50]Escapist journalist Bob Chipman credited the series with providing a viably menacing take on Doctor Robotnik, and an engaging narrative.[51] Bob Mackey of USgamer wrote that the cartoon's writing didn't live up to its intriguing premise. In particular, he argued that the Antoine character perpetrated negative French stereotypes.[52]

  39. ^"A few months after we launched the comic book, Sonic also made his debut as an animated TV character. In fact, it was perhaps the first time in animation history that two separate shows were simultaneously produced featuring the same character. “The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog” took a freewheeling slapstick approach to the characters and was seen across the nation in daily syndication. Meanwhile, the ABC-TV network checked in with a Saturday morning version simply called “Sonic the Hedgehog.” This series was filled with pure, slam-bang adventure and intrigue—and thoughtful characterization. In the beginning, Sega instructed our editorial team to reflect the art and story styles of the syndicated series, but it soon became apparent from fan reaction that the Saturday morning series was the one striking a nerve. The comic soon followed suit with a mix of the two styles, but a heavier emphasis on the dramatic." -Paul Castiglia, former editor of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic
  40. ^"I became enamored of the storylines in the series but was told we couldn’t tie-in directly to the stories in the series as DiC - just like SEGA - refused to cooperate with us in allowing us access to their material for the purpose of tying together the continuity of the book with the show, something I was very much interested in, as was Scott. It was only during the time when it was uncertain whether or not ABC would even renew the series for a third season that DiC provided us with scripts and other materials, probably out of hope that maybe the book would help attract more viewers if it were tied in more closely with the show. Mike and I were even invited to submit outlines with the idea we would be contributing to the third season as scriptwriters. … It was only when we learned the show was cancelled that I changed my mind about embracing the show as it was and instead decided to proceed as if the book were the third season and continuing beyond that. There were many reasons for this but the most important one boiled down to simply this: the book’s very survival. We never, ever felt the book had much of a shelf life beyond the existence of the games and animated series if we didn’t develop it into its own unique series." -Ken Penders, former writer of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic, The Times They Are A' Changing.
