About the Show Edit
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog was created by DIC Entertainment, which produced a total of 65 episodes for its first season, and was syndicated by Bohbot Entertainment, now BKN International (in the original run, every episode began and ended with the "Bohbot Entertainment Presents" logo).
Later DiC ceased production on this comical version to spend more time on its darker interpretation, dubbed just Sonic the Hedgehog (commonly known as SatAM by fans), a series launched on ABC's Saturday morning line-up. It also airs on Toon Disney in 1998-2003.
After the original airing Edit
Another episode was said to be produced, but was never shown. Along with two other episodes that were in the works. DiC then created one more episode in the winter of 1996, "Sonic Christmas Blast", which has features from the other Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon such as Princess Sally Acorn in a non-speaking cameo. It also has Sonic, Sally and Tails visiting Robotropolis, which has a human population and a name pronounced with two "T"s. In this episode, Robotnik replaces Santa with a robot duplicate and demands that everybody gives him Christmas presents instead of getting some from Santa. Sonic, Sally, Tails and Santa team up to save the holiday. The letters page of issue #41 of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book promotes the special as "An X-Tremely Sonic Christmas" It was going to be named "An X-tremely Sonic Christmas", later "Sonic X-treme" was canned, in which turn, the episode had to be renamed.
Production and basic plot Edit
Pierre De Celles, an animator who worked on Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, described the show as "fun and humorous."
The central protagonists are Sonic the Hedgehog, Princess Sally Acorn and Miles "Tails" Prower, while the main antagonists include Robotnik and his two hench-bots Scratch and Grounder (with a third robot, Coconuts, appearing on occasion).
There are many occasional minor characters and robots too, including Robotnik's dominating mother. The city has more non-human creatures, like anthropomorphic animals and robots than other projects. The planet, Mobius is more of a zany, colorful cartoon world in this version.Each episode featured the famous "Sonic Sez" segments where Sonic gave viewers advice on different topics, ranging from staying in school, not running away from home and not using guns to smoking, alcohol abuse, false advertising, sexual harassment, and even the dangers of riding in clothes dryers. Today, the segments, along with the entire show are often used in internet memes.
In the United Kingdom, the series was screened on Channel 4 on Sunday mornings which had the "Sonic Says" segments edited out, possibly because of either time constraints or they were more aimed at American audiences and that many of the subjects were considered too controversial or hard to understand for UK audiences. They were also edited out on the UK VHS releases of the series. However, the segments were intact on the TCC and POP! airings, as well as the DVD boxset. In Australia, the show was aired on Agro's Cartoon Connection on weekday mornings and on Cheez TV on Saturday mornings. Unlike in the UK, all "Sonic Says" segments were left intact.
De Celles said in an interview that the staff of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog did not possess an awareness of nor a sense of competition against the Saturday series, which he describes as "serious and heavy." De Celles said that the approaches to the cartoons differed and he described the staff as too busy to pay attention to the other series.
