A pilot film for The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog was made that never aired on television. Some scenes of it ended up the series included the attempted crushing of Sonic by Robotnik that was played at the end of every episode during the credits. See more »
During the credits, we see a Wile E. Coyote-like segment where Dr. Robotnik is setting a trap where a large mechanical press is supposed to smash Sonic. But when Robotnik pushes the remote control button, the trap doesn't do anything. He walks under the press to see what happened, and Sonic takes the controller, presses the button and smashes Robotnik. The press rises, and Sonic tosses the remote control under the press before running off. A flattened Robotnik gently falls from the press onto the controller and ends up smashed again. See more »
I liked watching this syndicated version of Sonic the Hedgehog (despite the fact that it was produced by DIC). This cartoony version was more faithful to the video games than the serious action version that aired on ABC. That version was boring, and had little if anything to do with the classic video games.
Some co-stars included Tails, Robotnik, Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts. A lot of the situations these guys got into were very funny. I laughed at the moments when Sonic addressed Robotnik as RoBUTTnik. I also liked some of the endings, when Sonic and Tails defeated Robotnik, he often screamed, "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!" That was very funny.
Based from the Sonic games I'm familiar with, this series seems like an adaption from Sonic 2, which even has the characters that existed the time the game was presented. The show developers even went as far as getting a partial soundtrack similar to Sonic 2 just for this show.
As I pointed out before, this was produced by DIC, which is notorious for producing third-world TV shows based from existing products from video games, toys, and comic books (and also Japanese imports). This syndicated version of Sonic is one of the very few good cartoons from DIC, and the best of all Sonic TV shows made.
