I never heard of this cartoon until 2002. Unlike the syndicated Adventures of Sonic and the cult favorite SatAM Sonic the Hedgehog.
Sonic Underground is at a whole different level. Instead of Sonic being a standard hero, he's a prince accompanied by 2 of his Siblings, who he hasn't seen since the day they were infants. One is Manic(a green male hedgehog who was raised as a thief) and the other is Sonia(a free roaming female hedgehog). Their mother(The Queen) had to separated them because of Robotnik taking over Mobius(which is similar to what he did in the previous series).
So the Queen left each of her kids a music medallion which has the power of sound waves and music. When all 3 of the Hedgehog siblings combine them, they become one unbeatable rock and roll team. That can wipe out Robonik's forces of robots.
Throughout the series, the hedgehog trio travels around Mobius in their own van, and try to search for their own mother. As mentioned that when they're reunited again, they'll be able to overthrown Robotnik for good.
Despite it being the weakest of the DiC Entertainment Sonic cartoons. The series does have great animation, character designs, and interesting stories. The down side, it's a disappointment to most Sonic Fans. And it's no where close to being as excellent as the SatAM one.
Since it was made and adapted from Europe, the whole story, theme, and look does look very European. And pretty much something the British would come up with if they were given a task in creating their own Sonic the Hedgehog.
I only seen 9 out of 40 episodes for this series. A few of them are average, but there are some good episodes that are worth watching. Giving Sonic Underground credit in enjoyment.
Overrall not highly recommended for those who liked SatAM Sonic, as very few elements from that series exist in this one. And song haters will avoid it at all costs. To be on the safe side, borrow it or download it to see for your own opinion on it.
