The show ran for two seasons before it was canceled. The final episode, "The Doomsday Project", ended with a cliffhanger suggesting a new villain for season three.

Not Metal Sonic. Ixis Naugus."

Differences with AoStH

While Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is known for its bright colors and whimsical humor, Sonic the Hedgehog featured darker stories which constituted a departure from the tone of the Sonic games of the time. To distinguish between the two series, fans typically refer to this series as SatAM, because it was a Saturday morning cartoon, while Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog aired on weekdays in syndication in the United States. Saturday morning cartoon is the colloquial term for the animated television programming which was typically scheduled on Saturday mornings on the major American television networks from the 1960s to the 1990s. ... In broadcasting, syndication is the sale of the right to broadcast radio shows and television shows to multiple stations, without going through a broadcast network. ...


Similarities with Sonic X

Even though SatAM and Sonic X are both different in origin, the two shows share similarities. They both have exclusive characters and large portions of both have exclusive content not found in the games. Also, power rings, which were introduced in SatAM as an adaption of the rings in the games, are in Sonic X and they give Sonic an extra boost of speed and spindash abilities in both series. However, in SatAM they were big and produced in a river powered by a magic rock; in Sonic X, they were small enough to hold in a fist, and it is unknown where they come from because characters seem to just "have" them or taken them with them. Also, if you listen, you'd hear some music which is a slightly different version of the title intro music in SatAm which is played before the episode begins. This article is about Sonic X, an animated series. ...

Episode list

The following are episode summaries for the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. ...

Season 3

Though the series ended with Season 2, there were more episodes planned. According to writer Ben Hurst, the third season would have featured Snively briefly attempting to take over, but he quickly fails.


He would then accidentally release Naugus from the Void, who would take over as the main villain with Robotnik as his lackey (Naugus is also the person whose eyes were seen behind Snively at the end of Season 2). The King would also be freed from the Void and Snively, reduced to nothing, would later defect to the Freedom Fighters (which briefly occurred in the Sonic Archie comic).


Furthermore, more developments would have come along between the relationship of Sonic and Tails, coming a little closer to the game relationship it strayed so far away from. [5] It has also been said that Sally is romanced by someone other than Sonic. Also, Hurst mentions that Tails would discover some great power hidden inside him and that he would save the Freedom Fighters from a great disaster.


Pre–Sonic the Hedgehog

In 1993 an article in Sonic the Comic (the British comic officially licensed by Sega Of Europe), it announced two new television series starring Sonic the Hedgehog, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog. Within the four pages of plot synopsis and concept art, a group of screen shots that greatly differ from the rest appear without explanation.[1] These screen shots have circulated through the Internet contributing to the theory of a cartoon series aborted before production which has been dubbed "The Mystery cartoon" also "Pre-SatAM" by Sonic fans. Sonic the Comic, known to its many readers as STC, was a UK childrens comic published fortnightly by Fleetway Editions (the merged companies Fleetway and London Editions, which progressively became integrated with its parent company Egmont until it became known as Egmont Magazines) between 1993 and 2002. ...

One of these images, showing 'The Freedom Team' was later reused to promote the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog series, along with another, using similar art, presumably from the same timeframe. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is an American animated television series that was first broadcast in September 1993, and has been running in cartoon syndication ever since. ...


While there has not been any confirmation from DiC on the matter, it is from Internet speculations that these images were a prototype for Sonic the Hedgehog, due to similarities (Sally Acorn, The Robotocizer, Freedom Fighters) with the series and their appearance within an article announcing Sonic the Hedgehog. The DIC Incredible World logo used from the late 2001-present. ...


The supporting characters in the Pre-Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon are based on the small animals freed from enemies in the original Sonic the Hedgehog game - although wildly different in design, they all bear the same names as those attributed to the various video game animal characters listed in the UK book, Stay Sonic, which were also used in Sonic the Comic strips. Most notably, the image went on to inspire redesigns of Sonic the Comic supporting characters Johnny Lightfoot and Porker Lewis - while originally they were single the basic rabbit and pig video-game character designs, they were abruptly redesigned to be given humanoid proportions and the leather jackets the image depicted. Most notable in the image is the lack of Tails; it could be that the concept was drawn up before Tails' arrival in the franchise.[2] Sonic the Hedgehog ), trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog,[4] is a video game character and the hero of a video game series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, cartoons and books. ...

Cancelled video game

In a recent interview with Peter Morawiec, a former programmer for Sega Technical Institute and the famed creator of Comix Zone, he had developed a prototype game based off of the cartoon continuity, using a completely different engine than the traditional Sonic games. It would have been a second time that characters from the cartoon series would have shown up, and possibly the first video game appearances of both the cartoon version of Robotnik and Snively. The interview can be seen here.[6] Screenshot from the start of Comix Zone. ...
