Synopsis:

 


 
Segaís answer to Nintendoís Mario Bros. was the speedy ball of energy known as Sonic The Hedgehog. The spiky-haired hedgehog caught on in the video game world and, like Mario, made the transition to animated series with ABCís Sonic The Hedgehog and the syndicated The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog.

ABCís version was more of an adventure story than the comedy-oriented syndicated Adventures. A group of freedom fighters strove to liberate their beloved planet Mobius from the wrath of the evil Dr. Robotnik ("Robuttnik" to Sonic) who had wrested control of the world from its rightful king, and turned the once paradise-like planet into a pollution-infested world filled with endless numbers of swatbots and hover crafts. With the Roboticizer, Robotnik was able to turn anyone into a mindless, robotic slave to carry out his evil intentions.

Robotnik had turned most of the planet's inhabitants into his slaves, but was unsuccessful in capturing a band of freedom fighters living in Knothole Village, one of the last places that hadn't been destroyed due to its hidden location. Sonic and his fox sidekick Tails tried to help Princess Sally find her father and restore him to the throne. The speedy hedgehog still made the occasional wisecrack, but the plot focused on the quest. As in the video game, when Sonic built up enough speed, he could roll into battle with his buzzsaw-like turbo roll, bowling over his enemies.

Jaleel White (TVís Urkel) provided the voice of Sonic in both series, which debuted within a week of each other in the fall of 1993. The ABC series ran only two seasons, but Sonic and Tails continued their streak of popular video games on Sega's Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast systems long after the show left the air.
