Last Updated: May 14, 2020
Based on a popular Sega game series, The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog follows the adventures of Sonic and his buddy Miles "Tails" Prower. Sonic is the fast-movin', impatient hedgehog. Tails is his curious little friend who is always eager to learn and tag along with his pal during quests. Dr. Ivo Robotnik (now known as Dr. Eggman), an evil mad scientist, is constantly scheming to find a way to destroy the blue blur. But it never works, because Sonic is always one step ahead of him! After this show was introduced, Sonic the Hedgehog (also known as SatAM) came along.

That show was based on Archie's Sonic-based comic strips, while this show was entirely accurate at the time.
