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. As they both aired during the same time era, people looked to this show for slapstick comedy, while SatAM was also there for people who desired a bit more focus on adventures. That show was based on Archie's Sonic-based comic strips, while this show was entirely accurate at the time.

Robotnik and his idiots escape from the lions and head for ancient Mobegypt, when they can find the Emerald of Immortality. Robotnik, of course, knows that Sonic will try to stop him. But Robotnik has apparently got a surprise plan here - he tries to make sure Sonic is never born by preventing the Blue Blur's Egyptian ancestors, Masonic and Penelope, from meeting. Sonic and Tails show up, this time having used Caninestein's ""Time-Warp Boogie Board"" (the boots were hurting Sonic's feet), and manage to save Masonic from being kept under wraps. The kicker, though, is that Sonic winds up preventing his ancestors' meeting and is erased from existence. Instead of deciding to change the show's name to The Adventures of Tails the Kitsune, Tails fixes the paradox and gets Masonic and Penelope to meet, and Sonic reappears as if on cue. Unfortunately, Robotnik has now made himself pharaoh and forces Sonic, Tails, Masonic, and Penelope to build pyramids for him. When Robotnik figures that the Emer
