The BEST Episodes of The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog
Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!
Last Updated: Jul 26, 2019
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. A few years after these two cartoons, DIC's final Sonic show - Sonic Underground - came to life. Altogether, Sonic and DIC stayed toge

Robotnik places all four Emeralds on his neck and grows larger and becomes Surpreme High Robotnik, and sends Sonic and Tails to the Big Bang.

#4 - Hero of the Year
Season 4 - Episode 3
Dr. Robotnik's up to his old tricks as he's convinced a superhero that Sonic is the enemy! (Sound familiar? Check ""Over The Hill Hero""!) Capturing Sonic under the impression that he could get his own show leaves Tails' and a bunch of other Mobians' plans to give Sonic a surprise banquet and a Hero of the Year award a little askew . . . . Sonic gets captured along with his friends, is slammed inside a giant disco ball and heaved into a lake to drown to death! The trick: If any of his friends come even close to the ball, it'd start filling with water, if Sonic tried to escape he'd drown, and if he did nothing he'd run out of air! And to make matters worse, he places the other Mobians in a cage and starts to sink the ship they're on!

The crash scatters the chicken's brains as he now believes he's Edgar Eagle, earning a turkey fangirl in the process! As for Sonic, the hedgehog has troubles of his own as Robotnik is trying to make a robot factory out of his friend Farmer Brown's farm. Luckily for the hero, Scratch is willing to help as long as he thinks he's Edgar Eagle. Too bad his strange act of good won't last long...

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
