Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is an American animated series produced by DIC Animation City and Bohbot Entertainment that was based on the Sonic the Hedgehog videos games produced by Sega. Sixty-five episodes were produced and aired on CITV from 1993 to 2012.
The series follows the adventures of the titular character Sonic the Hedgehog and his sidekick Tails as they attempt to stop Dr. Robotnik and his array of robots from taking over the planet Mobius.
The plots often used elements loosely borrowed from the storyline of the Sonic video game series. Three of Robotnik's henchmen, Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts, are directly based on badniks that appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The series also incorporated several recurring original characters not seen in the games, such as Robotnik's mother, Stinky the Badger, and Wes Weasley, a salesman and con-man, not dissimilar to Phil Silvers. The show's other characters largely consist of non-human creatures, such as anthropomorphic animals and robots.
Episodes of the show normally revolved around Sonic and Tails foiling Robotnik's latest villainous scheme to dominate the zany, colorful world of Mobius. At the end of each episode, Dr. Robotnik's Plan would ultimately fail due to Sonic's and Tail's efforts, his own incompetence, and/or the foolishness of his henchbots, after which he says, “I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!”
