The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise was in a weird place in the early ’90s, with each of Sega’s regional branches having their own takes on the characters when it came to licensed media – that’s how we wound up with the Archie and Fleetway comic series, which diverged greatly from the original Japanese descriptions and designs.
Of course these depictions have their own beloved fans, and one of the most popular depictions of Sonic from this era came from DiC’s Sonic cartoons. While most of the love goes towards the Saturday morning show (now known as SatAM), Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog offered a more comedic take on the blue blur that still has its charms.
It’s the latter that was the inspiration for this latest video by animator FlippinDingDong, which recreates the final Robotnik scene from the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie in that style, complete with redubbed voice lines that better match the unique voice of original voice actor Long John Baldry.
