A look back at 'Sonic the Hedgehog' adaptions


'The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog' provokes more groans than guffaws

The first of the three animated adaptions of the speedy hedgehog to be produced by DIC, "The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" does not stand the test of time. The show tries to go for a "Looney Tunes" vibe with an emphasis on visual gags, but it lacks the discipline to pull it off. Both the supporting cast and villains grate on the nerves with obnoxious voices and the PSA segments at the end of every episode are particularly cringe-worthy. Recommended only as a punishment to your kids.
