DiC Entertainment, the animation company responsible for the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons in the 1990s, has recently broken free from former parent company Disney. And now that it is an independent once more, it plans to re-release a number of Sonic shows on DVD in time for the company’s tenth anniversary.
In an article on Kidscreen, DiC detailed its business plans for the rest of the year, including a heavier retail push and a leaning on home entertainment releases. Key to the latter will be cartoons such as Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM and Sonic Underground, which originally aired from 1993 – 1999.
A quote from the article:
Additionally, in spring, the company will bow with episodic videos of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega’s video game character that’s celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. In honor of the occasion, DIC will tie in promotionally with Sega through in-pack and on-pack offers on its Sonic videos and DVDs.
