The Simpsons References Sonic

Oh Sonic, I do! Woohoo!

The Simpsons, America’s longest running comedy, has spoofed and referenced everything from James Bond to Furbies. Even the red plumber himself, Mario, recieved a cameo appearance during a barrel throwing gag done in the vein of the classic Donkey Kong. So I ask you…WHERE is my Sonic the Hedgehog spoof? Surely Matt Groening and his cohorts are more then mere Nintendo fanboys?

Well, for the three of us who’ve been waiting for the Simpsons to do SOMETHING with Sonic, the wait is finally, sort of, over. In the latest episode, Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose make a brief appearance on a billboard, which says “Sonic the Hedgehog Says: Wait Until Marriage”, showing Sonic presenting Amy with a ring.

The episode, titled “That 90s Show”, told the story of how Homer created grundge music in the 90s.

By the way, for all you smartys with encyclopedic knowledge of the Simpsons, I am WELL AWARE of a green Sonic recolor appearing on the episode “Marge Be Not Proud”, and it DOESN’T count.

Edit: Ok, I suppose my terrible memory is catching up to me. So the hedgehog was blue. Therefore making it a full fledged appearance. I stand corrected.

  1. One thing I’ve always loved about the simpsons is that it is a show that is not afraid to push the envelope in an intellectual way.
