Nearly 300 animators spent 17 months re-making episode 5 of Sonic X frame-by-frame, employing a variety of styles. Check it out below:

  1. Poor Chris, never thought he was out of place in the show, but personally I always wondered how it would’ve gone if they had picked a girl instead, think Helen, not wealthy or lonely just helping out the characters by giving them a place to stay.
    Episode 26 is still one of my favorites and just wouldn’t be the same without Chris.

    I imagine people would have gotten their pitchforks though, because a female human interacting with Sonic is apparently too much to handle.

  2. i thought it was really funny when knuckles flailed his fists whilst going bonkers with a wide mouthed crazy look over and over smashing trees and chasing sonic.
