So it’s no secret that Sonic has a whole cavalcade of friends built up across his history, and with most bearing a distinct and unique voice, you’d typically be able to recognize each one and discern who’s who just from the sound alone. However, if their voices were to switch around, like hearing the charming and sweet Cream the Rabbit talking in Big the Cat’s velvet tones, well… things can get weird really, really fast.
Stop the presses!
It’s only been a month since the animators and voice actors over at Sonic Paradox released the karma collector-themed Vector’s Knickers, and tonight, the crew has unveiled a brand new spinoff series to the popular Sonic Shorts Volumes collaborations. Sonic Seconds!

“Find the computer room!”
“To get through tight spaces, press the Circle button to slide!”
It’s been a long time coming, but if you’ve been itching for more Sonic Shorts Volumes, you’ve certainly come to the right place… if you’ve been expecting something much greener and scalier! Much like the Knuckles Briefs, the animation team at Sonic Paradox has come back together again to deliver more raucous laughs and satirical pokes at the Sonic franchise in a new specially themed shorts collection, this time shining the limelight on everyone’s favourite crocodile, muscle, and karma collector.

It’s been the lifelong dream of many Sonic fans to work at SEGA or with the Sonic brand in some official capacity, and in many ways, Tyson Hesse has achieved it.
Back when Archie Comics still published their Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Universe serials, Hesse was brought on board during the later years as one of many great artists behind each carefully crafted page. His beloved take on Classic Sonic soon led to him pencilling the unfortunately ill-fated Sonic: MEGA DRIVE comics, and later directing not only the animation for Sonic Mania‘s preorder trailer, but the official opening for the game as well.
However, there was a time before all of this, a simpler time, when a certain Boxer Hockey wove a masterpiece of a tale – a dramatic epic with running, giants, robots, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles, and finally…
…magical kitsunes and rock-hard fist-nipples.
For Mania Week’s Freak-Out Friday, we take another look back at Hesse’s legendary Sonic’s Adventure, as animated by Bocodamondo back in 2012. Enjoy!
