Sonic Mania Adventures was one of the biggest surprises to come from Sega recently and the response to it was even more incredible. The series of shorts delighted fans and critics alike. Continue reading New Sonic Animated Series Confirmed!
I don’t know all the details on this one. But back in 1994, there was a Russian TV Quiz show about Sonic the Hedgehog, no idea if it was a special one off or a regular thing, but one thing is clear… it’s hilarious.
For starters, it begins with this very dodgy animation in which Sonic is seen escaping a road traffic accident, before hitching a ride on a helicopter whilst escaping gunfire from a futuristic fighter jet. The jet is able to shoot down the helicopter and Sonic somehow crashes out of a TV screen.
The first video then begins with this guy dressed up like a spaceman complete with a fake laser rifle who opens the show with all the emotion and enthusiasm of a 1970′s Dalek.
Throughout the show, a random Sonic cartoon animation appears in the corner of the screen and talks to the audience, sometimes showing his teeth and doing little gestures
The show also includes what appears to be Russian Sega MegaDrive adverts in which we see Ecto one driving through the streets of Russia to cure a sick boy by giving him a Sega MegaDrive
Theres prizes which are given out which include Sonic 2 themed watches and even a Sega MegaDrive 2.
They also consider the “Nissyo Iwai Corporation” to be Sonic’s creator, in English this means The Nissyo Potato Corporation.

One of the people behind Sonic Boom’s TV adaptation has posted a number of storyboards from the upcoming show on his website. Only the crazy thing… they’ve been on his website for over a year!
That’s right, for over a year several storyboards for Sonic Boom have been fully available to view. And what do they show? Not very much, don’t get excited, they don’t detail any huge spoilers, most of the sequences are from already released material.
The storyboard depicts a sequence between Sonic and Tails discovering Sticks’ house following a hoverboard race. Interestingly, the file name on the original website hints that this is from the 11th episode of the show, if this is indeed how Sticks is introduced, for the first 11 episodes she’ll likely be absent.
Thanks to Indigo Rush for the tip.
So we had the games.. but something was missing… ah here we go! Sega have decided to make public a TV Trailer for Sonic Boom the TV show. And it’s incredible. The trailer shows a number of episodes and some rather comical lines of dialogue, animation looks really high quality and episode variety seems varied.
In addition to this, an image appeared on Sega’s Facebook page which also seems to show a clip from the show including what looks like a new character.
