Last night I randomly thought of watching Sonic the Hedgehog the Saturday Morning that came on ABC back in 1993-1995. It was a spin-off of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog that came on weekday mornings on UPN (now CW but was called WDCA back then) and WNUV 54 Baltimore. That particularly series lasted from 1993-1994. However, they did come out with the Sonic Christmas Blast in 1996. At any rate, what I did not know is that they actually tried pitching a game based off the Saturday Morning series. As you know the Archie Comics made a whole comic book series based off the SAT-AM series which included Knuckles, Super Sonic, and the Chaos Emeralds.
The interesting thing is that although there is only a demo up of what was called “Sonic-16″, Sally was included in Sonic Spinball as a quick cameo. Additionally, the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog was featured in Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine with Grounder and Scratch as bosses. I find it kind of funny and interesting how I’m finding out all of this information like 18-19 years later. Hey, better late than never, right? If this game got worked on more and they could actually pitch it, I think it would have made an excellent title. I mean, the whole climbing, dodging, and elusive aspect of the demo, it’s something you never see in Sonic Games these days. It was definitely ahead of it it’s time. I think you should check it for yourself! Enjoy! Oh yeah, as a little treat, I will post up an episode of the old Sonic the Hedgehog SAT-AM. Peace!
