  • The Best AOSTH episode i've ever seen

    I've seen many Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog episodes, but this one takes the cake. I thought it was hilarious when Grounder became a genius and made Scratch his servant. It was also funny when Grounder had caught Sonic. Plus, it was very funny when Robotnik almost became a genius but Sonic quickly replaced the genuis chip with the stupidity chip. So, overall, a very good episode of AOSTH.

    10/10 A+ A Hilarious episode of Aosth, and a great show to top it off. So, if you wanna watch a great episode of a great show from the 90's, watch this episode. See You Next Time!moreless
