  • Aimed at more mature audiences, Sonic SatAM delivers a great story, memorable characters, and is arguably the best cartoon based on a game.

    Like many games out there, Sonic the Hedgehog is no stranger when it comes to having a TV show about him. Having 4 shows alone, Sonic is probably the best video game character to be made into a show, and his most powerful show is the dark and mature, Sonic SatAM. The show is based on the Archie comics it came from and centers around Sonic, Tails, Princess Sally, Bunnie Rabbot, and so many more as they fight against Dr. Robotnik and his nephew Snively to free the world. The story while sounding pretty linear actually is done in a way that will actually have you coming back for more. The plots are original and have plenty of twists to them as they go on. The animation is superb in this show, it flows nicely, and the set designs are creative. The show itself has a dark atmosphere to it and you actually feel the depression and apocalyptic feel to the world. The characters are just like their comic book adaptations and each one is given back story and you will actually come to know and love all the characters in the show. If there was one bad thing about this show, it had to be that it ended on a cliffhanger. Eventually though, they explained what happened after the series ended with another comic, but I honestly think that it was a ploy by Archie comics to make kids buy the comics to see what happened after the show. I think it's a cheap way to end the show on a cliffhanger and it should have ended better with no cliffhanger or loose ends. Despite that with its great storytelling ways, complex characters, and a more mature show for Sonic fans, Sonic SatAM is the best of the 4 Sonic shows and arguably the best video game to a show adaptation. Should you have a chance, look up episodes on Youtube and see it for yourself.
