Sonic Boom announced!
A new Sonic cartoon is on the way
Published on 18/10/2013

Up until the DS era, I had never owned a Sonic game, but he has always been one of my favourite characters. The reason? The cartoons. I remember watching Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground as I was growing up, and loving everything about that. I’ve recently revisited both, and they’re still brilliant (in that 90s cartoon way).

So I am very excited about news of a brand new Sonic cartoon. I enjoyed Sonic X immensely, especially its treatment of the game storylines, so I’m hoping for something similar to that. A funny, colourful and most of all exciting cartoon is exactly what the franchise needs to get its name out there again, and as long as Sonic Boom ticks all those boxes, I’m sure it will be a fan favourite.

The rivalry between Mario and Sonic is arguably the biggest rivarly ever in gaming, with schools across the nation split between the two mascots. In the 90s, things got so intense that SEGA and Nintendo went head-to-head on TV, with cartoons of both franchises taking big Saturday morning slots. While Nintendo have since bowed out of this area, SEGA are currently prepping a new show, Sonic Boom. With this new cartoon on the horizon, I take a look at the history of Sonic on TV.
