* DubNameChange: The official English dub renames Dr. Eggman to Dr. Robotnik for one of the last few times (as it was released in 1999). To go along with it, Eggmanland was renamed Robotropolis (as a ShoutOut to the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM saturday morning cartoon]]) and Black Eggman was renamed Metal Robotnik. In addition, Seira was renamed Sara; hers and Eggman's names are still displayed clearly in the fighting game gag, however. The official subtitles included in the DVD release go with the Japanese terminology and retranslate the script more accurately to boot. Cue SubbingVersusDubbing.

An hour-long anime {{OVA}} starring [[SonicTheHedgehog everybody's favorite]] [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative blue hedgehog]]. It was originally released in Japan in 1996 (initially as the two half-hour VHS tapes ''Journey to Eggmanland'' and ''Sonic vs. Metal Sonic''); the English dub by ADV was released on September 7, 1999, a few two days before ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' internationally hit the shelves.



** The OVA has it's tone, music and art style rooted directly in the original Genesis titles (''VideoGame/SonicCD'' in particular), but the explanation for the urban environments found in those games ([[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic Earth]] populated with anthropomorphic mutants who live in a sky kingdom ruled by...[[LittleBitBeastly cat people]], we guess) is ''completely'' different from anything else found in the series. Some exclusive characters pop up here and there, and there is no mention of the Chaos Emeralds anywhere.
** ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' did away with all ambiguity by calling it "Earth" and showing Sonic traveling from city to city, [[LightNovel/KinosJourney Kino]]-style, and interacting with humans. Would that the OVA thought up such a mundane solution!

* AccidentalPervert: Sonic can apparently [[PsychicLink see through Metal Sonic's eyes]] due to Metal being a copy of Sonic; this explains why Sonic was blushing when Metal [[PantyShot got a good look up Sera's skirt]]. The [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar radar also missed]] Tails grabbing hold of Sera after being scared and one of his hands mistakenly [[ThanksForTheMammary grabbing onto one of her breasts]]. Knuckles reads him the riot act.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Much of the more mature humor of the [=OVAs=] was kept in the Western movie release, including Metal Sonic catching a glimpse of Sera's underwear and getting kicked in the head repeatedly for it, Sonic falling on his groin and reacting accordingly, Tails accidentally copping a feel, or Sonic FlippingTheBird at Metal Robotnik. Also if you look closely during Eggman's fantasy of him having many offspring, Sara can be seen breastfeeding one of them, and another one is ''peeing on him!'' Said movie was marketed for kids.

''Sonic the Hedgehog'' is widely regarded as that rarest of rarities: [[VideogameMoviesSuck a video game movie that doesn't suck]]. The voice acting in the English dub is debatable, and it holds only a superficial resemblance to the events of the games, and yet the plot, art, and characterization still do an excellent job of capturing the ''spirit'' of the classic games. In any case, at time of release, the ''Sonic'' series had far less canon to take into account.

ADV Films released two different versions of the movie on DVD, although they are both the same dub: the original 1999 version which edited out/censored several bits of the movie, and a 2004 version which is completely uncut.
