* AdoredByTheNetwork: This was one of the first programs to air on Creator/ToonDisney upon its 1998 launch. The channel aired the series every day for four straight years, and even dedicated a marathon of the entire series called the "Sonic Hog-A-Thon" for Groundhog Day 2001. This made it easy to record every single episode for those who were into the hobby of recording cartoons, and it may have [[VindicatedByCable played a role in keeping the series from going into obscurity]].

** There was a workprint of a pilot episode that was screened when the cartoon was being pitched to ABC. Unfortunately, the network hated it and instead preferred [=DiC's=] [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM second idea]] of a ''Sonic''-themed television series, ultimately leading to the pilot being scrapped. The workprint itself can be seen on [=YouTube=]. The work print also has some noticeable differences from the final product. Robotnik and Scratch are voiced by Jim Cummings (as mentioned above in TheOtherDarrin), a narrator (voiced by Creator/GaryOwens) speaks throughout the action and there is slightly more authenticity to the games themselves with zones and badniks seen in far more recognizable form.

* RetroactiveRecognition: During its run, the series ran a "Watch and Win Sweepstakes" contest. One of the two winners was a young boy named [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} Christian Weston Chandler]].

** Nearly every sound effect in every episode from the series derives from those used in Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons. Seriously, just try to find a sound effect in the series that ''isn't'' in a Hanna-Barbera cartoon.



** One of the "running" sound effects (used in numerous other cartoons) would later be used as one of the sound effects when landing on a spring in modern ''Sonic'' games.

** Coconuts' voice actor, Ian James Corlett, is also the voice of Mega Man in the Ruby-Spears cartoon. ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' didn't help either.

* BannedEpisode: The episode "Mass Transit Trouble" was stricken from the airwaves ''twice''. The first time was in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing because of the episode's references to terrorism. The second time was during Creator/ToonDisney[='=]s run, in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.[[note]]It should be noted that Toon Disney decided to {{Bowdlerize}} one scene where Sonic finds a bomb under a chair, so they knew that the episode had questionable material.[[/note]] The Toon Disney version of episode was circulating on Website/YouTube for a couple of years before the uncut episode was finally given a proper release on DVD, thanks to Creator/ShoutFactory.

** Dr. Robotnik was originally conceived as television's sexiest fat man. The animators weren't up to the challenge, but it didn't stop them from slipping in a lot of {{shirtless scene}}s and scenes that draw too much attention on Robotnik's rear end. This also includes the bikini pic from "Hero of the Year."

* FollowTheLeader:
** The abstract, Jackson Pollack-esque backgrounds? The thin, nonsensical plots? The loose, OffModel animation? Yeah, a lot of this show was, shall we say, ''inspired'' by ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Justified in that a number of ex-''Ren & Stimpy'' crew members actually ''worked'' on the show.
** [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes The classic animated shorts from Warner Bros.]] were also likely an inspiration. Compared to the games, this show portrays Sonic and Robotnik's rivalry more along the lines of [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner the Road Runner and Wile. E Coyote]]. It even features similar gags.
** ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' may have had some influence on this show, considering that the animation company TMS actually did work on all of those shows as well as ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog''.
