** In season 1 [[WesternAnimation/ReBoot Hack and Slash]] were played by Phil Hayes and Gary Chalk just like Scratch and Grounder. Both were duos of inept villainous robot henchmen.

** 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 (and, of course, the completely unnecessary bikini pic from "Hero of the Year.")

** In the unaired pilot, Dr. Robotnik was voiced by Creator/JimCummings, while Tails' voice actor was uncredited. In the series proper, Robotnik was voiced by Long John Baldry, while Tails was voiced by Christopher Stephen Welch.

* 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 [=YouTube=] for a couple of years before the uncut episode was finally given a proper release on DVD, thanks to Creator/ShoutFactory.

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

* TalkingToHimself: Katella and Mama Robotnik are both voiced by Kathleen Barr. When she was playing Mama Robotnik in "Zoobotnik" she made her voice lower and gruffer than she had sounded previously.

** 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 Website/YouTube. *** The work print also has some noticeable differences from the final product. Robotnik and Scratch are voiced by Jim Cummings, a narrator plays throughout the action and there is slightly more authenticity to the games themselves with zones and badniks seen in far more recognizable form.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: When the aforementioned "Mass Transit Trouble" episode was picked up for broadcast by Creator/ToonDisney, they removed a questionable scene where Sonic removes a bomb from the bottom of a chair. This is likely because Toon Disney didn't feel like repeating the backlash the episode caused after it was consequently pulled in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing.

* FakeAmerican: Jaleel White was the only American voice actor. Everyone else in the cast was based in Vancouver. However, this is averted with Robotnik, since Long John Baldry makes [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent absolutely zero attempt to mask his native British accent]].
