* EditedForSyndication: When the series reaired on the USA Network, many scenes were cut for commercial time.

* [[FakeNationality Fake Frenchman]]: Antoine, as voiced by Creator/RobPaulsen. His character is a collection of insulting French stereotypes: mispronouncing so many words of English, misspeaking famous quotes, always scared, especially clumsy, constantly getting captured, obsessing with fine cooking and cleanliness, envying the hero and quick to surrender.
* IAmNotShazam: Some of the fans call the sorcerer "Ixis Naugus" (his name from the comics) when, technically, in the show he is simply "Naugus".

** Another strange example is Sally. Her last name (Acorn) is never mentioned in the show proper, although most fans have adopted it from other works (her last name is provided in the show's Bible, as well as featured in the comics and as part of the video game supporting lore).
* NamesTheSame: Sonic is really bad for this. The show shares its official name with no fewer than ''five'' other products: the original video game, the Archie comics, the 2006 video game, a children's novella loosely based on the [=SatAM=] universe, and the franchise as a whole. Oh, and the main character of course. Most fans use the monicker "[=SatAM=]" to distinguish it as a result.

** Even when voicing villains Creator/JimCummings tends to be known for his comedic roles. Robotnik is... decidedly ''not'' [[NightmareFuel comedic]]. His whimsical acting can't help seep through odd times however (especially in Season Two).
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Despite pulling in solid ratings against ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' and being connected to a mega-popular video game series, the show got cancelled for two reasons: one, Creator/{{Disney}} had just bought ABC and decided to clean house concerning their Saturday lineup (which would lead to OneSaturdayMorning emerging a couple years later), and many of ABC's stations tended to delay the lineup or preempt it entirely to air local news. As a result, some people didn't see the show until Creator/USANetwork put it on as part of their ''Action Extreme Team'' block.

** According to the series bible, Nate Morgan from the Archie comics was originally supposed to appear in the show. Also, Snivley's original name was Quizley, and he was Robotnik's second cousin twice removed on his mother's side rather than his nephew. The bible also mentions more sinister renditions of badniks from the games such as Crabmeat and Caterkiller. While a redesigned Buzz Bomber appeared in the pilot, the others made no appearance, though like Nate Morgan made appearances in the early comics.

** Ben Hurst at one point discussed with a SEGA executive about making [[TheMovie a movie]] that would have used the ideas in the unmade third season in 2000, and the executive was interested in talking a bit more about it (all this was happening years after MGM dropped the ''Sonic'' movie license and left their treatment unproduced). Ken Penders (infamous among the fandom for a lawsuit that [[ExiledFromContinuity robbed]] the Archie Comics of quite a few characters), who had heard about it, was offered to help, and he went to represent Ben Hurst. The project was rejected afterward. After being confronted about it, Ken's response was [[NeverMyFault "Ben doesn't know how movies are made in Hollywood."]] With Sony getting the ''Sonic'' film rights in 2014, it's unlikely this will ever be restarted again.
* WordOfGod: The pair of [[RedEyesTakeWarning sinister red eyes]] glaring at the viewer when the show ''ended'' belong to [[spoiler:Naugus]].
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Very much averted. Ben Hurst had already had the third and fourth season (and possibly more) planned out and ready to go by the time the show was CutShort.

Added DiffLines:

* StockSoundEffects: In one episode, the [=SWATBots=] have to tie down a large, dinosaur-like tank that's gone crazy. They accomplish this with tether-launchers which make the same sound as [[BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman's grapple-gun]].

* CreatorsPest: WordOfGod has it that the reason the second season had Rotor DemotedToExtra was due to creator and producer Len Janson's unexplained dislike of the character.

* CreatorsFavorite: Writers of both ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatam'' and the ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comics have admitted that Princess Sally Acorn is their favorite character. Though she has more than a few detractors that could lean her into CreatorsPet territory, she has almost as devout a number of fans, making her a BaseBreaker at worst.
