The series fell victim to the demise of many Saturday Morning Cartoons, being cancelled after two seasons with a CliffHanger ending, on a total of 26 episodes. Even when it was originally aired on ABC, it was pre-empted in many markets. Some viewers didn't see it until it was re-aired on Creator/{{USA Network}}. Despite being an [[VideoGameMoviesSuck adaptation of a videogame]], the [[AvertedTrope series is still highly regarded by its fans and is critically acclaimed]]. However, it's nature as an InNameOnly adaptation has caused a great deal of friction within the notoriously [[BrokenBase broken]] wider ''Sonic'' fanbase over how much of its style (if any) should be adopted by modern ''Sonic'' works. Sega had planned to make [[VideoGame/SonicSatAM a SpinOff game]] of the show, [[VaporWare but it was cancelled]].

However, it's also one of the biggest BaseBreaker works in the franchise. Its nature as an InNameOnly adaptation has caused a great deal of friction within the notoriously [[BrokenBase broken]] wider ''Sonic'' fanbase over how much of its style (if any) should be adopted by modern ''Sonic'' works. ''VideoGame/SonicSpinball'' is based on the show's early concepts. Sega had also planned to make [[VideoGame/SonicSatAM a SpinOff game]] of the show, [[VaporWare but it was cancelled]].



In addition to the aforementioned ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog'', this show also should not be confused with the other [[WesternAnimation western animated]] series ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', or the [[AsianAnimation asian animated]] ''Anime/SonicX'', and ''Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie'', or the upcoming [[Film/SonicTheHedgehog2018 film adaptation based off the character]].

* MaliciousMisnaming: Sonic almost always refers to Robotnik as "Robuttnik." This carries over to ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog,'' ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' and the Sonic comics based off the [=SatAM=] show.

** Rotor is purple rather than blue. Franchise/ArchieComics would keep Rotor purple for their adaptation.

** Rotor is purple rather than blue. has a different, goofier looking design. Franchise/ArchieComics would keep Rotor purple that design for their adaptation.


Added DiffLines:

** Another episode had Sonic using [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything suggestive dialogue]] while leading them around Robotropolis:
-->'''Sonic:''' (to Sally and Bunnie): Come on! It's okay ladies, I'll show you the pipes!

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Inverted. Girly-girl Bunnie is the more [[CuteBruiser badass of the two]], while tomboy Sally is the [[TheLeader leader]] and often a DistressedDamsel.
** Played with more in the later episodes, where Sally became less [[TooCleverByHalf egotistical]], while Bunnie's ActionGirl traits [[FauxActionGirl disappeared]].

* VillainDecay: Robotnik becomes ''mildly'' more buffoonish in the second season. (After all, being [[StupidEvil unreservedly sadistic has it's downsides]].) He's still fairly chilling compared to most renditions of the doctor however.

* AdaptationalBadass: Dr. Robotnik. In the games, Robotnik is generally portrayed as clownish and whimsical, and largely incapable of his goal of world conquest, to the point of being a borderline IneffectualSympatheticVillain.[[note]][[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore Despite the West's best attempts to harden him up]][[/note]] In this series, however, he is a sadistic [[EvilOverlord overlord]] of Mobius who is, for the most part, treated [[KnightOfCerebus very]] [[TheSociopath seriously]]. In the first two games produced, ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD Sonic CD]]'', Robotnik was only whimsical [[BewareTheSillyOnes until he started conquering the world]], as seen in the first game's final level and in the [[BadFuture bad endings]] of ''Sonic CD''. In those games, he behaves [[{{Irony}} very much like he does in the cartoon]], almost making this a DownplayedTrope.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Sonic and Tails, as the show's original characters doesn't really match the character design style of the games. Most notable is everyone else's lack of WhiteGloves.

* AscendedFridgeHorror: The concept of UnwillingRoboticisation is this. In the early Sonic games, Robotnik operated by trapping cute animals in [[ManInTheMachine colorful robot shells]] that [[LivingBattery use their bodies for power]]. The games give no explicit explanation as to why the animals trapped inside Robotnik's robots obeyed his commands instead of turning their new MiniMecha on him. This cartoon [[PragmaticAdaptation took that concept]] and [[NightmareFuel ran with it]]. As it turns out, the Roboticiser machine [[PainfulTransformation very painfully]] [[BodyHorror transforms the unfortunate victim's entire body into metal]], and limits their free will (essentially making every command a CompellingVoice) so they [[PeoplePuppets have no choice but to obey Robotnik's commands without question.]] (they are explicitly [[SubvertedTrope NOT]] brainwashed) The end result is a person who is still fully able to think for themselves, [[AndIMustScream but cannot do anything at all unless they are told]].
