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]] [[CultClassic by its fans]]. 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 a spinoff game of the show, [[VaporWare but it was cancelled]].

Whoever this new character was, viewers never found out, as the series was abruptly cancelled. Writer Ben Hurst revealed his plans for a third season where the mysterious red eyes belonged to [[spoiler: Naugus]], a minor villain featured earlier in the series and a former partner of Dr. Robotnik. The intended story was adapted by the Archie comics, but because the comic strove to merge the other (often conflicting) versions of the franchise, it [[ContinuityDrift fell short]] of serving as a [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised pseudo-conclusion]] for Sonic [=SatAM=].
** Another thing that Hurst revealed is that Knuckles was supposed to appear at the end of that never to be made third season and was going to be more of a main character for an also never made fourth season.

* InsultBackfire: InNameOnly: The series' resemblance to the actual games it was based on is minimal. It includes Sonic, Tails (with none of his game characterization and DemotedToExtra), Dr. Robotnik (in a much more villainous role and looking [[YouDontLookLikeYou little like his game design]]), and a few other game elements like rings, an environmental message, and a few enemy designs. Other than that, however, nothing about the plot or characters resembles what little of a plot the games had at the time. Some of the {{Original Generation}} are ''loosely'' based on minor game characters but the resemblance is barely there.

* GenreSavvy: Robotnik, ''especially'' when compared to his other-continuity counterparts.
** In "Sonic and Sally"", Robotnik successfully creates a robot duplicate of Sally and puts her in a holding cell while hiding the real Sally elsewhere - his plan was to let Sonic rescue the fake, [[TheMole which would allow him to locate their hideout]]. Going even further, he deliberately keeps some guards around when sonic comes to the rescue, lest Sonic suspect [[ItsQuietTooQuiet something is up]]. In his own words, "we can't make it ''too'' easy".
** In "Sonic's Nightmare" Robotnik tries to shoot Sonic and the gang with a missile launcher from his [[InvisibilityCloak cloaked stealthpod]] after his main ship crashed. If it wasn't so damaged from [[spoiler:Sonic weaponizing an oil derrick against the ship, [[TotalPartyKill he could've won right then]]]].
** In "Sonic Conversion", Sonic attempts to [[ISurrenderSuckers "surrender"]]; Robotnik instantly smells a rat and immediately orders him into the roboticizer.
** In "Cry of the Wolf", Robotnik is able to spot the wolf pack's tendency to disguise the entrances to their hideouts [[HyperAwareness within seconds of getting a video feed of the area]].
** In "Spyhog", Robotnik immediately realized that Sonic's presence was just to distract his troops so that the other Freedom Fighters could sabotage the fuel convoy they had been guarding.



* StupidEvil: Robotnik. While much more GenreSavvy in the first season, [[{{Flanderization}} later on]], his sadistic tendencies seem to get in the way with many of his plans.

** [[MascotWithAttitude Sonic's attitude]] was exaggerated much more than in any other adaptation to the point of parody.
** The first season famously exaggerated Robotnik's evilness and ruthlessness much more than any other adaptation. Then the second season did a 360 and exaggerated his other bumbliness and comical traits to the point of giving the goofiest incarnations of the character a run for their money.
** Tails' role as Sonic's less experienced young sidekick was exaggerated to the point he became a DistressedDude who couldn't fight and had to [[DemotedToExtra stay home all the time]], even when the more inept Antoine was allowed to accompany the Freedom Fighters on missions.
