* LoveItOrHateIt: You'll either think the show is a wonderfully funny wacky and creative ''Sonic'' series, or an incomprehensible pile of nonsense.

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: In order to promote the show, Sega edited the Genesis and Game Gear title ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' with ''AOSTH'' cosmetics, relabeling it ''VideoGame/DoctorRobotniksMeanBeanMachine''. Despite these edits, and the odd omission of Sonic himself (instead of a playable character, opponents talk to the screen during cutscenes) the game is rather well received and considered a retro classic. ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogSpinball'' also included briefer elements of the show (along with WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM) as easter eggs.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/CathyWeseluck has a voice credit in this show under "Additional Voices".
* RootingForTheEmpire: Most fans seem to like the villains (Robotnik, Scratch, and Grounder) better than the heroes. So much so, [[SpotlightStealingSquad these same fans will often remark that the show should really be called]] ''[[SpotlightStealingSquad The Adventures of Dr. Robotnik]]''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The show had some decent one shot characters. Perhaps most blatantly were Robotnik's earlier bots who, despite being utilised and even given names and personalities in ''Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine'', made only cameos in the pilot and one or two more episodes if very lucky. The show also adapted Princess Sally for a voiceless cameo in the ChristmasSpecial.
* ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: This show is best summed up as ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' meets ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' with some ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' sprinkles and a heapin' helping of [[MaxAndDaveFleischer Max Fleischer surreality.]]

** The bounty hunters from "Sonic Search and Smash Squad", largely due to their reappearance in ''Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine'', a rather extreme example of the trope since outside the game, most of the characters only appear for all of a couple of seconds in the show itself.
** And, of course, the [[FatBastard good]] [[LargeHam doctor]] himself, [[MemeticBadass Robotnik]], who´s far more popular than the show itself.

* AdaptationDisplacement: While the show hasn't eclipsed the Sonic games themselves, people are much more familiar with Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts here to the point that some think they were created exclusively for the show, even though they're actually all based off enemies from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''.

** In another, Sonic and Tails are surrounded by enemies, so Tails suggests calling 911. Sonic shoots down this idea, saying that 911 is for real emergencies. In other words, being attacked by people who wish to kill or seriously harm you is not an emergency.
*** Although in a later episode they do correct this.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Robotnik, lots of people actually ''want'' him to beat Sonic. His MemeticMutation status certainly helps. Plus his status as "The world's sexiest fatman"

** The episode where Robotnik imprisons a cartoonist for making fun of him is less funny to watch after the Charlie Hebdo attack.
** "Zoobotnik" when taking into consideration the "Sonic Says" segment about sexual harassment. Catella the intergalactic huntress falls madly in love with Robotnik because of how evil he is. Robotnik doesn't feel the same way, but he's too scared to say anything because Catella won't keep her hands off him and is repeatedly manhandling him. In fact, her treatment of him could be considered, barely mind you, g-rated dry humping.

* MoralEventHorizon: Although he is cartoonishly goofy, many, if not most of Robotniks plans involved at best enslavement for life or at worst mass murder of civilians. Like in ''Sonic gets thrashed'' where his entire scheme revolved around killing his own robotic creations and enslaving many Mobian cizitens.
