!![[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM The TV Show]]
* AscendedFanon: The ''[=SatAM=]'' nickname made it onto the cover of the DVD boxset.
* CreatorsFavorite: Writers of both ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatam'' and ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' 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.
* EditedForSyndication: When the series reaired on the USA Network, many scenes were cut for commercial time.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The staff were pushed to create Dulcy so as the balance out the gender ratio of the Freedom Fighters. The four Antoine shorts were also a request of executives.
* [[FakeNationality Fake Frenchman]]: Antoine, as voiced by Rob Paulsen. 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, enving the hero and quick to surrender.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Jaleel White, a.k.a. [[FamilyMatters Steve Urkel]], voices Sonic.
** Also, KathSoucie as Sally and NICOLE, ChristineCavanaugh as Bunnie, RobPaulsen as Antoine, CharlieAdler as Snively, and JimCummings as Robotnik.
** In Mexico, Sally would later become [[DrawnTogether Clara]]. At least she's still a princess.
** As for Germany, Tails is [[StarWarsTheCloneWars Anakin Skywalker]] and [[TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius Sheen Estevez]].
** TimCurry gives us the voice of King Acorn.
* NamesTheSame
* TheOtherDarrin: Cam Brainard replaced Mark Ballou as Rotor in Season 2.
* PlayingAgainstType: Even when voicing villains Jim Cummings tends to be known for his comedic roles. Robotnik is... decidedly ''not'' [[NightmareFuel comedic]].
* TalkingToHerself: Kath Soucie as Sally and NICOLE.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The show's third season was completely laid out and prepared, and then ABC cancelled it.
** Knuckles would have appeared in the third season.
** Had [=SatAM=] not been cancelled, [[spoiler:Ixis Naugus]] would have taken over as BigBad of the series.
** 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.
** Some [[http://pencilhill.tumblr.com/post/89293050168/more-satam-prototype-designs-from-ebay-bunnie very early prototype designs]] were recently uncovered. Sally was a ''human'' at one stage, Bunnie was drawn like a {{Disney}} character and organic from the waist up (or [[http://pencilhill.tumblr.com/post/89451121603/more-proto-satam-stuff mechanical from the head down]], in another sketch), and Robotnik, as a likely result of having no visual references, was drawn as both a cyborg-pirate thing, and then a green demon overlord that looked kindof like [[TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]] if he was drawn by DonBluth.
* WordOfGod: The pair of [[RedEyesTakeWarning sinister red eyes]] glaring at the viewer when the show ''ended'' belong to [[spoiler:Ixis 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.
!![[VideoGame/SonicSatAM The Cancelled Game]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: This was one of many attempts at making a ''[=SatAM=]'' game revolving around stealth rather than speed. The closest these elements ever got to being included in a finished ''Sonic'' game was ''Sonic3DBlast'', which excised all of the ''SATAM'' elements and ended up being a ''VideoGame/{{Flicky}}'' {{revival}}, and ''SonicSpinball'', which relegates the ''SATAM'' cast to cameos in a mini game.
