Funny / Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

Go To

  • Whenever Robotnik goes into Large Ham mode (which is pretty much all the time).
    • In fact, here's a list of all of Robotnik's glorious insults over the course of the show.
  • The end credits. So funny that they got a Shout-Out In Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog Comic.
  • Momma Robotnik PERIOD. She constantly abuses her son (Robotnik!) and is always escaping from a mental institution.
    • A mental institution known as "Mobius Home for Really Bizarre Mothers" no less.
  • In episode 38, we get this wonderful gem: (Robotnik has just completed his own robot wife) When Robotnik revealed her to Scratch and Grounder, Grounder commented that "She's got really big..." Scratch interrupts him saying "!" Getting Crap Past the Radar much?
  • The "Zoobotnik" episode takes the cake for the best (and cruelest) prank Sonic has ever played on Robotnik. He disguises himself as a justice of the peace, marries Robotnik to Katella, and invites Mama Robotnik to the wedding. Hilarity Ensues.
    • From the same episode: "This isn't my sport. How about some tiddilywinks?"
    • The episode "Zoobotnik" as a whole. It's just bonkers especially seeing Katella infatuated/physically assaulting Robotnik.
  • The episode "Robotnik's Pyramid Scheme" has one of these in Scratch trying to seduce Masonic (Sonic's ancestor). When dolling himself up, Grounder tells him to hurry up, prompting him to say, "Oh, don't rush me! I gotta look juuuust right so he'll be attracted to me!" He then falls into Masonic's arms and, after, picks Masonic up and Marshmallow Hells him with his boob-cones. The wonderful moment was sadly cut out of the Toon Disney broadcast.

  • Robotnik's Humiliation Conga near the end of "Sonic Gets Thrashed", which ends with the "I hate that hedgehog!" to end all "I hate that hedgehog!"'s - and the revelation that Sonic captured his tantrum and plan to enslave Mobius on tape.
  • At the beginning of "Black-Bot the Pirate", after Scratch accidentally uses Robotnik's time machine to go back to the first Thanksgiving, he comes back after apparently ending up in their turkey and complains "Stupid pilgrims! It's bad enough they tried to eat me for dinner, then they had the nerve to say I tasted lousy!"
    • In the same episode, when Sonic swipes the treasure chest Robotnik is looking for and replaces it with a decoy that turns him into a chicken when he opens it.
  • Scratch's reaction to a shredded truck tire in "Road Hog." One of the few times the show breaks its Never Say "Die" rule.
    Scratch: ...WE ARE DEAD!
    • This exchange a mite earlier in the same episode:
    Scratch: You will stop in two seconds flat!
    Hypnotized Road Hog: I will stop you in two seconds with a flat!
    (He proceeds to give Scratch's vehicle a flat tire, thereby stopping him in two seconds with a flat.)
  • From the opening of "Birth of a Salesman":
    Robotnik: Nincombots! Metal morons! Idiots! Robotic rejects! Seditious slabs of unsalubrious circuitry! You... you... YOU NINCOMBOTS!
    Scratch: Excuse me, Your Viciousness. You already said that!
    Robotnik: Then allow me to repeat myself yet again! YOU! ARE! NINCOMBOTS!
  • In "Big Daddy" when a baby gorilla keeps mistaking Coconuts for his dad.
    • Also, the baby gorilla's introductory scene. He gets hit in the head with a coconut after Coconuts lands in the tree he's under and understandably cries Ocular Gushers for several seconds, the sobs of which sound suspiciously like they were done by Coconuts' own voice actor. But when Coconuts asks the gorilla to help get him down, he immediately stops this and asks "Who talk?" in a ridiculously deep voice.

  • In the German dub, Scratch Screams Like a Little Girl. In the first episode, when Grounder drills him in the tail, Scratch lets out a ridiculously high-pitched shriek of pain.
  • "86 on the chicken!" from "Mobius 5000".
  • After being near an exploding wall in "Tails' New Home", we're treated to a shot of Robotnik with a swollen eye. He then pulls a brick out from underneath his eyelid.
    • Also in the same episode, when Sonic tricks Scratch and Grounder into being smashed by posing as a postman with fan letters (he actually used it twice in the episode), a mushed Grounder responds with this.
    Grounder: Dear Lulu, thanks for the letter. Please take a long walk off a short pier. Formally yours, Grounder.
  • Robotnik's interview in "Lifestyles of the Sick and Twisted".
  • In "Over The Hill Hero", after Sonic uses Captain Rescue's rescue rocket to go up into space so the force field he's trapped in can release him (thanks to air pressure which Sonic and Captain Rescue pointed out themselves), Sonic ends up hanging around in space.
    Sonic: Wait, how am I gonna get down? (realizes) Oh, yeah... I'LL FALL!!!!
    Captain Rescue: I guess my Sneeze Bomb Catcher went a... little off course.
    Sonic: AH-CHOO! A little off course? Are you a... AH-CHOO! ...shmo or what?
  • During the episode, "Boogey-Mania", we get this exchange;
    Robotnik: Fools! Idiots!
    Scratch and Grounder: You called?
    Robotnik: You'll convert your dream machine into a nightmare machine!
    Von Schlemmer: I refuse! Nothing you can do will make me change my mind!
    Robotnik: Everyone has his price. What if I gave you these priceless diamonds?
    • Coconut's arriving with a captured Tails.
    Robotnik: Don't bother me, Coconuts! Can't you see I'm busy violating the good doctor's human rights?
  • The part in "Momma Robotnik's Birthday" where Sonic tricks Scratch and Grounder into thinking they're on a game show and as Robotnik is about to tell them on the phone that the game show host is actually Sonic, Sonic slices the phone cord with a knife, which somehow cuts the line on both ends much to Robotnik's bewilderment.
  • The first episode shows just how stupid the Badniks really are.
    Sonic: I'm over there.
    Badnik: *Looks away, then scratches head confused*
    • Even Doug Walker admitted this was Actually Pretty Funny.
    • Sonic's defeat of Arms and Davy Sprocket. He speeds by and hands them a rope attached them telling them not to let go. They just look at each other bewildered before Sonic drags them for a torturous ride.
  • "Wow Scratch, you almost made me think Dr. Robotnik put a brain in your head". BAM "SILENCE!"
  • From the second episode:
    Scratch: (To Robotnik) D-did I say we'll be rich?
    Grounder: (Offscreen) Yup.
  • Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts' instant Epic Fail in the opening credits, trying to shoot Grounder after Sonic out of a cannon. Coconuts tugs so hard on the detonator it thrusts Grounder in their direction and explodes.
  • Robotnik playing coy towards Sonic in "Trail of the Missing Tails" which leads to all sorts of bizarre poses atop his window sill.
    • When Doctor Warpnick reveals to Sonic that he has Tails captive, the Bound and Gagged Tails just shrugs at Sonic as if to say, "Buddy, I'm as stumped as you are".
    • Whilst Warpnick's explaining his backstory, we cut to Sonic sitting in a lounge chair eating popcorn urging him to get on with it.
    • Robotnik reunite with his cousin:
    Robotnik: I thought I was rid of you, you fish-fondling fruitcake.
    Warpnik: It is I who will be rid of you, you egg-sucking eccentric.
    [They proceed to hit each other with fish, one of whom puts on a football helmet]
    Badniks: Fish fight! Fish fight! Fish fight! Fish fight!
    Scratch: Wow! I guess Dr. Robotnik made us more like him than I thought!
  • In "Slowww Going," Sonic temporarily forgets that his lil' buddy Tails really is just a lil' kid:
    [Sonic asks Tails to jot down all the needed materials and things to be done to fix up the sloths' home as he rattles off the items, then asks to see the results]
    [Tails presents Sonic with a notepad...full of indecipherable scribbles]
    • When Robotnik threatens to fire both Scratch and Grounder when they argue over the Slo-Mo Ray Gun, the two think he ordered them to fire the ray gun and fire it at Robotnik.
    Robotnik: (slowly) Commmmeeee exactly onnne I can dissmantle youuu!
    • And then there's what happens when Robotnik gets hit with the reversed ray gun.
    Robotnik (quickly) Stop! Ican'ttakethisforanhour! Igetspeedsick! Illgetsonicforthis! Hey! Wheredidthatmountaintopcomefrom?!
  • In "Sonic's Song," after Dr. Robotnik has sent out his Music Destroyer robot to stop people listening to the titular song, he begins writing his own song. Hilarity Ensues
    M.D.: Eh, should I put a stop to that? No, of course not! It's definitely not music!
  • The anti-drinking PSA for a couple of reasons. The first is that robots can apparently get plastered, despite their lack of internal organs, and the second is Scratch and Grounder's line delivery whilst drunk, still using their cartoony voices as they slur their lines.
    Scratch: D'oh, hurry up, dingbot! I wanna try this booze!
  • In "MacHopper", Robotnik's line "How dare you interrupt me when I'm trying to look busy!"
  • In "Tails in Charge" Scratch gets exasperated at Grounder being unable to understand his plan to capture Sonic:
    Scratch: Grounder, you're as dumb as a rock!
    Grounder: Metamorphic, igneous, or sedimentary?
    Scratch: Ignoranteous! (hits Grounder on the head with a rock)
  • The beginning of "Robotnikland" where Grounder mentions that Robotnik has eaten nothing but eggs for breakfast for the past 10 years, so he and Scratch try to surprise him by giving him hotcakes instead. He doesn't take it well.
    Robotnik: Hotcakes? Isn't that nice? You know what I like with my hotcakes? (grabs Scratch by the neck and pulls him onscreen)
    Scratch: What?
    Robotnik: (slamming Scratch's face into the hotcakes) Chopped chicken brains!
    [Robotnik takes the lid tray from Grounder, puts it on Scratch's head, and hits it with a ladle as Grounder dances in sync with Robotnik's poundings. Robotnik throws Scratch to the floor as Grounder laughs until Robotnik sets his sights on him]
    Robotnik: Think that's funny, huh? You know what I like with my chicken brains...? [Grounder nods "no"] Fried eggs.
    Grounder: Phew, for a minute there, I thought you were gonna say "fried robot brains".
    Robotnik: No, that's what I cook my fried eggs on. [rips off Grounder's apron and turns a stove knob on his chest, causing him to heat up and a small fire to erupt from his head. Robotnik slams a frying pan on his head, flattening him] Now get me my eggs!
    • Before all that happens, Scratch makes Grounder be the one to surprise Robotnik, to which Grounder complains that the last time he did, Robotnik demoted him to yacht anchor for a week.
  • In "Super Robotnik", Sonic exploits the otherwise-invulnerable Robotnik's "weak point" by dishing out some Literal Ass-Kicking and sending him square into the pit of yuck beneath the beam they're standing on. Immediately after, Robotnik's superpowers vanish thanks to a slow-acting potion he was tricked into absorbing earlier. Far from being bewildered or enraged, he's simply quietly horrified; in this case, even he knows Status Quo Is God.
    Robotnik: Uh-oh. I think the jig is up...
  • A meta-example: Robotnik is voiced by Long John Baldry, who prior was known as a country/blues singer. This led one Sonic fan to make this gem of an animation.

How well does it match the trope?
