The thirty-eighth episode of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Robotnik pursues Breezie and Robotnik Jr. in order to find out why they betrayed him with the intent of building a perpetually loyal robot wife. In a subplot, Junior is in love with Breezie, and enlists Sonic's help in wooing her.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Affirmative Action Girl: After Sonic gets the water in Robotnik Falls to start flowing again, Junior gets washed downriver, and Breezie takes action to save him.

  • Agony of the Feet: At the beginning of the second act of this episode, Grounder runs over Scratch's foot, causing Scratch to hop on one foot, which in turn causes him to step on Robotnik's foot.
  • Ash Face: Robotnik's entire body gets covered in ash when the dynamite stick disguised as a chili dog explodes in his face.
    Robotnik: I hate chili dogs, and I hate that hedgehog!
  • Borrowed Catchphrase:
    • After Sonic rescues Breezie and Junior, and the three escape from Scratch and Grounder's van, Junior catches Breezie in his arms. Breezie's response, "How shall I put this? I know, 'Big whoop!'" Junior is impressed at first, but then Breezie tells him that she said that to make fun of him.
    • When Junior tries to beat Sonic to stopping Robotnik from damming up Robotnik Falls and causing a drought, he says, "It's time to speed, keeds!".

  • Bowdlerize: The Toon Disney broadcast of this episode cuts out the scene where Grounder accidentally burns his hand lighting the fuse to the dynamite stick.
  • Call-Back: When Robotnik decides to make himself a robot wife, Scratch and Grounder bring up the events of Breezie and Junior's debut episodes.
  • The Cameo: Two of Robotnik's lab rats from "Musta Been a Beautiful Baby" make cameo appearances on the talk show Breezie hosts.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: Tails pretends to put himself in danger so Junior will save him and Breezie will think of him as a hero. Sonic saves Tails, but Tails tells Sonic that he wasn't supposed to save him, Junior was. This leads to Junior being put in real danger and Sonic having to save him.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: After Omletta destroys Robotnik's clothes, Robotnik is left wearing white boxers with red polka-dots.

  • Interspecies Romance: Junior has an obvious crush on Breezie. Subverted in that they're both robots respectively designed to look like a human boy and a girl hedgehog.
  • Letting the Air Out of the Band: Robotnik, wanting a wife, puffs out his chest and claims, "Any woman on Mobius would be proud to be 'Mrs. Robotnik'." The music dies as Scratch and Grounder look at him skeptically.
  • Losing Your Head: Robotnik beheads Breezie and Junior as part of his plan to activate Omletta. Being robots, they survive.
  • Love Triangle: Junior has an obvious crush on Breeze, but Breezie doesn't return his affections at first because she still has an obvious crush on Sonic, even though Sonic only thinks of her as a friend.
  • Mythology Gag: Despite being named Robotnik as opposed to Eggman in this continuity, one of the references to eggs Robotnik makes in this episode is calling his robot wife Omletta.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Despite being created from the same mad doctor Robotnik, Breezie and Junior don't consider themselves "siblings" and fall in love with each other. Justified since they're robots.
  • Robotic Spouse: Robotnik invents Omletta to be his wife.
    Robotnik: Ah, a match made in heaven is nothing compared to a match made in the lab.
  • Seesaw Catapult:
    • Scratch and Grounder track Junior down with a van, and find him at a playground that he repainted. As Junior tests a seesaw he repainted to Tiny, an obese hippo, by sitting on one end, Scratch and Grounder toss sandbags onto the other end, launching Junior into the air, and causing him to land in their van. Tiny comments that Junior is too skinny, and wouldn't have flown into the air if he ate right, like him.
    • This episode's "Sonic Says" segment is about playground safety. In it, Tiny slides down the slide at the playground and lands on one end of the seesaw, launching Junior, who is sitting on the other end, into the air again.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Breezie and Junior were created by Robotnik to work for him, but both underwent heel-face turns when Sonic saved their lives. Robotnik has Scratch and Grounder hunt them down so that he can figure out where he went wrong with them and ensure that Omletta won't betray him like they did. Omletta turns against Robotnik when she gets drenched with water and short-circuits.
  • Where's the Kaboom?: At the beginning of this episode, Scratch and Grounder attempt to destroy Sonic with a dynamite stick disguised as a chili dog. Sonic brings the dynamite stick to Robotnik as Scratch and Grounder wonder why they didn't hear an explosion. They are quick to realize that Sonic left with the dynamite stick, but not quick enough to stop Sonic before the dynamite stick explodes in Robotnik's face.
