    I think you need to watch this movie with a big load of suspension of disbelief. It helps being a fan too... >_>
    Yeah, the movie's pretty bad, but it's at least enjoyable in its campiness. I know I liked parts of it when I first saw it. And I have a feeling it'd be easier to sit through if it wasn't dubbed so poorly, maybe the original Japanese version is marginally better?

    And I don't really understand why everyone seems to dislike Tails so much. Yes his voice is annoying, and his character traits are often misused or flat out ignored, but he's also such a nice relief from all the super-confident people of Sonic's universe, at least when the writing's done well. He can still be a badass, but he doesn't brag about it excessively or act like the centre of attention, he just wants to do good. I've always liked him, despite his inconsistant character quality.
    I suppose if you've never played the games you'd not like him that much... And I'm not sure whether or not that's a tragedy.

    "I think the movie needed the instruction book to explain the backstory!"
    I don't know, Doug. It would probably accidentally call that human/cat girl "Princess Sally", kind of like the Sonic CD instruction book, and cause mass confusion among the fans about the different Sonic continuities, ultimately causing even more rifts and whiney arguments in the Sonic fan base. And my god, we've got enough of that already!

    How can Doug have no clue whether this's any good or not? He did a skit not long before in which Sage from Anime Abandon called him up and chewed him out for claiming some other Sonic was the worst ever; Doug guesses he's trying to demand a collab and Sage gives him a minute-long explanation of just how much he can suck his d*ck.

    this is my favourite adaptation of sonic actually , it's just about sonic ,tails and knuckles going on an adventure to defeat eggman ,what .else could i ask for it's just fun it's not a masterpiece ,but it's fun ,maybe the reason why i don't have any problems with it, is because i'm a sonic fan

    Actually, Australian Knuckles is probably a good idea. Sega just needs to reboot the Sonic franchise... and make it good.

    This will probably mean nothing to you guys but with the comics, which the original Sonic cartoon followed the same plot, the planet Mobius which is where Sonic and all the other characters live, is the future Earth after some sort of catastrophe. The human race basically went extinct except for a select few, which would include the Robotnik family as well as a few others, and animals had evolved or mutated into the current human like state they are in, but animal species might have no resemblance to the original animal itself, which explains hedgehogs and echidnas seeming to look nothing like actual hedgehogs and echidnas. Now you know my useless knowledge of the Sonic universe. And some of it may be off since it has been awhile since I read the comics.

    While I respect his opinion, it's obvious he dosen't know much about the Sonic franchise. Sure Sat Am's story was good, but poor compaired to Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Mania, and the Adventure games.

    Kind of funny how you thought Robotropolis was a silly name for a city here, when that's what the city in SatAM was called (I imagine that's why they named it that for the OVA dub).

    Doug, I love a lot of your commentary but your Sonic opinions have always been the most disagreeable to me. The SatAM show, which you always say is the best one and poop on everything else like this or Adventures. My biggest issue with SatAM is that I don't care if it's "smarter" or has a "good message for kids" or anything of the sort. There are smarter cartoons out there, there are more exciting cartoons are there (like this movie/OVA), and there are cartoons that do both better. Second, to me, SatAM simply just looks pretty mediocre as a cartoon, outside of the pilot. If you're an artist who's heavily studied things like construction and drawing shapes in three-dimensional space and deforming characters in a way that feels controlled and heightens the appeal and comedy instead of just looking sloppy, you'll realize the OVA/movie and AOSTH at its best are more well drawn and animated.
    Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog has some fantastic funny drawings thanks to the involvement of Milton Knight and other very inventive cartoonists and the OVA is even better in that regard while also having some fun animation, comedy and characterization. The story is just window dressing for something funny and exciting and this OVA delivers that in spades. It also has the best portrayal I've ever seen of Sonic in a piece of media where he actually talks and perfectly fits the cocky teenager attitude Sega of America wanted the Japanese developers to give him. A bit of a selfish dick, but ultimately he gets the job done and fulfills his heroic role. Cuz, you know, that's how a cocky teenager villain would act.
    Basically I feel that Adventures excels at comedy, the OVA excels at action-comedy, and SatAM just excels at "being sort of mature for a video game cartoon" - which to me is the least impressive of the bunch. I get why people like it and this is a highly opinionated point I'm making, but I still think people shit on the OVA far too much. Sonic X can be too melodramatic and stupid and can get really cheap, but it does have some kickass 'anime money shot' moments so I can't completely dismiss it.
    Then you have Underground which should just not exist period.

    If i remember correctly, in the end of his review NC said that this movie isn't exactly bad, but it's just weird and not that awesome as everyone says? And yes, NC should go to hell for putting MegaMan 2-3-4-5 in list of bad MegaMan games. Especially for 2 and 3.

    How far animation has come? The animation in this cartoon is dreadful for 90's animation, especially for 1999. The 1940's Superman cartoons have waaaaaaaaay better animation and then you have all the nickelodean, disney etc. cartoons. All a million times better looking than this Sonic cartoon movie and all with better voice acting too.
