  2. The Sonic Dance Power CDs were released exclusively in the Netherlands and had nothing to do with Sonic, except for some pretty strange cover artwork: As OP mentioned earlier, the American VHS artwork tends to be abysmal for some reason. Sonic's Song is probably the worst. Poor Sonic was drawn with floppy "mohawk" spikes, arms growing out of the sides of his head, and a bizarre cross-eyed expression.
  3. I've never seen that one before! I actually kind of like it. When it comes to ugly, poor Knuckles seems to get the short end of the stick. This mutated artwork, from a French SEGA magazine, takes the cake: American artists weren't much better. Sonic and Tails didn't fare very well in this magazine, but Knux looks particularly constipated: This one's not too bad, just interesting. WAY before Archie's crossover arc, this picture was in a magazine to promote a business deal between Sega and Capcom (IIRC). Mega Man looks a little deformed in 90's SOA style. Also, American children's books of the early 90's were often "illustrated" with cut-and-paste stock art. The results can be rather amusing. From a Sonic & Knuckles children's book, here's stock-art Knuckles punching AoSTH Robotnik in the gut. I have no idea what's going on here. It looks like Robotnik has finally defeated Sonic and Knuckles with his flatulence.

  6. Hi! It's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., and to celebrate, the Humble Store (a competitor to Steam) is featuring some deep discounts on a variety of Sonic/SEGA PC games. Notable sale items include: Sonic Hits Collection - A bundle of 15 Sonic games, and their DLC's, for only $17! The package includes: Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Sonic CD Sonic 3 and Knuckles Sonic Spinball Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine Sonic 3D Blast Sonic Adventure DX Sonic Adventure 2 Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed + Metal Sonic & Outrun DLC Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode 1 Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode 2 Sonic Generations + Casino Night DLC They've also got great deals on other SEGA games, including the Dreamcast Collection (Sega Bass Fishing, Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, and Space Channel 5 Part 2) for just $4.19, and Jet Set Radio for 99 cents! On average, that's about $1 per game - a cheap way to fill in any gaps in your Sonic game library. But if you want to take advantage of these low prices, you'd better act fast- the sale ends in 2 days.
  7. Here's a version of Rotor. It's marked "not approved", but it ended up being used for season 2. I personally don't care for season 2 Rotor. His appearance changed so much it's jarring - he just doesn't mesh with the rest of the cast anymore. And of course, your daily dose of Robotnik. Here's "version B" of the last design I posted - same basic shape and costume, but with a more robotic look.

  9. Here it is. It's a 1992 internal document from DIC that someone managed to buy on Ebay a while back. It's written from the perspective of the different characters and gives you an idea of the show's premise (which was pretty much completely fleshed-out by then). Here's some interesting tidbits from the document: - In SatAM, Sally is 14 years old and Sonic is 15. - Rotor's name was once "Boomer", and Snively was called "Quizley". -Besides the cowboy hat, Tails was also supposed to speak in a "deep, gravely Southern accent" , even though he's only four and a half years old (!) - Nate Morgan was going to be in SatAM, but was scrapped. Later, the Archie writers found the old SatAM documents and put him in the comics instead. - Boomer/Rotor had very stinky "Death Ray" fish-breath, which he would use to mess up Antoine's hair! - Antoine was British, not French. - Robotnik was considerably more egg-themed, due to a lab accident that combined his DNA with rotten eggs (an idea which originated in an earlier "Sonic Bible" created by Sega of America).
  10. Another early Robotnik design, with a "steel-plate mohawk" and riding clothes. He's starting to look a little more familiar...
  11. And here we have Bunnie Rabbot concept #8! She "walks funny but is very strong."
  12. I'm just assuming the poor dog was born with a birth defect due to Robotnik's pollution. SatAM was a dark show.
  13. In SatAM, Sonic had a pet dog named Muttski. He only appeared in the first episode, and by then he had been roboticized (although we do get to see one picture of him before Robotnik took over). Well, it seems the idea of Sonic having a dog was a fairly old one - here's a sketch of a character simply billed as "Sonic's Dog". Continuing DIC's tradition of... erm, "creative" character pitches, this dog only has back legs and uses his long ears as the front ones. How that would be animated, I do not know.
  14. ...Okay, here's a few more human Sally concepts, and a very early Tails. The giant cowboy hat is sort of cute on him. It has absolutely nothing to do with any of the games, but it's cute. EDIT: I just noticed that there are little circled numbers on most of the character design concepts. For example, the Sally right below this text has a "21" and the Tails has a "3". I don't really know how animation development works, but I'll bet those numbers tell you the "version" of the design - meaning that, at the time that the Sally below was pitched, 20 other designs had already been created! Now we can really see how the characters evolved - for example, Team Rocket Robotnik was only the 3rd design, so we know he was created before Troll Robotnik.
