By now, most of us know Sonic’s origin story. SEGA invited its employees to send in ideas for new mascots, and a lot got sent. The hedgehog idea won out, thanks to the utility a hedgehog’s ball form brought to a fast-faced game, while the mustached pajama man was retooled into Dr Eggman. However, there were other submissions, like a chicken, a bulldog and a Bart Simpson rip-off. The chicken almost got reused as a member of Sonic’s rock band, but that concept didn’t make it into the final game. So aside from this, does anyone here know if anything else was done with these rejected mascots, even if it was just a quick reference?
