Sonic Boom (Untagged Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I liked "Where Have All The Sonics Gone", it had some funny moments, especially with Morpho. I especially liked how Morpho kept trying to act like Sonic throughout the episode, yet couldn't quite impersonate him right. He even had Sonic say wrong catch phrases, including "What's Up, Doc?" from Looney Tunes, and "Gotta Catch 'Em All" from Pokemon, lol! 

The episode starts off with Mombot treating Eggman and Morpho like sons. Eggman is still calling Morpho Steve, and Morpho tells him to stop calling him Steve, and call him Morpho instead. He then starts morphing into different characters, including Vector and Shadow, that was pretty funny. Eggman and Morpho decide to team up and get rid of Sonic. They send Sonic to a different dimension. Eggman points back to the episode where there were 2 Knuckles in their dimension, and questions if having two Sonics in another dimension will cause the worlds to be destroyed. Morpho points out how he sent Sonic to a dimension where Sonic doesn't exist, and the two break out into an evil laugh. With Sonic gone, Eggman and Morpho decide to try and trick everyone into thinking Sonic is still around, so no one gets suspicious. Morpho turns into Sonic, and tries tricking Amy into following him to the canyon. Amy notices Sonic is talking too romantically, and automatically assumes it's Morpho. She tells Morpho she's not falling for his tricks again, and slams the door in his face. 

Meanwhile, Sonic arrives at the alternate dimension, and the first thing he sees is that an alternate dimension Knuckles is a workout guru at a gym. Sonic is creeped out. Sonic comes across an alternate dimension Amy and waves to her, but she gets defensive, and pulls out her hammer. Sonic is surprised to see Amy treating him like a stranger. However, an alternate dimension Eggman called Lord Eggman shows up, and scares everyone but Sonic. Sonic stands up to Lord Eggman, and Sonic ends up getting arrested for standing up against Lord Eggman. While in prison, Sonic realizes he's in an alternate dimension. The alternate Amy breaks a hole in the wall, and frees Sonic. She appreciates how Sonic is willing to stand up against Lord Eggman, and she takes him to meet up with the rebellion. It turns out an alternate Sticks is the leader of the rebellion, this version of Sticks has an eye patch. Sonic decides to join the resistance, and he encourages the others to get Knuckles to join them. (I missed that part, because my stupid internet connection was acting up, and my screen went black with a buffering symbol...) 

Meanwhile, back in Sonic's dimension, Morpho is having troubles with getting everyone to believe he's Sonic, and everyone at Meh Burger starts laughing at him. Meanwhile, Sonic questions why they don't get Tails to have him join the resistance, but Sonic is shocked to find that this world's version of Tails is Lord Eggman's mechanic. Sonic is horrified to see Tails helping Lord Eggman. Sonic starts telling Tails how he's better than this. Tails keeps looking up to Lord Eggman like he's Lord Eggman's partner, but Lord Eggman keeps talking down to Tails, and was even willing to let Tails get killed in a crossfire attack against Sonic. Sonic ends up saving the alternate Tails, and alternate Tails is touched that Sonic looked out for him. Alternate Tails decides to switch sides, and teams up with Sonic and the resistance to defeat Eggman. The gang teams up and defeats Lord Eggman for the moment. Tails then builds a portal for Sonic to take and return home to. The resistance thanks Sonic for saving them, and Sonic tells them that as long as they stand together, Lord Eggman will never be a threat again. Sonic returns home, and reunites with his team, and defeat Eggman and Morpho. The episode ends with Mom Bot nursing Eggman and Morpho's heads, after being defeated by Sonic. 

Overall, I liked the episode, but I wish my stupid internet connection wasn't acting up... I missed a few moments, and the video quality turned out terrible, so I won't have as many screenshots to share this week... I do think the episode felt a bit rushed though. I liked the set up of Sonic teaching a world without him to fight for themselves. I liked how Amy saw Sonic as their champion, I liked how an eye patch wearing Sticks was the leader of the rebellion, that was pretty funny, and I liked the surprise twist of Tails being Lord Eggman's assistant, only to switch sides when Sonic showed that he cared and believed in him. It was a fun story, but I wished the episode had more time to truly flesh it out. I felt the action scenes were too short, and Sonic and the team defeated Lord Eggman way too easily and quickly. Regardless, it was still a fun episode with many hilarious cameos and shout outs to other franchises, thanks to Morpho.

I find it cute how Amy knows Sonic enough to realize it was Morpho.

I thought it was cute too. She found it too good to be true. She sounded so excited at first, then she realized something was strange about hearing Sonic be so nice to her. It kind of reminds me of her response towards Eggman in the meteor, when Eggman was in Sonic's body, and he called her "Amy dear". She seemed so unused to Sonic being so nice to her. I also loved Morpho's response to Amy slamming the door on him, it had "exposed" and "busted" written all over his face. I thought it was awesome to see Amy figure out it was Morpho right away, and how she was able to expose him for not even saying Sonic's correct catch phrase. The real Amy may not have gotten a lot of screen time in this episode, but it still made up for her lackluster scenes from last week's episode.

Even Sonic's response to meeting Alternate Amy was kind of cute. He seemed so happy to see her, and wasn't aware he was in an alternate dimension yet,  but alternate Amy pulled out her hammer, and told him to back off. Sonic looked so confused over seeing Amy treat him like a bad stranger. He even asked "Is this because I didn't go with you to the farmer's market?"

Amy and Knuckles were the only one of Sonic's friends to actually get some screen time in this episode.Knuckles was the only one around Sonic, before Sonic was sent to another dimension. Sonic and Knuckles were racing their vehicles around, until Eggman and Morpho dropped a portal in front of Sonic.  The  actual Tails and Sticks only showed up briefly at the very end to team up with Sonic and the others, and get back at Eggman and Morpho for sending Sonic away. The real Tails and Sticks had no dialogue in this episode, but we still got to hear their voices in the form of alternate dimension Sticks and alternate dimension Tails.

Making alternate dimension Sticks the leader of the rebellion was also fun to see, especially since Sticks was missing entirely in last week's episode. I was honestly guessing Amy was going to be the leader of the rebellion, but it makes a bit more sense for Sticks to be the leader in that dimension. There are so many stories where whenever a threat rises, the people suddenly resort to following the paranoid/crazy one who they used to ignore, so seeing Sticks as the leader was pretty funny and suitable for that situation.

It's too bad the episode wasn't longer, I would have loved to see more exposition on how Lord Eggman took over, and how Sticks rose to lead a rebellion. So far, it looked like Amy and Sticks were the only ones of Sonic's friends in this dimension to have already known each other as friends. 

We didn't really get to see who else was a part of the rebellion, besides Amy and Sticks. We did see glimpses of Wild Cat and a few Gogobas being at the camp of the resistance, but they weren't shown for the rest of the episode. It felt kind of weird for Amy to say she's going to introduce Sonic to the rebellion, only to introduce him to her leader Sticks, yet ignore the other members. If they were a rebellion, then why did they ignore the others, and only recruit Knuckles to join them in taking down Lord Eggman?  It was kind of  shame to see Lord Eggman be set up to be a more threatening version of Eggman, yet Sonic and pals defeated him so easily.  Lord Eggman literally had the same set up as the real Eggman. He had the isolated volcanic island lair, with no men or robots guarding it, and only sent robots out as soon as Sonic and pals confront him. Even the actual Eggman from Sonic's dimension put up more challenging attacks than Lord Eggman.  You'd think someone like Lord Eggman would have guards patrolling 24/7, or something, I mean, Lord Eggman was able to have the village police arrest Sonic with ease, yet he had no one to stop the rebellion when they came storming through his lair? 

Despite most of Sonic's actual friends having very limited screen time , it was still a fun episode, and seeing Sonic interact with the alternate dimension was entertaining. If only it was a full length episode, or multi part episode. Despite it's pacing issues, it was still a good episode.

I get the feeling that that's the last and most we'll see of any other non-Boom characters in this show.

...He said nothing and Keith Silverstein is credited with boing Boom. I'm pretty sure we're seeing him again/for real.

I hope that would be the case. He looks to have an interesting design.

I should point out that Bill did say some episodes were airing out of order, (which explains why we're seeing the racecars and some other things early). Could be likely for Vector to show up again with some dialogue and personality this time.

Despite feeling a bit out of character, I did like how Mom Bot was shown to have her own place, and how Eggman occasionally visits her. I also found it kind of funny for her to treat Morpho like he's really her son and Eggman's brother. I laughed over Eggman trying to explain how Morpho isn't his brother, and is created by himself from another dimension.
