Sonic The Hedgehog Getting A CG-Animated Show On Cartoon Network
Sonic the Hedgehog is running toward a new TV show this fall on Cartoon Network. Variety is reporting that the iconic SEGA character will get his first CG-animated series thanks to Bill Freiberger (The Simpsons, Drawn Together). The new series will re-introduce the fast, little blue character in 2014.
The show will initially be 52 11-minute episodes aimed at kids 6-11. The comedy will revolve around Sonic, his friend and sidekick Tails, and their battles with Dr. Eggman. The teaser image below was released along with the announcement. The show’s producers will work closely with the head of Team Sonic, Takashi Lizuka, to ensure it’s true to the character’s universe. SEGA chief content officer Hiroyuki Miyazaki said of the series:
Sonic is the star of the SEGA universe and the stage is now set for him to shine like never before. We’re ensuring that the Sonic legacy will be introduced to a new generation of children across the globe.
This will be Sonic’s fifth TV series and new video games are already in the works. With work on the show well underway we’ll hear, and hopefully see, more about it soon. What do you think about Sonic getting a new CG-animated show?
