Television movies

There were two New Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog movies.

  • Sonic Chaos - When Professor Caninestein's Japanese cousin, Professor InuKagaku-sha, gets threatened by Dr. Robotnik (as did Caninestein in the original show before), he gets word that the doctor has hijacked his inventions and reprogrammed them for evil to terrorize the city. Sonic and friends make their way to stop Robotnik, but little do they know that he's secretly planning to unleash his updated Silver Sonic, using the city's tower to charge it up, as well as hiring another intern (who is a character bearing similarities to Rouge the Bat), who isn't a robot this time, to help him get his hands on a Chaos Emerald.
  • Sonic and Felix's Twisted Adventure - a crossover with The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat. Sonic the Hedgehog and Felix the Cat meet in this adventure. Plus, Rosco gets a bump on the head and becomes a genius. Peking Duck teams up with Robotnik to catch the hedgehog and the cat's magic bag. And Amy seeks out advice from Candy Kitty in getting Sonic to notice her. Cameo made by Poindexter, but no appearance or mention of the professor.
(the story is still being written, so info subject to change)

Shows that almost aired on UBC

  • Sonic X - The show was originally going to be sold to UBC, and would keep the video game voice actor's roles intact. As soon as the plans fell through, 4Kids Entertainment acquired it and used their in-house voice actors for the dub.
