There was no icon cooler than Sonic the Hedgehog if you were a gamer of a certain age. And in 1999, this cartoon was released as a companion to the very popular Sega Genesis game and featured Jaleel “Steve Urkel” White in the title role. In this series, Sonic was a royal hedgehog that was sent underground with the rest of his family to escape the clutches of Robotnik’s takeover of Mobius due to a prophecy told by the Oracle of Delphius. Sonic was portrayed as a gum-popping rock’n’roll teenager who suffered from more than a slight case of ADHD.
