Basil Poultry is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. An anthropomorphic chicken, he was the Zone-Leader of the Tower Hill Zone in the days after Doctor Robotnik was overthrown as dictator of Mobius.
On the first Christmas after Robotnik was overthrown, Basil Poultry was determined to get everything just right. Unfortunately, a series of disasters (including carol singers with laryngitis, woodworm in the Christmas trees and damp Christmas crackers) led him to become so stressed that he actually flipped and decided to cancel Christmas altogether! He put on a powered exo-suit and started destroying everything festive, pulling down Christmas lights, dropping Christmas cards in the river, and kicking the heads off snowmen. Fortunately, he was stopped by Tails, who made him realise that there was more to Christmas than just crackers, cards and snowmen. The people of the Zone were quick to forgive him and asked him to join their celebrations, making him realise that he could not crush the Christmas spirit.
