Len Janson is an American animator, writer and director. Janson was the series creator of Sonic the Hedgehog television series, having written the series' Bible (not to be confused with the general Sonic Bible), which documented the setting, general backstory and characters from the series. Janson thus created the concept of the Freedom Fighters, Knothole Village, and SatAM characters like Snively, Rotor Walrus, Antoine Depardieu, and Sally, all of whom later transferred over to the Archie Comics series. The Bible also included the character of Nate Morgan, who never appeared in the SatAM TV show but was later incorporated into Archie Comics continuity.
Janson was Sonic the Hedgehog's story editor for both seasons and wrote several episodes himself. In particular, he insisted that the heroes must have both wins and losses, and he was a driving force behind the development of the Sonic/Sally relationship. In the second season, he was one of only three writers, along with Ben Hurst and Pat Allee. He was a particular idol to Ben Hurst (who referred to him as the "King"), and when Hurst was made the story editor of the series Sonic Underground, Hurst managed to give Janson six episodes to write.
