Matthew Corgi is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He was a light brown corgi and game show host who presented the show Mock the Doc. He wore a blue outfit decorated with stars and large spectacles with round, blue frames. He also had a habit of saying "Woooo!" at the end of sentences, although it was pointed out by one viewer that all game show hosts do that and that his trousers might be too tight.
While ruler of Mobius, Doctor Robotnik made a daily televised broadcast to his people, and forced all of his subjects to watch it. One evening, Robotnik's broadcast was jammed and replaced by a game show called Mock the Doc. Matthew Corgi was the show's presenter.
In the show, various Mobians (including Teddy Gormless from the Marble Zone, and Bill Walrus) dressed up as Robotnik and did impressions of him, typically portraying him as fat and stupid. The viewers really enjoyed seeing their ruler made fun of, except for Robotnik himself who had Grimer track the signal and sent Troopers to the studio. Robotnik wanted the Troopers to take down Matthew live on air so that everyone would learn what happens to those who mock the doc. But the Troopers got confused when they saw all the fake Robotniks and started blasting each other apart instead. Robotnik decided to shut the station down in person, but when he got to there he found that Matthew had escaped along with the contestants, and that he had left the camera rolling so he could humiliate the doctor one last time.
