Mobius is the main setting of the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a planet inhabited by various sentient anthropomorphic animals, and other creatures with different societies. The planet consists mostly of unspoiled nature which its inhabitant live in harmony with.
In the aftermath of the Great War, Dr. Robotnik overthrew the royal family of Mobotropolis, and began his campaign to replace all life on Mobius with robots via roboticization. The Freedom Fighters were soon after formed to end Robotnik's tyranny.

Production background and future plans
According to Ben Hurst, due to the fast-paced production of the stories for Sonic the Hedgehog, the developers of the show never had time to map out Mobius, as they only gave the locations names while the artists filled them in.
In some of the plans for the show, the writers wanted to establish Mobius as a future version of earth. While Julian and Snively were out on a space expedition, a nuclear holocaust had destroyed all human life on the planet, while the animals who survived mutated into sentient beings over several thousands of years and built the society which would become Mobius. Having traveled into the future due to the time dilations effects of space travel, Julian and Snively arrived on Mobius, and Julian would set out to take over this animal-dominated planet, believing it to be his right as human.
- The name Mobius may be a reference to a shape known as the Möbius strip, a shape with no clear start or end that appears to have multiple sides, when in fact there is only one.
