Old Man Owl, as Sonic the Hedgehog calls him, is a wise old owl who serves as the President's messenger. He either has bad eyesight or poorly-made glasses, gets scared easily, and is somewhat disliked by Sonic due to his slow-wittedness. He is absent-minded and very senile, always yelling at the top of his lungs and doing odd things at random. He claims to have weighed pretty popular with the ladies when he was young.
Old Man Owl first appears in the film to tell Sonic and Tails that the President has a message for them, and then stays at Sonic and Tails' island to take care of their house. After Hyper Metal Sonic arrives, he forces the owl to dress in Sonic's sport clothes, which the owl greatly enjoys. He then becomes an annoyance to Tails and the President as he constantly dances around with a freestyle. In the end, he pilots the President's aircraft to the frozen icecaps, and is saved from an explosion by Metal Sonic.
