"Over the Hill Hero" is the seventeenth episode of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. Despite being produced as the seventeenth episode, it aired as the sixth episode during the show's original run.





Sonic and Tails cross paths with an old hero named Captain Rescue, only to come to regret it. He insists on helping the two heroes out in their adventures, but he ultimately just makes things worse. Sonic eventually has enough and makes it perfectly clear that he doesn't want Captain Rescue around. Doctor Robotnik, on the other hand, wants him to stay and easily manipulates the old hero, creating big trouble for Sonic. Now, Sonic's life depends on Tails and a regretful Captain Rescue.

Sonic Says

Tails: "I think we're lost, Captain Rescue."
Captain Rescue: "All we have to do is head north."
Old Bear: "Lost, eh? Don't you young folks know that moss grows the heaviest on the north side of a tree?"
Tails: "Thank you sir!"
Captain Rescue: "Thanks."
Tails: "That old bear knows what he was talking about."
Captain Rescue: "Right, Tails. Old people can be very wise, and they often know the right direction to take in life."
