Sonic's Shack is a location that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a beach hut on Seaside Coast and the residence of Sonic the Hedgehog. It also serves as Team Sonic's primary relaxation spot.
Sonic's Shack is a round, single-room wooden hut located close to the beach. It has a porch surrounding it, a front entrance without a door and large windows across the walls with wooden blinds. The shack possesses a round straw roof, with a strong mast holding the roof center and smaller pillars holding up the edges, forming a roof over the porch. The shack has very few furniture, such as a hammock, a small TV set, a coffee table, a small stow, carpets and a ceiling fan. It also contains some more novel items such as a land-line with an answering-machine (in spite of its rather isolated location) and a dartboard fashioned from a turtle shell. Sonic also presumably keeps a coconut husk collection here, though it has yet to be seen. Outside the shack is a set of beach-chairs and an umbrella. The shack itself is far from up to code, having been deemed dangerous to be in during a storm.
It has been emphasized that Sonic's Shack lies in a very lovely location, having been described as a beach front paradise with a majestic view of the sun setting over the sea.
When Sonic held try-outs for a new sidekick, his shack served as the meeting place for the candidates, including Amy. Since he allowed anyone to participate, Sonic begrudgingly let the most competent candidates―his old sidekick Tails, Dr. Eggman and Fastidious Beaver (chosen on a whim)―to move on. Amy soon came back to the shack for a recall, but abandoned her attempt.
While chilling at Sonic's Shack, Tails showed Team Sonic his translator robot UT, who creating tension among them by translating their private thoughts from the subtext of their speech. The next day at the shack, UT "translated" Team Sonic's comments into insults at each other. However, Tails discovered that this UT was a fake planted by Eggman and went to save the real UT while team stayed at the shack, not thinking UT was worth it. UT later returned with a rescue call from Tails, prompting Team Sonic to head out. Sonic's Shack was later where Sticks practiced with her team in preparation for the Awardy Awards.
While trying to set an a lunch at Sonic's Shack, Amy only got lack of compliance from Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. Eggman then appeared to hire Amy to redecorate his lair for Modern Lair Magazine, which Amy accepted, much to her team's shock. Missing Amy, Team Sonic soon left the shack to check on her. Sonic later found a basket of Evil Cookies made by Eggman on his porch, but had to it leave to help Tails. While he was gone, Knuckles, Amy and Sticks came by Sonic's Shack and ate a cookie, turning them into Eggman's clones. When Sonic and Tails returned, only one cookie was left, which Sonic gave to Tails. Later chilling in his shack, Sonic was informed of what had happened to his friends by Orbot.
Sonic's Shack soon became the home of the Gogobas, who wanted Sonic to protect them. After foiling an attack on the shack by Eggman and his Badniks, Sonic and Tails manipulated both the Gogobas and Eggman into having the former live with the latter. During their search for Eggman, Orbot and Cubot came to Sonic's Shack to ask Sonic and Knuckles. While Knuckles was caught up in his recollection of their last encounter, Sonic told them where Eggman went. A while later, Tails visited Sonic's Shack in his search for his team, only to get a call from Sonic saying there were being held captive elsewhere.
One time, Knuckles visited Sonic at his shack to gloat of how he had tipped the luck balance of the universe in his favor by harming himself. Sonic, however, was only worried about Knuckles' injuries. When Sonic and Eggman switched bodies, Eggman was brought to Sonic's Shack by Team Sonic who thought he was Sonic, where Eggman plotted the team's destruction. Sonic (in Eggman's body) came to the shack, but his friends did not believe his story and drove him off. Sonic soon returned with Eggman's army to battle Eggman, where Tails came and verified Sonic's claim, giving Sonic the opportunity to switch back with Eggman. Sonic would later retreat to his shack when Eggman (temporarily) gave up villainy to enjoy the peace, but soon grew bored with it.
As Team Sonic tried to play volleyball at the shack, they were attacked by Crab Bots, but because Sonic was creating a terrible noise when running, his team had him to stay put. Eggman then showed up, where he earned Sonic's trust and offered to fix his problem. Sonic soon returned to the shack wearing Eggman's Power-absorbant Insoles, only for Eggman to show with his Giant Robot. Team Sonic tried fighting the robot, but the insoles in Sonic's unremovable shoes only made it stronger the more he ran, so Sonic resorted to overloading the robot with power. When Team Sonic saw a movie at the shack, Eggman attacked in his Egg Tank. As Eggman countered one of the Egg Tank's deflected shots with another weapon, a lightning bolt struck both attacks, creating an endless time loop. Eggman, who remained unaffected by the time loop, tried using it to attack Sonic's Shack until he got it right, only for the time loop to reset it. Eggman thus teamed up with Team Sonic to break the loop, though they spend time at the shack convincing Knuckles to help.
After a long day, Sonic took some time at his shack to read a library book from Amy, which he retrieved the next day. When Knuckles was napping at Sonic's Shack, Sonic and co. played a prank on him when they noticed Eggman was spying on them. The team thus lured Eggman into a prank which made Eggman desert technology. As such, when Sonic tried relaxed at his shack, Eggman would intrude to try and defeat him with makeshift weapons. Later at his shack, Sonic got caught in traps set up by Sticks to protect him from a curse, prompting Sonic and his team to resolve the issue.
Rejecting Eggman's offer to play himself in his movie, Sonic retreated to his shack, but Amy soon came and told Dave the Intern had been given the role, prompting Sonic to join the movie. When waking out on the set, Sonic returned to his shack, only to leave when Orbot and Cubot warned him that Eggman was mining metal for new robots. Sonic eventually sought refuge in his shack when the Unnamed Village turned against him for being insensitive. Seeking counsel from his team, Amy got them to join her sensitivity seminar, much to everyone's dismay. Another time, Team Sonic was having a barbeque at Sonic's Shack when a Knuckles from another dimension appeared in their midst, whom they helped home. Dave the Intern later came to Sonic's Shack to fry Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy with a magnifying glass and the sun. However, he could only create a disco lightening which the team danced to.
Needing to investigate Justin Beaver's producer, Dixon, Sonic took Tails and Knuckles to his shack to form their own boy band, thereby allowing them to get in backstage on Justin's set. The trio quickly got the choreograph down, but had trouble coming up with their band name, which ended up being "Dreamboat Express." Another time, Sonic took Tails to his shack to give him advice on how he should talk to his crush Zooey with the aid of Comedy Chimp. Sonic and Metal Sonic later arrived at the shack for a showdown which Sonic emerged victorious from.
While Sonic let Kyle the Gorilla live with him, the clumsy simian would cause extensive damage to Sonic's Shack until Sonic had him look for a job, although Kyle would return to the shack after several failed attempts until he found the right job. Regardless, Kyle would still drop by the shack to hang out with Sonic, although at inconvenient times for Sonic.
