Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. He is an anthropomorphic hedgehog endowed with super speed and champion of the Knothole Freedom Fighters. He is able to harness the forces of the Power Rings, which charges up his super speed.
Sonic was raised by his Uncle Chuck in Mobotropolis, during the reign of the King. As a child, Sonic used to play with his friend, Princess Sally. Sir Charles was a top inventor of the kingdom and a personal friend of the King. Following the Great War, a warlord named Julian (later known as Doctor Robotnik) orchestrated a coup d'état and banished the King to the Void. Julian then renamed himself Robotnik and ordered that all citizens of Mobotropolis be roboticized and transformed into mindless slaves. Sonic and Sally, along with several other children, were spirited out of the city and hid inside a woodland camp that would eventually become Knothole Village. At the same time, Uncle Chuck fell into Robotnik's hands and was roboticized. Sonic remains frustrated by his inability to free his uncle from Robotropolis.
Sonic is a cool teenager with a big attitude. He possesses a lot of self-confidence and has a playful, yet never mean-spirited arrogance about him, which lets him have fun even in the face of danger and crack jokes while staring evil in the eye.
Sonic is very impatient when it comes to waiting and will actively seek out action, which makes him ignore manners and social customs and act before thinking. Because of his attitude, Sonic also sometimes come across as egotistical, but he is never selfish in his actions. Despite his flaws, Sonic is a good-natured person with a big heart and a strong sense of justice, and is fully devoted both to his friends and the Freedom Fighter cause.
Troll Associates book
In 1994 the book publisher by the name of Troll Associates released a book based on the SATAM wich told a different story than that of the cartoon. In this book Sonic and Robotnik were both orphans raised by Uncle Chuck. Sonic spent all his time running laps around the town, trying to test his speed, and Robotnik spent all his time trying to build robot servants for himself. Even when they were young, Sonic and Robotnik did not get along. One day Uncle Chuck creates power rings in order to allow Sonic to boost his speed and strength, on that same day Robotnik steals parts of Chuck's tractor in order to use them in his robots. While Sonic is out playing with his friends, Uncle Chuck tries to use the tractor, however it doesn't work, and crashes, trapping both Chuck and Robotnik. Sonic hears the cries for help and rushes to save them, unable to move the tractor by himself, Sonic gets a power ring from Chuck's workshop and uses it to move the tractor and bring Robotnik and his uncle to the hospital.
Weeks later, one of Robotnik's robots betrays him and reveals to Chuck that Robotnik had been using household appliances to construct his machines, he then tells Chuck that the reason that the tractor malfunctioned was because Robotnik had taken components from it. Chuck was furious, and so was Robotnik when Chuck grounded him. For the following weeks Sonic and Chuck continue to make more power rings, while Robotnik steals many apliances of the house and uses them to build a powerful robot (made from a fridge) wich he then uses to attempt to destroy Sonic and Uncle Chuck. With quick thinking, Sonic defeats the robot by wrapping it in a garden hose. His robot defeated, Robotnik dissapears to parts uknown.
Eight years later, Sonic is faster than ever and his uncle has opened a Chilli dog stand, with Sonic as his speedy delivery boy. Sonic returns from a delivery and his Uncle gives him a pair of friction resistant shoes that wont burn up due to Sonic's remarkable speed. Sonic then proceedes to deliver chilli-dogs in record time, when Uncle Chuck recives an order for 200 Chilli Dogs. Sonic Speeds off to the address. Sonic Reaches a great factory filled with traps, and he barely manages to escape (although the chilli dog cart is destroyed).
Sonic returns home to discover that Uncle Chuck and their dog muttski are missing and, the Chilli Dog stand is destroyed, Sonic is then ambushed by a group of robots. He quickly destroys them and reads the logo on one of them to Discover that his childhood rival Robotnik has returned and is the culprit behind Uncle Chuck and Muttski's dissapearences. On the way back to the factory, Sonic meets Sally Acorn who tells him that she is the princess of Mobius, and that her father, the king, was captured by Robotnik. Sonic and Sally quickly become allies and manage to sneak into Robotnik's factory, where many of the inhabitants of Mobius have been captured and hypnotized by Robotnik. Sonic and Sally are discovered by SWATbots, but Sonic uses a power ring to destroy the robots and save Chuck and Muttski. Sonic and Sally escape into the Great forest were she tells him of the freedom fighters and invites him to join them, Sonic accepts and she leads him to Knothole village. Sonic then uses the power rings to de-hypnotize Chuck and Muttski.
