In a flashback, there is a gathering of badnik bounty hunters. Dr. Robotnik called this group together to offer them an award of a billion mobiums for Sonic alive or otherwise. Sonic is in the audience, but it takes everyone a long time to realize it. Robotnik eventually sicks all the robots on him. Sonic runs out and tricks each robot into a path of their own destruction.
Back at his lair, Dr. Robotnik decides to make two new Robots for the sole purpose of catching Sonic. He throws many ingredients into a machine including a pair of rotten eggs. As a result, the machine produces Scratch. Thinking Robotnik is his mother, Scratch begins kissing Robotnik and licking his body. Annoyed, but not taking it too seriously, Robotnik clones Scratch with his robot making machine. Scratch pulls one extra lever which was not supposed to be pulled. The machine produces Grounder and right off the bat, the two start bickering about who is Robotnik's favorite. Robotnik dubs the two robots his Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad.
Coconuts watches from the bathroom. Coconuts is jealous of these new robots because he had been rejected by Robotnik and put on latrine duty. He vows to catch Sonic himself and win Robotnik's love.
Sonic and Tails are out running when they find a Chili Dog stand which is run by Coconuts in disguise. The stand becomes a large Robot that chases the heroic duo, but is eventually defeated. Similarly Scratch and Grounder try a number of clever plots to catch Sonic. Eventually they succeed in capturing Tails, thus Sonic gives himself up to ensure Tails' safety.
With Sonic and Tails captured, Scratch and Grounder call Robotnik to come and pick them up. Coconuts sneaks up on them and ties up Scratch and Grounder so as to take credit for capturing Sonic and Tails. Sonic convinces Coconuts to put Scratch and Grounder in the cage with him. Coconuts proceeds, but sure enough when he opens the cage, Sonic escapes and traps all three badniks in the cage. he frees Tails and creates a dust storm making Dr. Robotnik unable to see when he flies in on his Egg-o-Matic. Sonic tricks Robotnik into landing on the cage and smashing up his own henchmen.
Back in modern day, Sonic ends the story and is still hanging from the tree. Scratch and Grounder don't like the story because they don't catch Sonic in the end. Sonic escapes the tree, then he and Tails run away.
Sonic teaches Tails to only call 911 in case of a real emergency.
- Sonic's Doctor disguise is re-used in episode 27, "Boogey-Mania". This is the episode where he says his name is Dr. Pimento, and also in "Best Hedgehog".
- Robotnik's Anti-Sonic speech looks similar to the Game Over screen from Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
