Tails Prevails is the thirty-ninth episode of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. Despite being produced as the thirty-ninth episode, it aired as the thirty-fourth episode during the show's original run.


Taking place in Sky City, it's Sonic's birthday and Tails builds Sonic an interesting gift. Realizing Tails' potential with mechanics, Sonic asks Professor Von Schlemmer to make Tails his research assistant, but then Robotnik captures and impersonates him to get Tails to build his latest anti-Sonic weapon.

  • After going into the pipe and out of the bathroom, Sonic breaks the fourth wall when he points at the camera and says "Don't even ask..."
  • After Robotnik placed the pipe into the vent, Sonic's mouth doesn't move when he is screaming. This error was later seen when he moaned and said, "You only live once, but I live fast".
  • When Robotnik targets Sonic from his flying machine he says “I have you now!” in a deep voice that is similar to that of Darth Vader from Star Wars, who says the exact same line when he targets Luke Skywalker from his spaceship in The Battle Of Yavin.
  • When Robotnik chews out Scratch & Grounder, he calls them "the Bungling Bros. Burnout & Bailing Circus," a pun on "Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus."
