Wilbur Z. Sprockethole the Third is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a hack film director who describes himself as "The world's greatest film producer!"


He was apparently responsible for a "blockbuster" called Macho Weapon, Part Sixteen, and intended to create a movie about Amy Rose and Tekno the Canary. However, he chose two male, muscle-bound action movie stars (Pex Ripple and Brawny Gungho) to play the girls, and to make matters worse he cast Amy and Tekno themselves as two vapid damsels in distress with a line each on page 97 of the script. The project fell through when Sprockethole decided to use real Badniks in the movie, since they were cheaper than special effects. The Badniks' programming kicked in when they recognised Amy and Tekno, and they went berserk, destroying the studio. Sprockethole's action stars were helpless, so Amy and Tekno saved the day. Nevertheless the studio was ruined and the film was never made, something that both Amy and Tekno were quite pleased about.[1]
