    I have a lot of things to say about the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise, most of them unkind. However, I don't want to be burned at the stake here, so I'll just move to the news.

    :arrow: TSSZ

    It keeps happening

    But that's just me. What do you think? Do you believe this show will be a boom... or a bust?

    The last Sonic animation I enjoyed was that Night of the Warehog short.

    Well fuck my boom/bust pun was already taken.

    Also do they play musical instruments in this one?

    If they call it Sonic Boom, they have to use the opening song from Sonic CD, Sonic Boom...because it's freaking awesome.

    This was coming from trotcon(brony convention), no doubt it's not a coincidence.
    Sonic has gone through SHIT, killing off fans faster than Sonic himself!Launching a show at this time is not a surprise.

    comedic in style

    Pony-esque

    Enough, are you trying to ruin Sonic even more.Comedic, we don't need too much of that.Pony-esque, yeah, Sonic doesn't need that, it doesn't fit with the series.

    and then give it to a horrible channel:

    Cartoon network

    Nickelodeon

    Disney XD

    Characters: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and, Amy Rose

    Implying that it won't have more friends?

    ok

    Ahh my childhood. Sonic Underground was running reruns when I was 8 during the time I was waiting to go to school. Damn if it wasn't amazing, not sure how well it's story would hold up now... :/

    I really hope they take the good parts of MLP (Oh noes! MLP had good parts? Of course it did, or else there wouldn't be bronys). If they make Sonic into a pony I will go down to whoever storyboarded this and strangle them myself.

    No. Just no.

    I hope it takes a knife straight to the jugular, the only thing worse than a Sonic show is a Sonic show with MLP involved in any way.

    So you would rather it not engender some kind of good will upon any Sonic fan? Jeez, you're one tough cookie to please.

    What would happen if the Sonic and MLP fanbase combined to form one huge clusterfuck?

    Probably because Sonic fans are like literally one of the worst fanbases in existence.

    Rapture.

    my little pony based Sonic? So it is going to be aimed at little girls, gender confused children and gay teen boys?
    I don't think Sega would let anyone do that to sonic. I'm calling it now, extremely likely fake!

    No one thought they would turn sonic into a fighter, or that they would release a buggy ass game. You know what? They did. I hope they make this good and not shit on the fanbase even more than they already have.

    As with all new cartoons based on a series I like, I'll watch it for an episode or two. That'll determine if I like it, I'm not going to prejudge it before even any pictures of it are released.

    The 6-year old self within me, that loved Sonic X, is screaming with joy. The 16 year old that I am, is wary as heck.

    Oh god, those were dark times indeed. Sonic X was far better fan service. But in all honesty, I've never seen a truly good anime/cartoon based of a video game, or a movie for that fact. Well... ones that keep to the actual game, they always distance themselves.
