Sonic the Hedgehog (also referred to as SatAM within the fanbase) is an American animated television series created by DiC Entertainment. First airing on Saturday, September 18th, 1993, the series (along with its lighter, syndicated sister show Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog) was the face of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise on television through the mid-90s. This cartoon is based on the Archie-produced monthly comic series Sonic the Hedgehog, whose characters had debuted in November 1992.

The series was produced by companies in the United States, Italy, Spain and Korea. It was a co-production between DIC Entertainment and Sega of America, Inc. in the United States and Reteitalia S.p.A. in Italy in association with Telecinco; the animation work was outsourced to foreign studios such as Saerom Animation in Korea.

Though canceled after only two seasons, the show maintains a cult following, with a rabid fanbase that continues to dig into the history of the show and dream of the day when the second season's cliffhanger can be resolved on screen.
