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 through the mid-90's. Especially in America, characters such as Princess Sally Acorn and Rotor Walrus became just as familiar as Sonic and Miles "Tails" Prower, even if they were never featured as characters in the games.

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.

The setting and characters of the show served as the foundation for the Archie-produced comic series Sonic the Hedgehog, although the comic would also take elements from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the original video game series. The show was also dubbed into Japanese, airing on TV Tokyo.
