"Sno Problem" is the twenty-fifth produced episode of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, and the fifty-sixth to air during its original syndicated run.


Robotnik introduces the "Ultra Freeze-O-Matic", announcing his plan to freeze every citizen on Mobius and install "Servitude Chips" into the frozen citizens, causing them to completely and unquestionably obey Robotnik, with a test run on Scratch and Grounder proving successful. Meanwhile, at Mount Splatterhorn Sonic and Tails are getting some rest and relaxation when a blizzard suddenly hits the area. Robotnik discovers that Sonic is at Mount Splatterhorn and demands Scratch and Grounder to capture him. After a lengthy ski chase, Scratch and Grounder fall a considerable height and suffer a blow to their heads, causing their Servitude Chips to malfunction. Sonic takes this opportunity to fool Scratch and Grounder into believing that he is their master as to learn Robotnik's current plan. Sonic then commands the two robots to take him to the Freeze-O-Matic to make a few "adjustments". Robotnik learns of this, and believes that Scratch and Grounder have turned traitor, and decides to bury them all with the Ultra Freeze-O-Matic's "Avalanche Activator".

Sonic is able to use the fire from the friction his speed is creating to convert the falling snow into water, allowing him and the group to continue their mission. Meanwhile, Robotnik whips out his "Servitude Chip Remote Regenerator" and uses it to return the robots to his control. Scratch and Grounder, now under Robotnik's command, trick Sonic into crossing a thin ice bridge and capture Tails after the bridge breaks. Scratch and Grounder return to Robotnik's bunker with Tails, on which Robotnik tests the "Servitude Patch", a Servitude Chip designed to work on living, breathing creatures. Tails, now under Scratch and Grounder's control, lures Sonic into the clutches of the two robots, but Sonic easily tricks Scratch and Grounder into commanding Tails to remove his own Servitude Chip, and escapes himself. Robotnik decides to dispose of Sonic himself, using numerous weapons built into the Ultra Freeze-O-Matic. Sonic soon disposes of Robotnik, tossing him into Lake Splatterhorn and using the Freeze-O-Matic's "Frozen Concentrate" feature to freeze the lake. Mount Splatterhorn mysteriously thaws during this time.

Sonic Says Segment

This Sonic Says Segment stresses the importance of bicycle maintenance. It opens with Tails asking Sonic to ride a double seated bicycle. Sonic does not allow a ride until he does a spot check on it. Shortly after the check they start to ride the bike only to find Scratch and Grounder giving chase. Not long after the chase starts it ends as Scratch and Grounder's bike tips over. Sonic uses this as an opportunity to tell kids to keep their bikes maintained well as an unmaintained one could fall apart and thus harm its rider.
