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, 18 September 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.

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.
