11-year-old Sonic the Hedgehog and his 4½-year-old sidekick, Tails, attempt to stop the evil Dr. Robotnik and his vicious robots from taking over the planet Mobius. At the end of every episode, Dr. Robotnik's plan fails because of Sonic's efforts. The show is loosely based on the first two Sonic the Hedgehog video games from 1991-1992.
