Sonic the hedgehog (SatAM) takes place in the 33rd century on the planet Mobius, where the evil Dr. Robotnik has taken over Mobotropolis with the help of his army of SWATbots and nephew Snively, and reshapes the city into his own image, Robotropolis. The city’s once proud king, Maximillian Acorn, has been exiled, by Robotnik, into a dimensional warp known as “The Void” and the city’s palace is now Robotnik’s new headquarters. Those who were unlucky to escape Robotropolis were roboticized, turning them into loyal robotic subjects of Robotnik. Those who were able to escape retreated toward the Great Forest and built a hidden village known as Knothole. It is here, a group of revolters known as the Freedom Fighters plan and launch their attacks to foil Robotnik’s schemes.

After SatAM aired, Ben Hurst revealed that the red eyes shown at the end of “The Doomsday Project” episode belonged to Naugus, a powerful sorcerer and mentor to Robotnik who was imprisoned in “The Void” during The Great War. The third season depicted Snively trying to regain control over Robotropolis, but failing miserably. As a last effort before losing the city completely, Snively would open the void to free Naugus, and as a result freeing both Robotnik and King Acorn. Naugus would then seize control and use the king as bait to lure Princess Sally into captivity. Robotnik would then dropdown to being Naugus’ lackey, while Snively would eventually fall even further down the corporate ladder. The third season would also bring Sonic and Tails’ relationship closer to that of the video games and the origins of both Robotnik and Snively. Unfortunately due to poor ratings and the new ABC president at the time, the show was cancelled.
