Sonic the Hedgehog is an American-Canadian animated television sitcom co-created by Bloo J, Seth MacFarlane, and Mike Judge for Nick at Nite and The Bloo DeTour. It is based on the video game franchise of the same name.
Like The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, Futurama, and Rick and Morty, Sonic the Hedgehog was designed specifically for mature audiences, featuring comical (sometimes bloody) violence, adult humor including coarse language (some swears are censored, though uncensored on DVD), running gags and pop culture references.
The show is produced by Paramount Television Animation, Sega of America, Judgemental Films, Where's Lunch, Klasky-Csupo, Fuzzy Door Productions, NX, Games Animation Inc, and Krusty Krab Productions.
Planet Mobius has some new defenders: Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Knuckles. The four save the world from Dr. Eggman, Scratch, Grounder, and the other villains, while also trying to live a normal life at the same time.
