Features

This Poster Mag is littered with errors regarding the first two Sonic cartoons, often mistaking them for each other and a completely unreleased version. The features begin with the logo from "SatAM", suggesting it belongs to "AoSTH".

"Sonic the TV Show!" invites readers to learn about the main characters of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic is described as the "fastest, coolest blue hedgehog in the known universe". The hot-headed 15 year old has a price on his head and protects Mobius while on the run from the Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad (S.S.S.S.S.S.). Doctor Robotnik is an inventor obsessed with eggs and chickens and plans to turn Mobius into a world without music, fun or living creatures. He sends out robots Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts to capture Sonic but they always fail, without fail. Finally, there's Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic's young fox friend who can use his tails to get him out of tricky situations and knows lots about living in the country.

The next double-page spread features pictures of Sonic in action in the cartoons. However, none of the four pictures are related to either TV show, but actually are shots from an unreleased concept. The largest, a picture of The Freedom Team (that first appeared in Issue 12's News Zone) shows Sonic leading a tough group consisting of Johnny Lightfoot, Princess Acorn, Joe Sushi, Chirps, Flicky and Porker Lewis, although none of them look like either their STC counterparts or in-game characters. Three other pictures show Sonic and "Acorn" fighting Badniks, Sonic kissing a fish and Robotnik watching as heroes are sent into his "robotic transformation machine".

The following two pages list the differences between AoSTH and SatAM. The first cartoon's description is similar to that on an early page. SatAM is described accurately, with the Freedom Fighters hiding in Knothole as Robotnik takes over the world. New characters Sally, Bunnie, Antoine and Rotor (listed here as Boomer, similar to his early Archie Comics counterpart) attempt to fight back against Robotnik, his nephew Snively and faithful robots Crabmeat, Buzz Bomber and Cluck. Beneath these descriptions are pictures of the "good guys" and "bad guys", although they are depicted as being in both cartoons.

Finally, there is a rundown on every episode of 'Adventures', each accompanied by a brief description. Unlike most editions of STC, the credits also appear here at the end, followed by an advert to buy regular issues of Sonic the Comic.
