the Archie Comics series was a fine substitute but characters got screwed over and now SEGA is forcing it to be less like the original cartoon. like I said on the Sonic Boom thread, I don't hate comedy but that genre isn't the best for character development and depth. ToonReal, Monte and one user on the TGWTG forum, said that Sonic fails when they try to do serious stories. Well, Satam obviously worked because it was loved and is still the best Sonic cartoon show but popular opinion. also, how has it aged besides Sonic's slang which is very minor? and Sorry if the title of the thread comes off the wrong way, not sure what else to call it and mods have my permission to change it.
