Knuckles is annoying me the most both for the height and the fingers. I don't mind him being buffed, but not if the result is him being twice the size of Sonic.

Who should get a haircut.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaugh why did they have to tease it an entire year before it actually airs? The torture, it burns.

As for the art style, I imagine they took some creative liberties there, but if this actually involves Sonic's home planet, any bit of the humor in Sonic Unleashed CGI shorts, and decent animation, this could be worth a watch.

Remember back in the speculation thread for this, where I said that I like stylized animations? I would have really liked an animated series done in the art style of Sonic Battle or the intro to Sonic Riders.

See, those at least kept the characters proportions correct (Riders less so, but it's not a gigantic change). These are iconic characters. Back in the 90s, Sonic was the most recognizable character in America. Why would they so drastically change the design for him? Also, I'm not a fan of 3D animated shows, the only one I ever watched was Jimmy Neutron. I've never seen a 3D show that actually had good models. I would have accepted it in 3D if they used models that at least looked like the games. The Generations models were great.

And let's not even talk about the possibility of a whole new voice cast. I sincerely hope that they at least understand the same thing Sega's known; if you're going to have a whole new voice cast, you keep Mike Pollock. Actually, wouldn't it be cool if they had Ryan Drummond? I know he's got that union thing, and I have no idea how unions actually work.

Hate to say it from one image, but I'm scared. I think I would have preferred the high school comedy mockup image I made, reposted here. But I should know that one teaser image is not enough to judge something on. Equestria Girls caused one hell of a shitstorm on its first image, and I heard that turned out okay.

Insert "Helping Twilight Win the Crown" from Equestria Girls for full effect.

I hate the fact that I'm having the expected knee-jerk reaction of any fan.

But I just can't help it.

Look at those designs. Ugh.

Please die a quick death so we won't have another GOTTA GO FAST meme develop. If the other CG video game based cartoons of recent years have shown, this is a bad idea.

TV shows usually get announced pretty early on, this is actually a pretty late announcement compared to other stuff. For example: the Rabbids tv show was announced in 2010 (though back then Aardman was going to work on it)

Hey, they didn't say which games. It could be the 4Kids cast again for all we know.

...Why would they use the 4Kids voice actors when they'd probably rather keep Sonic having a consistent voice between the show and the games?

:v: Just messing around. But I really hope Sonic and Knuckles don't look stupid. It's weirding me out that Amy and Tails look pretty much exactly as I'd expect and those two are so different.

Good point

Now I don't know what to think

either way the designs are just going to confuse kids when they watch the show then want to play the games and wonder why Knuckles looks so small

Quote

Evan Baily, Donna Friedman Meir, and Jane McGregor, Executive Producers for SEGA, packaged the series, bringing together SEGA, Cartoon Network, and Genao Productions. Sandrine Nguyen and Boris Hertzog, Executive Producers for Genao, assembled a world-class lineup of partners in France, including broadcasters GULLI and CANAL J, Lagardere Entertainment Rights and Lagardère Active TV Licensing & New Business. Baily, Meir and Nguyen developed the series, and Hertzog and McGregor structured the financing and negotiated all the deals. Baily (formerly EVP of Production and Creative Affairs for Classic Media) and Co-Executive Producer Bill Freiberger (The Simpsons, Drawn Together) are showrunners. Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team and driving creative force behind the Sonic games, is overseeing the series to ensure that it's true to the Sonic characters and universe.
So the question is how much of that "overseeing" is Iizuka actually doing. If they had to go up to him and say "Here's the designs, whatdaya think?" and he agreed, then I don't know what to think anymore.

Also none of the designs aside from Tails appear to have gloves. Franchise ruined.

Ah, that would explain the long wait for TMNT's 2003 cartoon series, (I remember the toys coming out way ahead of the show.) but since I was still a kid, the time just flew by.
