I distinctly remember during my teenage years - which is late 90s to early 2000s, or the Sonic Adventure-era - a programme which me horrified me that someone would think Sonic's speed was due to him taking drugs (I think specifically [unsurprisingly] the "speed" drug [despite the fact that "speed" doesn't make you go faster]); though I could be remembering wrong. I didn't have SkyTV back then, so only the terrestrial channels; I'm not sure if we even had Channel 5 back then!
I would guess it was a Channel 4 thing, as only they really did dumb ideas like this - but I could be wrong. It was probably a computer games review show like Bits, but I can't for the life of me remember which one of them it was.
Does anyone else know what I'm talking about, or remember something along these lines?
Looking back now, I can certainly understand why people might think Sonic has been on drugs by the way he looked and acted! Especially compared to his more innocent-looking image of the classic era.
