Sally Acorn is weird regardless of context.


Anyway as usual, while looking this up I came across something else accidentally:

Ladies and gentlemen, who wants to go digging for early 90s Australian raves to see if this was an officially licensed thing?


I'm sure I could find some appropriate music.

So weird that they'd give Sally a statue though and not like, Tails or Knuckles or any other proper Sonic character.

I'm sure anyone at the park would disagree. I own a mint coke cup which actually has Sally on it as well. I think western (lol and Australia) marketing thought Sally should represent a female icon over Amy in Sega's hayday of miss-localizing everything.

If I remember correctly Sally was in a stage show (which no footage exist of in full apparently) at the park.

Yeah, the western Sega branches had this weird thing for pushing the cartoon characters and elements, especially Sally, sometimes to the detriment of the game characters. Remember Amy's infamous name change to Princess Sally? Probably the same mentality that forced the AoStH Robotnik design into the western box arts and Sonic the Comic.

Google isn't helping me. Either it's beyond Google's reach, or it's fake.

I'm a bit sceptical too ... but if this happens to be true... someone will have to rewrite history...

I'm not sure where that person got their information, but I think we all know Sonic was in fact based off of Chef Sonny Porcupine back in the '80s, who was a mascot for Orange Quasi, a long forgotten Swedish company that tried making food fun with a mascot before characters like Trix the Rabbit made him look inferior and they retired the character shortly before bankruptcy.

It was part of The Sega Scourge's April Fools video that someone probably took seriously:

I'm finding all sorts of useless bits of information just by making comparison pages on the wiki. Like:

Posted Image Posted Image

the "connector" tiles when the blue tubes insersect each other in Chemical Plant Zone is slightly too high in the Nick Arcade prototype!

Posted Image
Two player mode uses the single player spawn points for Tails. Which means player 2 always starts with a disadvantage!

Posted Image Posted Image
The light-up trees are smaller in the final game!

Red pixels in Genocide City Zone!

What a world we live in.

I think I'd already spotted that first one but the others are all new to me. Hah!

Is it that the light up trees are smaller......or that the platforms they're on are taller?

I don't see the trees through the invisible tiles in the chunks.
