    Observations
    0:08, I wonder how Orbot shivers? I don't need sleep, I need answers
    At 0:55, I guess Sonic is dead.
    2:07, It calls Knuckles a phantom, so will he have to drink A Ghost's Pumpkin Soup?
    2:11, Eat your heart out, "Tails Is Dead" Theorists
    2:59, Tails is just so cold hearted here. He acts as if he has no say in matters of his own bringing, casting Eggman away with his hand as if he is swatting a bug, a smug smile on his face, and a hint of sarcasm in his voice.
    3:32, Sonic Made A Good Future In Christmas Carol Round 1
    5:15, Left To Right : The Anti Thesis of Cinnamon Bun Silver, Angry Boi, Pog Tails, Boom!Sonic
    Fun Short, very meme-able, good narrator! Merry Christmas Sonic Retro! Although, if this is just a play by Orbot, I wonder if the Babylon Rouges were "In On It", and were the Flickys too? Cool to see the Youtube channel put stuff up like this.

    A minor nitpick,
    I think they should have written "Ivo Robotnik" on the tombstone, since that's his real name, didn't they officially recognize it at a certain point? At least, the surname.

    Eggman's sleepwear was a nice touch.

    Well, I'm glad I saw that, really nice minor treat to end the year :)
     
  6. I really liked the detail Silver is the Ghost of Christmas Future.

    Shadow should have been the Ghost of Christmas Past and Sonic the Present, though, as an allusion to the whole thing from 06 where Silver represented his future, Shadow fought to make sure the mistakes from the past weren't repeated, and Sonic's always living in the present. The Solaris fight even has dialogue that takes note of their era-centric outlooks on life. But I guess making any references to 06 is bad wholesale. :specialed:

    Not anywhere near the level of Chao in Space or Mania Adventures Episode 6, but it wasn't pretending to be. And I wasn't expecting them to do another Christmas video this year, so this was a cute little surprise.

    Merry Christmas, guys!

    Jack shit.
    Could have put the Eggman tombstone in the graveyard from Bayonetta.

    That would have been a nice nod.
     
  11. This brought so much joy to my cold and snow-filled morning!

    Some parts of the US are getting a lot of it as far as I know. My place had a ton until today, when it got warm and rained.
     
  14. Yeah here in Boone, NC we got several inches of snow. Enough to prevent me from driving to see my parents.

    All you people getting snow are lucky, it's been way too warm here. >_> Anyways I loved the short, not as good as Chao in Space like someone else mentioned but still enjoyable. For a bit I thought
    Eggman really would get redeemed but meh. Would have been out of character for him after all. xD

    Almost seemed like there would be a white Christmas, then rain/50 degree weather the night before melted most of it.

    And then the night after it got cold again and snowed again. Mother Nature is a cunt.

    Pretty good short.

    It was good but would have been better animated. I guess they were going for a storybook feel.
