    Basically this. It totally felt like a Sat. morning cartoon. And the best part is, you took all the best elements of each series and fused them together. You had the main canon, both classic and modern. You had a tad bit of SatAM and I loved the bumbling AoStH Robotnik in there.

    The way you portrayed Manic and Sonia was perfect btw. I need to ask though, it feels like you re-aged them, was Sonia the eldest and Manic the youngest in that? I actually thought it added to their characters more since they weren't treated like bland triplets. I really have to say, Sonia did have that older sister vibe going. And let me just say, the rest of the supporting cast was great. Shadow and Blaze were very well done. I especially loved the Sonic and Amy scenes. It seemed Amy's reactions were less childish than how she was portrayed in the main series/Sonic X. In fact, that bedroom scene felt almost like a gag out of goof troop or a show along those lines.

    Oh god, Manic is PERFECT in this. Heck, all the characters are.
    Except one little nitpick... Isn't Tails an orphan in canon?

    I'll watch this every Christmas as long as it's up, in fact I might even just download it and back it up to make sure I have it. Like others I was expecting something bad (nothing against anyone involved) and was quite pleasantly surprised. Good job to you guys who made this.

    Just awesome. :thumbsup:

    Eh. Fuck canon. This pretty much stuck its finger to canon, yet caressed it gently, telling it the changes it made were good. And, in fact, they were. Actually, Tails being a "single child" actually makes for more character development in my mind. (Unless of course you want to add a sibling. Heck, I don't care. I trust you two enough to make any canonical edits awesome.)
     
  7. Sonic and Tails acting like a married couple cracks me up

    ...and I will admit its slightly disturbing

    I'd love to see more like this in the future. It was a great little cartoon and it's awesome to see all the characters portrayed so well, through writing and voice acting. You really made them all shine, so great job!

    I second the re-done AOSTH Robotnik theme. That was THE highlight for me, strangely enough.

    Also the Sonia hair dryer bit was probably my favorite part of this. Some might not like the voice, but it matches the original closely.

    Overall very good job.

    Tails isn't an orphan in canon, there's never been a mention of any family at all. It was Sonic who found him as a baby in AoStH.

    I don't think this can count for any canon 'cept its own. this short takes parts of all universes (save for SX) and kind of mashes them together.

    Like a lot of people, I was expecting this to be a bit.... Droll. I was proven wrong. I thought it was fantastic and provided me with a few chuckles.

    Wonderful little video! I wasn't expecting such quality, to be honest. Loved it, loved how everyone was portayed, especially Shadow and Manic. Very Good, and please, do more like this!

    Well I'll be, he's right.

    Anyway, I found this to be most excellent. The story was amusing, as was Robotnik's antics, and the funniest scene, imo and now sat as my avatar, is the idea of Shadow in a chefs hat XD

    I look forward to similar things from you, if you do them :3

    Not to blow my own horn, but there isn't a thing about the canon Sonic series I don't know :v: Half the time I feel like I know more about it than SEGA do.

    However, at this point, Tails could be anything. Heck, all the characters could be orphans. Obviously Cream has a mum, and she's only two years younger than Tails.. I don't know, maybe we shouldn't look to much in to that. Unless foxes are knwon for eating their young!

    It was decent! The art was good, and most of the voices worked OK. You could certainly do worse than to make more stuff like this if you get the time! I guess if I had more/any real knowledge of the storyline side of the modern games and how the characters act therein, I would probably like it more and find it quite a lot funnier. I think I would side with Overlord on the hairdryer bit being one of the best.
