After finishing watching all the Sonic cartoons, mainly all the American Sonic shows made by DIC and even the Japanese Sonic Animes since this won’t cover Sonic Underground, I realized that these shows could be in continuity with each other. Just like I found out about the Nintendo Animated Universe that consists of the Super Mario Cartoons, The Legend of Zelda and Captain N, I will now do the same for Sonic.
As a kid I always thought of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog SATAM sharing the same universe. And why not? Both had the same voice actor, basically the same premise only executed a bit differently and both had the same personality, likes and dislikes for Sonic. There is no reason not to think they aren’t in the same universe besides the fact that one is a much lighter take on it. Counting much of the stuff the two shows shared wasn’t from the videogames so you can’t say it’s because of the source material, so it’s not crazy to think this.
