Ask Dr. Robotnik 85 by FractiousLemon Ask Dr. Robotnik 85 by FractiousLemon

I'm not sure what will excite people more about this post: The obvious sexual tension between Dr. X and Professor Misato, or the triumphant return of Dr. Robotnik.

I think I've probably destroyed the brains of 99% of my followers either way.

Wow, haven't seen those! I knew that early in development, the cartoon was meant to be much sillier with dark undertones and differences in opinion led to the two very different cartoons existing, but that artwork does bring a few things into perspective. I always assumed it was another idea that they just kind of slapped Sonic and Eggman into and that seems about right.

It would certainly explain why SatAM was so very different from any other sonic adaptation (except for Underground, which was originally supposed to be a SatAM revival anyway)
I also find it fascinating how the motive of Sonic having a human love-interest keeps re-surfacing throughout the history of the franchise

Actually SatAM was based on the comics. That's an obvious reason for it to be different if you ask me.

Seems a bit off for show based on the comic to look so different. I'm seriously wondering if the producers had even read the comic before making the show.

actually, the comic was based, or rather heavily influenced of the show

Umm no, you have that backwards. The comic started in September '92, SatAM started in November '93. I clearly remember a issue of the comic advertising the show's debut well after the comic had started. There were certain elements of the show adapted into the comic, but the comic adapted elements of AoStH (Mostly Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts far as I can recall) as well... there was also quite sadly, a single comic involving the alternate universe of Sonic Underground(while it was simple enough to composite the canons of the comic and AoStH (aside from the presence of humans, but that wasn't a detail that had been established in the comic canon at the time IIRC) Sonic Underground's three sonics required an alternate universe (there was also a possible future where Sonic has three kids, with one of them also being named Manic apparently)).

I might not be too up to date with the comics, but I know plenty about the first 150 or so issues. How much actual research on the subject have you done?

You pretty much pointed it out yourself however 
The early issues adapted AoStH, NOT SatAM 

Only once SatAM came out, did they start emulating the series 

Also, this is a very early development stage 
Shows tend to be in development for years, before they come even close to a pilot 
Which would means that these concepts are older than the comic

You again have things sort of backwards.

The comics had all of the same characters as SatAM from the get-go. AoStH did not have these characters at all aside from of course, Sonic, Tails and Robotnik.

AoStH may have started the same year, but they didn't actually add the SSSS characters until issue #2, and robotnik had a distinct lack of rolling rs (though I suppose they didn't want to bother emphasising Baldry's portrayal of the character?). There were 3 issues including #0 (and not including the so called issue "#1/4" as a whole comic) proceeding #2 one that had all of the characters SatAM used.

Additionally, only from issue #1 onwards were the comics (incredibly loosely) based on the AoStH cartoon.

You are however correct in saying that the comic was based on AoStH, but that's literally the only important detail you are correct about (though they did bring in the wolf pack characters (and Robotnik's Cluck I think was introduced in SatAM first, not sure...) from the cartoon at some point, the canonicity of the cartoon to the comics is incredibly dubious, and unlike AoStH, both had actual continuity).

For the record: Princess Sally (oddly in her pink fur appearance seen only in issue #0) and Swatbots (which looked like this img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… making the Sonic Underground ones look legit by comparison) did appear in AoStH, but only in a christmas special that also happened to be the final episode.

All things considered, I think those designs would have been actually used in AoStH had it continued...

I really have to wonder what Discord and Celestia are doing during all this... >_> Well, one of them is probably eating popcorn, and the other is... likely just broken... kinda like Pinkie Pie's brain awhile back...

Celestia is sighing "It's only a week-long crossover. It'll all be over soon and nobody will have any memory of it all." Discord is eating snow cones made of sheet metal.

He's not a robot. Well, Dr. Eggman was a robot Robotnik from another universe in the comics before the whole super genesis wave incident...
