The heroic hedgehog is back! As told in an ancient prophecy, Sonic is reunited with his two siblings, Sonia and Manic, to form a band – Sonic Underground – using their electric guitar, keyboard, and drumset (which seamlessly transform into weapons during battle) to fight the evil Dr. Robotnik, all while searching for their mother, Queen Aleena Hedgehog. But there’s still one more problem: the queen doesn’t want to meet her children at the wrong time, thus altering the fate of her family – but only when the prophecy is fulfilled can the planet Mobius return to a world of peace and harmony!
Sonic Underground is the third animated series based on the popular Sega video game character, featuring Family Matters’ Jaleel White as the voice of Sonic and Sean Connery as the voice of Great-Grandfather Athair. Each of the 40 episodes in the series also featured a Sonic Underground song in music video form. Rock on with Prince Sonic, Princess Sonia, and Prince Manic as they travel to planet Mobodoon, elude captivity by the robotic hands of bounty hunters Sleet and Dingo, and battle ART – Dr. Robotnik’s most horrible henchman yet! Sonic Underground: Volume 1 will be available for the first time in a 3-DVD set on December 18, 2007 for $34.99 SRP.
