Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog - Reception - Netflix

Sonic the Hedgehog initially ranked #9 in its time slot with a 5.2 rating, an estimated 4.8 million viewers. Mark Bozon of IGN criticized the show as dated, considering it “so bad, it's good.” Writing for DVD Talk, Todd Douglass Jr. remarked that Sonic didn't stand the test of time. Overall, he considered it to be of low quality, although he found the stories “Ultra Sonic” and “Blast to the Past” to be “the crème of the crop.” Luke Owen of Flickering Myth felt Sonic aged better than is often supposed, praising its well-executed characterizations and treatment of war, although he considered Antoine to be “one of the worst characters committed to a cartoon series.” GamesRadar listed the show as one of “the worst things to happen to Sonic.” It criticized its plot and characters as “unwanted”. Former Escapist journalist Bob Chipman credited the series with providing a viably menacing take on Doctor Robotnik, and an engaging narrative. Bob Mackey of USgamer wrote that the cartoon's writing didn't live up to its intriguing premise. In particular, he argued that the Antoine character perpetrated negative French stereotypes. Meanwhile, Doug Walker of Channel Awesome considered the series “a great show,” and better than he remembered. He praised it for “literally taking nothing and turning it into something,” with a strong story and good character development, as well as a subtle environmental message.
