As one of the most recognizable video game characters ever made, Sonic The Hedgehog first made his debut in his own eponymous title — which was released for the Sega Genesis in 1991. Sega requested for a character mascot to compete with Nintendo’s own Mario, and the result was a blue hedgehog who could run really fast and dedicated himself to freeing his friends who were turned into robots by the evil scientist Dr. Ivo Robotnik. The game would become a critical and financial success, spawning numerous sequels, spin-offs, and even a live-action theatrical film that was released in early 2020 with Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic and Jim Carrey as Robotnik. A sequel to that movie is currently in post-production, and is scheduled for release on April next year.
