Sonic has had a pretty good run of animated series, having racked up four cartoons so far--two that ran simultaneously in the 90s. The blue hedgehog is getting ready for yet another return to the small screen, with a new series called Sonic Boom that will launch in fall of 2014.
The CG-animated series marks a first for the character. It will center on Sonic and Tails fighting against Dr. Eggman, along with secondary characters like Knuckles and Rose. The initial run includes 52 episodes at 11 minutes each, co-produced by Sega and Genao Productions. It will air on Cartoon Network in the US. So far, Sega has only released a teaser image (above).
"Sonic is the star of the Sega universe and the stage is now set for him to shine like never before," said Sonic chief content officer Hiroyuki Miyazaki, in the announcement. "By teaming up with world-class partners in television animation like Cartoon Network, Genao Productions, and GULLI, we're ensuring that the Sonic legacy will be introduced to a new generation of children across the globe."
