Sonic Boom is a CG-animated series starring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose battling Sonic's arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman. The initial order is for 52 eleven-minute episodes co-produced by SEGA of America Inc. and Genao Productions.
"Sonic is the star of the SEGA universe and the stage is now set for him to shine like never before. 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,” said Hiroyuki Miyazaki, SEGA’s Chief Content Officer for Sonic.
The first animation appearance for Sonic occurred in 1993 with dual series in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog which were comedic and more dramatic spins on the character. This was followed by Sonic Underground in 1999 and then Sonic X in 2003.
