Sonic Mania Adventures animated series coming to YouTube

They made a vow, their mother will be found

The Sonic brand has had a weird love affair with animated TV series, seeing highs and lows for decades now, from the meme-riffic original show to the woefully “edgy” Sonic Underground. It looks like the spiky one and his chums are giving animation another try, only this time the hands of a proven team.

In the wake of recent news regarding Sonic Mania Plus and a new Sonic racer, it was also announced that a new, animated mini-series is en-route, put together by the same talented folk who created the animated sequences for last year’s Sonic Mania.

Sonic Mania Adventures will consist of five animated shorts starring Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. The episodes will be dialogue-free, relying only on music (by Mania’s Tee Lopes) and visuals to tell the story. The show will be hosted by YouTube, with the first episode expected to go live within the next month.

You can check out a sample below. I think it looks pretty good, and definitely better for not having hideous “cool dude” voices.
