Good show but bad music...

The show is pretty darn good. This is the 2nd best Sonic cartoon behind the much darker Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM. The only thing that I can't stand is the songs are usually terrible with some being simply okay. The show revolves around Robotnic (Eggman for those who don't know that they are the same) being a cruel dictator who upon hearing about a prophecy about his downfall sets out to kill the royal hedgehog triplets Sonic, Manic, and Sonia. The hedgehogs mother Queen Alaina separates them to protect them from harm and years later the hedgehog triplets reunite through the Oracle who made the prophecy and the music. Sonic is the fast one and is on the electric bass guitar, Sonia is the fighter and she's on the keyboard, and Manic is a kleptomaniac (their) who's skills at the five finger discount are equally matched by his drumming skills which also happen to cause the earth to shake. Unfortunately the show was cancelled before it finished telling it's story so I cannot recommend this to anyone who doesn't like an unfinished story...
