Baffling Sonic Underground Coming To DVD

Sonic Underground DVD distributor Shout! Factory must be nearing the end of the pre-Pokemon library of Saturday morning cartoons featuring popular video game characters.  Captain N has been released, the various Super Mario cartoons are out there, The Legend of Zelda has even made an appearance, and now it's time for Sonic the Hedgehog's next DVD outing.  Sonic Underground is coming to DVD later this month in North America.  Hmm, Sonic Underground... I don't think I know that one.  What was that one about?

As told in an ancient prophecy, Sonic is reunited with his two siblings, Sonia and Manic, to form a band – Sonic Underground – using their electric guitar, keyboard, and drumset (which seamlessly transform into weapons during battle) to fight the evil Dr. Robotnik, all while searching for their mother, Queen Aleena Hedgehog. But there's still one more problem: the queen doesn't want to meet her children at the wrong time, thus altering the fate of her family – but only when the prophecy is fulfilled can the planet Mobius return to a world of peace and harmony!

Ah.  Hmm.  OK, if you say so, Shout! Factory.  I think I'll pass on this one.  I like my video gaming plots to be completely crazy, but one is just too far gone even for me.

Manic the Hedgehog?  Oy...
