Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM is coming back to DVD this September for $19.99

Via Sonic Stadium comes the news that the Saturday morning Sonic the Hedgehog series, often referred to as Sonic SatAM, is returning to DVD. The series debuted in 1993 and had a handful of VHS releases, but it wasn’t until 2007 that Shout! Factory released a complete series DVD set complete with several bonus features and cover art from franchise icon Ken Penders. The set has long been out of print, selling for well over $100, so fans should be pleased to see it returning to DVD albeit with some downsides.

Released by NCircle, the 26 episodes will be spread over two discs, as opposed to the original four, and will not feature any bonus materials. Additionally, the set has some pretty ugly cover art. Still, with a $19.99 price point it’s a great way to get your hands on the series. The DVD is set for a September 19, 2023 release.

    I will buy this. But it need to be blu ray too!

    It needs the bonus materials too. Ben Hurst and Jaleel White were in the bonus stuff. It had the storyboards for the original unused intro and even the pilot. The menus were cool too!

    I like how the box art uses season 1 Sonic, Tails, Bunnie, Sally, and Rotor but also the season 2 Antoine that nobody likes. lol

    Don’t forget that NCircle Entertainment also re-released the 1999 cartoon “Sonic Underground” on the same year. The Complete Series of “Underground” was released on July 25, 2023 for $24.99.

    The photo of the back cover contains the wrong synopsis; that said synopsis is most likely from “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog”. The corrected synopsis states the following:

    “On the planet Mobius, the wicked Dr. Robotnik has taken over the Kingdom of Acorn and enslaved its citizens. But a small band of Freedom Fighters led by Sonic the Hedgehog and Princess Sally Acorn are determined to defeat Robotnik. Joined by Rotor, Ant, Bunnie, Dulcy, and Sonic’s trusty best friend Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic and his Freedom Fighters thwart Robotnik again and again in their struggle to free Mobius in this fast-paced, exciting animated series!”

    While it’s nice to see SatAM get a new DVD release (as a way to make up for IDW not using the Freedom Fighters due to Sega not allowing them for the time being), the artwork is not good compared to the Shout Factory set (which used Ken Penders art. Maybe Ken asked for too much money for his art to be reused? Also, the Shout set did have some fanart used for inside the two cases, so maybe that is also going to cause some legal issues to use again?)

    But the back of the box is the worst, as it basically has the description of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, the other Sonic cartoon from 1993, especially since it calls Dr. Robotnik comedically despicable.
