Hello, and welcome to FuckYeaSonic - the place where Sonic the Hedgehog content flows like honeyed wine on Mount Olympus. We're celebrating over four years of running this tumblelog, devoted to a video game franchise that's now, yes, twenty three years old. And still going strong, with video games, comics, TV shows, merchandise, and yearly events that run through countries like the UK, the USA, and Japan, all complete with even more brand spanking new Sonic stuff.
FuckYeaSonic mostly focuses on the video game series, but Sonic X, Archie Sonic, Sonic the Comic, Sonic Boom, the Sonic OVA, and various Sonic manga are also represented. We deal primarily with screenshots, music, gifs, comic scans, official artwork, magazine scans, concept art, game development, advertising, game secrets, news, merchandise, and box art, with a smaller smattering of fan art.
Be sure to check the "Other Blogs" page for more Sonic goodness.

~Screenshot from the scrapped Sonic-16 (not official title). The game was cancelled by Yuji Naka because of its slow-running demo, but was meant to tie in to the Sonic the Hedgehog TV series, being more story-driven than its predecessors. One developer of Sonic X-Treme claims that Sonic-16 was another of the former’s developmental stages~

In the scrapped Sonic Mars, the end of each level was to be celebrated with a cutscene between Sonic and the character he finds in that level. His celebration with Knuckles involved the two spin-dashing each other until fireworks erupted around them.

~One of many Metal Sonic designs from the scrapped Sonic X-Treme, this boss fight was the furthest along in terms of development~
In the scrapped Sonic Mars, it was planned that Sonic would rescue each character, and Sonic and the rescued character would have an end-of-zone animation together. When Sonic rescues Antoine, Antoine apparently tries to high-five him, but trips.
