Sonic the Hedgehog is getting his own episode of OK K.O! Let's Be Heroes


‘Let’s Meet Sonic’ airs August 4

OK K.O! Let’s Be Heroes is doing a crossover episode with Sonic the Hedgehog on August 4, and my goodness, just look at the little punk! I hope he channels some of that ’90s TV series energy.

The wacky Cartoon Network show is jam-packed with loving nods to video games and gaming culture in general, so I can only imagine how many references the new episode, “Let’s Meet Sonic,” will manage to fit in. Even just this short first-look footage out of San Diego Comic-Con has a few nostalgic riffs.

It’s also been confirmed that Roger Craig Smith and Colleen O’Shaughnessey are lending their familiar voices. The OK K.O.! Sonic and Tails special will debut on Sunday, August 4 at 4:45pm Eastern on Cartoon Network. If you have access to the Cartoon Network video app on iOS or Android, that’ll work too.

I don’t watch OK K.O.! (or much TV at all these days), but every clip I’ve seen has made me chuckle. If I had kids, this would be one of those shows that I, the ancient adult, would not-so-sneakily love.
