Official Solicitation[]

'Tis the season for giving gifts and good will to all-or in Dr. Eggmans' case a perfect opportunity to crush the hopes and dreams of children everywhere, ruin Sonics' reputation, and steal gobs of the funny green stuff (money to you and I ) all in time for the winter holidays. How could Eggman do this? With the help of Santa Claus of course!

Story One[]

"Bad Eggnog"

Christmas is just around the corner and Chris, Cream and everyone is very excited of the upcoming holiday. That is, everyone but Sonic. Sonic has a hard time believing in Santa, due to the fact that he can't understand how he gets around the world so fast. Sonic goes to the North Pole to find Santa and his workshop, but doesn't find anything there. He then goes back to the Thorndyke Mansion to tell everybody about what he just found. Just before Sonic is about to tell everyone, Chuck Thorndyke interrupts Sonic, take him into a hallway and tells him that Santa only appears on December 25th. Sonic, still not believing Chuck, decides to drop the argument. Soon, at the annual tree lighting ceremony Doctor Eggman intercepts the ceremony on a giant TV screen undercover as Santa and claims that he will only deliver Christmas gifts if the people of Station Square give him Sonic the Hedgehog. Going to Angel Island, looking for protection, he soon realizes that if he is captured by "Santa" then he could show that it is really Eggman. Decoe and Bocoe come dressed as Santa to take Sonic to the North Pole and Sonic tries to rip his beard off, but it doesn't budge. He then sits tight and flies in the sled away. As the sled goes off into the horizon, a bolt falls from a robotic reindeer and it is found by Chuck Thorndyke. As Sonic is at the North Pole he is told to go into a huge bag and then hears Eggman. He now knows this was a trap. Just as Sonic is about to be thrown into Eggman's North Pole base, Chuck Thorndyke and others arrive in a helicopter. Chuck then states that the real Santa is standing near the horizon. Tails then flies by tossing Sonic a ring. Sonic spindashes out of the bag and into Decoe and Bocoe, showing that it is Bocoe on Decoe's shoulders. Dr. Eggman escapes in his sled and Sonic decides to let him go until after the holidays. In Christmas morning, all of them receive presents from Santa.

Background Information[]

  • Bark the Polar Bear and Storm the Albatross both make a cameo appearence on the cover, as a plush toy and an action figure respectfully. Amigo, the main character from another one of SEGA's main video game series, Samba De Amigo, can also be seen.
  • Cream mentions that Santa may bring them a brand new Emerl. This is in reference to episode 46 of the Sonic X anime, in which the original Emerl is destroyed (ironically, it was Cream herself who was forced to destroy him).
  • This is the first of two issues where Todd Wahnish provides the artwork for the issue, who is notible for simply tracing over stock art and shots from the anime itself.
