Sonic Christmas Blast was an interesting combination of two Sonic the Hedgehog shows: the self-titled Sonic the Hedgehog and The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. The story is your typical cheesy Christmas story: Santa Claus has announced his retirement, and his replacement is...the evil Dr. Robotnik?? Say it isn't so! Instead of giving gifts, Robotnik expects to get them, and Sonic the Hedgehog and his buddy Tails aren't cool with that. Join them as they race to save Christmas from the maniacal doctor!
Needless to say, the story isn't particularly original. If you've seen any other Christmas special over the years, you know exactly what to expect...just with Sonic characters. It's nothing spectacular, but if you're a Sonic completist like I am, chances are you'll want to pick this up.
Interestingly, the short half-hour feature isn't all one can expect from this DVD release. Included are three episodes from the third Sonic cartoon series Sonic Underground, including Three Hedgehogs and a Baby, The Price of Freedom, and Mummy Dearest. One would imagine they'd pad the release with some Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog episodes, as the special is more based on it than any of the other shows. But at least it adds a little bit of value to the package.
