|ABC | Season Premiere Date: January 7, 1995|
The first season was an unconventional mix of cartoon characters and a grim setting. Characters were developed and mature themes were explored. The second season, on the other hand, lightened the tone considerably, emphasizing the more comedic aspects of the show and toning down the series' darkness considerably. The show ultimately ended on a cliffhanger after only two seasons due to underachieving ratings. However, this was not the end of the SatAM.
The series developed a cult following over the years resulting in countless fan fiction stories and discussion that kept show alive several years after it had been cancelled. Additionally, the Archie comic book adaptation of the "Sonic" character began to modify itself to more closely resemble the SatAM series and remained in publishing ten years after the show had been cancelled. Furthermore, the SatAM's influence was felt in additional Sonic adventures with various elements of the series being included in the "Sonic Christmas Blast!" special and the "Sonic Underground" series. The SatAM is generally agreed to be the most popular of the American-made "Sonic" cartoons.
