New Sonic CG Cartoon Series Announced

Sega has confirmed today that Sonic is returning to television in his first-ever CG animated series which is coming in Autumn 2014. The animated series will debut first on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on CANAL J and GULLI in France, with a global rollout to follow. The 52 eleven-minute episodes is co-produced by SEGA of America and Genao Productions. Creation of the series is being overseen by Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka.

“Sonic Boom is a character-driven comedy that leaves a trail of robot wreckage in its smoldering wake. The series centers on Sonic, his best friend and sidekick, Tails, their never-ending search for adventure, and their battles with Sonic’s arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman. Rounding out the ensemble are fan favorites Knuckles and Amy Rose, plus a rogue’s gallery of enemies—some familiar to Sonic fans and some brand-new.”
Hah, the comments on Sega's site don't sound too optimistic.
Well, these "episodes" are only 11 minutes long each. So they are short. Also, there were a lot of people who didn't like the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon from the 90's. The one with Jaleel White, who's most famous for playing Steve Urkel, as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog. So they are probably expecting this new animated show to be similar to that.
I truly hope Sonic, as a franchise, will soon be improved.
It had so much potential, but has worse and worse publicity every year.

A (good) Sonic animated movie would probably help the franchise get back on its feet for a long run.
