From Cool ape. Lost the most recent file so I had to redo some stuff. Immediatly fixed up a few sketches that didn't work well and added a bonus joke. Thanks to ultra for the suggestions.

Part 2:
A knuckles production: Nothing to do with SATam but little jab at Sonic triple trouble. Hey, it's still 90's Sonic. Can't believe I didn't make this observation back when I did the full Triple trouble parody.

Sonic's solution to problems: I know what you're saying. Roger, the sketch was really boring and predictable. Well yeah, that's the point. That's exactly how it feels to watch these "action scenes" in Season 1. This is a typical cartoon issue, most episodes only have room for one real action scene, at the climax. Every other problem the heroes encounter is just a pointless encounter to set up a commercial cliffhanger.
As a result, they spent a full 1 minute showing us how desperate and scary the situation is , and after the commercial is over, we see the hero deal with the problem in 10 seconds.
You might not notice it when you watch only one episode a week, with the commercials included, but watch several episodes in one sitting without interuptions, and you notice how often we get a "Oh no! A MONSTER!!" sequence, ending with Sonic just shrugging and running off. Sure, running is Sonic's thing, and the strategy always works, so I can't blame him.
But why Robotnik always designs deathtraps that can only be beaten by running really fast really baffles me. I think there's 2 episodes where Robotnik specifically designed a trap that only works when Sonic runs, including a rocketlauncher that always hits Sonic as soon as he runs. Of course he never used it after it worked perfectly for one episode. And now, right up at the big final confrontation in the final episode, Robontik always has traps that Sonic can defeat by running fast. Urghh..
The big epic showdown of Robotnik I've been looking forward since episode 1, and it ends up being a stupid tube where Sonic just runs away from.

Rotor is awesome: He is.

The other freedom fighters: Hey, remember when I said season 1 had great use of red shirts? Well, Season 2 doesn't.
I really HATE the final episode of SAT am. And I'm not referring to the cliffhanger. The whole episode sucks. After building the other freedom fighters like Arie and the wolves up for several episodes, they're immediatly arrested, powerhouse characters like Bunny barely have a cameo, Robotnik's final showdown is laughable, the climax with the powerstone is confusing, not to mention painfull deus ex machina ish. Ghah. But hey, at least there's plenty of WACKY and HILARIOUS Antoine antics. Cause we didn't get enough of that.

Oh no, Swatbots!: Our friends the swatbots again. This one confused me as hell when I was 10 years old. Which was back in season 1, let alone how painfull this trope is in season 2.
One moment we see Sonic destroy 500 swatbots with one lame pun, the next moment they're all " OMG SWATBOTS WE MUST RUN!!!!"
Why? I just saw Sonic destroy 50 swatbots by just holding up a mirror. Do it again! In season 2, Sonic can turn into a giant tornado to take out entire armies of the damn things. And I'm still supposed to be on the edge of my seat if a single Swatbot politely asks Sonic to surrender himself for 10 minutes straight?

What if Robotnik and his Swatbots were more like Hitler and his Nazi empire, like he was trying to establish an Aryan empire, and the Swatbots just simply tortured brutally any Freedom Fighter they saw?

Hm? That would explain why he's so ineffectual and everyone can just waltz into Hitler's throneroom?

But would it be better if Robotnik was exactly like Hitler except in looks?

Nah, while I like a dark Robotnik, he always has at least a bit of a clown in him. GOing full angry Hitler is a bit too far.
Altoguh I suppose Sonic SATam pulled it off.
Especially now there's more people associating Sonic with kiddy cartoons again, he needs at least a bit of goofyness.
Like Batman's the joker. Still threatening and an intense villain, but with some sillyness mixed in.

:icondrrobotnikplz: You now know the real reason I'm like this so often. I'm constantly depressed that I'm one of the only partly decent things about this horrendous show. Everyday I was surrounded by annoying canon foreigners who made it look less and less like a show about the Sonic games. I'd down a few Jack Daniels' and cry myself to sleep after each day of filming. Almost 5 years later Sonic Adventure was released and I was so happy, but then the games after it got progressively more depressing. I told myself "God dammit, it's Sonic SatAM all over again.", and wished I owned Archie Comics so that I could fire Ian Flynn.

Interesting, I thought that SATaM was in fact the only incarnation of Sonic where it was really really difficult to fight robots. In anime, he just smashes them with his bare hands (or body), and most of the time even without power up. And in games, the robots are complete joke. They are even designed to be joke. And they are designed to shoot after like 5 seconds delay after spotting Sonic. Not to mentions that the actual projectile is so slow the you can walk away from it.
In SATaM, I have never seen Sonic to destroy a robot by his superhuman strength. I think he did not have such power in these cartoons. Without power-up, all he could do was run fast, but he was avoiding the contact and never actually hit them as far as I remember.
And now you make animation about how easy is to destroy them? I am confused, muaaaaaah!!!
