The Major TGIF Sitcom Star You Probably Didn’t Know Voiced Sonic The Hedgehog


According IMDb, Jaleel White of “Family Matters” was the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in several animated TV shows and specials, including “The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog”, “Sonic the Hedgehog”, “Sonic Underground” and “Sonic: Christmas Blast “. .” Considering the many times White has voiced Sonic, it’s somewhat surprising that he hasn’t been used in recent “Sonic” movies, but again, the creators may have wanted to bring in new talent since White hadn’t voiced Sonic since 1999. Yet when White was cast as Sonic in the previously mentioned shows and specials, he was proud of his success as Steve Urkel’s nerdy but lovable character.

In an interview with Geek Chic Elite, White reflects on his experiences with portraying the character of Sonic. “The voice acting was super cool, man,” he recalled. “It was a job that I didn’t necessarily want, only because it took time but they always need a name to sell something, not understanding that it is like that. When I was a kid, to sell Sonic on ABC Saturday morning, they used me to create a stream from Friday night.”

White also talked about what he thought was the best part of the voice acting. “Creativity is the fun part and the easy part, I can focus on a lot of creativity, I think I’ve done over 100 episodes of ‘Sonic the Hedgehog,'” he said. “Sonic fans are crazy but so awesome because again they appreciate it and I’m so grateful for that.” So if you happen to have watched any of these shows in the heyday of the 1990s, you have White to thank for your crippling addiction to chili dogs.
