12 Days of Sonic Retro Christmas 2011: Day 5

On the fifth day of Christmas, Retro gave to me…

…the Korean opening to Sonic Christmas Blast.

Now, I’m sure everyone here has seen the animated special Sonic Christmas Blast at least once in their life. Produced after Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the Saturday morning series ended, it is most definitely a continuation of the first, although the pink version of Princess Sally shows up. Sure, she doesn’t talk, but she shows up!

Originally named An X-Tremely Sonic Christmas, it was retitled to match the Sonic game that was actually coming out in 1996. And to be honest, it’s worth watching just because of how insane it is. How often do you get to see Robotnik dressed up as Santa, anyway? The video above is the intro to the special, but as you’ve probably come to notice, it’s in Korean. And while we don’t have a translation just yet, the lyrics definitely are about Sonic the Hedgehog. And Christmas.

    I know Korean, and the lyric has nothing to do with christmas. Just a 80’s style(although the show being aired in S.Korea during 90’s) expository theme tune also used on Korean dub of AoStH.

    I read this article today, and learnt of the existance of this Christmas special, only to see it the shops as a DVD christmas card combo for $1.00!!! Needless to say I bought it, and it was in english. If wanted, I could scan it up if you’r like cause it’s pretty interesting in it’s own right.
