"Paying Homage to Sega!"
Screen: A Sonic X Cartoon
It was a typical day at the Planet
Express confrence room. Everyone was sitting around the table
talking, then Scruffy who was carrying a wooden box, and the
Professor walk in.
Fry (To Scruffy): Hey, Scruffy!
What's in the box?
Scruffy: Scruffy doesn't know these
things. Ask the Professor!
Prof. Farnsworth: Good news everyone!
Leela (standing up): What's the
Prof. Farnsworth: Today, you're going
to deliver that box of golden rings to the planet Mobius!
Fry (gasps in delight): Did I just
hear you right, Professor? (Jumping up and down in front of him).
Did you just say, Mobius?!
Prof. Fransworth: Yes, you babbling
idiot! I said Mobius!
Leela: What's on this 'Mobius', Fry?
You act like you've been there before.
Bender: What is on that planet,
anyway? Blackjack and hookers, I hope!
Fry: Something even better!
Zoidberg (walking up to Fry): Don't
keep Zoidberg in suspense! Tell us already!
Fry: The greatest video game character
of all time!
Amy: I hope you're not talking about
'Super Mario Brothers'. Besides, I'm way cuter than Peach!
Fry: It's Sonic the Hedgehog! And I
finally get to meet him! Living in the future is AWESOME!
Leela: Okay, let's go to Mobius and
deliver the rings! Then we'll let you meet this Sonic, Fry.
Fry: Better yet! I invite everyone to
Mobius to meet him!
Bender: Even you, Hermes!
Hermes (disgusted): I did have to work
to do....... Uhhh, okay!
Bender: C'mon everyone! Let's all go
to Mobius to meet skintube's favorite video game character!
Fry: His name is Sonic! Sonic the
Hedgehog! Whoo!!! I'm so excited!
Bender: Are you going to crap in your
Everyone gets on the PE Ship.
The PE Ship raced across space to reach
it's destination. While Leela was steering the ship, Fry was telling
everyone about his days as a Sonic fan.
Fry: When I moved out of my parents
house to go live with Michelle, they gave me a Sega Genesis as a
housewarming gift. And a bunch of Sonic games!
Zoidberg: Interesting! Please do go
Fry: Michelle only allowed me to play
on weekends. But I used to sneak up on Saturday mornings to watch
the Sonic cartoon!
Bender: Sonic had a cartoon? Didn't
know he was that popular! What exactly was the concept of this
Fry: It's basically a game of good vs
evil. Sonic has the power to run in really amazingly fast speeds!
He could do flips, and he could use his quills like a buzzsaw!
Bender: Evil? Cool! Who were the bad
Fry: An evil mad scientist named Dr.
Robotnik. He was also known as Eggman!
Amy: Spleesh! What a weird name.
Hermes (looking out a window): I'm not
hearing any of this! Never mind me.
Bender: Robotnik? What kind of evil
robots does he have?
Fry: Well, he kidnaps animal creatures
and turns them into robots...
Bender (shaking Fry): AND?! AND?!
Fry: He had an army of evil robots.
Bender (shaking Fry some more): Do
these robots do what they want to?
Fry: Uhhh, no, Bender. They're all
under Robotnik's control.
Bender (drops Fry): WHAT?!?!?!?!
Leela: We're almost there, so buckle
Everyone goes to their seats.
Prof. Farnsworth: Well, Fry, since you
say there's an evil villain in this planet, we'll need these!
Prof. Farnsworth shows them some laser
machine guns. The same ones they used when Fry, Bender, and Leela
were in the army.
Prof. Farnsworth: Take one when we get
Fry: Oh, boy! This is it! The moment
Bender: Evil robots with no free will!
HA! Once I get my hands on this Dr. Robotnik, I'll be down on him
like a buzzard on a gut wagon!
Amy: Spewww! Gross, Bender! Please,
calm down! We probably won't meet this villain. We'll just meet
Bender: Don't count on it, missy!
(mumbling under his breath): Evil robots with no free will!
Leela lands the ship on Mobius.
Everyone gets out with a laser machine gun in their hands. Once
they get out, they see a fortress, dark skies, and a big
Leela: So, Fry is this where Sonic
lives? I don't see him, anywhere.
Prof. Farnsworth: If you see something
that looks like an enemy, FIRE AT WILL!
Hermes: We will Professor.
Zoidberg (twirling the gun like a
baton): Hooray! I can twirl this thing like a baton!
Hermes (to Zoidberg): Why don't you do
us all a favor and point that thing to your head and pull the
trigger, you slimy barnicle?!
Amy (coughing): I sure feel sorry for
this Sonic! Look where he lives!
Leela (to Fry): Are you sure this is
where he lives? Because this looks to me like a place a villain
Fry (gasps in horror): Oh, my gosh! I
Fry: This isn't where Sonic lives!
This is where Robotnik lives! Robotropolis! It sure looks spookier
being here in person!
Bender (walks off): Welp, I'm outta
Leela: Where are you going, Bender?
Bender: To teach Robotnik a lesson!
Bender walks off to the fortress and
takes some climbling equipment out of his chest compartment that he
serectly stole from the PE ship when it landed. Bender soon starts
climbing Robotnik's fortress.
Leela: Okay, I say we hide the box of
golden rings, and go into this fortress ourselves!
Hermes (Offering to hide the box):
I'll do it! Always trust a buerocrat!
Fry: Why do we need to go into this
scary fortress, Leela?
Leela: You never know, maybe this
Sonic got captured. Don't worry, you'll get to meet him.
Fry: I hope so.
Amy: What about Bender?
Leela: Just let him do he wants.
Fry: I was really hoping to meet
Prof. Farnsworth: A mad scientist
trying to take over this own planet? Sounds serious! Perhaps we
should capture this Robotnik ourselves!
The PE Express Crew entered the
fortress, whilst Bender was still climbling up the fortress.
Everyone was all armed with the laser machine guns.
Fry: You know, Leela, you kind of
remind me of Princess Sally!
Leela: I'm sure I can accept your
complement if I knew what you were talking about.
Fry: She's Sonic's girlfriend and she
acts like you! She's way better than that Amy Rose!
Amy: There's an Amy in the game?
Just then a bunch of SWATBots stopped
SWATBots: Freeze! Halt! Intruders!
Leela: Everyone, shoot the robots!
Fry: Yeah, they have no free will, you
Everyone, even Zoidberg and Prof.
Farnsworth shot up the SWATBots with their laser machine guns and the
robots were all destroyed!
Hermes: I wish I could have some
robots like that on my side!
Zoidberg (plucking the wires from the
SWATBots and eating them): Mmmmm! What a tasty meal!
Supervillains sure know how to live!
Leela: Let's move on!
The PE Crew go inside an elevator, and
go to the second floor only to be stopped by more SWATBots.
SWATBots: Halt! Intruders!
Fry: Not again! (Cocking his laser
gun): You asked for it!
Fry kept cocking his gun as fast as he
could, then Prof. Farnsworth yelled at him as the SWATBots were about
to aim their lasers at them.
Prof. Farnsworth: Don't just stand
around like a bunch of goons, fire already!
Everyone cocked their laser machine
guns and fired at the SWATBots as they were destroyed. Zoidberg kept
eating the wires as often as he could. As Leela and the others were
about to move on, Zoidberg kept eating the wires sloppily, until
finally Leela had to drag him away.
Leela (dragging Zoidberg): OKay,
you've had enough you can eat! It's time to move on!
Zoidberg: But I'm poor! I gotta eat,
Fry: We know that! We're here to try
to find Sonic! And give him those golden rings! Plus, I'm going to
get his autograph!
Amy: Let's try the next floor! Maybe
Leela: Good idea, but this time we'll
take the stairs.
Prof. Farnsworth (Confused): Wha???
The shares? Geez, Leela whatever do you mean by that?
Leela: I said, the stairs, Professor.
Prof. Farnsworth: Oh, yes, yes, the
stairs of course!
Everyone found the nearest stairway,
and tried to stay out of sight of more SWATBots.
Fry (terrified as he was going up the
stairs): Hey, Leela, do you have the suspicion that we're being
Leela: Yes, I can say it's possible.
Amy: You're not scared, are you Fry?
Fry (mumbling): Scared! No! What!
Me! Of Course not! I'm too macho to be scared! I said this once
and I'll say it again, it's creepy being here in person I'll admit!
Leela: It takes a man to admit his
They all took the stairway to the third
floor. Then a Spy-Orb comes up from behind Fry.
Fry (making a face into the spy-orb):
Smile! You're on Candid Camera! Live from New York, it's Sat.....
When Fry was about to finish, Hermes
dragged him away up the stairs.
Hermes: We have no time for nonsense,
mon! Do you want to meet this Sonic or not!
Fry: Of course I want to meet him!
It's been a lifelong dream to meet a famous videogame superhero!
Meanwhile Bender was still climbing the
fortress walls. Then a Spy-Orb closed in on him!
Bender (Punching the Spy-Orb away):
Stay outta this, punk! This is between me, and the wannabe robot
On the top floor in the throne room,
there was Dr. Robotnik himself. Mumbling in frustration as he saw on
the view screen what the PE Crew were destroying to his robot armies
with their laser machine guns!
Robotnik: Well, I'll get to the bottom
of this (putting on a fedora): If my ain't Dr. Julian Ivo Robotnik!
Hey, Snively! Come on in here and take a look at this!
Snively (putting on a derby as he
walked in): You called, sir!
Robotnik: Duh! Of course I called!
Look at this viewscreen of these people! They claim to be from a
delivery service hence their spaceship that says, "Planet
Express". And this robot climbling up the fortress that acts
like he has it in for me! As you can see, no matter what punishment
I dish out they have these weapons that destroy them all!
Robotnik looked at the viewscreen as he
sees Fry and the gang shooting up SWATBots, CombatBots and whatever
comes their way.
Robotnik: These people and this robot
and his crab all claim to want to see the hedgehog! Wanna know what
Snively: What do you think? Sir?
Robotnik: I think these intruders are
really the Freedom Fighters in disguise! Like that one (Pointing to
Fry at the viewscreen): This one claims to be the hedgehog's
(sarcastically): Number one fan. I'll bet he's really the hedgehog
in disguise! I'll bet that robot is Knuckles! And that lady with
one eye and purple hair, that's Sally! You get the idea! You must
help me destroy them, Snively!
Snively (terrified): NO! I can't! I
can't take part of this mission!
Robotnik (screaming): WHY NOT!
Snively: We don't have proof that
they're the Freedom Fighters, sir!
Robotnik (screaming): SAYS WHO? I say
we destroy them! Because I think they really are the Freedom
Snively (voice breaking): I'm staying
out of this! (About to run away.)
Robotnik (grabs Snively by the shirt
collar): Are you a man, or a mouse?
Snively: Uhhh, squeak? squeak?
Robotnik (Drops Snively): Then get the
hell out of my sight! Go ahead! Chicken out! Who needs you,
anyway! Useless wimp!
Snively runs away crying.
Meanwhile the PE Crew were on the
Fry: Wow! This is so cool! This is
just like being in a Sonic game!
Leela: Yeah, we're really kicking ass
in Mobius I must admit!
Amy: I wonder how Bender's doing?
Fry: Yeah, I wonder if he settled his
score with Robotnik, yet!
Prof. Farnsworth: Good news, everyone!
Prof. Farnsworth (Pointing to an
elevator): I found an elevator that will lead us to the top floor!
Hopefully you'll meet your idol, Fry!
Fry: All right! Maybe Sonic's here
doing battle with Robotnik as we speak!
Leela: Or it's possible he got
kidnapped. Even superheroes get overpowered.
Fry and the others all boarded the
The elevator reached the top floor.
Leela advised everyone to stay together. Fry secretly wandered off
to the throne room to confront Robotnik.
Leela: Okay, is everyone together?
Hermes: Together as we'll ever be I
Prof. Farnsworth: Shhhh! (Elmer Fudd
like): Be vewy quiet! We're hunting evil robots!
Zoidberg: Zoidberg's lips are sealed!
Amy: Shhhh! Quiet!
As Leela and the others were talking
around the top floor, Amy tripped over a pipe, and fell into a trap
door without the others noticing.
Amy (falling): AHHHHHHHH!
Meanwhile in Robotnik's throne room, he
was unaware that Fry was sneaking up behind him with the laser
machine gun in his hands.
Fry: Freeze, Robotnik! (aims his laser
machine gun at Robotnik.)
Robotnik (turns to see Fry): And who
are you supposed to be?
Fry: Phillip J. Fry! Delivery Boy
Extrordinare from Earth! And Sonic the Hedgehog's number one fan!
And where is Sonic! Did you kidnap him?!
Robotnik: I don't believe you!
Fry: You better believe it, pal!
Because I ain't nothin' but the real thing, baby!
Robotnik (slapping the gun out of Fry's
hands): I think you're the hedgehog in disguise!
Fry (scared): Eeeep!
Robotnik: Now I got you, hedgehog!
(Starts pulling on Fry's face.)
Fry (muffled): HELP! ANYONE! I'M NOT
THE HEDGEHOG! I'M JUST AN OBSESSED FAN!
Robotnik: Prepare to meet your maker,
Fry (thinking): What would Sonic do in
a situation like this!
Suddenly out of the blue, Fry sucked
punched Robotnik in the eye causing him to let go of his face, then
Robotnik lay on the floor, and got up and got a bazooka out of
cushion of his throne.
Robotnik (Aiming the bazooka at Fry):
YOU SHALL PAY FOR THIS!!!!
Fry (running towards the doorway): Yoo
hoo! Robotnik! Nah-Nah!
Robotnik roars with anger as he was
running after Fry with the bazooka out of the throne room. Just then
Bender jumps in through the window expecting to see Robotnik.
Bender: Here I come, Robotnik! I'm
Then Bender notices Robotnik isn't
there and sees Fry getting chased by Robotnik in the doorway to the
Bender (running out of the throne
room): Opporunity knocks!
Meanwhile Amy fell through the trap
door that lead to another room on the second floor to the top. She
hears a nasally whiny voice talking to a Worker Bot.
Snively (To the Worker Bot): I don't
care about those people in the fortress! I'm not taking any part of
this! I refuse to! Talk to the big round guy about it, not me!
Worker Bot: Fine! Be that way about
it! (Leaves the room).
Amy sees Snively in the room pacing and
Snively (whining): I won't take part
of this! I won't! I refuse! I won't! I won't! I won't!
Amy (looking at Snively): Hi, little
Snively (sees Amy): *gasp!* Get away
Amy (gushing over Snively): Oh, my
thosh! You are so cute and handsome!
Snively: Stay away! You get away from
Amy: Once I introduce you to my
sorority sisters, they'll be so jealous! I got a cuter boyfriend
than they do!
Snively (running away screaming):
AHHHHHH! Somebody help me! Somebody stop this crazy girl!
Amy (running after Snively): You won't
get away that easily, cutie pie!
A huge chase endures on the top floor.
Everyone was running from one door to another. Fry is still getting
chased by Robotnik armed with a bazooka.....
Fry: Yoo hoo! Nah! Nah!
Robotnik: Why you dirty......!
Bender armed with a baseball bat...
Bender (coming out of a door armed with
a baseball bat): I'm gonna get that Dr. Robotnik! Evil robots with
no free will my ass!
Leela and the others shooting up
SWATBOTs: Freeze! Halt!
Leela: Halt this! Hee-ya! (karate
kicks the SWATBOTs causing them to break)
Prof. Farnsworth: Shoot them!
Leela, Hermes, Zoidberg, and the
Professor shoot the SWATBOTs until there were nothing but wires,
nuts, and bolts.
And Amy chasing Snively....
Snively (coming out of a door): Whew!
Amy (coming out of another door):
Cutie pie! Come give your girlfriend a big kiss!
Snively: (screams and goes into another
The chase continues on as so. In
between the chase Zoidberg comes out of the door balancing himself on
a beachball whilst imitating Curly. And SWATBOTs come out dressed
as a barbershop quartet, Worker and Combot Bots come out of the doors
as well dressed as clowns riding on unicycles, and a french poodle
dressed in a cape goes by on a scooter. Finally the chase ends as
Bender comes out of a door sees Robotnik coming out of one next to
Bender (with a baseball bat about to
clobber Robotnik): Dr. Robotnik!!!!
Robotnik (Calling out): YES!!!!
Finally Bender clobbers Robotnik on the
head with a baseball bat and the chase ends, and everyone meets
Bender in the middle of the hall expect Amy. The clobber on the head
caused Robotnik to drop the bazooka.
Leela: Whew! Okay, let's stop this
nonsense right now!
Robotnik (looking up at Bender): Who
Bender: Bite my shiny metal ass!
Robotnik! I'm Bender! An evil robot with free will, baby!
Fry: Yeah, Robotnik! What do you
think about that?!
Robotnik: Evil robots can't have free
will! They might revolt against me!
Bender clobbers Robotnik again with a
Hermes (To Robotnik): We are making a
citizen's arrest on you!
Prof. Farnsworth: Yes, indeed! Are
you aware of a charge called, "Attemptive Universal Domination"?
Robotnik: No, and I don't care!
Prof. Farnsworth: Let me explain.
It's a crime that evil megaolmaniacs like yourself try to take over
their own planet!
Leela (grabbing Robotnik and tying his
hands behind his back): You will come back to Earth with us where
you can stand trial for your crimes!
Fry: And for attemptive murder on
Sonic the Hedgehog! The greatest video game character who ever
Hermes: Where in blazes is Amy?
Amy (calling out): Right here, guys!
Amy was walking up to Fry and the gang
with Snively in tow. Amy had Snively tied with a rope from the chest
down to his waist and was walking him around like a dog on a leash.
Snively: Cut this out! Let me go! I
will never be your boyfriend! (Sees Robotnik apprehended): *gasp*!
Sir! They got you, too?!
Robotnik: Our lives are over, Snively.
Looks like we're both going to do some hard time!
Fry: You got that right! (Looks at
Snively): I don't know who you are, but I'm sure you're no better
Amy: Hey, don't be so mean to this
little cutie! (Makes kissy faces at Snively)
Leela: I think this hedgehog was too
lenient on you two! That will be a day at the beach compared what
we're going to do!
Robotnik and Snively both looked at
each other and gasped in fright. Just then Zoidberg comes out eating
wires from Robotnik's roboticizer.
Zoidberg: Is this an all you can eat
Robotnik (screaming): NOOOO!!!!! My
Then everyone boarded the PE Ship with
Robotnik and Snively apprehended and Fry threw out the box of golden
rings as the rocket took off for earth.
Fry (looking at the box as the ship
takes off): Too bad I didn't get to meet you, Sonic the Hedgehog. I
hope you like our box of golden rings!
Bender: Cheer up, meatwad! At least
we caught a wannabe robot scientist!
Fry: Yeah, I guess you're right.
There's always other times when I can meet Sonic!
Bender (To himself): Just wait until
everyone see what else I have in store for Robotnik! (laughs
Amy continued to flirt with Snively on
the ride back to earth.
Back on Earth at the Planet Express,
Robotnik and Snively were bound to chairs in the confrence room
awaiting their fate. Just then the Professor, Fry, Leela, Zoidberg,
Hermes, and Amy walked in.
Prof. Farnsworth: Good news, everyone!
(Looks at Robotnik and Snively): But not good news for you, two!
Robotnik and Snively gasped in horror.
Fry: We just got off the videophone
with Mayor Poopenmeyer!
Leela: And we told him how you both
were trying to take over your planet!
Hermes: Well, at least you won't go to
trial! Instead you both go directly to jail!
Zoidberg (walks up to Snively and
starts sucking his nose): What? There's no prize inside!
Snively (sounding more nasally): Let
Amy (slapping Zoidberg upside the
head): Leave my boyfriend, alone!
Zoidberg (runs away sobbing): Wahh!
Prof. Farnsworth: Anyway, the police
will come and escort you both to Albion!
Fry (laughing): They're going to get
sent to a women's prison!
Prof. Farnsworth: It used to be a
women's prison until the year 2526. Then it became a prison for evil
megalomaniacs who try to take over their planet! (Turns to
Robotnik): I hope you both enjoy a life sentence in Albion!
The doorbell rings and Leela goes to
answer it and it was Officer Smitty and URL.
Leela: Come on in, officers. The
megalomaniacs are over here.
Leela shows them to the confrence room
where Robotnik and Snively were.
Off. Smitty: Okay, Dr. Robotnik and
his Igor-like assissant! You're both under arrest for Attemptive
URL: And for trying to kill a funky
Off. Smitty and URL carried Robotnik
and Snively out the door.
Dr. Robotnik: YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE
LAST OF USSSS!!!! WE'LL BE BACK!!!!!!
Fry (To Amy): You didn't really like
that needle nosed guy, did you?
Amy: Spluh! Of course I didn't! I
pretended to fall in love with him so I can help you guys capture
them! Besides, I already have a boyfriend who's a lackey!
Just then Bender walks in.
Leela: Bender! Where have you been?
You just missed Dr. Robotnik get arrested!
Bender: Let's just say in about 48
hours, Dr. Robotnik will finally get what he deserves!
Fry: For making evil robots with no
48 Hours Later.......
Bender receives a video tape in the
mail and walks into the PE Building. Fry and the gang were watching
Bender (walking into the living room):
Good news, everyone!
Prof. Farnsworth: Hey, you heaping
helping of scrap metal! That's my line!
Fry: What on the video tape?
Bender: Robotnik getting his just
Leela: Haven't you already got your
revenge on him?
Bender (putting the video into the
VCR): Watch and see!
The video tape showed Robotnik and
Snively in blue jumpsuits chained together in a chain gang. Robotnik
was chopping rocks with a sledgehammer and Snively just stood there
and watched. Then the scene in the video shows the Robot Mafia in a
bulldozer about to drop a 16 ton weight on Robotnik and Snively.
Then it shows Clamps, Donbot, and Joey Mousepad releasing a lever
that dropped the 16 ton weight on both Robotnik and Snively. Fry and
Bender both cheer! And Zoidberg screams!
Zoidberg (screaming): I can't look!
Fry: Where did you get the money to
pay off the Robot Mafia?
Bender: I took some money out of
Zoidberg runs away crying.
Amy: I guess another villain will
probably take over Mobius now that Robotnik's gone.
Leela: Bender! You didn't! How could
you! Life in prison was good enough for them!
Fry: He's an evil robot with free
will, Leela! What do you expect?
Bender: Nobody messes with evil robots!
(walks out of the room and does a happy dance).
Fry: Anyway, I got an old Sega
Genesis from a flea market yesterday, anyone want to play some Sonic
Prof. Farnsworth: I would, but I'm
already in my pajamas. (Falls asleep).
Amy: Sure, that sounds like fun!
Leela: Yeah, sure! Let's all take the
rest of the day off and play some old video games!
Fry: Now you're talking!
And so Fry, Bender, Leela, and Amy all
played old Sonic games for Sega Genesis for the rest of the day.
Even though Fry never got to meet Sonic the Hedgehog, he can now
share his fond memories with his friends by playing the games.
