The Sonic the Hedgehog and OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes episode, “Let’s Meet Sonic,” gets a new teaser clip to celebrate its debut later today.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes will be crossing over with Sonic the Hedgehog later today at 4:45pm ET/PT. The special episode was originally revealed in a recent announcement from Cartoon Network’s official Twitter account. And to celebrate, the official Sonic the Hedgehog account posted a brand new teaser clip of the upcoming episode:
The episode is titled “Let’s Meet Sonic,” and will see both Sonic the “fastest thing alive” Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower as they visit the plaza and team up with KO to save the day. This episode will also be available for viewing on the Cartoon Network app.
It’s pretty awesome to see how many references have been jammed packed into a minute long clip. I honestly can’t wait to find out how many more shoutouts, easter eggs, and callbacks the episode will feature. And judging from the quality of previous crossover episodes in this series, Sonic fans will be sure to be pleased.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is about a naive youngster named K.O. who aspires to be a superhero in a video game-inspired world set in Lakewood Plaza. He’s the newest employee at Gar’s Bodega, the go-to spot for hero supplies and a bonding place for K.O. and his co-workers/best friends, human Enid and alien Radicles.
Meanwhile on the Sonic the Hedgehog side of things, the latest bit of continuing news has been on the upcoming live-action adaptation. Recently the movie has been delayed to 2020 in order to allow the FX artists more time to rework Sonic’s design from scratch. The movie’s executive producer Tim Miller even weighed in on the design controversy. And for an opposing opinion, read our piece as to why the redesign was a mistake.
