In an accidental tease, Netflix revealed it is about to add everyone's favourite hedgehog to its list of content. According to a tweet sent out and quickly deleted, Sonic is about to get a sparkling new animated 3D show on the small screen. The tweet (see below) contained a hype-inducing list of iconic Sonic the Hedgehog features and a slightly-creepy Netflix-themed Sonic logo (see it above). 

We're not suggesting that this exact iteration of Sonic is to be featured in the show or that it will be the official logo – he is red, after all. And the eyeball-less devil-like incarnation may not sit too well on a children's show. But there are some tells about the character from this image, which we'll go into in a minute. (Hopefully Netflix used our list of character design tips to help design it.)
