Logo for Sonic For Hire.

Sonic For Hire is a fan series aired for Machinima on February 13, 2011 and for Nintendo Video's Cocktail Hour of the Nintendo 3DS on October 20, 2013 created by Mike Parker (who also created Cartoon Fails and Kung Fu Karl) and Michael William at LowBrow Studios, Inc. The series is distributed by Machinima (on its Happy Hour block). It is as much fun as The Simpsons and more fun than Family Guy.


The animated shorts focus on Sonic the Hedgehog as he gets washed up and is looking for work with Miles "Tails" Prower, Doctor Eggman, Earthworm Jim, and Knuckles the Echidna. The crew face typical problems such as survival and being broke while also facing less typical problems such as starting a fire, the world falling apart, and games of Chicken.


Sonic is washed up and out of work. He needs cash fast and will do anything to pay the rent.

Is there anything Sonic won't do for a buck. Short answer: No.
