Sonic and Jack Frost: long lost brothers?

#1 Edited by Video_Game_King (36567 posts) -

This has been bothering me for a long time: Sonic and Jack Frost look exactly the same, and I don't know why. Don't believe me? Here:

Sonic the Hedgehog

That's too similar to be much of a coincidence. In fact, I'll list off the similarities to make it all official-like:

  • Short, pudgy bodies.
  • Blue/white color scheme.
  • Large heads, with definitive blue spikes.
  • A generically happy face.
  • Right hand on his hip, left hand waving a finger in a "Oh no you di'n't" manner.

It's scary how alike they are, especially since they're only about two years apart. Now I tried searching for some overlap between the credits of these games, but no luck. It doesn't help that Sonic was created largely in house. I've also tried searching around for cartoon character templates that might explain this, too, but that seems to make things worse. Plus that's the only one that I could find, because I don't know a lot about this sort of thing. Anybody got any ideas? IS THIS A CONSPIRACY!?
