According to the bonus features on the new DVD release of the series, this cel is from the intro sequence as it was originally storyboarded and pitched. They even went so far as to animate this alternate intro. This original intro was subsequently changed and was never seen on the air. The most noticeable differences between this original intro and the final version are the art style, the shading and Sonic's position around the title (here he is seen on the viewer's right side facing left, while in the final version he sits on the viewer's left side and faces right). Sonic appears thinner here, while the finalized version features a much chubbier Sonic. This version resembles the video game design much more so than the final version as well.

Sonic the Hedgehog is an American animated television series that was created by DiC, and aired from September 18, 1993 to June 3, 1995 on ABC. In contrast to the comical Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog released almost simultaneously, this cartoon features a darker setting and deeper, more involved story lines. Also, it was based on the comic book series more than the game. To distinguish between the two series, fans typically refer to this as SatAM, because it was a Saturday morning cartoon, while Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog aired on weekdays in syndication. DiC was planing on making a third season of SatAM when ABC decided to pull the plug on the show because of low ratings (the show with the highest ratings at the time was Power Rangers) and also because the president of ABC at that time simply disliked the show.
