This news is not game related, however cartoons were a big part of my weekend as a child, as most were during the early 90s. If you played Nintendo or Sega, odds are that you also watched Saturday morning cartoons. Even before I started playing video games on Saturday, it was cartoons that I watched first. Some of them were video game related like Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokémon and Earthworm Jim. The news posting on Gizmodo goes into more depth.
The cartoon from the early 90s was paralleled with another Sonic TV series but featured a completely different style. I remember watching various episodes, mainly in the afternoon. It’s goofy, lighthearted and ran for over 60 episodes. More can found on the Wikipedia page.
This recent find by a member of the Sega Galaxy Board has seen four Sega shipping boxes taken home containing 20 unused and unopened PAL-Asian Mega Drive II consoles along with multiple copies of 18 different 16-bit classics – including Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage 2. Luckily enough for us, this new owner of this buried treasure has made it clear that he doesn’t have enough room or need for such vast quantities of Sega’s past and has begun selling the spares online. Those interested in getting their hands on a pristine Sega Mega Drive II will need to set aside 70 Euros, whilst the majority of untouched games will set you back 10 Euros a piece.
Surely there has to more consoles and games yet undiscovered in even weirder places …
