On the planet Mobius, the woodland creatures were constantly in a state of danger. Their habitat was filled with spikes, bottomless pits, and metal rings floating all over the place. Then, one day, a noble scientist by the name of Dr. Robotnik came to the planet and decided to do something about it. He built robotic suits for each and every one of the creatures and large pod-like housing to protect them. Robotnik was hailed as a hero to all animal kind, except for one rabblerousing blue hedgehog who loved to get in his hair.
