|Manic giving a sample of his pickpocket skills, which he learned when having to fend for himself as a kid, before he met Sonic and Sonia.
Sonic Underground MPEG clip #4
Since this clip has more dialogue than usual, here is the
Well, well, Sophia! Looks like you belong to us.
Sonic Underground MPEG clip #5
This is one of the bigger MPEG files, a musical interlude showing
Sonia's dream of going to the Debutante Ball in the Royal Palace
(each episode contains one brief song or stage performance).
I put it here to show how much the over-use of computer effects
can ruin the flow of a story. Here is a summary of the 'dream
sequence' as it was originally described:
We start on a bandstand in the ballroom, where Sonic, Manic and Sonic are playing. Sonia leaves the stage and dances through the crowd, dances with Barnaby (the guy with the blond hair, for which Sonia has a serious crush), then dances with Sonic (who doesn't quite enjoy it, so she spins him away again).
Ok, and now watch the videoclip and tell me how much of that 'dream story' you would have been able to piece together on your own, with all those added effects and mixing of scenes. :)
Sonic Underground MPEG clip #6
Once again Robotnik is holding a race to lure Sonic into a trap.
In this small videoclip Sleet is morphing his partner Dingo into
someone who is able to take part in said race without anyone
Does this idea with the race sound familiar, and is anyone reminded of the "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" series when watching this clip? :)

|Here Manic tries using his drum set to break open a locked door with the sound waves, but instead only brings the ceiling down... almost.
