Sonic - Super Hedgehog (Соник - супер ёжик) was a Russian television show sponsored by Nissho Iwai and Mikrodin and produced by TPO Rost which featured popular Sega games for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System. It aired on from 14 November 1993 to 28 August 1994, on Russian TV station RTR (now known as Russia 1).
Each episode was 15 minutes long (except for 2 special episodes of 30 minutes each). In most of the episodes, three teams with two-person each, take part in the quiz. In the first round, the teams are asked a question. If the answer is correct, the team scores one point. There are 10 seconds to answer. The team that finished third is eliminated from the game and receives a consolation prize. In the second round, the teams play on Sega game consoles. The team that finished second is eliminated from the game. As part of the program, they receive a consolation prize and the winning team receives Sega consoles. In every episode, from time to time, there are advertisements promoting Sega consoles, with a slogan Volshebnyy mir. GBX.ru forum user skwax heard from former program participants that only Moscow residents were invited to the program. Agents / representatives of the program came to school and after school invited everyone to play on Sega consoles. The best ones were selected to participate in the program or invited as viewers. At the beginning, participants only played on Master System (it was the only available Sega console in Russia at the time) and from April 1994 also on Mega Drive (then it was released in that country).
Most programs have a different game theme. From the available clips we can find that they played, among others Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (Master System), Golden Axe Warrior (Master System), Land of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Master System), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Master System), Quartet (Master System), Cyber Shinobi (Master System), Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master (Mega Drive), Rambo III (Mega Drive), Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Master System), Aladdin (Mega Drive), Streets of Rage (Mega Drive), Herzog Zwei (Mega Drive), Altered Beast and many more.
At the end of episode 24, it is announced that on 2 May 1994, there will be a special episode of the music program Ne pristavay ko mne on the 4th channel. From the clips, it can be concluded that several Russian musicians, composers and music group leaders were supposed to play on the Mega Drive.
