====Part 1====

====Synopsis====
Sonic is running through [[Robotropolis (Archie)|Robotropolis]] when he overhears Dr. Robotnik bragging about having "the bomb", which will "kill every last one of them". Panicked, Sonic rushes back to [[Knothole Village (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Knothole]] to tell the rest of the [[Freedom Fighters (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Freedom Fighters]] (notably [[Sally Acorn (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Sally]] and [[Rotor Walrus|Boomer]]). They hatch a plan to distract Robotnik by projecting a movie of them protesting on a wall to fool the doctor and his [[SWATbot (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|SWATbot]].

=====Part 1=====
  +
[[Sally Acorn (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Sally]] and [[Rotor Walrus|Boomer]] are watching [[Sonic the Hedgehog (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Sonic]] run back to [[Knothole Village (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Knothole]] on a monitor, but he arrives before the monitor shows he's back. Sonic explains to them why he ran back so fast. While running through [[Robotropolis (Archie)|Robotropolis]] and messing with some [[SWATbot (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|SWATbot]], he overheard [[Doctor Ivo Robotnik (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Dr. Robotnik]] bragging about having "the bomb", which will "kill every last one of them". The trio assumes it's a nuclear bomb and image what [[Mobius (Archie)|Mobius]] would be like after the doctor uses it. Sonic then comes up with an idea.
   
====Part 2====
+
A short while later at Robotnik HQ, a SWATbot shows Robotnik the [[Knothole Freedom Fighters|Freedom Fighters]] are protesting in Robotropolis. Robotnik calls a squadron of SWATbots to ambush them. As they run at them, they run right into a wall, destroying the SWATbots and leaving Robotnick in a daze. The panel show Sally using a projector on the wall playing a movie of them protesting. Sally, Rotor, and Sonic then go into Robotnik HQ.
Boomer then comes in dressed up as Robotnik to get "the bomb", but then [[Crabmeat (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Crabmeat]] requests his presence in another room. Sonic and Sally hear fighting coming from the next room, but what looks like Boomer comes out with "the bomb" and says they should go back to Knothole. Suddenly, Robotnik comes in, claiming he is the real Boomer, followed by tons of rubber masks flying through the air. Sonic finally gets tired of the arguing and pulls all of the costumes off using his speed at once. They get the real Boomer, dizzy and confused, and take "the bomb" back to Knothole, where they discover it is a bug-repellent device dubbed as "The Bomb". Dr. Robotnik and Crabmeat are seen back at Robotropolis by his pantry, still remaining full of bugs, as he scowls and says "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!".

Boomer gets dressed up as Robotnik to get "the bomb". As Sonic and Sally wait in another room, Rotor goes into HQ and tells [[Crabmeat (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Crabmeat]] to get him "the bomb". Later, Crabmeat requests his presence in another room. Sonic and Sally hear fighting coming from the next room, but what looks like Boomer comes out with "the bomb" and says they should go back to Knothole. Suddenly, Robotnik comes in, claiming he is the real Boomer by taking off a mask. Boomer takes off a mask revealing he's Robotnik. This is followed by tons of rubber masks flying through the air. Sonic finally gets tired of the arguing and pulls all of the costumes off at once using his speed.

====Synopsis====
Boomer's camera picks up traces of Robotnik making deep inroads into the southern sector of Mobius. Sonic, accompanied by Boomer, go up and out of Knothole to scope it out. After speeding through Mobius (along with Boomer on roller skates, using a rope tied to Sonic), they find a southern-accented rabbit being captured and taken into a portable robot-maker. Sonic tries to go save the day, but is pulled back by Boomer, who is still attached to him. Upon being untied, Sonic then gets up and goes in for the save, but the rabbit is still being robotized, half-way through progress. Sonic shuts down the machine and the rabbit falls unconscious. Despite Boomer's reservations about Robotnik being able to use her robotic parts to trace them to Knothole, Sonic decides to take the rabbit with them for medical treatment.

Suddenly, [[Antoine D'Coolette (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Antoine]] bursts through, panicking. He tells them of a giant Burrowbot heading towards the [[Great Forest]] in order to seek out Knothole. Sonic and Bunnie go up the secret entrance to fight it, where Sonic is nearly crushed by the Burrowbot's treads. Bunnie pulls him down just in time, and Sonic confronts the giant Badnik. However, the Badnik uses a ray to freeze Sonic in place, and attempts to roll over him with his treads. However, he finds himself being flipped upside-down, courtesy of Bunnie using her super strength arm (due to incomplete robotization). Sonic thanked Bunnie and creates a trench around the paralyzed Burrowbot, and jams it into the ground. In the aftermath, Bunnie is welcomed into the Freedom Fighter group.

Sonic skids into Knothole after Sally requests his presence. Boomer shows Sonic his camera picked up traces of Robotnik making deep inroads into the southern sector of Mobius.

Sonic shuts down the machine and the rabbit falls unconscious. Despite Boomer's reservations about Robotnik being able to use her robotic parts to trace them to Knothole, Sonic decides to take the rabbit with them for medical treatment.

Part TwoEdit

Sonic and Boomer take the now half-robotizied rabbit back to Knothole, where she regains consciousness and introduces herself as "Bunnie Rabbot", and proves herself worthy of being a Freedom Fighter by picking up Sally on her throne. She drops her down when she realizes who Sally. Bunnie apologizes and asks to be Sally's hairdresser. Sally agrees and invites her to be a freedom fighter as well. Suddenly, Antoine bursts through, panicking. He tells them of a giant Burrowbot heading towards the Great Forest in order to seek out Knothole.

Sonic and Bunnie go up the secret entrance to fight it, where Sonic is nearly crushed by the Burrowbot's treads. Bunnie pulls him down just in time, and Sonic confronts the giant Badnik. However, the Badnik uses a ray to freeze Sonic in place, and attempts to roll over him with his treads. However, the robot finds himself being flipped upside-down, courtesy of Bunnie using her super strength arm (due to incomplete robotization). Sonic thanks Bunnie and creates a trench around the paralyzed Burrobot, and jams it into the ground. In the aftermath, Bunnie is welcomed into the Freedom Fighter group.
