Uncle Chuck's Treasure!

Part One

This issue begins with Tails offering Sonic to ride a seesaw he made. Before Sonic can ride it, Rotor joyfully leaps onto the seesaw and sends Tails into the ceiling. When Tails falls off of the ceiling, a treasure map made by Sonic's Uncle Chuck falls out with him. Sonic is happy to have found the treasure map, but Rotor, Tails and Sally explain that money has no value ever since Dr. Robotnik took over Mobius. However, Sonic states that the treasure could be something to defeat Robotnik, so Sonic and his friends go look for the treasure.

The treasure is in the Mobius Natural Park, where everyone expects it to be nice and green, but they find out it has turned into one of Robotnik's dumping sites. Sonic and his friends search for the treasure, and soon find an X right by one flower that managed to survive. Tails tries to water it, but is ambushed by Robotnik and his Badniks. Sonic and his friends quickly split-up and run from Robotnik.

Part Two

Things quickly go downhill for the Freedom Fighters as they are attacked by the Badniks. Tails is attacked by a Burrobot, but it accidentally rams into an acid barrel while trying to chase Sonic.

Two SWATbots walk off with Rotor, but are confused by Sonic when he imitates Robotnik's voice and commands them to walk to the right. The SWATbots foolishly walk into toxic slime and get stuck.

Sally is being chased by a Buzzbomber, but is quickly rescued by Sonic. She runs out of breath, but Sonic manages to keep her safe by forcing Buzzbomber to smash into a mountain, while the duo slide down an oil slick.

Soon, the Freedom Fighters dig up the treasure, but it is snatched by Robotnik. Sonic remembers that his Uncle Chuck buried nothing more than a bronze pair of sneakers, which have no value. Sonic and his friends rush back to Knothole while Robotnik rages over the "treasure", which are really Sonic's bronzed baby sneakers.

The Shadow Nose!

Sonic is preparing to box with somebody...his own shadow. He hits it with some left jabs, some body blows, a left-right combination, a hook to the body, and, lastly, a knockout uppercut. Being able to move faster than the speed of light, he can take shadow boxing to a whole new level, with his own shadow knocked out on the floor.

Details Are Sketchy!

Somebody is making a drawing while somebody else narrates it. He starts with a round head, followed by a black nose. The drawer draws it too big but corrects it. The drawer starts drawing round ears, but the narrator corrects him, as they are supposed to be pointy. He then starts on the eyes, but draws them too beady. He finishes up, as a damaged Crabmeat confirms the suspect of his injuries to the drawer, Robotnik, as Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sorceress in Distress

It's Halloween, and the Freedom Fighters all have unique costumes: Rotor is a poor report card, Tails is a two-tailed skunk, Sonic is a poison ivy bush, Antoine is a devil and Sally is a witch. Sally claims that she'll need a magic stick to be a witch, and demands to go to the Great Forest alone in search of a magical stick.

Once Sally finds one, she commands a rock to rise, and it does so. Little does she know, it's a rock stuck under an active geyser. Unknown to her, Robotnik is watching Sally, and goes head-over-heels for her without realizing that the "witch" is Sally Acorn. While Sally tries to make a log rise, Robotnik jumps out of a bush, giving her flowers (man-eating plants), chocolates (chocolate, with motor oil on the inside) and a love poem (which isn't all that good). Robotnik proposes to Sally, but she isn't sure, (the risk of saying no, will get her roboticized) so she's taken by Robotnik to Robotropolis.

Sonic has been watching Sally the whole time, and follows her to Robotropolis. Once he arrives there, Robotnik asks Sally to perform a magical power to prove if she's really a witch. At that point, Sonic makes his move, by going so fast while beating Robotnik, that he isn't even seen. Sonic rushes off with Sally back to the Great Forest and claims that he only wanted to protect her. Sally kisses Sonic on the cheek to show her appreciation, but hits him on the head with her stick for disobeying orders.

Princess Cruises

Antoine is trying to convince Sally to build a large naval fleet for the Freedom Fighters, Sally declines the offer. He tries to entice her more by saying they'll sail the seven seas of Mobius under the Crown of Acorn, which Sally still declines. Antoine continues on, saying that she'll be the inspiration of the future Mobius naval officers. Sally flames up and yells at Antoine, a big 'NO'. She marches off in a huff, leaving Antoine with his little canoe.
