Maurice is a character mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He was the grandfather of Sonic the Hedgehog, and thus the father of either Jules and Sir Charles Hedgehog or Bernadette Hedgehog.
Upon his birth, Sonic the Hedgehog was given Maurice's name as his middle name and his other grandfather's as his first name. However, he subsequently had his name legally changed to Sonic, bearing no ill will towards either of his grandfathers.
- Sonic's middle name was revealed as Maurice shortly after Sonic the Hedgehog #50; his first name wasn't given in canon, though former head writer Ken Penders apparently intended it to be "Olgilvie."
- It is unknown whether Maurice was Sonic's paternal or maternal grandfather.
