One day, as Sonic and Tails are just starting to enjoy a couple of chili dogs, Professor Turtle walks by. He stops and turns around, noticing Sonic about to take a bite into his chili dog. He then tells Sonic that "we're in great danger". He then proceeds to lead Sonic to his observatory (very slowly), where he shows Sonic that an asteroid is headed directly for Turtle Town. When Sonic suggests that the town be evacuated, the professor volunteers to take care of it, and walks out of the building at his slow pace. He can be seen in the crowd at the Robolympics throughout the rest of the episode.
