Sonic Says card

Sonic Says title card.

The Sonic Says (misspelled as Sonic Sez by Tails) segments are always seen at the end of an Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog TV episode. The purpose of Sonic Says is to teach kids about various things, from "don't use a gun" to "paying attention" to "staying in school".

After the unaired pilot, these segments always start out with Tails painting "Sonic Sez" on a big orange sign with blue paint. Then Sonic pops out from a hole in the center of the sign, looks at the spelling, angrily grabs the brush from Tails' hand and corrects the misspelled "Sez" to "Says". After that, he gives the audience a thumbs up.

In the game Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, there are tips given to players about racing, controls, or some humor during the loading times. It is the only game that gives tribute to Sonic Says.
