Rare 1999 Video of Sonic on Rosie O’Donnell Show Discovered and Saved

An interview clip featuring Sonic the Hedgehog on the 1999 Rosie O’Donnell Show has been rediscovered and posted online, rapidly amassing over 200,000 views. Shared by Twitter user RebelTaxi, the video dates back to when an actor in a Sonic costume appeared on Rosie’s show, linked to the release of Sonic Adventure and a Toys For Tots campaign. Sonic is shown donating 500 plush toys, while Rosie surprises the audience with Sega Dreamcast bundles.



The character’s voiceover was provided by Ryan Drummond, who voiced Sonic until 2004. Drummond later reminisced about the experience on the Nerd On Podcast, although the identity of the person in the Sonic costume is still unknown. Despite Drummond’s vivid description of the costumed individual, that person’s true identity remains as enigmatic as their contrasting image and off-screen occupation. For lending his voice to the character, Drummond received a Dreamcast and several games from Sega.
