Today, I break from Disney and, keeping with the birthday theme from my previous posts (namely, Goofy and Donald), celebrate the 17th birthday of Sonic the Hedgehog!
(Yes, I like other characters besides Disney in case you couldn't tell by the links on the right side of my blog.) I don't have anything prepared for him this year, but I did write a fanfic for his and Eggman's birthday on Fanfiction.net. (Dr. Eggman debuted the same day as Sonic, ya know.) If you still need a "Sonic" fix for his birthday today, Sonic Stadium had gotten the online "Sonic" community together and did a tribute to him for his 15th in 2006 called "The Summer of Sonic". And it looks like they're doing it again this year. Check the out the main site here.
On a related note (or should I say, belated), Garfield celebrated his 30th birthday on the 19th of this month! I didn't notice until I read the comics the day after. Sorry for the delay, Garfield, I guess I forgot. And for those of you who don't believe me (that is, if you've never even heard of Garfield, and why shouldn't you?), here's the comic strip to prove it (from Garfield's official web site):
So, happy birthday to Sonic and Eggman and a belated happy birthday to Garfield! Neither of you look a day over year one. (But if you're a toon, that's not hard. LOL)
