Dr. Robotnik: The Young People's Satellite Network (1979-1980)

Logo: The camera zooms in at a table with a laboratory at the top. Then, we see a boy putting his eyes on the goggles. The camera fades to the first Dr. Robotnik logo, which shows a man looking at a lab machine on top of the D.

FX/SFX: Live action.

Cheesy Factor: The film quality is horrible but that might be intentional.

Music/Sounds: The clicks of the nickelodeon, and the announcer, Phil Tonken, says "Introducing, Dr. Robotnik. Adult's Programming that's fit for children. 14 hours of programming a day, 7 days of week that will make them wonder, laugh, ponder, and think."

Music Variant: Same as above, but a guitar tune, which sounds like something played over a silent film, now plays, and the announcer says "We took everything that was wrong with children's television and got rid of it. We kept everything that was good about it and made it better. The result is Dr. Robotnik, The Young People's Satellite Network."

Scare Factor: High. The creepiness of the logo and how old it is can unsettle you.

FX/SFX: Live action.

Bouncing Pinball 1981-1984

Logo: We see a small silver ball emerging from a tube then going down a slide. It then bounces off a trampoline, then goes down various tubes and tunnels. It then goes up in a balloon and falls. It comes up in a water spurt and, before zooming up and becoming cartoon, the word "Dr." zooms out over it and then "Dr. Robotnik" zooms in.

SFX/FX: Live action.

Music/Sounds: A bouncy-type Moog synthesizer tune.

Robotnik's Top Of The Hour: 1985-1993

Logo: On a living room, we see a TV imprinted by the Dr. Robotnik logo with various shapes emerging from it, before a parody of Salvador Dali's "Persistence of Memory" appears with several Robotnik clocks melting after spinning its hands, then some flying calendars with Dr. Robotnik on the top of each calendar on a house background, then to a 20th Century Fox-esque structure with 1985 or 1986 (depending on the year) on the top with the Dr. Robotnik logo on it. Then, a road appears and then a Robotnik arrow sign. We cut to a road with men racing in hot dog-shaped karts, each with a Robotnik bun, then to a futuristic city with a Dr. Robotnik rocket-ship passing by. Then, various people with different types of clothes and accessories, as well as a Dr. heart beating once, a robot with human ears, an early Dr. Robotnik haystack logo, and TheShinyMew in chibi form wearing a tuxedo whose bow tie spins once. Then, an ice cream cone appears with a Pingas ice cream scoop falling directly on it, then to a cat and a dog on bumper cars, but accidentally collide into each other to say "PINGAS!!!" on the bottom of the bumper cars, then to a little fish that is eaten by several bigger fish consecutively with the largest reading PINGAS, then we cut to a front seat ride on a roller coaster as it goes into a clown head with eyes moving side to side. Finally, we cut to the same Robotnik television with the same objects emitted. There is also a couple in space-like attire as well as a robotic dog watching it, then the Dr Robotnik logo jumps out of the TV and fills the entire screen and landing as a polygon with spikes on a blue background.

Variant: In 1987, the whole animation was changed to a completely new animation featuring ncarw as a DJ with TV lollipops & animals.
