Edit: Feb 20th 2009 - With Sonic Shorts 5 out now, it seems my short has been pushed by to Volume 6. There have been problems with the file size, so I don't mind.

Sonic is voiced by :icongamebuddy123:
Sonic Shorts Volume 5 submission. Preloader by :iconthewax:


Cast your mind back to the good old days of Sonic 3. Do you remember the barrel in Carnival Night Zone that you could not get past? Well you weren't the only one! Plenty of people had this problem, and still do!

This is the idea for my short. Sonic arrives at one of the barrels and jumps on to it. It fails to move so he tries again. Confused, he looks towards Tails who has no idea. In the 'a long time later' part, you will see Sonic attacking the barrel with a clamer (we all wanted revenge against this barrel, you see lol. We then see Tails conducting experiments on the barrel while Sonic waits impatiently. He then notices that they are approching the 10 minute mark and orders Tails to hurry up. While sulkling he discovers the instruction manual on how to use the barrel. Reading it, he discovers just how easy it is to use. Angry at this revelation, Sonic loses his temper, but before he can swear the timer reaches 9:59 and he dies.

It's odd, I don't remember ever having a problem with that barrel when I played this game as a kid. It came as a huge surprise to me years later when I found out that it was such a heavy roadblock to so many people.

You know. ALL THESE YEARS I've Played Sonic 3. I NEVER figured out how to properly get through this. I had to go WAY up just to get under the moving platform before it could go down. THIS SHORT SAVED MY LIFE!!

I remember that, I found it quite fustrating when I was up to that bit. It made me just as angry as Sonic in this animation. But I knew that a few years later.

I know I remember that time with that barrel. Even to this day, I still hear people on YouTube and here reminiscing about the horrors of getting stuck there when playing the game as a kid. Good job on this man, good job

I felt like Sonic. It took me ten years. TEN YEARS.(4 years of age to 14) I beat every other Sonic game in that series 30 times before I could get past this level. 9:59 Man I wish I had more time. X(
