Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Wiki

"Black Bot the Pirate" is the forty-eighth episode of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. Despite being produced as the forty-eighth episode, it aired as the thirty-seventh episode during the show's original run. This episode is the first part of the "Quest for the Chaos Emeralds" saga.


  • The alternate name of this episode is "Quest for the Chaos Emeralds (1); Time for Trouble".
  • The girl who Sonic calls "a cute little hedgehog in a polka dot bikini" is a recolored Breezie.
  • Dr. Robotnik says his catchphrase "I hate that hedgehog!" in the middle of this episode rather than the end.
  • The line "you'll be able to run on the circuits of the planet at the speed of light and enter the time warp" is said by Professor Caninestein in all four episodes of the saga.
  • The song Sonic sings to Black Bot in an attempt to distract him is a parody of the nursery rhyme and lullaby "Rock-a-bye Baby"; Jaleel White actually sings in his voice for Sonic. The lyrics go like this:
Rock-a-bye, Black Bot, on the mast top!
When Sonic spins, get ready to flop!
When the mast breaks, the pirate will fall, and down will come Black Bot,
Peg leg and all!
