Sonic's Schoolhouse is a rather bland educational PC game starring Sonic the Hedgehog intended for kids no older than 9 years old, with bland pre-rendered graphics (even for the time), irritating midi files, and pointless .avi animations everywhere. Not to mention his girly voice...


Present in four of the AVI files is a strange talking clock which may have been used before the developers managed to get the Sonic license. The voice actor is unknown, although the voice sounds different than Sonic's.

CC_HELP2.avi, CC_HELP3.avi, and CC_HELP4.avi

These three files, created on January 8, 1996, are all identical in content: an animation of a clock jumping up and rotating in midair while saying "Click on me for help!"

"CC_HELP3" has noticeably blockier video quality than the other two, possibly as a test for the video compression.


Created October 2, 1995, predating the aforementioned files. It contains the animation of the above files, played forward then in reverse until stopping on a still frame of the clock.

Development on the actual voice clips used in the game did not begin until May 6, 1996 at 10:34 AM according to in-game sound files. These were likely placeholders for the game until the Sonic license was acquired.
