Default Dr. Eggman designed in Theodore Roosevelt's likeness?


In April 1990, Sega petitioned its research and development department, AM8, to create a character who would replace Alex Kidd as the company's mascot, as well as compete against Nintendo's flagship character, Mario. Several character designs were submitted, including an armadillo (later developed into Mighty the Armadillo), a dog, a spiky hedgehog (which would later become Sonic), and a rabbit. The latter was intended to use its extending ears to collect objects; these aspects were later incorporated into Ristar.[5] A caricature of Theodore Roosevelt was also among the proposed designs, but lost to Sonic the Hedgehog, and eventually became the basis for Dr. Eggman.[5]

wtf, I didn't know that! This picture, apparently is the charicature they were talking about:

I miss my Megadrive...

Thank heavens for emulators.

I still like to play the Sonic the Hedgehog themesongs from the games on the old piano sometimes...

His name is not Eggman!!!

I can't STAND when people call him Eggman... wtf?!


On a side note though, that's some great history lesson there. +rep.

I got laid last nite because I wasn't playing PC games. Consolitus! No wait....

QFT!

What bastard named him Eggman, Robotnik was a better name and his only real name.

Back when Sonic was good
