Sonic is celebrating his 30th Anniversary this year, so, it's time to ask yourself: How much about the blue blur do you really know?

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most iconic gaming heroes of our time. But - how much about Sonic and his creation throughout the decades do you know? Here are 12 Things about Sonic the Hedgehog you Might Not Know.

While the original Sonic the Hedgehog game had plenty of interesting zones that would become series staples - such as Green Hill Zone, or even the look and feel of Spring Yard Zone… which would basically evolve into Casino Night Zone - there were a couple of super interesting ones that never made the final cut.

It was also long rumored that Michael Jackson was involved in making the music for Sonic 3. He was reportedly a huge fan of Sega, and there was, of course, a Michael Jackson video game, Moonwalker.
