[Opening #1 plays. Song: SONIC DRIVE]

[Flashback to Sonic the Hedgehog arriving on Earth at Chris Thorndyke's house, falling into his pool. Chris gets out of his bed and dives into the pool, grabbing Sonic's hand and pulling him out of the water. Sonic and Chris sit at the side of the pool as Sonic recovers from the ordeal.]

Chris: There, are you okay, little guy?

[Sonic coughs.]

Sonic: I've been better. Thanks.

[Chris looks on, surprised that Sonic can talk.]

Chris: Y-You can actually talk?!

Sonic: Of course I can...

Chris: Th-This is incredible! I never seem something like you talk before! Oh, my name's Chris, by the way. What's yours?

Sonic: The name's Sonic...Sonic the Hedgehog!

[Title card appears]

Sonic: Infiltrate! Area 99

[It is day at Chris Thorndyke's house, a massive mansion on a large lot. Chris is on the phone to his mother, Lindsey Thorndyke, a successful movie actress.]

Lindsay: I'm sorry, Christopher, but we had to delay filming due to the ongoing rain. I'm afraid I won't be back home until next week at the earliest. But I do have some good news, I've bought some presents for you, and you can expect them in the mail some time soon.

[Chris is on a porch using a cordless phone, looking out at the vast yard.]

Chris: Okay!

Lindsay: The package also includes that cotton candy you always enjoy.

Chris: Thanks, Mom! Oh, well, I kinda have something I need to tell you...

Lindsay: What's wrong?

Chris: I kinda broke two house rules. No going out after sunset, and no going into the adult pool...

[Chris' butler, Tanaka, arrives from inside with a tray of food and drink. After he puts it down, he reenters the house.]

Lindsay: What?! You didn't decide to take a nighttime swim, did you?!

Chris: No, it wasn't like that at all. You see...

[He looks up at the roof, where Sonic is resting, listening to the conversation.]

Chris: A cat fell into the pool, and I had to save it before it drowned.

Lindsay: Oh, that was it? In that case, it's fine. You are such a good kid. I need to go now, goodbye.

[Chris kisses the phone as she hangs up. He rubs the back of his head in embarrassment at her comments. Sonic, meanwhile, jumps down and sits on the porch barrier fence beside Chris.]

Sonic: So that "cat" you were mentioning was supposed to be me, right?

Chris: Well, she wouldn't have believed me if I said "A large blue hedgehog fell into the pool", ya know?

Sonic: I guess so...?

Chris: Well, hedgehogs are usually about this size, and this length.

[He holds out his hands about the size of the cordless phone he is holding. Sonic groans.]

Chris: Oh, I didn't mean to offend you. It's just you're much bigger and can talk. In fact, when and where did you learn how to talk, anyway?

[Sonic itches his head in confusion.]

Sonic: Ya know, I'm not sure. I guess I've never really thought about it before.

Chris: I see...

[The phone rings to Chris' surprise. He answers it.]

Chris: Hello? Oh, hey Dad!

[The man on the other end of the phone is Chris' father, Nelson Thorndyke, a successful businessman.]

Nelson: Chris? Your mother just called me earlier, saying something about you saving a cat that fell into our pool. I should've known our security system isn't enough to keep strays out. Are you okay?

[Sonic looks on impatiently.]

Chris: Yeah, I'm fine. After I saved it, it just ran off.

[Sonic itches his ear.]

Chris: I seemed scared, but again, you don't need to worry about me.

Nelson: Really?

Chris: Of course, Grandpa is keeping me company, and Ella and Mr. Tanaka have my best interests in mind. Regardless, how have things been with you?

Nelson: Well, you know I've been really busy.

[Sonic continues to watch on impatiently.]

Chris: Right, well I'm sorry for making you worry,

Nelson: It's fine, Christopher. Anyways, I need to go. Try not to cause anymore trouble, okay?

Chris: Of course, Dad. Goodbye!

[He hangs up and looks back at Sonic, who is shaking his head in disbelief. Chris blushes slightly and chuckles.]

Chris: Oh, that reminds me, you probably need something for breakfast. Do you have any preferences?

Sonic: That depends, what do hedgehogs here normally eat?

Chris: Well, from what I was able to look up online...

[He hands Sonic a plate full of brown pellets.]

Chris: This was what I could come up with.

[Sonic takes one of the pellets and eats it. After a few bites, he responds in disgust.]

Sonic: What is this stuff?!

Chris: Cat food.

[Sonic sticks out his tongue in disgust, trying to get Chris to get rid of it.]

Sonic: No way! I am not eating this!

Chris: Well from what I read, hedgehog food and cat food can be interchangeable. I also read that dry grass and crickets are part of their diets...

[Sonic knocks the plate out of Chris' hand and stands up. He jumps away into a tree as Chris runs to the edge of the porch.]

Chris: Huh?! Wh-Where are you...?!

[Sonic, standing on a tree branch nearby, looks back.]

Sonic: I'm going to find some real food.

Chris: No! It's way too risky for you to go out by yourself!

Sonic: See ya!

[He jumps out of the tree and away.]

Chris: Sonic, wait! Come back!!

[A television reporter reports on Sonic from the previous night, showing imagery from the helicopter of Sonic running along the highway.]

Reporter: Due to the incredible speeds, it is difficult to make out the image. Here are interviews with people who were at the scene.

[A police officer appears on the report, showing the height of Sonic by putting his hand near his waist.]

Officer: It's about this big, blue and looked like a hedgehog.

[A driver is interviewed.]

Driver: It went really fast, it passed by me with a SCREECH while going that way.

[Another driver is interviewed.]

Driver 2: I'm not kidding, I think it was going faster than Mach 5.

[A scientist with animals is interviewed, holding onto a monkey that has one of its hands around the scientist's neck and the other on his glasses, playing with them.]

Scientist: Well, it could be a U.M.A.. If you're wondering if it can be a being from the Earth, answer is no. The fastest animal is the cheetah, but they can't run as fast as a car.

[Zoom out to see Chris and Sonic watching the television report on a large flat-screen television in his living space.]

Scientist: An animal with such speed does not exist.

[Sonic is eating some food while watching the report.]

Chris: Is it tasty?

Scientist: It would be easier to simply say it is a machine.

[Sonic is munching on the food that Chris gave him while his grandfather, Chuck Thorndyke, enters the room.]

Sonic: More or less.

[Chuck walks into the room.]

Chuck: Did you hear Chris?! They said that what outran the S Team was some kind of mysterious machine.

[Chuck looks down to see Sonic, who is casually staring up at him from the couch. Chuck looks at the TV, then back at Sonic. He then zooms in on Sonic, staring at him right in his face. Chris quickly grabs a pillow and smothers Sonic, causing Chuck to back off.]

Sonic: *muffled* HEY! What are you doing?! Take it off!!

[He escapes the pillow and throws it off. He sits still in anger.]

Chuck: Blue...looks like a hedgehog...

[He gasps as he comes to realization of who Sonic is, smiling with joy. He then grabs Sonic.]

Sonic: Hey, hey, hey, wait!

[Chuck brings out a screwdriver. He digs it into the back of Sonic, causing him to laugh from being tickled.]

Chuck: What is this thing made of...

Sonic: AH! Stop!

[He escapes Chucks' grasp and jumps away, in front of the television. Chuck reacts in anger.]

Chuck: Don't run away!

Chris: Uhh...grandpa...he's...Sonic isn't a machine.

[Chuck stands up, aghast, dropping his screwdriver. While the three are staring at eachother, Cream's voice is heard over the television report.]

Cream: Stay away, please! I'm scared!

Cheese: Chao!

[Sonic looks at the television report, which shows a large billboard. A fire truck is beside it with a ladder with firefighters climbing up to Cream and Cheese, who are standing on the billboard ledge. Cream is holding onto Cheese, shaking in fear.]

Cream: Please! Stay away!

Sonic: It's Cream and Cheese!

Chris: You know them?

Sonic: So I wasn't the only one who came to this strange world. All right, wait for me!

[He runs off and out of the mansion. Chris tries to follow, but stops at the door. He shouts to Sonic.]

Chris: Do you even know where it is?!

[Sonic breaks through a hedge fence and skids to a stop. He runs back to Chris, stopping in front of him, shrugging his arms with a silly smile.]

[Chris and Sonic go to Chuck's large garage. Chuck is on the phone.]

Chuck: Okay. Yes, that will be helpful. I'll treat you to lunch next time.

[He hangs up and looks at Chris. Sonic is playing with one of Chuck's machines.]

Chuck: The police said that they were transfered to Area 99.

Chris: Area 99?

[He recalls the area, a military base similar to that of an airport with three runways in the middle of a desert.]

Chris: Isn't that a military laboratory?

Sonic: Military?

Chris: Yeah, the national defense force with tanks, armed cars and other weapons.

Sonic: Sounds like that creep, Dr. Eggman.

Chuck: To be taken to the military's laboratory means that they want to research them, like aliens from outer space or some kind of biological weapon that another country developed. But what really happens there, eh?

Sonic: How'd I know? Well, now that I know where the place is, I'm going.

[He starts walking away.]

Chris: If you do that, they'll catch you too!

[Sonic stops and looks back.]

Sonic: If they can catch me.

[The garage door closes in front of Sonic. He looks back again.]

Sonic: What're you doing?!

Chris: It wasn't me...

Chuck: It was me!

[Chuck flexes his muscles.]

Chuck: This looks like fun! My blood is excited!

Chris: You, grandpa?!

Chuck: You're also going. Don't you always say you refuse to have a boring life like your father?

Chris: That's a secret. You can't say that to Papa!

Chuck: I know!

[The trio are now on the road in Chuck's open-top sportster, riding along a road in the middle of a desert. Chuck driving while Chris is in the front, Sonic sitting, cross-armed, in the back.]

Sonic: This thing is going so slow, geez...

Chuck: Oh come on!

[Chris is holding onto a portable scanner that fits over the ear and has a transparent display for the right eye, similar to that of the scouter from the anime series Dragon Ball Z, but with a microphone as well.]

Chris: Is this it?

Chuck: Oh yes, yes!

[Chris hands the scanner to Sonic. He points at his head.]

Chris: Put it on.

Sonic: What is it?

Chuck: An infrared scope. Most likely, in Area 99, there will be plenty of traps, but if you use that, you should be able to avoid them.

[He puts the scope on, which fits perfectly. He gives a thumbs up and takes off his seatbelt. He jumps out of the car.]

Sonic: Thank you! Well, I'm going ahead!

[He speeds off ahead, overcoming the car no problem. Chris reacts with joy while Chuck is baffled at the sight.]

Chuck: Oh wow, he's so fast! All right!!

[He slams the gas pedal to the floor and speeds off, adrenaline pumping, while Chris is pushed back into his seat. Sonic, meanwhile, has already progressed far ahead.]

[The main Area 99 base is a square building with a rotunda. The whole area is protected by a double fence with barbed wire, guard towers and sirens. Inside, a large control room full of people monitor the security of the site and progress of experiments. One large screen shows a scientist waiting in an elevator as it goes underground. The door opens as another camera watches the scientist walk out, tracking his every movement. He approaches another door and an access panel. He puts his eye in front of a retinal scanner. It scans his eye.]

Computer: ID Number F219563-1.

[The computer verifies his identify, with another camera watching him. The door opens and he enters]

[Inside is a laboratory. Cream and Cheese are inside, locked in a transparent tube watching in fear as scientists work at control stations located around the room.]

Cream: Please let me out!

[A camera apparatus approaches the tube and looks at Cream and Cheese. They react in fear as Cream can see her reflection in the camera lens.]

Cream: W-What is this? What are you going to do with us?!

[The scientists completely ignore them as they monitor the data they are receiving. The camera is outputting a heat signature reading of the two. Cream reacts in fear as it continues to scan her.]

[Sonic, meanwhile, is still running toward Area 99.]

Chris: *communication* Can you hear me, Sonic?

Sonic: Yeah!

Chris: *communication* When you get in, head for the air vents. From there, you should be able to pass security.

[Chuck nods.]

Chris: Got it?

Sonic: All right!

[Chris looks at Chuck.]

Chris: But do you know where they are locked up?

[Chuck grabs the microphone communicator from Chris.]

Chuck: Of course!

[He speaks to Sonic.]

Chuck: Head for a suspicious-looking place, and if you go there, you should find our objective.

Chris: No way...

Sonic: I'll take care of it!

[He approaches the main gate of Area 99 at high speed, jumping over the two security fences with no problem. Six cameras detect him.]

Computer: Intruder detected.

[In the security room, the main displays show the exterior cameras attempting to track Sonic. Numerous cameras outside look all around, but can't locate him. He runs along an exterior pathway, faster than the cameras can catch. He looks ahead to see a large and open air vent, which he jumps into, sliding far underground.]

Sonic: I'm in the air vents!

Chris: Roger!

[Sonic hits the bottom on his butt, which he rubs in pain.]

Sonic: Well, that was close. Now, let's see...

[He crawls along the vent, but stops as he sees numerous motion sensing lasers ahead with his scope.]

Sonic: What the? There's no way!

Chris: *communication* What did you just say?

[He looks around.]

Sonic: Nothing.

[He moves ahead a bit at a grate before the motion sensors start. He looks down to see a corridor full of cameras.]

Sonic: This is a really low level.

[He pulls the grate off and pokes his head through the ceiling of the corridor. A camera is nearby, looking around. Once it looks away, he pops down more and drops out, hugging his back against the wall under the camera. He then looks ahead and starts zig-zagging along the corridor against the walls while the various cameras look away from him. He reaches another corridor and hides, escaping detection.]

Sonic: Too easy!

[He looks ahead as the corridor continues on with even more security cameras.]

Sonic: All!

[He continues zig-zagging along, avoiding the cameras' sights.]
