Yup, Sonic the Hedgehog. Star of many a video game I played when I was younger. We still have artifacts around the house from my days at Sega - a stuffed Sonic, his sidekick Tails, and other bits and pieces. Including my favourite jacket. My son is a big video game guy, so he's also a fan.
Therefore, he decided if we were going to have a hedgehog here, it had to be blue. (He said this with the utmost seriousness that only a 14 year old can deliver.)
So, our own Sonic:
