If I asked you who the most famous hedgehog is, what would your answer be? Well, I like to imagine that your answer would instantly be Sonic, but with his waning popularity over the years our younger readers might have said Marutaro. Take a look at this video that combines the two for the cutest, nerdiest six-second video ever seen.
Alright, so who is Marutaro? Marutaro has seen near instant stardom online with a Twitter account that boasts almost 4,000 followers and a series of Vine videos, like the one this video was made from. It seems Marutaro’s owner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, felt the over abundance of cute cat videos online has left the door open for an equally as cute animal to change the game on everyone.
So with a new hedgehog getting this famous this fast, how are the loyal fans of the Sonic The Hedgehog series supposed to feel? Well, it seems Lance Stewart and Hus Yaralioglu found a way to appease both crowds through a little digital wizardry. Now, we can be rest assured that Marutaro won’t let this fame get to their head, and knows to appreciate the hard work those who came before had to put in.
