Sonic the hedgehog Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons have a chaotic but thrilling history. He was the first video game character to be described as a Macy’s Thanksgiving balloon, but it is also the most deleted balloon in the history of the parade. And now he’s back.
He first appeared in the Thanksgiving parade in 1993 as a 64-foot-high balloon filled with helium and hope, but strong winds turned his debut into a catastrophe. In a twist that appeared to be adjusted by Eggman himself, Sonic was stabbed in the eye by a ramp post, and the fallen debris injured an off-duty police officer and a 10-year-old girl (both fine and don’t worry). rice field).
But they fixed the Blue Blur and he reappeared in 1994 and 1995 — but the same thing happened in 1995 and Sonic was stabbed into a tree. For some reason, Sega did not learn from either of these disasters, and Sonic reappeared in 1996 and 1997, and then retired primarily due to all the holes in his face.
It wasn’t until 2011 that Sonic won with a new, more sophisticated design and perhaps a well-reinforced head. He joined the Swiss Cheese brothers in the empty Green Hill Zone after appearing three times in each of the 2011, 2012 and 2013 annual parades.
But it’s 2021, and that second sonic is finally back to us again to celebrate his 30th birthday, as revealed by an intern working on a balloon posted on Instagram. increase.
With a height of 50 feet and a width of 65 feet, he is a pretty big guy. In addition, he is now that’s all A video game character balloon (unless you count SpongeBob SquarePants) to appear in the 2021 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Other giant balloons on display are Boss Baby, Sponge Bob Square Pants and Gary, Sinclair Oil Dinosaurs, Baby Yoda, Astronaut Snoopy, and Netflix’s new kids show Ada Twist. Ada Twist, Scientist, And Red Titan from Ryan’s World, A popular toy review YouTube channel with 30.6 million subscribers.
The parade has been running since 1924 and will take place on November 25th from 9am to 12pm in New York City. Since the introduction of Sonic, I’ve seen several other video game characters such as Pikachu and Angry Birds Red, but Mario has never appeared. Then 1-0 for Sega fans.
