Sonic For Hire Wiki

“Sonic, wake the fuck up, man. What's wrong with you?” — Tails

"Toe Jam & Earl" is the third episode of the first season of the Sonic For Hire series.


Sonic helps Toe Jam and Earl capture humans, or so he believes...


Sonic is tasked by the duo Toe Jam & Earl (of Toe-Jam & Earl) to capture humans by trapping them inside jars. Sonic happily claims this as the best job ever and becomes overjoyed when he finds out that the job pays "1 billion trillion Funkotron Bucks" (which converts up to "1 Zillion USD"). As Sonic rejoices for his success, it turns out that the whole experience was a hallucination from LSD and gets woken up by Tails. Sonic claims that he has Tails' rent money, but Tails states that he got high four days ago, wandered off, mistook a garbage bag and busted office chair as Toe Jam & Earl, and injured several bystanders by throwing glass jars at them. Finally snapping back into reality, Sonic leaves the area with Tails before the cops can arrive.
