"The Damnation of Shrek"
Sanic character. This episode is when the creators tried a formula of two 11 minute shorts. The formula turned out rubbish, but the two episodes we got were still good.
Come on, Shrek it up! Edit
Plot Summary EditThe big four are hanging out in the house when they see the President of the United States talking to a blue hegehog. The hegehog is revealed to be Sanic, who has met the president in the past. Sanic hangs out in the house and the four try their best to avoid him, until Sophie meets Sanic and introduce him to the four. Sanic begins to eat all their food, and the four get angry. Shrek decides to do something when Sanic challenges him to a race. He accepts, seeing his chance, and they race throughout the city from Sonic Adventure 2. Shrek uses his powers of layer to speed himself up, and he wins. Sanic is supposedly disappointed, and Shrek punches him in the dick to tell him to shut the fuck up. The four and Sanic talk and become friends.
- The name of the episode is a pun of one of Sanic's catchphrases, "Come on, step it up!" and the word Shrek.
- This episode is the origin of the song All Star Escape, which would be used several times throughout the series, by Shranik shippers, and is included in the official Bee Shrek Test in the House soundtrack.
