Sonic the Hedgehog is a popular character originating the eponymous Sega video game series. He also had a long-running Archie Comics series that had been published for 24 years before it finally ended. Sonic's comics were subsequently picked up by IDW Publishing.
While the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures comics were still in print, the Turtles made a cameo appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog #2 in a panel where Michelangelo tries to make a guest appearance and help Sonic only to be told to scram.
In Sonic the Hedgehog #10, all four turtles were seen in the background during Sonic's trek through the sewers, the brothers comment that they're in the wrong comic book.
Also in the Knuckles the Echidna miniseries in issue #3 when Knuckle's home Angel Island is seen on fire we see amongst the fleeing animals a naked Michelangelo is seen making a cameo.
In Sonic Universe #26 when Silver the Hedgehog travels to an alternate timeline he and the Dark Freedom Fighters are seen using a base that resembles the Turtles Lair.
