The Blu-ray order is the original production order. This is also probably the order that was used on Egyptian television.

Definitely going by original air dates - the broadcast order not the production order. That way it matches how it was broadcast back in 1992-1994 (the production order, which is what's on the DVD's and Blu-Rays, is chaotic and scrambled, in my opinion).

I would suggest following the production order (the order on the home video releases). The airdate order features at least one continuity error, if I remember correctly.

None that I can recall, outside of they aired "The Cat and the Claw part 1" as a special preview on the Saturday morning before it started airing on weekday afternoons (and they aired "part 2" the following Saturday). So you had some episodes that aired in between, but if that's that only issue, just watch pt. 1 and pt. 2 back to back.

Here's the "broadcast" (air date) episode order:

For maximum nostalgia (re-enactment of what it was like watching these back in 1992-1994), I recommend coming home from school (or work) and turning on one episode per day. And then play some Super Nintendo after that....joking aside, that's how I remember watching them unfold.

EDIT: Here's the "production" order seen on the DVDs/Blu-Rays...

Thanks for sharing that, wonderfly! I had actually forgotten much of the broadcast order. Looking at that list though, there was indeed one continuity error, which is that "Tyger Tyger" aired before "Cat Scratch Fever". This presents a problem since a certain character chronologically appears in "The Cat and the Claw", then "Cat Scratch Fever" and then "Tyger Tyger".

One other thing I like about the production order is that you can really see the animation change as the series progresses. Very early episodes like "On Leather Wings", "Christmas With the Joker", "The Last Laugh", "P.O.V." "The Forgotten" etc. have a unique aesthetic and feel that isn't quite captured in many of the later episodes.

I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
it is kinda weird how despite Frozen being the highest grossing animated movie until Lion King 2019, there were no mainstream animated movies that tried to copy it, or at least accused of copying Frozen. I wonder why?
Just letting you guys know: I'm changing my username in two weeks. It's similar to the original, but a bit more wordy.
