Sonic is absolutely nowhere I knock about.
Mario is still more popular and recognisable even though Sonic has a TV show and mobile games. Mario games also seem to be much more popular among kids. I've never seen a young kid give a crap about Sonic, while everytime I see a young kid (or play games with a young kid) they have a Mario game or care about Mario. They love MK, the want to be Mario characters in Smash, etc. No contest, really.
Plus, there's Mario commercials on kids channels all the time. A shit-ton of merchandise both online and in the way of shirts/shoulder-bags/whatever on the streets.
I mean, as far as merchandise goes, there's a lot of companies milking their characters much more, but Mario's everywhere compared to Sonic.
