I think it's more of a case of Sega of America reimagining what Sega of Japan already established (localization and whatnot), since the Freedom Fighters are pretty much reimagined animals from Sonic 1. But as far as the SatAM cartoon goes, I've heard that the show's concept was done by Len Janson.

DiC never stayed true to character designs.

Mostly because Milton Knight wanted Robotnik to be as expressive through animation as possible but ABC didn't like the Adventures cartoon, so Robotnik had to be redesigned again.

I'm pretty sure Toby means DiC in general, not just in relation to Sonic. like, compare the DiC season of GI Joe to the Sunbow seasons

Pretty sure those were accurate to the toys of the time.

Better example? King Koopa vs. Bowser, and the toon Koopalings vs. their game selves. Heck, Mario, Luigi, Toad, the Princess, and Yoshi used different character models as well, though those were generally closer to the overall original designs. On the other hand, then we have Link, Zelda, Ganon, Mega Man, Pit/Kid Icarus, Simon Belmont, Mother Brain... though there was at least some sort of explanation for the Captain N crew.
