    Uber-nerd Time: There is an important protein in early mammal developemnt (embryo stages) that is named Sonic Hedgehog and is named after our favorite blue speed demon. In addition a potention inhibitor of Sonic Hedgehog was found and is called Robotnikinin and that is named after the good (and by good I mean evil) Docotor. I swear I made none of this up.
