Sonic the Hedgehog is known to be the first video game character to be featured as a balloon in the immensely successful parade. It clearly resembled the character, though was a bit bigger (or rather a lot bigger) at a whopping 64 feet. Unfortunately, the character's balloon crashed into a lamppost, thus injuring two by-standers.
This fate also befell two other popular characters - Spider-Man and Rex the Dinosaur.
