ABOUT SQUEAKY ZONE PRODUCTIONS

On December 21, 1999, a young teen named David Eakes wrote the first version of the site known then as The Squeaky Zone launched at Tripod. It began as a fan site for Sonic the Hedgehog, Dragon Ball, Mega Man, and Final Fantasy, and some various fan art of Squeaks - later called Harry in Final Fantasy Sonic II. As traffic grew, the site was split into "Sectors" and distributed among multiple Tripod sites with the HTML equivalent of duct tape. In March of 2000, Squeaks, Jr. or SJ was created as a reboot of Squeaks. Additional artwork of SJ became prevalent on The Squeaky Zone. During the Fall of 2000, David used The Squeaky Zone as an amateur opinion site covering the controversial 2000 Presidential Election in the United States.Then, on July 4, 2001, the first Final Fantasy Sonic was created. Comics were uploaded more or less daily the rest of 2001. At the end of 2001, David joined Dirty Power, Inc. (which would later become the now defunct Fireball20XL.com) as a staff member, Final Fantasy Sonic and by extension The Squeaky Zone enjoyed a surge of popularity until mid-2002 when daily bandwidth constraints of Tripod finally began shutting down The Squeaky Zone in the evenings. After a few failed moves, and the registration of the domain squeakyzone.com, eventually pay webhosting was purchased and The Squeaky Zone migrated to squeakyzoneproductions.com. Soon after, staff members joined The Squeaky Zone and would come and go until the end of 2007. (Thank you to Miriam Binda, Matt Kolbe, Chris Lange, Tyson Hesse, Jesse Golden, and Bengoshia for your contributions over that time span.) At the end of 2007, David went on hiatus, but minimally maintained The Squeaky Zone until September 19, 2012 when the name was officially changed to Squeaky Zone Productions and version 7.0 was launched. Regular updates continued until 2014. Sporadic updates continued until Flash was removed in favor of embeded Youtube videos and the site was rewritten in September of 2017...


ABOUT FINAL FANTASY SONIC

On July 4, 2001, David Eakes messed around with some sprite sheets and some word bubbles in JASC Paint Shop Pro 7 and Final Fantasy Sonic (aka FFS) was born - the amalgam of Japanese RPG using Sonic characters (pre-dating that other similarly named Flash series by over three years). On July 4, 2002, Final Fantasy Sonic II launched as a continuation of the original (chronologically released between FFS 137 and 138). FFS II updated occasionally through 2007 when David went on hiatus until October 20, 2012 when the bulk of the story outline was scrapped and rewritten. Approaching mid-2013, David announced the end of the series and the start of another, code named Trinity to launch at the end of FFS II. Beginning in February of 2013, hints began to be dropped that Trinity was in reality Final Fantasy Sonic III another continuation of the series. On July 4, 2013 FFS II ended and FFS III had its big reveal. On July 26, 2013, Final Fantasy Sonic: Retcon launched as a comic concurrent with FFS III to be used for side-stories and revisions of the series. In September of 2017, the comics animated in Flash were converted from SWF to embedded Youtube videos. Final Fantasy Sonic continues...
