Awesome Possum... Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt is a video game created by Tengen for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis that was released in the early 1990s. The game borrows heavily from Sonic the Hedgehog, featuring an anthropomorphic possum character who battles a mad scientist and his army of robots to save the world, and has the ability to spin to attack enemies.

Unlike Sonic, Awesome Possum includes environmental activist elements, with the character collecting empty bottles and cans instead of rings, and answering questions about the environment to earn bonus points in his fight against the evil Dr. Machino. There are also various other animals located within levels which the character can ride to activate their ability, such as a bee which allows the character to fly or a rhino that catapults the character. There are a total of four worlds which together consist of 13 levels all together. The game also has a total of 12 bonus stages along side the quiz which the character must collect as many recyclables as he can and reach the end before the time expires. The game is also repetitive, using the same basic environment for each level.

It was notable for its time for having many lines of digitized speech, a feature with which the game was marketed. The box also states "it is an excellent educational game for all ages".
