The pilot epiosode of "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" (namely "Super
Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad") shows Tails flying quite clearly.
While flying, he is drawn with 4 tails at 90 degrees to each other, each
tail curving up at the end in an "S" shape, and all tails rotating in a
clockwise direction (as viewed from above). The drawing in this episode
is in the unmistakeable style of Scott Shaw!, with the same body-morphing
technique seen in the Archie comic Sonic mini-series.

Usually, Tails' heli-tails are just drawn as a blur. There is another
"Adventures" episode ("Tails Prevails"(?)) in which Tails (accidentally)
starts a cyclone vortex by twirling his tails, which wouldn't happen with
counter-rotating tails.
