*Probably a reference to Doctor Robotnik of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, specifically the initial video game franchise.

I beg to differ. The reference was very obvious, and it was most likely from this series which the idea was referenced, because - quite fittingly - the pun first appeared on that series of storybooks intended for a children audience; Also, like you said, a bad pun on -eggs replacing all instances of -ex, and then from the on it seeped into popular usage (Remember, Sonic is a mascot of Sega, which was *once* popular!
