Cartoon Quickie: Hulk Hogan's Rock N' Wrestling

Hulk Hogan is the most famous Wrestler ever. but did you know he had a Cartoon series? It's true?

The series starred animated versions of WWE/WWF superstars of that era. The heroes were: Hulk Hogan(natch),Andre The Giant(who was portrayed as very slow witted),Captain Lou Albano,Tito Santana,The Junkyard Dog,and Wendi Richter.

Representing the bad guys were: Rowdy Roddy Pipper,Big John Studd,Mr. Fuji(omega sized kudos if you remember who he is),Nikolai Volkoff,The Iron Sheik,and Fabulous Moolah(r.i.p.).

In each episode,when they're not wrestling,Hogan and his crew help out their friends,participate in community service,or do charity events.This is easier said than done,because Piper and his friends constantly try to sabotage the hero's work.

But in the end,Piper's deeds backfire and everything turns out alright.

The Show lasted a single season and,like 49% of 80's cartoons,had animation flawes. The show itself wasn't very good as 95.5% of the series contained mediocre-bad story telling. It was also kinda corny at times.

On the up side,the theme music is kinda cool.

See ya next time on Cartoon Quickie!
