Cartoon Production Information:
The show featured any wrestler who was popular at the time (Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, The Junkyard Dog, etc.), but the focus was on the WWF's biggest star, Hulk Hogan. Hogan, who was a positive role model for all, never turned down an opportunity to help out those in need, the springboard to the plots of most episodes. In many cases, Hogan was forced to ally himself and his "good guy" cronies with the "bad guy" wrestlers in order to get things done. The bad guys were usually only looking out for themselves and reverted to their abhorrent ways immediately after solving that week's crisis.
There were two half-hour episodes per show.
The series also featured live segments in which Hogan, along with announcer "Mean" Gene Okerlund, would relay a positive message to the kids, generally one that fit with the day's episode. The show satisfied its "rock" quotient by featuring a montage of the wrestlers performing a variety of acts, backed up by popular tunes in highlight reel fashion. The concept for the series came from musician Cyndi Lauper, who often appeared in the cartoon as herself.
Amazingly enough, none of the wrestlers provided his or her own voice for the cartoon. Apparently, the eloquence they showed in pre- and post-match interviews was too difficult to capture in a voice-over studio. Hogan's cartoon voice was performed by Brad Garrett, who would eventually find fame as Robert Barone on the popular CBS series Everybody Loves Raymond.
