    WHENEVER THERE'S A CRIME, SOME CROOKS ARE GONNA DO TIME

    THEY ALL BETTER BEWARE, CAUSE THE HAMMERMAN WILL BE THERE



    HERE'S HOW IT STARTED, A LONG TIME AGO

    THE LEGEND OF THE HAMMER AND HOW IT BEGAN TO GROW

    HE WAS GIVEN MAGICAL SHOES FROM A HIP HOP MOTEL DUDE

    TOGETHER, THEY HAD POWER, THEY STOOD FOR WHAT WAS RIGHT

    BUT GRAMPS WAS GETTING OLD, AND HE COULDN'T KEEP UP THE FIGHT

    SO GRAMPS AND HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, THEY WENT OUT ON THE ROAD

    TO FIND A MAN THEY KNEW COULD TELL WHO WAS WORTHY OF THE LOAD



    THEY MET A GUY NAMED STANLEY, WHO WAS DANCIN' EVERY NIGHT

    HE HELPED THE KIDS PLAY EVERY DAY, HIS HEART WAS OUT OF SIGHT

    SO GRAMPS OPENED UP THE BAG, AND TOOK OUT THE MAGICAL SHOES

    HE SET THEM ON THE GROUND, AND THEY SOON BEGAN TO GROOVE

    THE SHOES KNEW AT ONCE, THEY HAD FINALLY FOUND THEIR MAN

    THEY HOPPED RIGHT ON HIS FEET, AND HE BECAME HAMMERMAN

  • A good example of why pop icons do not make good cartoon characters.

    There is a limit to how much we can take of one person, and in the early 90's, that limit was overshot my a mile with the MC Hammer franchise. Hammer was everywhere. You could not flip on the television without seeing a Hammer commercial..for everything from Taco Bell to the shoes on your feet. Hammer was either wearing it, eating it, drinking it, or using it. It's funny now to look back on those days, when a rapper was a sell-out for signing endorsement deals..These days you are not a pop icon if you don't have at least 3 endorsement deals! Anyway, back to the show. "Hammerman" was an attempt to capitalize on the buzz of the times. With Hammer on the legs of his second major tour, ABC decided to reach out to the youth of Amercia with the newest superhero. For some reason, the show did not fair as well as the network would have liked, and the dancing superhero was not widely accepted as planned. Could also have had something to do with the downhill spiral that was already taking place with the real life Hammer empire. Unfortunately for ABC and Hammer, there was no real life superhero to save Hammer from his reckless financial exploits and dwindling sales.
