Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N' Wrestling

Show Summary

Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N' Wrestling was an animated series that premiered on CBS on September 14, 1985. The series which lasted two seasons featured the animated comic adventures of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and his group of "good guy" friends who included fellow professional wrestlers Junkyard Dog, Captain Lou Albano, Andre The Giant, Hillybilly Jim, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Tito Santana, and Wendi Richter. The animated series also featured a group of selfish and greedy "bad guy" wrestlers led by "Rowdy" Roddy Piper that included Nikolia Volkoff, The Iron Sheik, Mr. Fuji, Big John Studd, and The Fabulous Moolah. Throughout the series run, these bad guy wrestlers often opposed Hogan and his friends in their adventures. Each episode of the series featured two fifteen minute cartoons and live action wrap-around segments which sometimes emphasized music or a lesson to be learned from the day's episode. The show was created following the breakthrough success of Hulk Hogan and the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment). At the time, the WWF featured Rock 'N' Wrestling which was a successful effort to cross-promote professional wrestling and rock 'n' roll that involved primarily pop-musician Cyndi Lauper. Although wrestlers were featured in the live action wrap around segments of the show, voice work for the show was done by professional voice actors and actresses. The last new episode of the show was broadcast on October 18, 1986. The show has since lived on in syndication and home video release.
