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.

  • This was Hulk Hogan and his 'good guy' friends in animation. I loved watching this show and was surprised it did last two seasons. The mid 1980s was a boom for wrestling and the WWE took it to the animation screen as well.moreless

    I don't remember much from this cartoon, but I remember enjoying it. It was much easier to understand The Iron Sheik in a cartoon, then on WWE TV. Junk Yard Dog (JYD) was always there helping Hogan with Hillbilly Jim as well.



    This was truly a classic cartoon and I enjoyed watching it.
  • Hulk Hogan's Rock N Wrestling Is Awesome To The Max!!!

    This show rocks. I like Hulk Hogan. He Is Nice. I like when he rips his shirt off to the max. It makes me smile. I like to rip my shirt off. Shirt ripping makes mom mad. Mom said to not rip off my shirt before church. I said i'm a hulkamaniac so deal with it toots. Also, Tito Santana rocks. Macho Man Randy Savage is also rocking the night away. But, I don't think he is on this show, frowny face. Anyways I recommend this show to one and all. I would watch it forever and ever as the world turns. If only I Could. The Endmoreless

    Let me get this straight from the beginning, this series has absolutely nothing to do with wrestling. Back when I watched it, all I expected was a scene of wrestling or something, but they actually never seem to come.



    Here, what you will watch are daily situations that between Hulk Hogan and his friends, whose adventures are almost always sure to include events connected to Rowdy Piper and his own bunch of Hulk's foes.



    Probably I am correct when saying that this is just one of those series that tried to mime the sucess of its main character, because that is all your going to find here.



    Stick away from this, unless you are a major Hulk Hogan fan.moreless
