It Came From YouTube: Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling cartoon episode

6 Submitted by on Tue, 12 November 2013, 00:00

Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling was a cartoon that aired for two seasons from 1985 to 1987 on CBS. It featured many WWF Superstars of the era including Hulk Hogan himself. None of the wrestlers provided their own voices for the animated segments and they sound nothing like the actual wrestlers. Well, “Hulk Hogan” sounds a little like him, I guess…

Above is the episode “Rowdy Reforms”.

The show was very silly and sometimes strange, but also a lot of mindless fun.

Several episodes were released on VHS…

But it hasn’t been released on DVD yet. Hey WWE; we Crappers would buy a Complete Series set of all 26 episodes in a heartbeat! What are you guys waiting for?

    Awesome stroll down memory lane. I know Brad Garett of “Everybidy Loves Raymond” fame was Hogan. The father from “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ” was JYD and somehow David Arguettes father was on the show playing Snuka I believe. Weird how Crap all comes together.

    Greatest cartoon show in history.*

    (*except for all the ones that were better)

    I was crushed when it first came out on tv and known of the boys did their own voice work. It seemed Moolah’s was the closest to what it should be. If only Sheiky baby did some cartoon humbling on the Hulkster. Can you imagine the fun if the Attitude Era had their own cartoon with Val almost getting his pee pee choppy choppied or a cartoon Katie Vick. What kid wouldn’t have loved to see Mae Young gove birth to a cartoon hand. The NWA could have had a cartoon where the Horsemen do the parking lot attack on Duth-tay with an Acme hammer to his hand. Or later for WCW Scott Steiner could have had his incident with the police just like the Rowdy episode only with more horrifying results.

    Is that Gorilla Monsoon at 3:20 in the first vid?

      I thought the same thing too, I was hoping he’d tell Piper if he didn’t cut it out in the courtroom he’d be, “Literally hanging from the rafters”. And I thought Mean Gene was the cop until Mean Gene showed up in the back of the police car. If only there could be a cartoon Todd Pettingzoo (oh wait he was a cartoon)

    Then Bonnie Tyler sampled the theme song.
