History

The show was animated and produced by DiC Entertainment.[2] It featured animated adventures of popular WWF stars from the time, including its title character Hulk Hogan. Hogan was the leader of the faces, or good guys, and Roddy Piper was the leader of the heels, or bad guys. The show followed predictable cartoon archetypes concerning good characters triumphing over evil-doers in wacky situations, typical of children's cartoons in the 1980s.

Rarely referenced, wrestling was simply a device to determine the good guys from the bad guys. The wrestlers themselves appeared in the live-action segments of the show; however, they did not provide the voices for their animated counterparts. These were instead performed by professional voice actors. One recurring live-action segment was the music video for the cover of "Land of a Thousand Dances" recorded by several WWF wrestlers for The Wrestling Album.

The theme to Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling is based on the Bonnie Tyler song, "Ravishing."

Due to the show being animated, and the longer production times that resulted, the show often failed to keep pace with the events of the WWF at the time. This resulted in certain wrestlers turning heel (or, in non-wrestling terms, a villain) in real life but remaining good guys on the cartoon, and vice versa. It also depicted Hogan as having a full head of hair, as opposed to the noticeably receding hairline he sported in the ring.

History

The show was animated and produced by DiC Entertainment.[2] It featured animated adventures of popular WWF stars from the time, including its title character Hulk Hogan and his group of wrestlers fighting against a group of rogue wrestlers led by Roddy Piper.

Hulk Hogan was the leader of the faces or good guys consisting of Junkyard Dog, Captain Lou Albano, André the Giant, Wendi Richter, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Hillbilly Jim, and Tito Santana.

Roddy Piper was the leader of the heels, or bad guys consisting of Iron Shiek, Nikolai Volkoff, The Fabulous Moolah, Big John Studd, and Mr. Fuji. The show followed predictable cartoon archetypes concerning good characters triumphing over evil-doers in wacky situations, typical of children's cartoons in the 1980s.

Rarely referenced, wrestling was simply a device to determine the good guys from the bad guys. The wrestlers themselves appeared in the live-action segments of the show; however, they did not provide the voices for their animated counterparts.
