This series follows the adventures of Sherman Fangsworth, a teenager who is cursed with the ability to change into a werewolf at the sight of a full moon, even if it is only a picture of one. Together with his friends, they investigate various mysteries and crimes they encounter and find themselves facing dangers that require the power of Sherman's werewolf form as Fang-face to cope.

[Opening title narration]
Narrator: Fangface! Every 400 years, a baby werewolf is born into the Fangsworth family. And so when the moon shined on little Sherman Fangsworth, he changed into Fangface, a werewolf. Only the sun can change him back to normal. And so little Fangs grew up and teamed up with three daring teenagers: Kim, Biff, and Puggsy. And together they find danger, excitement, and adventure. Who can save the day? Who can wrong the rights, and right the wrongs? None other than Fangface!

an old-school cartoon with a old-school formula
8 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this show as part of the Plastic Man show way back in the mid-80's as a little kid. If you've seen Scooby -Doo, then be prepared for yet another spinoff/takeoff of the show. In the "beloved pet/supersleuth" role, is Fangs, known as Fangface the Werewolf when he looks at the moon (he changes back when he looks at the sun, of course....and has no idea what happened.) In the "Shaggy/friend of pet sleuth" role is Pugs. The only thing missing is a Velma translation......maybe it's combined with the Daphne character in the female member of the group. Just another weak Scooby rip-off, avoid at all costs.
