Stanley work at the local recreational center in the city of Oaktown. Whenever trouble threatens his homeboys, Stanley puts on his magical dancing shoes and is transformed into his super-heroic alter-ego, Hammerman! Written by
Hammuh-MAN Hammuh, Hammuh-MAN Hammuh, well I loved this show when I was a kid, I really did not like it then, but I loved MC Hammer, and I loved this show. The plots were not very good, but the music (for the time) was excellent, but I loved MC Hammer, I even liked his second album, Too Legit to Quit. There was no love lost when this show was cancelled but I still loved it for the time, after all I was only 10 years old.
In this show a man that strangely resembled James Brown gave unassuming Stanley Burrell (MC Hammer's name in real life) a pair of Magical Shoes, by a Hip-Hop Motown dude, together they had power that stood up for the right, and when he got in trouble they would give him all their might.And all of the evil would be stopped by this man and that's how Stanley became Hammuh-MAN'
I can't believe I remember that song, but that was the theme. The villains were cheesy and the show was predictable, and while I thought it was pretty good there was only a little love lost when it was cancelled, but like the career of MC Hammer this show left the spotlight with little fanfare. Even as a Saturday Morning cartoons go this was not very good. This is good mostly as a silly novelty show, and should you ever get the chance to watch it that is all you should take it as.
This show if I remember came on around 12:00 on ABC. I looked so forward to the show, and this was an attempt by ABC to revamp it's Saturday Morning Schedule after Ghostbusters and a few other shows were no longer on the air or producing the results as they once did. Obviously it did not work. The networks are tending not to produce cartoons for Saturday mornings anymore, and with cartoons at this level of quality it is easy to see why. Basically you should watch this cartoon two or three times just for the fun of it.
