Series cast summary:
 Hulk Hogan / ... (2 episodes, 1985)


Cartoon series featuring the out-of-ring escapades of the stars of the World Wrestling Federation. Hulk Hogan and Mean Gene Okerlund led the "face," or good guys, team (which included Andre the Giant, Hillbilly Jim, Jimmy Snuka, Junkyard Dog, Tito Santana, Wendi Richter and Captain Lou Albano); while Rowdy Roddy Piper and his team of "heels," or bad guys (including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Big John Studd, Mr. Fuji, Bobby Heenan and the Fabulous Moolah), usually caused trouble. Intersperced between the cartoon segments were live-action comedy vignettes featuring the WWF cast. "Rock 'N' Wrestling" was among the WWF programs which helped the Vince McMahon-run promotion establish professional wrestling as "sports entertainment." Written by Brian Rathjen <>

Did You Know?


The series theme song, entitled "Hulk Hogan's Theme" and available on The Wrestling Album, was an edited instrumental version of Bonnie Tyler's song "Ravishing" from her Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire album. The theme, written by Jim Steinman, was also used by Hulk Hogan as his entrance music, prior to adopting "Real American" by Rick Derringer (which at the time was being used by the tag team of Mike Rotunda and Barry Windham).

This show was a great part of my childhood.
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember getting up on Saturdays when I was about 11 and watching all my favorite stars of the WWF both in animation and in real life. Now, granted, this wasn't any great foray into writing or acting, but that didn't matter. What matters now is thinking back on that time in my life and realizing it wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, as I was getting into it, my "rents" made me take this stupid karate class that to this day I resent simply because there was this show I enjoyed and it was taken away from me. Ah well. The important thing is I have this awesome memory. Seems to me if Hulk can survive on the big and small screen for almost 30 years he must be doing something right.
