A professor of folklore opens a forbidden scroll and becomes possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning, who seek to return and dominate our world. The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense sends Hellboy and a team of agents to investigate, but when Hellboy picks up a samurai sword, he literally disappears into a weird wonderland of Japanese legends, ghosts and monsters. Meanwhile, BPRD agents Kate Corrigan and Russell Thorne are on the trail of the possessed professor to bring Hellboy back. Written by IDT

Trivia

David Hyde Pierce was offered the chance to reprise his role as the voice of Abe Sapien. But Pierce felt that Doug Jones' voice should have been used in Hellboy (2004) and he turned it down so that Jones would get the role. See more »

Goofs

We see the giant bat creature pin Abe to the ground, then the shot cuts away for a moment and then cuts back to the bat but Abe is now on his feet and several yards away from the creature when there wasn't time for him to get there. See more »

Hellboy: You're not a normal fox.
Fox: And you are not a normal man.
Hellboy: Really? What gave me away? Any idea why I'm here?
Fox: Do I look like a philosopher?
Hellboy: Nice.
Fox: You carry the sword of storms, and it has tasted the blood of demons. That is all you need to know. For now.
Hellboy: Sure, 'cause that's just so much to absorb all at once.
Fox: [leaving] Don't cut yourself.

Great adaptation of comic and movie
28 October 2006 | by (Newington, CT) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to this, and yet was still surprised to see it on TV so soon. I love the Hellboy comics and associated spin offs. I thought the movie was great, too. This cartoon version did a great job of bringing the feel of the comic to life, and as a bonus, Ron Perlman and Selma Blair from the movie version do the vocal work of their characters, respectively Hellboy and Liz Sherman. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the film but did not get to voice his character, which was done nicely by David Hyde Pierce, actually provides the voice for Abe Sapien here, and does a great job, too. The story is good, and much like the comic, focuses on the paranormal aspects of myth and folktale, in this case involving a Japanese sword. The animation was great, reminding me both of the comic art by Mike Mignola and the Batman, Superman, and Justice League animated series. I was very entertained. If you like either the comics or the movie, you should check it out, and if you like stories involving the paranormal a la the X-Files, you may very well love Hellboy, who brings a neat twist to investigating the paranormal.
