Getting Animated

Sept. 14, 1985

The animated cartoon “Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling” debuts on CBS Saturday mornings, further cementing Hogan’s rise to prominence in American pop culture during the summer of 1985. Also a guest host of “Saturday Night Live” earlier in the year, Hogan appears on the covers of “Sports Illustrated,” “TV Guide” and “People” magazine in addition to “Rock ‘n’ Wrestling,” which runs wild for two seasons.
