Hey there, Canadian Bulldog Jr. here with a new cartoon review!
So, while looking for some new wrestling-related cartoon to review, I stumbled across a series called "Hulk Hogan's Rock N' Wrestling". If you grew up in the 80s, chances are you remember this thing. If not, I'll give you a brief summary of the series:
Imagine a twisted, nightmarish universe where all logic and reason has been devoured by some evil hellspawn that has proceeded to vomit the logic and reason out, eat it again, and repeat this horrid process nineteen-billion times. In this wretched realm, your only guide to navigate through this universe is what appears to be Hulk Hogan, but he sounds like the brother from "Everyone Loves Raymond".
Sounds like a fun time, right? Like the majority of 80s cartoons, it was terrible and lacked any sense/actual writers (I'm assuming these were manatees with idea balls). I didn't lack enough brain cells to sit through the entire series, so I come to you today with a review of one episode: "Ballot Box Boneheads".
Hey, kids! Do you want to see Hulk Hogan and all of your favorite wrestlers choose an electoral candidate, and then through various campaign trails, public rallies, and town hall meetings, rely on the system of democracy to ensure that their preferred candidtae is the one who receives the majority of the votes? You DO? Well, you must've been a pretty boring kid. And that was what the entire cartoon was. Well, what the cartoon would've been, rather, if it made any sense.
So it starts out with the Hulkster and his friends getting charged a "hot dog tax". No, I am not making this up. I just quoted the show. Yes, it is too late to bail on this review. Believe me, I would've if that was an option. When they start to wonder why they suddenly have to pay taxes for random things, they come to a conclusion: the current mayor of whatever town these people live in, Mayor Phelps, must be the root cause of this. Here's a picture of this guy:
