CULT FACTION

For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf (aka The Cartoon Adventures of Teen Wolf) spun out from the Michael J. Fox hit movie of the same name and hit the television in September 1986 and ran for two seasons (21 episodes).

Like the movie, the cartoon follows Scott Howard (voiced by Townsend Coleman) – a teenage boy who hits puberty and discovers his family who can transform into werewolves. Unlike the movie the cartoon is set in the fictional town of Wolverton, a small town that draws tourists because of its history of werewolf sightings. Also unlike the film, Scott’s status as a werewolf is a secret. James Hampton reprised his movie role as Scott’s father Harold Howard.

Throughout the cartoon series Scott never hurt anybody while he was a werewolf. They writers made a big point to show that Scott was conscious of his difference from other teenagers and had to make accommodations for himself. They also touched on racism in the way that Scott expressed frustration that the residents of this town had stereotyped “his people.”
