"Swamp Thing! ...You are amazing!" - Opening Theme
Swamp Thing was a short lived television series that ran five episodes in 1991. The show featured the marsh superhero known as Swamp Thing. It was made by DIC Entertainment. The show even spawned a toyline and a video game that was based on the series.
The animated series rejects the popular Alan Moore revision of Swamp Thing's origin and portrays him with his original origin as a man turned into a plant-like entity.
