Swamp Thing 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.

Anton Arcane takes the role of the main villain responsible for Alec Holland's transformation into Swamp Thing. Arcane is backed by his gang of Un-Men: Dr. Deemo, Weedkiller, and Skinman.

Swamp Thing also has two friends named Tomahawk and Bayou Jack. Tomahawk is Native American.[1] Bayou Jack is a Vietnam veteran.
