Saturday Morning Cartoons: HAMMERMAN

One year after the release of ‘Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em‘, the album that gave MC Hammer his 15-minutes of fame and drove parachute pants’ stock sky-high, ABC would launch the cartoon dedicated to the scuttling one-hit wonder, Hammerman.

Hosted by the man himself, the humble Stanley Burrell by day, MC Hammer’s real name, works in a youth rec center in Oakton; but when danger rears its ugly head at his “homeboys,” Stanley puts on his magical, live, talking dancing shoes and transforms in the superhero Hammerman. With a helping hand from ‘Gramps’, previous dancing superhero by the alias of Soulman, Hammerman would tackle an array of social issues and attempted to teach children effective ways of handling them.

Hammerman would boast a whopping 13-episodes before ultimately folding months after its debut. Although the show was short-lived, it would somehow remain memorable to kids of the early ’90s — oddly echoing Hammer’s musical career.

    All Stars! I recently was reminded that existed and had a whole marathon of what I could find. Expect that as a future addition to SMC.
