Wolverine TV: Spider-Man and His Amazing (Australian) Friends

Wolverine Files features every single Wolverine’s TV appearances in order, starting with…

Wolverine’s very first appearance on television came on September 25, 1982 in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The second season episode, A Firestar Is Born, featured the X-Men with Neil Ross providing the voice of Wolverine. It was a decidedly different voice than fans had been expecting.

Take a look (and a listen) below…

This being 1980s Saturday Morning cartoons, Wolverine couldn’t be expected to do much with his razor-sharp claws, but enjoy (if you can), the fight to close the episode.

Or as Cyclops states, “Ju-u-ugge-ernaaaut!!”

For the completist, Wolverine did cameo ever so briefly at the end of a third season episode, “Education of a Superhero,” but failed to make the cut in the final X-Men appearance of the series in “The X-Men Adventure,” being replaced by a surprisingly spry (and presumably resurrected) Thunderbird.

Next on Wolverine TV: Pryde of the (Australian) X-Men

Oh wow. Cyclops’s voice was epic. I remember being so mad that Wolverine got his claws stuck in the wall. I even started to wonder if that was possible. XD

This brings back so many memories. I can’t wait to hear your opinion on the other cartoon and movie appearances made by Wolverine. Good job Dig !!
