Was a show loosely based on Troma's blood and gore flick the Toxic Avenger. The show aired in 1991 and was unfortunately pulled before all 13 season 1 episodes could air. Only 5 of the episodes aired on TV. The story is about a nerd Melvin Junko who falls into toxic sludge and becomes a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength. He decides to do battle for justice and right the wrongs against pollution on our earth.

Fred Wolf Films is an American animation studio founded in the 1960s by Fred Wolf and Jimmy Murakami (the latter of whom worked on the TV special The Snowman). It was founded as MW (Murakami-Wolf). The studio produced The Point, the first U.S. animated special to air in prime time (on the ABC network in 1971). It was also responsible for Free to Be… You and Me, the Puff the Magic Dragon specials, and television series such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Toxic Crusaders, Alvin and The Chipmunks (eleven episodes from the sixth season), James Bond Jr., The New Adventures of Speed Racer, and Sarah Ferguson's Budgie the Little Helicopter. It was named for founders Jimmy Murakami and Fred Wolf, and for partner Charles Swenson. It later became known as MWS (Murakami-Wolf-Swenson; with Charles Swenson who had already been with the company for some time) and even later as MWD (Murakami-Wolf-Dublin) before eventually adopting its current name. From 1989 to 2000, they also operated a subsidiary, Fred Wolf Films Dublin, located in Dublin, Ireland.
