Swamp Thing is an American animated television program based on the DC Comics comic book character Swamp Thing, who was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson in 1971. The series was produced by DiC Entertainment and aired for only one season on FOX, spanning a total of just five episodes. Like previous film incarnations of Swamp Thing, 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: Doctor Deemo, Weedkiller, and Skinman. Swamp Thing also has two friends named Tomahawk and Bayou Jack.
