    Anyone remember this short lived show from 1983?

    Don't remember much from the show itself, it's been over 30 years, since it was last on air, here in Sweden, but I do remember those cool transformation sequences. And i just stumbled upon some clips on youtube, when searching for old TV-shows, that I used to watch back in the 80:s.

    Pretty damn good, considering they did it on a TV budget.

    This was the best one:


    Found a few more:



    Also found an episode of a show called Nightman (never watched it) where Mr Chase shows up, but they sadly used the cheapest CGI morph ever, for the transformations.

    This makes think of that short lived Fox t.v. show with the werewolf...possibly called "Werewolf"?...I think it aired around the same time as "21 Jump Street" and "Married...With Children"..."Manimal" aired a good 4-6 years prior, I believe...

    Shout! Factory originally had Werewolf: The Complete Series scheduled for release in a DVD set back in 2009, but unfortunately it was cancelled due to way too many music rights licensing issues they couldn't sort out since the music tracks were married to the video, so there weren't going to be exercising full scenes from the show.
