Quote1 The swamp is my world. It is who I am... it is what I am. I was once a man. I know the evil men do. Do not bring your evil here, I warn you. Beware the wrath of Swamp Thing! Quote2

Swamp Thing was a live-action television series that aired from July, 1990 to May of 1993, spanning three seasons and a total of seventy-two episodes. The series starred Dick Durock as the eponymous Swamp Thing. Durock also played the character in the 1982 Swamp Thing movie, as well as its less successful sequel, Return of the Swamp Thing. It is unclear if the television series takes place in an alternate continuity from the films, but the emergence of a younger Anton Arcane (played by Mark Lindsay Chapman), suggests that the series is separate from that of the movies.

  • Series aired at 10:30 pm on the USA Network from 1990-1993.
  • The short-lived Swamp Thing animated series first aired on April 20th, 1991, following the season one episode of the live-action series, "The Prometheus Parabola", which aired on April 5th. The final episode of the animated series aired on May 18th of that same year, prior to production of season two of the live-action series. Although the programs aired at different times, the Swamp Thing still holds the distinction of being the only DC Comics character-specific franchise to have two television programs in production simultaneously.
  • Early episodes were filmed at Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida.
  • The character of eleven-year-old Jim Kipp proved to be very unpopular with audiences, and he was soon replaced with his older stepbrother, Will.
