31 Werewolves | Drak Pack



Hanna Barbera's monsters-as-superheroes cartoon, Drak Pack lasted a couple of seasons on CBS Saturday mornings in the early '80s. If features three high school students - Drak, Frankie, and Howler - who are actually descendants of classic monsters and "dedicated to reversing the evil image of their forefathers" by fighting the evil supervillain group, O.G.R.E.

When trouble appears, the three friends give each other the Drak Whack and transform into monster form. In keeping with the superhero theme, they have a flying, amphibious car and each of them has superpowers appropriate to his heritage. Drak's a telekinetic shape-changer, Frankie is super strong with electrical powers, and Howler the werewolf has a sonic howl and super breath.

LOVED this when I was a kid. And I thought it was going to last forever. Bet it ran like, what, 10 episodes? Looked it up, ran 16 episodes. Seemed like more. Wish it HAD been more!
