Dog of the Geek: Wolfie!

wolfieBreed: Werewolf

Original Appearances: Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Filmation/CBS 1970)

Other Appearances: Groovie Goolies (Filmation/CBS 1971)

Biography: Wolfie was a hippie werewolf who supervised recreation at the Groovie Goolies' home, Horrible Hall, often getting on Drac's nerves. Wolfie tended to drive inside the mansion in his Wolf-Wagon, or zoom around on a skateboard.

Powers: Wolfie was not a typical werewolf – indeed, he did not seem to have a human form to transform “back” to, being Wolfie all the time. However, one would imagine that Wolfie's strength, speed and agility were greater than that of an ordinary human.

Group Affiliation: Groovie Goolies

Miscellaneous: Howard Morris' voice for Wolfie was an impersonation of Wolfman Jack. Apparently, there was an idea originally to feature a human identity for Wolfie, but this was wisely discarded!

  2. Larry did do a lot of voicework for Filmation, but that wasn't one of his roles!
