Did You Know?


The sudden change in the werewolf makeup during the first season was due to actor Brandon Quinn's allergic reaction to the original makeup. See more »


Throughout out the series, it's clear that the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers themselves someone they can look up too. See more »


Mr. Geiger: [holding up ink blots] Just tell me what you see.
Merton: It looks like a bat.
Mr. Geiger: Very good. And now?
Merton: Bat.
Mr. Geiger: And?
Merton: Bat... bat... A lonely boy, failing to please his demanding father at every turn.
Mr. Geiger: Wait, that one's upside-down.

A Classic Story
26 March 2003 | by PopRox9139See all my reviews

Who hasn't heard the classic tale of jock meets wolf, jock gets bit by wolf and becomes a werewolf, jock meets goth, jock and goth become buds and encounter supernatural spookies? Still with me? That's pretty much the summary of Big Wolf on Campus, still one of the funniest shows ever. They spoofed on everything from telekinesis to witchy sororities, not to mention two Lost Boys spoofs with special guests Coreys Feldman and Haim. I especially liked the Muffy the Werewolf Slayer spoof. Other than overusing the word spoof, all that I have to say is that this was a really good show that was unfortunately cancelled because Fox Family changed to ABC Family and was taken over completely by Nazi Germany, I mean the Olsen twins. Bring back Big Wolf! Please? Pretty please??????
