Street Fighter: The Animated Series was featured on the USA Network's Action Extreme Team. Based mostly off of the Street Fighter movie and the fighting game Street Fighter II, the series follows the events after the movie. William F. Guile leads a team of international fighters by their code name: Street Fighter. The Street Fighters' mission is to fight against international crime and terrorism. Usually, Guile and crew have to deal with Shadoloo, led by the insane General M. Bison.

Aside from Guile, the Street Fighter team consists of Blanka, Chun-Li, Ryu, Ken, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Fei Long, Cammy, Dee Jay, and T. Hawk. Bison's minions in Shadoloo consist of Zangief, Balrog, Vega and Sagat. The dark Ansatsuken master, Akuma, initially from Super Street Fighter II Turbo, was also featured.

While many feel that the cartoon was much better than the movie, some fans and critics thought the show was campy and borrowed from G.I. Joe. Street Fighter ran for two seasons (October 21, 1995 - May 14, 1997) with a total of 26 episodes.
