Action Man, produced by DiC Entertainment, was labelled as being in the genre of James Bond and Indiana Jones. Show creators claimed the show would "thrill both children and parents." The series was created using live-action footage to enhance the computer animation; DiC's sales promotions touted its "morphing techniques." DiC Entertainment ordered 26 episodes of thirty minutes length for the season.

Action Man was played by Mark Griffin, best known as "Trojan," from Gladiators, the British version of the United States hit sports show, American Gladiators. Devon Sawa, before his career took off, was one of the voice-over actors for various characters in the show.

A stage version of the television series was displayed from November 2007- January 2009, but was shut down due to lack of funding. Joken Hing played Action Man, alongside his arch enemy Dr. X as portrayed by Ramsay Jacobs.
