Hairy Palms are just the start of Scott Howard's problems. He already has girl problems, yearning for a fellow female classmate's attention, his school basketball team can't win any matches and rapidly reaching his late teens he feels too "normal". However, with a full moon approaching Scott starts to feel different and when the "dog whistle" blows he realizes he's not "normal" after all. The Teen Wolf is finally born, claws and "Bee Gee" style hairdo and to his surprise finds that being a werewolf is in the family blood, just that his father, Harold Howard, was hoping it might have "skipped a generation". Ensuing pressure on the basketball front brings the Teen Wolf to the public's attention and for a while he can do no wrong in the whole of the school's eyes, in fact he doesn't miss a shot! His best friend, Stiles, sees money making opportunities and even Pamela Wells, the teen temptress he longed to date, finally gives him something to howl about. Before long things take a turn and the Wolf's persona takes a few knocks on and off court and his popularity is questioned. But the only person who knows that the real Scott should prevail is Boof, his childhood best friend.
