What is with some of these character designs? Tony Stark with blue hair and a Fu Manchu stache, green skin Mandarin, Fin Fang Foom's terrifying face and Hulk's face which lingers on the edge of the uncanny valley. I really don't get it.

@Nightmare Crusher I finished the entire series a few weeks ago, I think I might be able to answer at least one of your questions, but I'll try with the others as well.

As far as Tony Stark having blue hair goes, he actually originally had short black hair in season 1, the blue hair was a change made in season 2. I have no idea why they did it but according to Wikipedia:

"Tony Stark's longer hair style in the second season was based upon the artist Mark Bright's depiction of Stark from the late 1980s, which is where most of the episodes from Season 2 were based upon."

No idea if that's true or not, I also don't know why they made it blue but in all honesty it didn't bother me that much.

The Mandarin having green skin...I have no clue, apparently it was a common thing to portray Asian villains with green skin back then, but I really don't know why. As far as explanations in the show itself go, all I know is that he had normal skin before taking the rings at which point he became more muscular, got his current outfit, and again gained green skin, all because of the power of the rings.

Fin Fang Foom's face...again, I have no idea, I'm guessing it was to get him to "look more like a dragon" but that's just an assumption on my part and in all honesty he looks more like a strange mutated version of the Creature from the Black Lagoon with donkey teeth than a dragon.

The Hulk's face...hate to be repetitive but I have no idea. Again I assume it was to keep Bruce Banner's facial structure but I have nothing to confirm that at all and it didn't really turn out for the better, and that's really weird since that was one of the last episodes of season 2 which generally had much better animation and stories than the first season. (Which was really only good to laugh at how hilariously bad it was.)

Not sure if any of that answered your questions at all or not...but if it didn't here's a GIF my friend Agent Jin ripped from the show after I requested it, Tony Stark dancing ridiculously!

@Nightmare Crusher @Metabad I think I can explain blue haired Stark.

If you have read pre-2000s comic books, you'll notice that a lot of black-haired characters have some blue colored sections in their hair. I think the blueish hair that Stark has may have been done to give his design a more comic book type of look.

Greenskin Mandarin: no idea.

Off-topic: Green villains were very common in the second and third seasons of the 67 Spidey cartoon.

Fing Fang Foom: I've asked myself the same question.

Hulk: Dunno. But he definerly looks better than his 1994 Fantastic Four appearance (which one of my friends described it looking like an overgrown baby on steroids).

Why was President Bill Clinton a recurring role?

@coolgeek176 Because he was President at the time this was made?

@coolgeek176 Because he was a 'character' that appeared in the show on a recurring basis. That's pretty much the definition of "Recurring character in the 1994 Iron Man series". :p
