The victim of a horrible crash on the information superhighway, Freakazoid is the humorous personification of information overload. His synapses constantly misfire, sending his thoughts and ideas streaking into various comic directions--and confounding villains with quips, non sequiturs and jokes, leaving them completely dumbfounded.]]>
Extras on the Freakazoid! Season 1 set were remarkably plentiful, but here, the key supplement is a lengthy (20 minutes) featurette titled "Liebselied fur Normandeus," which reunites many of the key players to discuss the joys and disappointments of the show’s final season. Commentaries are unfortunately relegated to "A Full Season’s Worth of Commentaries (In Five Minutes or Less)," which is exactly as it sounds: a brief roundtable of producers and writers giving an amiable chat about the season. It’s amusing, but highlights the real need for full commentaries on some of the best episodes contained here. A demo of composer Richard Stone’s brilliant "Bonjour Lobey" rounds out the bonus features. --Paul Gaita

The show only lasted two seasons on WB. Unlike these other Tom Ruegger shows, this one never really hit its stride, from the first peaking higher and crashing harder than most shows on the schedule. Season two might be more even, but that's also a misnomer. There are more stock characters to play off of from season one, the writers have carte blanche to do just about anything they can think of, pop culture references go whizzing by at dizzying speeds, while the shows themselves may seem to drag if you don't get the joke.
The show doesn't take itself seriously, but cartoon fans, movie buffs, and animation afficianados will have a field day pointing out parodies and tracking down tributes. One show starts with a parody of Bob Clampett's '60s series, Beany and Cecil. Another plays off the musical Hello Dolly. The show is constantly referential, as when Freakazoid, the Brain and Wacko all go see Spielberg to ask who has the best show. In the five minute bonus commentary, one of the writers remarks that the storylines are somewhat non-linear, revealing a gift for understatement. One could also say the episodes are metafictional, were one writing a thesis, or one could just enjoy the show.Read more ›

Freakazoid is a show that's made in very good taste. It has absolutely no dirty or vulgar material and as opposed to many of the modern cartoons, movies, animated films, and TV shows that try to be funny by being nasty and dirty, Freakazoid is funny in a good clean way.
The humor in Freakazoid relied heavily on slapstick, parody, and pop cultural references. It often has parodies of celebrities, other superheroes(such as Batman), movies, TV shows, or other works of fiction and forms of popular culture. A typically strange running gag involves a repeated credit for "Weena Mercator as the Hopping Woman", though no such character appears in any episode. Her credit is usually preceded by a number of other fictional names and followed by a fictional director.
If you like good humor, superheroes, parodies or just plain silliness, don't miss Freakazoid. Kids will appreciate the wackyness while teens and adults will enjoy the humor due to because most little kids would'nt really understand a majority of the humor and everyone enjoy the nicely drawn characters, each containing his/her own personality. People who watched Freakazoid would want this.
Oh Freak out!

It's really unfortunate that this show was only on for two seasons. These guys were completely out of their minds and carried on the Warner Brother's tradition of excellent, hilarious animation. A real treasure.
