Product Description

Frisky Dingo: Season 1 (DVD)

One of the most curious animated series to come from the Adult Swim stable, Frisky Dingo might be best described as a cartoon superhero take on Seinfeld's formula: a show that's about nothing, but one that's also funny and fascinating all the same. The brainchild of Sealab 2021 creators Matt Thompson and Adam Reed, the premise of Frisky Dingo concerns millionaire playboy Xander Crews, who moonlights as costumed crime fighter Awesome-X. Having vanquished his last archvillain, Crews is urged by his employees to return to his office to sort out the financial mess created by his alter ego. But the arrival of the monstrous Killface and his Annihilatrix (which will pull the launch the Earth into the sun) lures him back into… well, not so much action as lots and lots of paperwork. The resulting episodes of Season 1 concern Crews and Killface's attempts to fund their respective projects while dealing with distractions like Simon, Killface's incorrigible son, and Crews' exasperated second in command Stan. To say that Frisky Dingo is unlike any other superhero series on television (and very few animated series in general) is a distinct understatement, but there's a method behind the madness: that the vagaries of life often get in the way of the loftiest of goals. Of course, that doesn't explain the show's endless non sequiters and moments of true surrealism, like Awesome-X's clueless henchmen, the X-tacles, or episodes like "Emergency Room," in which the entire cast of characters spends the full running time suffering from various horrible injuries. Maybe it's best to think of this as meta-superhero action. All 13 episodes of Frisky Dingo's debut season are compiled on this single disc (each episode runs just 11 minutes), but sadly, no supplemental features are included. That's unfortunate, if for no other reason than they might have provided some sort of explanation for the show's motives. -- Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but no extras on this disc March 26, 2008
While I fully agree with all of the other reviewers here who reviewed the series - rather than the actual DVD - I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of any video extras. There are 11 episodes on the disc and nothing more. The 'Welcome to You're "Doom"' postcard (a funny in-joke) was interesting, but more insight into the origins of the show and its making would have been more appreciated. Hopefully we'll get more value in future Adult Swim DVD releases (but please, no more "commentaries" that have nothing to do with the show).

5.0 out of 5 stars "Go Time!" January 16, 2008
From Sealab 2021 creators Matt Thompson and Adam Reed, Frisky Dingo takes the superhero spoof to new levels. Frisky Dingo introduces us to murderous supervillain Killface (who can be seen on the cover of the DVD set) who has plans to annihilate humankind. All that stands in his way is Awesome X, the superhero alter-ego of billionaire tycoon Xander Crews, and his incredibly inept team of X-ticles. As said before, Frisky Dingo is from the creators of Sealab 2021, so you can expect the same kind of ridiculous, insane, hilarity to be more than prevelant here. The animation is a step above and beyond what has been seen on Adult Swim in recent times, and the show features some of the absolute funniest dialogue and visual gags you will ever see from an original Adult Swim series. Along with Metalocaplypse, Frisky Dingo is the best newer show to hit Adult Swim in years, and this first season DVD set is sheer proof of that. An essential addition to any and every Adult Swim fan's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars From NASA! February 23, 2008
This is a pop culture masterpiece. Every time I watch this, I crack up. Well drawn and excellent writing. I almost do not want to watch season two because this one is so excellent. Dark humor, not for kids.
There are so many great lines in this I cannot even begin to quote.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites May 22, 2008
Frisky Dingo is my second favorite comedy series of all time (so far), right behind Black Adder.

I wonder if F.D.'s creators were into Black Adder, by the way, because the former's wonderfully rich insults and exclamations remind me of the latter's steady stream of what seemed liked hundreds of outrageous phrases (e.g., "He's as thick as whale omelet" or "Death and gloom stalk our land like two big stalking things"). In Frisky Dingo, phrases like "Well, I know how to not let my son run off in a pair of robo pants with a fist full of knives!!" and "ok disembodied GPS lady" and "Once again the mall has become my Waterloo" give the show a wonderful rhythm and spice missing from the vast majority of comedy.

The writing for the gruff single-minded Stan, the American corporate executive running the Crews Corporation for its reckless heir, Xander Crews, is another example of the kind of rich writing I find extremely entertaining in Frisky Dingo. Exasperated at Xander Crews for nearly ruining his corporation, Stan utters the line, "for 250 years, from slavery and smallpox blankets to soft-core porn and semiconductors, this corporation has always made a profit..." [close paraphrase] My stomach hurt from laughing. Stan's awkward time-consuming mangled attempt to sound like a superhero before flying off in pilfered rocket boots also was brilliant and fit his character well.

The show's use of violence is interesting. Some characters react the way a real human would -- with shock, numbness and terror (e.g., the initial reactions of Valerie, aka Val, and Sin's reaction to her lover Riley getting throttled by Killface).

5.0 out of 5 stars Kakow! December 28, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wholly agree with Jared's review. This is an Adult Swim gem that I have been eagerly awaiting the DVD release. A must have to any collection and laugh-out-loud hilarious. My roomates and I quote this show all the time. Will quickly become a side-splitting inside joke with anyone you share with. If you want a full break-down of characters and plot, Wikipedia the title. Im just here to tell you this show rocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars God, Those Are Some Huge Pants... March 16, 2008
And this is some awesome television. Frisky Dingo = Best. Show. Ever. You watch the first few episodes and think 'Oh, fun take on super-heroes/villains... how DO they finance all of their crazy machinations and vigilante hijinks?'

Then you're introduced to an ever-expanding cast of hilarious characters whose plot lines begin to intersect and weave into each other in increasingly unpredictable and gut-bustingly comic ways. Killface is the best comic 'toon villain to come out of television since Stewie Griffin.

Then you step back from the absurdity and good fun to realize that Frisky Dingo is also a meticulously plotted and well-executed show for its breed on a network where the standard doesn't need to be very high to at least score a pilot and a few episodes. Adam Reed and crew go above and beyond and definitely deserve a resounding B00SH and/or KA-KOW!

Yeah that's right, 'b00sh' is spelled with zeros.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. March 24, 2008
Pretty much one of the funniest shows of all time, but definitely not for everyone. The humor is crude and extremely unique, but if you're into it, then it's the greatest.

What the H*ll does "Booosh!" mean?
I've read that it's based on the sound the X-tacles' laser guns make, but somehow it's caught on with everyone in... "the town."
