If you're a fan of the spontaneous humor of the Animaniacs, then you'll love this show. Dexter Douglas uses the power of cyberspace to become the superhero Freakazoid (this was in the early days of the internet, so it seemed like a mysterious thing at the time). Unfortunately, Freakazoid isn't your normal superhero. Yes, he has superpowers (the funniest being when he flies by stretching his arms out and making wind noises as he runs around). Yes, he has supervillains. But he's not Batman by any means! He's fun and frantic and full of humor.

Each episode usually had one skit running throughout the show, with tiny sketches built into it like little commercial breaks. One of the best was "Frenching with Freakazoid", in which he would teach a French phrase. Most of them wouldn't be something you'd use in a normal conversation however ("Who cut the cheese?"). The frenetic pace of the show keeps it from being boring, and I'm so glad to see it finally make it to disc.

Superman has Lex Luthor, Batman has the Joker, and Freakazoid has Mo-Ron (yep, just like it sounds). Like I said earlier, if you're a fan of Animaniacs and Pinky & The Brain, this show will be a perfect fit for you. Never boring!

Check out nerd computer ace Dexter Douglas and his strong and super-quick lunatic alter-ego The Freakazoid in Freakazoid! - Season One. Not at all the straightforward superhero program Bruce Timm ("Batman: The Animated Series") had in mind when he conceived the show which was inspired by Mike Allred's Madman comic but Freakazoid! went on to become a cult, comedic hit just the same for its zany wit and humor. This 2-disc set contains all 14 uncut Season One episodes as originally aired (including repeats); 5.1 and 2.0 English audio; English subtitles; plus extras. Here are the episodes and how the discs will be configured.

Disc 1:
1. Five Day Forecast / Dance of Doom / Hand Man
2. Candle Jack / Toby Danger in Doomsday Bet / The Lobe
3. Mo-Ron / The Sewer Rescue / The Big Question / The Legends Who Lunch
4. And Fan Boy Is His Name / Lawn Gnomes: Ch. IV - Fun in the Sun / Freak's French Lesson
5. Foamy the Freakadog / Office Visit / Ode to Leonard Nimoy / Emergency Broadcast System
6. The Cloud / Candle Jack (repeat)

Disc 2, Side A:
7. The Chip (Acts I-III)
8. The Chip (Act IV) / Freakazoid is History
9. Hot Rods From Heck / A Time for Evil
10. Relax-O-Vision / Fatman and Boy Blubber/ Limbo Lock-up / Terror Palace
11. In Arms Way / The Cloud (repeat)

IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME!!!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that this is FINALLY being released on DVD. I never missed this show when it was on the WB. In fact, I woke up early to watch it ... and I'm definitely not known for waking up much before 11 on the weekends!

If I had one more wish, though, it would be that this set would've contained the complete series because the show didn't even last that long. Oh boy, oh boy ... I get to watch Fanboy to my little heart's content. "Sulu! I'm walkin' with Sulu!"

Think I'll go get a snowcone with Cosgrove. K, bye!

When Warner Bros. started up their own Saturday morning programming block in the form of the now-retired Kids' WB!, new shows were needed to fill up its schedule. One of those shows was "Freakazoid!", named for its zany titlular superhero. An example of this guy's wackiness is that, in the first episode, he draws a face on his right hand and calls it his new sidekick, then has it engage in a romantic relationship with his other hand. In a piece of irony, given the huge fandom it's gathered, fans of this show were reportedly hard to come by back when the show was originally airing. The show would eventually gain its cult status through its Cartoon Network reruns, but unfortunately for the fans, production on the series was now cancelled. "Freakazoid!" briefly reappeared on In2TV, during which Warner Home Video hinted that it was being considered for the DVD format, and now, about two years later, we're getting that in the form of this.

As with Tom Ruegger's other productions for WB Animation, I'm a big fan of the show, so you're probably wondering why I gave it four stars instead of five. Well, the answer lies in a problem I have that has suspiciously not been mentioned in any of the other reviews posted thus far. "Freakazoid!" only ran for 24 episodes, and as we've seen with some of their other DVD sets, Warner Home Video is clearly capable of putting that many episodes on one four-disc set. But for whatever reason, they decided to split this up over two seasonal sets. That doesn't make much sense to me, and it kinda puts the kibosh on a theory I'd been going with last year (that a "Freakazoid!" Complete Series set would be released alongside "Animaniacs"' final volume).
