Freakazoid! 

Washington, D.C. has a new defender: Freakazoid. The comedy and insanity never stop when he's around, and he's only one of the weird heroes of the series. It's better than a nice tub of good things.

Trivia

In season two, episode two, "The Freakazoid," Freakazoid gets into an argument with Wakko Warner (from Animaniacs (1993)) and the Brain (from Pinky and the Brain (1995)) about which of their shows is the favorite of Steven Spielberg. During this argument, Freakazoid claims that he is Steven's favorite, because he got a memo. This joke is based on a real memo that Paul Rugg (Writer and voice of Freakazoid) recieved from Spielberg while working as a writer on Animaniacs (1993). See more »

I miss it SOOOOO much.
3 March 2000 | by Kai-18See all my reviews

Every episode is packed to the gills with hilarity! Not only are the Freakazoid bits brilliant but so are the rest: Toby Danger, Lawn Gnomes, Huntsmen, Lord Bravery (think the Monty Python of Heroes), and everything else rules. Also the voice actors are great, like Ed Asner as Cosgrove and Jonothan Harris (AKA Dr. Smith from Lost in Space). One of the best cartoons but was aimed for the wrong audience. Great songs, likable hilarious characters (like Lobe: the villain with a low self-esteem and Cosgrove whose easily distracted by various things), wonderfully brilliant yet strange stories, jokes galore, homages and spoofs, great use of Stock footage for comedy. BRING IT BACK!
