Episode 90 – Freakazoid!
After covering such an awful show subject last week we felt we needed a palate cleanser. Freakazoid! we are actually the requesters this week, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Freakazoid was a sort of accident pet project of Steven Spielberg, Bruce Timm, and Tom Ruegger that was cut far shorter than it should have been. How did such a smart and ingenious show get cancelled after only 2 short seasons? Would this show be successful today?
Freakazoid! is an American animated television series created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini and developed by Tom Ruegger for the Kids’ WB programming block of The WB. The series chronicles the adventures of the title character, Freakazoid, a manic, insane superhero who battles with an array of super villains. The show also features mini-episodes of adventures of other bizarre superheroes. The show was produced by Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation. The cartoon was the third animated series produced by the collaboration of Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animationduring the animation renaissance of the 1990s.
