In the episode "The Freakazoid," Freakazoid gets into an argument with Wakko Warner (from "Animaniacs") and the Brain (from "Pinky and the Brain") about which of their shows is the favorite of producer 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." See more »
Freakazoid! is not as well known as Tiny Toons or Animaniacs, but was at least their equal in laughs and creativity. It was a great show with hilarious characters, a mix of sly, self-referential humor and utter absurdity. The quality of the animation varied wildly from episode to episode, possibly the latter shows were created more cheaply to stretch the budget when they found out they were not being renewed. Whereas the animation did fluctuate, the writing was never less than inspired. Highlights include the Johnny Quest parody, the running "poo gas" joke, and any episode with the Lobe. My favorite is a short piece featuring Freakazoid's new sidekick, a sock puppet. This episode is laugh out loud funny with innuendo I'm amazed got past the censor. Try and catch any episodes if Cartoon Network again reruns them, or if, miraculously, a DVD is released. They are well worth it.
