Storyline

Xander Crews is a billionaire playboy whose alter ego is the superhero Awesome X. He'd much rather goof around as a superhero than tend to the everyday aspects of running a corporation. The only problem is that Awesome X has gotten rid of every super-villain in the city, and now his board head Stan wants him to retire as a hero and get down to saving the company he's been running into the ground with his superhero expenses. Coincidentally, a new super-villain named Killface appears. His goal is to destroy humanity using the Annihilatrix, a machine which upon completion will hurl the earth into the sun. The only problem is that he has no way of getting the 12 billion dollars needed to complete his doomsday device. Luckily there happens to be a billionaire playboy in town... Written by robojif

Trivia

The show was originally titled "Whiskey Tango". But a band with the same name already owned the merchandising rights for the name. The main characters were going to be a group of superheroes called Whiskey Tango Six. The creators then came up with the phrase "Frisky Dingo" as Killface's taunt to the Whiskey Tango Six and it became the new title. The Whiskey Tango Six characters were dropped during pre-production but the title stuck. See more »

Coooooooooooodyyyyy!
19 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frisky Dingo is a weird, weird cartoon. Not even Adult Swim weird: it superficially fits into that structure but makes it crack at the seams and bow to its own ambitions. At time there seems to be a running bet as to how many plot lines they can squeeze into one eleven-minute episode, while still making every one of those minutes full of hilarious jokes.

And the jokes are pretty great. There are some mighty one-liners, but even better than that is a gradual flow of jokes and counter-jokes between characters that only build on themselves. The characters themselves also lend themselves well to comedy, with the principal duo being every bit as ridiculous as more minor characters like Wendell the union thug or Artie the lovestruck crab mutant.

As for the long-form narrative, it has a lot of funny twists, but it seems like more of a balancing act than an actual story, and there are times when you just wish they would let a character go for once. The animation is also about as basic as it gets, and I'm not sure the cheapo aesthetic entirely fits the feel of the show. Adam Reed's follow-up series Archer gets these elements a lot better, but Frisky Dingo is perhaps more purely funny. Each season is only a couple hours put together, and you could do a lot worse than spending those hours laughing your ass off.
