If this is for "fanboys and nerds," then put me in that section.
"Freakazoid!" was a blast from Richard Stone's demented theme music ("Super teen extraordinaire/Freakazoid, Freakazoid/Runs around in underwear/Freakazoid, Freakazoid...") to the credits; probably Steven Spielberg's best TV show not to involve Pinky and the Brain, this was too good to last long. And probably too skewed at serious fans for wide acceptance - but you could hardly call it run-of-the-mill. (The way Dexter Douglas became Freakazoid is better seen than described.)
Freakazoid's adventures, blended with a plethora of supporting cartoons (like "The Huntsman," whose cartoons were an intentional buildup to nothing; and the very British "Lord Bravery" - who in one episode tried to have his name registered but ended up becoming "Lord Smoked Meats And Fishes"... no, I wouldn't want to be rescued by someone with a name like that either!) and a very healthy dose of self-reverence and in-jokes for the fans - you won't find many supposedly kids' cartoons with gags about William Shatner ("They usually disappear AFTER I perform 'Rocket Man'") - were packed with invention, never predictable and filled with more jokes per show than most live-action sitcoms. Though as I said, not the most accessible show in the world... but those who get the gag will love it. I got it, and I do.
