Freakazoid is one of the first cartoons (outside the Simpsons or any other prime time cartoon) to really take funny to a new intelligent level. I feel like Freakazoid, along with the Animaniacs (both produced by Warner Brothers and Steven Spielberg) started a new wave of children’s cartoons in which adults could watch along and get as much – and in some cases more – out of the cartoon as the children.
My case in point, this episode of Freakazoid entitled Candle Jack. Whenever I get on the topic of underrated TV shows, this show and particular episode always seems to be a point of reference for me. It single-handedly opened up a new world of comedy for me and made me realize cartoons aren’t always just for kids. So enjoy this episode of Freakazoid.
