Freakazoid! -2nd and Final Season of the Spielberg-Produced Animated Series
Two-disc set coming on April 21st with a nice bunch of extras
Posted by David Lambert
Dexter Douglas is a mild-mannered teenager who, while logged onto the Internet one Christmas, is thrust into a horrible crash on the information superhighway and transformed into an electrifying superhero. He's average, predictable, the middle of the bell curve and the center of the silent majority, which most consider completely dull and boring; the type of person who just blends into the crowd.
However, all this changes when he turns into the Freakazoid, a lightning haired superhero who wears red underwear and uses his new abilities to fight evil and do battle with villains such as the Lobe. That is, unless Cosgrove, his best friend and chief of police, can suggest something better to do. With his many trusted sidekicks, his fabulous Freakalair and his girlfriend Steph by his side, he's ready to save the day...that is, unless there's something better on TV.
Warner Home Video is preparing an April 21st DVD release for Steven Spielberg's Freakazoid! - Season 2. These 11 episodes finish out the animated series, and the 2-disc set will also contain extras in the form of "a full season's worth of commentaries," "a look back at creating the final episode" and "Richard Stone - Original Bonjour Lobey Demo Tape." Cost is $26.99 for 242 minutes presented in full screen video with English audio. We've got a small look at the cover art to the right; stay tuned for a larger look as soon as it's available!
