Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Which were funnier: the stream-of-consciousness skit-based episodes or the more structured, story-driven 20-minute episodes? In general, most fans like both, but there's some debate over whether or not the story ones have the same charm as the skit ones.

%%* * WeirdAlEffect: Roddy [=MacStew=].How many kids recognized the "Sneaking Song" from "The Island of Doctor Mystico" as "Carefully on Tiptoe Stealing" from ''Theatre/HMSPinafore''? Humorously enough, Paul Rugg would later direct an ammeter production of it!

* GrowingTheBeard: Episode six, when the show dropped the skits and starting focusing solely on episodes with real stories in them that developed Freakazoid's main cast.

* MisaimedMarketing: The show's incredibly clever humor proved its downfall. The network promised to deliver the 2-11 demographic to advertisers. It flopped with them, but did well with the 18-34 demographic. Attempts to suggest to TheWB to market it as such [[ScrewedByTheNetwork were completely ignored]] and the show was canceled as a result.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehw5YH9wEDY One episode "The Chip, Part 2" ended with a video of a man wrestling with a bear for no reason]], other than that the narrator in the prologue if only because [[AsHimself Dr. Jack Valenti]] said it would.would be featured in the story's prologue.



** In the episode ''And Fan Boy Is His Name'', Freakazoid tries to bargain with Fan Boy to leave him alone by offering an autograph picture of Creator/StanLee and then both dismissing him as someone they never heard of. Fan Boy only leaves Freakazoid when he finds Creator/MarkHamill signing autographs. Now, when you think about it, the routine was funny in and of itself in the 90's because Stan Lee created Creator/MarvelComics, the biggest rival of Warner Brothers owned Creator/DCComics, and Franchise/StarWars movies were distributed by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, one of Warner Brother's oldest rivals. However, by 2012, both Marvel AND Star Wars were acquired by [[Creator/{{Disney}} Warner's biggest rival of all]]!

** Creator/BobChipman [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/6335-The-Prophesy-of-Freakazoid revisited the show in one of his Big Picture segments]], and vound it an incredible source of ValuesResonance. He noted that at the time of the show, most people viewed the internet as the future of how we got information, not a completely screwy place as it was implied to be by Freakzoid being well, Freakazoid. Fastforward and the internet, while used for information, is a very screwy place indeed.
