A twistedly brilliant Saturday morning cartoon by Creator/DougTenNapel (the same man behind ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim'') and Doug Langdale (who ironically helped make the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' cartoon, despite [=TenNapel=]'s opposition to it; he would later go on to create Disney's ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' and ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian''), ''Project G.e.e.K.e.R.'' ran for thirteen episodes in [[TheNineties the mid-90's]] on Creator/{{CBS}}. However it was doomed from the beginning because the FCC's new [[ExecutiveMeddling educational programming requirements]] came into effect in January 1997, just as its first season run was ending, and CBS couldn't see it meeting [[EdutainmentShow E/I]] guidelines well enough for a second season.

In an ambiguously future time, Moloch Industries and its CEO, Mister Moloch owns most of the solar system, yet even that is not enough. In order to gain total power, Moloch initiated Project GKR ([[FunWithAcronyms Geno-Kinetic Research]]). The aim of Project GKR was to create the perfect corporate warrior; an artificial human with complete control over his molecular structure, whom Moloch could use to crush all who opposed him.

All that was needed was the loyalty program. But then Project GKR was stolen by an ActionGirl named Lady Macbeth and Noah, her intelligent Tyrannosaurus pal. Due to the loyalty program having ''all'' the intelligence, they end up saddled with Geeker, a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} to the extreme who has no real idea just how powerful he really is.

The series' entire run was on Creator/{{Hulu}} and iTunes at one time, but has since disappeared.

!!Tropes:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Lady Macbeth prefers not to be called "Becky".
* AerialCanyonChase: ''Geeker'' (of all people) does this in the second episode, by way of flying a commandeered shuttle straight downward and into a subway tunnel in order to shake off a Pinker fighter. And surprisingly, he pulls it off ''perfectly''. He didn't even [[HowDoIShotWeb realize]] [[SuperZeroes what he was doing]].
* ArtificialLimbs: Becky's left arm.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Noah and Lady Macbeth often fight, with the dinosaur often refusing to allow "Becky" to accompany him on critical missions. Lady Macbeth interprets this as a snub, because she's weaker than him. In actuality Noah can't bear the thought of anything bad happening to his team-mate.
* BadFuture: The plot of the final episode.
* BaitAndSwitch: Probably not played for comedy, but worth a mention. Every time Geeker says "I am '''''so''''' on top of that!", he performs his task successfully and perfectly. You would think someone like him would screw it up all the time.
* BareYourMidriff: Lady Macbeth.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Doctor Maston.
* BodyHorror: When Geeker realizes he only has four fingers, and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting grows more]] in an attempt to be more normal. He goes [[UpToEleven a bit overboard]].
--> '''Lady Macbeth''': Geeker, what's that on your arm?\\
'''Geeker''': [[CaptainObvious Um...a finger?]]\\
'''Noah''': [[SubvertedTrope No,]] ''[[SubvertedTrope next to]]'' [[SubvertedTrope the finger.]]
:: : Turns out [[spoiler: it's a clock, and it happens to be [[WhyAmITicking counting down to something.]]]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Averted. This cartoon does not actaully have the same off-the-wall wacky cartooniness as [[WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim Earthworm Jim]].
* CatchPhrase: Geeker's "I am '''''so''''' on top of that!" and "Neato torpedo!".
** Lady Macbeth frequently says "I hate you" to Geeker and "[[AccidentalMisnaming It's Lady Macbeth!]]" every time he calls her Becky.
** Noah has "This can't possibly be good."
** Moloch's angry "Geeker..." each time his plan is foiled.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Geeker takes this UpToEleven.
-->"I LIKE MARMALADE!"
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Moloch
* CreepyMonotone: How Mr. Moloch speaks.
* CyberPunk.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The atmosphere, setting and characters, all except Geeker.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly Noah, though Lady Macbeth and Moloch have their moments.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Invoked:
-->'''Moloch:''' Once we use Geeker's power to conquer the world, remind me to have ''anyone'' who leaves [[FunnyAnsweringMachine humorous answering machine messages]] ''eliminated''.
* EveryEpisodeEnding: At the end of each episode, Moloch's plans will have been foiled, and he will utter an angry, "''[[SayMyName Geeker]]''..."
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
* EvilKnockoff: Eventually, Moloch creates another GKR closer to his original plan. [[spoiler: First it goes renegade. Then Geeker out-crazies it, and defeats it by uploading some of his insanity into its mind causing it explode.]]
* FantasticRacism: Dinosaurs are not extinct, but are sapient, and the majority have been hiding from humanity in their subterranean city Dinopolis, until it was thought the two species could peacefully co-exist. Humans ''hate'' dinosaurs, and those who desire to socialize with man and shop at malls, are immediately subject to ethnic persecution.
* FutureMeScaresMe: In the final episode, Becky, Noah, and Geeker travel 100 years into the future, and see a world where a nightmarish Geeker has enslaved the galaxy, and Noah has become an elderly, senile captive. It turns out that [[spoiler:Geeker and Moloch had [[FreakyFridayFlip switched minds]] at some point, though this future was averted by the end of the episode.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: From "Thing Called Love":
-->'''Geeker:''' Kissing? Is that some kind of wrestling?
-->'''Noah:''' ''[{{Beat}}]'' Uh, why don't you take this one, Becky...
* HowDoIShotWeb: Geeker often stumbles upon new applications of his powers by accident.
* IdiotHero: Guess who.
* InsaneTrollLogic: In one episode, Geeker goes in search of Becky and Noah, who have gone missing. Geeker rides a water ride at a broken down carnival, sees the letters S and K fall off of a sign, assumes that they stand for "'''S'''pecial friend" (Becky) and "'''K'''ool" (Noah), and uses these "clues" to break into a seafood restaurant and rescue two lobsters from the lobster tank, under the assumption that Becky and Noah had been "lobsterized."
** Later that same episode, he receives a video message from Becky (who, for the record, is as human as ever), assumes she sent it psychically from her "mutated lobster brain," and [[RewindReplayRepeat replays it]] forwards, backwards, and upside down until it gives him something in the language of the "crab-men" (who may or may not exist InUniverse; [[MST3KMantra it's not important]]).
* InvincibleHero: Geeker is this due to his powers, but his inability to fully master his powers or reach his full potential prevent him from getting rid of any threat he comes across.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifter: Geeker. Constantly.
* {{Keet}}: Geeker.
* LargeHam: Doctor Maston. Hey, it's Creator/CharlieAdler, what did you expect?
* MadScientist: Doctor Maston, who is a ''mastodon'' MadScientist. So mad that when Geeker was going to explode in the first episode, he planned on dying with his creation, even though he already admitted the explosion would equal that of a small thermonuclear bomb.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Everyone (even Noah the dinosaur) is drawn in a fairly realistic style...except for Geeker.
* OpeningNarration[=/=]FakeOutOpening: Creator/BillyWest starts out reading the opening narration as GKR, using a gravelly voice. Then, right when you think this show is an action drama à la ''WesternAnimation/XMen'', West ''flawlessly'' switches voices and reads the rest as Geeker.
* NiceGuy: Geeker. Despite his insanity and power, he doesn't want to destroy or hurt anyone and simply wants to make friends with anyone he meets. He even refers to his enemies as friends who are trying to kill him. However, when his friends are hurt, he unleashes the darker aspects of his powers.
* PhysicalGod: Geeker has complete control over his molecular structure and the ability to control other matter the same way. That's [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]]-level superpower. In addition to being invulnerable to damage. [[spoiler: The BadFuture episode shows just how unstoppable he could be if his abilities are ever used for evil.]]
* PunchClockVillain: In one episode, the [[{{Mooks}} Pinkers]] decide not to pursue Geeker in the middle of a very dangerous situation, because they aren't paid enough.
* RealityWarper: It's implied that this is what Geeker would be if he wasn't a erratic moron.
-->"It's not like I could turn into a monster.(shapeshift!) ...Or shoot heat rays out of my eyes.(laser!) ...Or turn Mr. Moloch's dinner into a spider..."(DescriptionCut)\\
'''Mr. Moloch''': '''''"...GAH!"'''''
* StableTimeLoop: Implied in "12 Chocolate Monkeys," and it's because of this that Noah loses the will to fight Moloch. [[spoiler:However, it is later averted.]]
* SuperPrototype: The reason why Moloch and Doctor Maston need Geeker back so badly. Their attempts to replicate the process, to make another artificial human (ideally more stable), have ended with failure after failure.
--> '''Dr. Maston''': [[LargeHam SUCCESS! WILL BE MIIINE!]] ''[latest attempt fails]'' [[RunningGag ...Darn it.]]
* SuperZeroes: Of the "has great powers, but no talent to use them" type. Still manages to foil the bad guy, [[ForegoneConclusion somehow]].
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Moloch, when his mooks fail him. So, once an episode or so.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Noah '''really''' likes breath mints. Says they're the best thing humans ever invented. For Geeker, it's chocolate monkeys.
* {{Tsundere}}: Becky, Type A.
* TyrannosaurusRex: Noah.
* UltimateLifeForm: Geeker was intended to be this. ...Doesn't quite take. He's effectively invulnerable, doesn't even need to breathe, can manipulate all matter, can intuitively understand technology, and is effectively immune to all disease, even bioengineered ones like Larry.
** During the episode that a robotic duplicate of GKR was made, Geeker begins using his powers effectively for the first time, ultimately fighting the duplicate in a battle in space where the two of them are fighting by throwing energy blasts at each other. The two fight on a nearly god-like level, neither able to overpower the other. After he defeats the duplicate [[spoiler: by forcing his own defective programming into the robot's brain,]] [[StatusQuoIsGod Geeker quickly forgets how he was able to do all of that cool stuff.]] So, long story short, physically, Geeker IS an ultimate life form, he just lack the mental capacity to make use of his powers.
* UsedFuture: Neo-Denaire, where the main characters live, is a prime example of this.
* VitriolicBestBuds: (Type 1) Becky and Geeker. She hates being the nanny of a super-powered moron, and lets him know about it all the time. Geeker never gets it.
** One episode, in which she believed Geeker had died, finally had Becky cry and admit that he was her friend.
* TheVirus: Larry, an intelligent mutant cold virus bioengineered by Moloch Industries sent to capture Geeker. Anyone he spreads his virus towards has their mind possessed by Larry and displays trademark BlackEyesOfEvil
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Worms]]: Becky ''really'' hates worms.
* XMeetsY: WesternAnimation/AeonFlux (albeit a PG-rated version, at most) meets WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants.
