Funny: Freakazoid!
  • The animal psychologist interrogating Mr. Chubbikins about how he activated the flaw:
    Gutierrez: Ask him how he activated the flaw.
    Animal Psychologist: Meow, meow, meow?
    Mr. Chubbikins: Mrrow... mrrow...
    Animal Psychologist: Meow?
    Mr. Chubbikins: Mrrow... mrrow...
    Animal Psychologist: (to Gutierrez) He says he's very sad.
    Gutierrez *rolls his eyes in frustration* Oh go away!
  • The convention panel in "Freak a Panel," in which Freakazoid is pestered with questions about Superman, but has one supportive fan.
    Fan:"You're very popular in a number of state institutions."
    Freakazoid: "Uh, thanks, that's... different of you to say."
    • Not to mention some of their incredibly stupid questions:
      Fan: If Superman fought Fred Flintstone, who would win?
      Freakazoid: Superman, I guess, unless Barney Rubble hit him from behind with a kryptonite club.
      • According to the writers, they're not making those questions up. People at fan conventions can be very strange...
  • One simple line: "We interrupt this program to increase dramatic tension. Thank you. And now back to our program."

  • As well as the entire Candle Jack episo de. I'm flattered.
  • Cosgrove is telling Freakazoid that he needs to go into the sewers to chase down Cobra Queen, but Freakazoid absolutely won't do it because they smell like poo gas. Then an immediate Gilligan Cut to the sewers where ... Freakazoid is not present. Then another cut to his apartment where he's watching TV and says "See? I said I wouldn't go."
  • Or how about when Brain, Wakko, and Freakazoid started arguing over who Spielberg likes the best:—> (cut shot to office) Spielberg: Who are you people?

    • "They called me crazy! Insane! WENDELL!"
  • ''Freakazoid!" (In Stereo ... Where Available)
    Narrator: "Freakazoid!", in stereo where available. And where not available, it's not in stereo. There's nothing we can do about that, so don't blame us. We have no control over it. Call your cable company if there's some sort of problem, or the local broadcaster, but if THEY aren't giving you stereo and YOU want stereo, that's your problem, NOT ours, DON'T BUG US!!! Blame your congressman, or NEWT GINGRICH, LIKE I'M SURE HE'D CARE!!!!!!! HA!!!!!!!!! BUT, ''WE' don't want to get any letters, UNDERSTAND?!?!?! GOOD.
  • "Eheheheheheh! Would you like to see something strange and mystical...?" Also a Moment Of Awesome for Freakazoid.

  • Pretty much all of "Statuesque", including the interrogation of the monsters.
    Freakzoid: Do you know Vorn the Unspeakable?
    Dracula: Yes. I haven't seen him around, if that's what you're asking.
    Freakazoid: We'll ask the questions around here. Have you seen him around?
    Dracula: No!
    Dracula: (angrily) No! (slams door).
    • "All we know about Jeepers is that he's from Venice Beach California. Wait it minute, could it be that simple? Have we overlooked the obvious? Probably."
  • When Gutierrez tries to affect Freakazoid with kryptonite to no avail because that's Superman's weakness. Then he tries the color yellow but that's the Green Lantern's. Next, he tries water, but that's the Wicked Witch. Finally, he just asks Freakazoid what his weakness is.
    Freakzoid: Weeeeeeell...
    *Gilligan Cut to Freakazoid in a cage*
    Freakazoid: Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! Never show the villain how to trap you in a cage.
    Gutierrez: You probably shouldn't have helped us build it, either.
    Freakazoid: I know! DUMB!
  • Another simple line: "We interrupt this program to bring you a very special message. I love you. And now back to our program."

  • From "The Island of Dr. Mystico", when Freakazoid is giving orders as to what everyone should do after the plane crashes:
    That Guy With The Candle: Uh, Freakazoid, is there anything I should do?
    Freakazoid: Why don't you stay here and... scare the Professor!
    That Guy With The Candle: Marvelous. (Heads off camera, followed by Professor Jones' screams)
    You people have no idea just how much fun that was.
    • When Freakazoid and the others return to the plane near the episode, he's still scaring Jones by chasing him around said plane.
    • While they're still on the plane, That Guy With The Candle has a wonderful Large Ham moment: "These peanuts are STALE!"
    • Freakazoid, while piloting a plane no less, antagonizing the Lobe for his own petty amusement:

    • When Freakazoid takes a bathroom break, he has to walk through the seating area, where we see the villains have all burst into a rendition of "Polly Wolly Doodle". Best part? When they get to the second verse, none of them can remember the lyrics, so they just mumble their way through it before cheerfully finishing with "Polly Wolly Doodle all the day!"

    • Everything about Leonard Maltin.

    • "Sparkle has to tinky."
  • The tongue twister scene. And Freakazoid just sums it up perfectly afterward.
  • This Visual Pun is both groan inducing and absurdly funny, partially due to Freakazoid's usual bizarre cheerfulness signing off the gag.
  • From about 2:18 on to 3:16, Ed Asner manages to carry the entire scene with a grand total of four lines and his usual deadpan delivery.
  • How an Ominous Pipe Organ sounds on Freakazoid:
    All around the mullberry bush
    Gutierrez chased the weenie
    The weenie thought 'twas all in fun
    CRUNCH goes the weenie!
  • A cameo by Bill Gates, who they were allowed to use because he's friends with Steven Spielberg (so Bill probably wouldn't have sued).
  • Sorry madam, that was my pager. I had it set to "vibrate my bottom"!
  • The entire Running Gag of Arms Akimbo selling "Oops Insurance", which pretty much boils down to Arms breaking random things while responding in a deadpan tone "Oops."

  • Everything about Handman.
  • "That was shallow, cheap, and based solely on hormones....WORKS FOR ME!"

    ''(Cut to the Gasigo attendants riding along with Freakazoid. Singing.)
    • And when Gutierrez steals the Freakamobile to escape at the end of the episode, the attendants are still there, and they're still singing.
  • "Great, my one bit in this scene and I get upstaged by a mallet."
  • In The Chip, one of the first things Freakazoid does upon...coming into being is zoom all the way to Tibet where a monk is raking the ground.

    Monk: It is all right, my son.
  • At the end of Mo-Ron's debut episode, he finally remembers the message he was supposed to deliver; A comet's going to hit the area! As everyone else panics and flees...
    Freakazoid: Now he tells us!
    • In general, all his segments in that episode are stupidly funny, in a Kung Pow sort of way.
  • The Lord Bravery segments also have some funny ones. Such as the bit where Lord Bravery finds he can't use his name (Someone else has the copyright), and the bureaucrat he's talking to keeps suggesting inane ones like 'Smoked Meats and Fishes' and 'Taste Of Tempura'.
    Lord Bravery: ...You're a loon, aren't you? Right, where have you escaped from? I'll take you back!
    • At one point, he suggests Dreamworks and Bravery actually considers it, but its taken by someone else before he can choose.
  • The Technical Difficulties bit
  • The Lobe's parody of the title song from Hello Dolly.
  • Jocko Prezents: Guitierrez's All-Time Favorite Blupors!
    Freakazoid: It's a plain old duck!

  • After Cosgrove accidentally blurts out that Freakazoid is Dexter in front of Steff (which gets Freakazoid upset), they start doing introductions for his new butler.

  • From the Toby Danger short:
    "Dash" O' Pepper: Just let me throw a barrel at it!
  • Anytime the white-haired man appears to tell what happens next or the origins of something.
    "And now you know...the rest of the [whatever thing he was talking about]..."
    [Beat] "...Good day."
  • In the episode "Hero Boy", Gutierrez makes a clone of Freakazoid to ruin his reputation. Luckily, Cosgrove soon realizes its a fake, and says as much to a group of reporters. When asked how he could tell...
    Cosgrove: I invited him to go to the Yakov Smirnoff film festival. And he said no.
    Crowd: Clone!
  • The running gag from Invisibo's episode where Dexter's family runs through random scenes screaming in terror, followed by Cosgrove asking if that was Freakazoid's family and Freakazoid responds with a dejected "Yeah."
  • An alien is abducting nerds. Cut to an episode of Regis and Kathy Lee, where Regis is talking (and talking and talking) and not letting his guest, the Pope, get a word in edgewise. Regis is then abducted by aliens, rapidly followed by Kathie-Lee. As Kathie-Lee disappears, we see the Pope smiling and clasping his hands in a praying gesture.
  • The creepy old lady who can only communicate by making creepy sound effects. At one point the narrator simply tells her to "Stop that and go away." When she gets attacked by one of Cobra Queen's giant snakes, the Narrator screams at her to run, and then is happy she got away.
    • Later, when the police are questioning her about what happened, she just makes more spooky noises before leaving in a huff after the policemen insult her.
  • The introduction of Professor Jones, and everyone asking him if he was on that show with the robot.
  • "Hello, I'm Jack Valante. And these are my cheeks."
