YMMV / Freakazoid!

  • Retroactive Recognition: Roddy MacStew later became the host of The Late Late Show.
  • Second Season Downfall: And depressingly so. See Misaimed Marketing above.
  • Spiritual Adaptation: While he has made appearances in animated shows, this is probably the closest we'll get to an Animated Adaptation of Deadpool.
  • Tear Jerker: Both in-universe and out. Steph is turned into a statue by a magic watch while saving Freakazoid from suffering the same fate. Immediately after, he falls at her feet and begins weeping, believing her to be dead. She gets better, but still.
    • The ending of A Matter of Love has Cosgrove silently lamenting the ashes of his dead billion-year-old girlfriend. Freakazoid warmly beckons him off and they walk away sadly into the sunset.
    • Roddy's goodbye letter at the end of "The Chip, Part 2" is very eloquent and touching.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Freakazette. A Distaff Counterpart for Freakazoid who not only didn't get a single line, but only appeared for all of three seconds in the entire series, during the "Freakazoid and Friends" song.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The show never focused on the relationship between Dexter and Freakazoid, and it was unclear whether Freakazoid was Dexter unhinged or an entirely separate character (Freakazoid himself acted like Dexter was a different person, but still considered Dexter's family his family). Likewise nothing ever came of Stephanie learning that Dexter and Freakazoid shared the same body.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: How many kids recognized the "Sneaking Song" from "The Island of Doctor Mystico" as "Carefully on Tiptoe Stealing" from H.M.S. Pinafore? Humorously enough, Paul Rugg would later direct an ammeter production of it!
