Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Freakazoid! (1995)

Part of the WB's initial lineup of animated series was this ridiculously silly satire of superheroes, Freakazoid!, which was one of four series that Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment co-produced with Warner Bros. (the others were Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, & Pinky and the Brain). Since it hasn't been seen in a while, let's refresh everyone's memories with the opening theme.

Strangely, DC Comics, which published books spun from Animaniacs & Pinky, didn't do a Freakazoid! book, which might've actually increased the title character's profile. As it is, the series lasted just 2 seasons, but would feel right at home today if Cartoon Network could be bothered to dust it off and couple it with humor shows like Regular Show or Mad, or put it on [adult swim].

Rating: B.
