  • Just like the first episode, it still isn't what I really remember from my childhood. It was still alright though.

    • Narrator: A by-product of pollen's vast tulip industry, Scream-o-Vision heightens Your Viewing experience by prompting you when to scream. Let's try it now. Announcer: Scream. (Woman Screams.) Narrator: Good. and now we proudly present the following cartoon in Scream-o-vision.

    • Freakazoid: Well, if it isn't...
      Steff and kids: NO!
      Freakazoid: What? I was just gonna say...
      Steff and kids: NO!
      Dr. Hanker: Don't say it!
      Freakazoid: Don't say what?
      Steff: Don't say his name!
      Freakazoid: You mean don't say "Candle Jack"?
      (Quick cut to Freakazoid now tied up)
      Steff: Freakazoid, why did you say his name?!
      Freakazoid: 'Cause I-I wanted to do one of those funny things, like on - you ever watch F Troop? - where Agarn says "There's no way I'm wearin' a dress! Absolutely not! No dress!" And O'Rourke's like, "Yeah, you're wearing that dress! You're gonna wear that dress!" And they wipe - blblblb - and Agarn's wearin' a dress!
      (Quick cut to a clip from F Troop of Agarn in a dress, shouting "Yoo-hoo! Look out, fellas! Look who's here for you!")
      Candle Jack: Oh, I love that bit!

    • Freakazoid:*making flying noises as he runs around* Cosgrove: Hey Freakazoid. Freakazoid:*stops than looks at Cosgrove than walks towards him* Oh, hiya Cosgrove. Cosgrove: Wanna to go to the Honey Harvest Festival in Acme? Freakazoid: Really? Ar-are you serious? Yes, yes, YES!

    • Narrator: And now with a rebuttal to the previous scene is Dr. Gunter Hunter Hanker. Dr. Hunter Hanker: I take great excitement to the scene in which we have just witnessed. A man with a bag on his head, scaring and frighting children who are having a nice, happy time. Let me state with absolute certainty, that it it physically impossible, for such a boogyman to come and get you simply by saying the words "Candle Jack". Candle Jack:*sitting on the far end of Dr. Hunter Hanker's desk* Psst. Dr. Hunter Hanker: Then again.

    • Girls: Look! It's candle Jack! All: CANDLE JACK!! Candle Jack: I'm gonna need more rope.

    Notes (5)

    • Find Emmitt Nervend: Once in this episode.

    • Candla Jack was attempted with Scream-O-Vision.

    • This is the first and only appearance of Toby Danger.

    • This is the first time Freakazoid tries to fly, before realising he can't.

    • The part where Freakazoid steps out of the rope to wander around set and introduce us to the cast and crew, he is naming the actual actors who voice the respective characters. As well as this, many of the characters physically resemble the actors who play them.

    Trivia (3)

    • Stef never said "Candle Jack" so why is She tied up with the others?

    • There wear a total of four 'Scream's during the Candle Jack episode, excluding the one at the beginning.

    • The kids at Camp Wennamigonnagohome are afraid of wood and Sinbad getting another TV show.

    Allusions (5)

    • The Backstory Guy is supposed to be Paul Harvey, a guy who told stories on a radio show. He always ended his show with "And now you know...the rest of the story." Paul Rugg does a pretty good imitation of him except Rugg's voice is a little bit higher.

    • Freakazoid! wandering around the set and introducing us to the cast and crew, is obviously a parody of the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Jerry will at the end walk around saying how great the guest are and how much fun they had. This also makes sense since Paul Rugg is a Jerry Lewis fan and often uses Jerry Lewis stuff in his scripts.

    • Candle Jack: Believe it, or not! When he says that he sounds just like Jack Palance who used to host the TV show Ripley's Believe it, or not!

    • Dr. Hunterhanker resembles the German guy in the movie Young Frankenstein who is played by Kenneth Mars, who voices Dr. Hunterhanker in Freakazoid!

    • Toby Danger is a parody of Jonny Quest, even the characters are similar. It uses many of the same voice actors as well, including Scott Menville (who voiced Jonny) as Toby, Don Messick (who voiced Dr. Benton Quest) as Dr. Danger, and Granville Van Dusen (who voiced Race Bannon) as Dash.
