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

    I have just started to re-watch the Freakazoid series becuase it has been many of years since i have seen it on tv. I haven't been too impressed with the series but I do enjoy it. It isn't as cool as I remember it to be but I will continue to watch each episode in hopes of finding the epicness that I found in it from years ago. This episode wasn't too bad. I did not enjoy the Johnny Quest paradoy becuase it was just boring. I liked all of the parts with Freakazoid though. Freakazoid can be super funny and the art and comedy is so much like the Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Batman the Animated Series. If you like Freakazoid alot then check this out, it was rather humorous in a spot or two. Until I watch episode three, farewell!moreless
  • I got to say that Freakazoid is the greates cartoon series Steven Spielberg is a genius . I think he should make more Freakazoid episodes .

    My name is Sean O'Casey Solomon 19 year old male and I live in Hope Mills , NC and I just wanted to say that Freakazoid is the best show ever!!!! An Frekazoid is the most awesome show in the history of the planet an should be brought back to TV an all the Freakazoid fans out there would more then likely agree with me on that subject Frekazoid rules . An for all those who think it sucks than I don't care what the haters say , because they are just jelious of the Freakazoid .

    Sincerely , Sean Solomon

  • One of my favorite episodes.

    Its possibly one of the best episodes. I really like the Scream-O-Vision thing. I also think Candle Jack is funny. I like the echo effect of his voice. Plus i like some of his lines.

    Steff,"What are you planning on doing with us?"

    Candle Jack,"I don't know. I've never gotten so many at once before. Not a very bright group are you."

    Steff,"What do you mean by that?!"

    Candle Jack, "O, nothing."
  • One of the funniest episodes of the series

    This episode is one of my favorites. Once you get past the mildy amusinf Candle Jack segment (which was funnier when the Candyman movies were more recent), you are treated to the funniest spoof of Jonny Quest I've ever seen (not to mention the only spoof of Jonny Quest I've ever seen)

    "This flying island is really neat, Doc."

    "Let me throw a barrel at it!"

    And when Dash O' Pepper dives out the window only to land next to the pool...are some of my favorite parts

    Tack on the end the first appearance of The Lobe and this ep is a must-watch!moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (17)

    • 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.

    • Candle Jack: I'm gonna need more rope.

    • Narrator: I think there's a thuuuumbtack under my fanny!

    • Freakazoid: The scariest thing in the world...would be if they gave Sinbad another TV show.

    • Steph: What are you going to do with us?
      Candle Jack: I don't know. I never gotten so many at once before. Not a very bright group, are you?
      Steph: What do you mean by that?
      Candle Jack: Oh, nothing.

    • Dash O' Pepper (referring to the big robot destroying everything): Let me throw a barrel at it!

    • Dash O' Pepper: This flying island is really neat, Doc.

    • Freakazoid: You know, I'd just like to pause here a minute and say what a gas, and a sagacious experience it is working on today's show, because I walked onto the set and everyone looked at me and said "We're gonna have fun. Fun, fun, fun." And then Joey Leahy came, the announcer. Tell me he's not great. Tell me he's not great. Go ahead, tell me. You can't, right? You can't. And then you've got Eddie Asner, a bear of a man, a huggable guy. I kiss him. (Kiss) And Kenny Mars. Funny? I think so. And these kids, I mean, have you ever in your life been filled with more joy being around kids, whether they're, you know, religious-experiential or not? I love them, all of them. We'll hug after the show. Well, I just--I needed to say that.

    • Paul Harvey: I think there's a thumbtack under my fanny!

    • Dash O'Pepper: I knew it! It's some guy in a helmet!

    • Dash O'Pepper: Heads up, you heathen monkeys!

    • Freakazoid: Well, I'd better be going, for somewhere, there are wrongs to right. There are foes to fight, there are little chunks of carrot in your teeth. I'd have that taken care of; it can lead to insanity.

    • Tim: Candle Jack? W-who's that?
      Buzz: He's the boogieman. The for real one. He comes to kids late at night and steals them from their beds. Then he takes them to some secret place. And they never, ever come back.
      Tim: Why does he do that?
      Buzz: 'Cause he's a nut.
      Tim: How does He get ya?
      Buzz: That's the good part. he can't, not unless you say his name out loud. so don't say His name, OK?
      Tim: OK. Hey, Buzz, We did say His name out loud.
      Both: Uh-Oh!
      Buzz: M-maybe he didn't hear it.
      Candlejack: Hello, boys.

  • NOTES (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.
