Episode Summary

EDIT
In Arms Way: Freakazoid’s Christmas shopping is interrupted by a run-in with a crime boss named “Arms” Akimbo, whose arms are locked into a jaunty pose and he cannot move it. He is attempting to extort money from local shopkeepers by selling “oops” insurance, though it’s up to Freakazoid to stop this from happening while trying to find the perfect gift for Steph.

The Cloud: In the remote Teutonic mountains of Schnitzel, a spooky cloud seems to be transforming people into clown zombies. Freakazoid arrives to solve the mystery.moreless

  • In Arms Way was great, but The Cloud wasn't exactly the best episode ever....

    6.5
    I suppose The Cloud would have been funnier to me if I had seen The Crawling Eye, but for some reason, the idea of clown zombies always freaked me out. And the fact that they never said everyone turned back to normal scared me as a little kid... Maybe this is why I have a slight fear of clowns? xD



    In Arms Way was great, though. I loved the part where they're trying to get him into the police car, but he does fit. Still trying to figure out what those jelly baby things were a spoof on, though. o_Omoreless

  • NOTES (3)

    • Find Emmitt Nervend: Twice in this episode.

    • Running Gag: Someone saying that the boat rides at Disneyland are gone, followed by Freakazoid screaming "NOT THE BOAT RIDES!!"

    • This episode is a takeoff of the movie The Crawling Eye, starring Forest Tucker. The movie involves weird incidences occurring in the Swiss Alps, including three mountain climbers. One of the climbers falls and his partners pull on the rope to allow him to get a foothold only to realize that the climber's head is gone. The movie monsters turn out to be giant eyes that hide in cloud cover.
