  • Funny episode; better than the first two episodes.

    8.0
    I liked this episode. I am still looking for the perfect episode but this one was better than the first two episodes. The alien who called himself Moron was pretty lame but it was funny. Not only did I enjoy the parts with Freakazoid in this episode, but I enjoyed the Lord Bravery part as well. I have to say though, the Legends who Lunch was pretty horrible and was the worst part of the episode. I do not even see the point of the Legends who Lunch part because it just wasn't funny. Overall though I recomend this episode, there were plenty of humerous moments.moreless
  • Two words... Poo Gas!

    This episode was the funniest thing I have ever seen. I could barely breathe throughout the entire thing! It seemed that every time I attempted to take a breath I was hit with another hilarious one liner!! It was excellent and I loved it. The comedy of this episode is what made this show so great and why I miss it so intensely :( The comedic timing was perfect and 'poo gas'? Ha ha ha!!! Plus Freakazoid pouting about it? Classic!!! I could not ask for more. Plus Ed Asner's old cop character, cooly advising our hero and inserting delightful one liners? Perfect!moreless
  • The best Freakazoid episode... ever

    This is the episode that truly defines "Freakazoid!" The episode itself is completely attention deficit and zany, while incredibly whitty and absolutely hilarious.



    To be honest, I am a bit rusty on the actual events of the episode since it has been a long, long time since I have seen it, but this episode introduces several characters: Lord Braver, a somewhat washed up English superhero with a voice that pays hommage to comedy genius John Cleese, who lives with his wife and mother-in-law (voiced like the mom from the movie "Throw Momma off the Train"); Mo-ron, an inept alien who has come to earth with "a important message for all of man-kind", yet somehow has managed to forget what that message is; a good-humored impersonator of Bill Clinton is also included in the cast.



    I don't want to ruin the plot by divulging any of the details, but this episode was so funny that I had it taped and watched it several times a day while rolling around on the floor, laughing my head off. Unfortunately, the tape got erased and I somehow managed to never see that episode aired again, even in re-runs. It's so funny that I sought it out on the internet for years after the short-lived series was cancelled.



    I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Now, go! Wake up your parents and tell them you're hungry! Go! Go!moreless
  • I love Mo-Ron!

    7.5
    I like this episode because Mo-ron is hilarious! And I can do a decent impression of him. My name is Mooo-ron, ayhh....



    Then follow it up with a hilarious installment of Lord Bravery, and you have a good episode.



    I don't really remember what happened in the other two segments, but chance are they were funny.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Lord Bravery chides his wife and mother-in-law for not walking "the three feet to the kitchen." But if he's British, he should be using the metric system, which measures distance in meters instead of feet.

    • Man In The Hole: Or maybe you could get those turtle fellas with the bandannas!
      In the segment "Sewer Rescue", the man in the sewer that Lord Bravery is trying to rescue is referring to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. David Warner, the actor who plays The Lobe, (not featured in this episode), was in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The secret of the Ooze as Professor Jordan Perry.

    • The L and R on Mo-Ron's shirt are reminders of which hand is which. Something which he would most likely have a difficult time remembering.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Mo-Ron: Me remember message!
      Freakazoid: Could it be: 'I am Mo-Ron'?
      Mo-Ron: No it is uh um... a giant comet heading to Earth.
      Freakzoid: Now he tells us.

    • Alien: I have traveled many millions of lightyears across forty billion galaxies to come here for the answer to a vital question that concerns the entire universe.
      Bill Clinton: And what is that question?
      Alien: Please tell us - that doll Barbie... what's the name of her little sister?
      (Freakazoid and Clinton look at each other, puzzled)
      Bill Clinton: I think it was Pebbles.
      Freakazoid: Lemmie handle this. It's Skipper!
      Alien: Skipper? Hmmm. (walks back inside his ship) Hey everyone, it's Skipper!

    • Freakazoid: What exactly is the WB? Can someone tell me this? What's it mean? The WB...the water bucket...the wimpy boy...the wet bananas? I don't know what! The weird butt? What? I'm asking!

    • Lord Bravery: Most people your age die. Why won't you?

  • NOTES (5)

    • The closing credits featured the following legal jargon, pertaining to the characters seen in "The Legends who Lunch":

      "Aunt Eater," "Lady Vericose," "The Mighty Avarian," "Captain Sharpei," "The Stygmatist," "Frost Heaves," "Sergeant Scurvy," and "Krimson Kvetch" appear courtesy of "Freakazoid! Comics." "Freakazoid! Comic" characters, the "F!", and all other indicia and logos may not be duplicated, drawn, or talked about without prior written consent of "Freakazoid! Comics," a subsidiary of Time-Warner. Failure to abide by these restrictions will bring swift and appropriate action by what will soon be the world's largest communication company. We're so big we could make your cable go out if we wanted, or print hurtful lies about you in "Time," or follow you wherever you go and you'd never know we're doing that 'cuz we're so secretive and big. We could! So watch it!

    • Find Emmitt Nervend: Four times in this episode.

    • This is the first appearance of Lord Bravery.

    • Animation Services: Dong Yang Animation Co, Ltd.

    • Animation Services: Koko Enterprise Co., Ltd.

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • In the segment: The Legends Who Lunch, there is an advertisement for frog leg soup. There is a top hat on the can which is a reference to the famous WB character Michigan J. Frog, the singing frog.

    • Lord Bravery's mother-in-law is a parody of the mother in the movie Throw Mama from the Train (1987). She looks, acts, and sounds the same.

    • The Mo-Ron episode segment is a big parody of the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). With an alien coming down to Earth with an important message for mankind. The spaceship he flies even looks exactly like the one in the movie. And I'm pretty sure his quote: "I come with an important message for all mankind." is straight from the movie.

    • Man In The Hole: Or maybe you could get those turtle fellas with the bandanas!
      In "Sewer Rescue", the man in the sewer that Lord Bravery is trying to resuce is refering to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
