Show Summary

Frisky Dingo is an eleven minute animated series airing on Adult Swim by Matt Thompson and Adam Reed, co-creators of the cult hit, Sealab 2021. Supervillain Killface is finding that in theory, destroying the world seems like a lot of fun, but in actual practice, it is a very dull and complicated process. There are many boring details to work out such as media buys, budgets and marketing. Every great villain needs a nemesis. Enter billionaire playboy Xander Crews. As the superhero Awesome X, Xander seems to be doing everything he can to stop Killface, but actually he just wants to make it look that way so his action figure line stays in business.

  • Frisky Dingo is canceled.

    *This information is taken from the Adult Swim message board - I thought it would be appropriate if it were also listed here*



    Unfortunately I have some bad news here. Not only has adult swim canceled Frisky Dingo and the Xtacles, but 70-30 has closed it's doors and the guys are moving on. Apparently Matt Thompson is going to take a vacation but then plans to work on a pilot for a new show for Adult Swim, Adam Reed has made a pilot for a show on FX and some of the guys may join him. All I have to say is that Adult Swim really screwed up by letting these guys slip through their fingers.moreless

    I would like to make clear that I do not care for Sealab. I don't like superheroes or comic books. I do like a lot of Adult Swim and other animated shows.



    It starts as a tepid spoof on supervillain doomsday plots with villain Killface running into budget constraints and mundane obstacles to destroying the planet. At some point you notice Killface and Xander Crews, his supposed arch nemesis, are chatting in a swamp on an ill-fated duck hunt and you wonder how it got here. The dialogue is so bizarre and hilarious, peppered with running jokes and lines that are as hard to explain as the face-stretching laughter they cause.



    Most impressive is the way the show has episode-to-episode continuity without sacrificing any of the comedy.moreless
  • It's not too complicated, right? Try to take over the planet and have some fun along the way. There's only one problem being surrounded by idiots. This is Killface's dilemma.

    So, this is a cool little show that follow the characters of Killface and Xander Crews AKA Awesome X. Killface only wants to take over the world while Xander really just wants to have fun, play hero, and keep his company afloat to sustain his income so he can have fun. Okay so he's not a deep character but the show is very fun. The whole Killface story line is basically the daily grind of trying to build a giant machine to take over the world with while raising a deeply disturbed child. Yeah he has a kid. Overall you can see where the writers borrowed a lot of plot points and ideas from various tv and movie titles but you end up not really caring becasue it's done is such a different way that it's interesting. Also Killface is very funny and a like able villian. Check it out you might like it or you might not.moreless

    Frisky Dingo in the first season was about Super Villian Killface and his new accidental enemy Awesome X alter egoed Xander Cruise. Xander Cruise is a snotty and childish playboy who cheats on his girlfriend Grace Ryan with a hooker and blows millions of dollars. Then His boss stan takes over the company and the whole show goes in a weird turn with Killface and Barnaby Jones; Xander Cruises in disquise. Then the second season as of today is about Killface and Xander Cruise running for President against each other.

    That was my summary. Heres my review: This show is way too underrated. I totally hope this show gets a cult following because I would be sad to see this get canceled. Long live Frisky Dingo.moreless
  • One of the few good shows left on Adult Swim.

    This is the sort of absurdist cartoon that works best on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim block - Sunday evenings. The main character is some kind of.... monster thing, that resembles a skeleton with white flesh who goes by the name KILLFACE. Initially he spends billions to build something called the Annihilatrix - a giant rocket engine whose purpose is to push the Earth into the Sun. Even KILLFACE doesnt seem to know why he is trying to destroy the Earth. He runs out of money and becomes involved with a nutty billionaire named Xander Crews whom he thinks can be used to find the money to finish the Annihilatrix... maybe not, but it doesnt really matter.



    Basically this is full of dead pan humor, absurd jokes, pointless violence, exploding heads and nudity (pixelated of course). If youre looking for a cartoon that makes sense, this is NOT it! LOL! Its entering its second season as the Annihilatrix is fired (by his son who just mumbles alot) it fails after the power coupling melts and pushes the earth 3 feet farther away from the Sun and inadvertantly stops Global Warming - KILLFACE is now running for President of the United States based on that accidental feat... If you liked Sealab 2021, youll probably like this (the woman who did the voice of White Debbie is in this one too)moreless
