2-18-09 Freakazoid

Posted by Sean on February 19, 2009

Ah yes, Patlabor and Nadia. I remember Patlabor. That was the one where the police mecha use police revolvers – that fire 8-inch shells.

“But when you’re staring down the barrel of a Patlabor service revolver slash field piece, the most powerful handgun in the world and which has been known to demolish entire elementary schools with a single misplaced shot, you have to ask yourself something: do you feel lucky?”

“Well, do ya, punk?”

And Nadia… yeah. Ain’t that the Japanimation cartoon that Disney stole liberally from used as the inspiration for their feature film Atlantis? Without any attirbrution to the original or creator Hideaki Anno, no less? [1]

But enough of barrel envy and plagiarism. We’ve showcased a lot of freaky Japanamation lately. Isn’t it time, don’t you think, for a little freaky, er, Americamation?

Now that’s the kind of superhero we need. Superheroes have gotten so darned life-killingly serious lately. I mean, look at what superheroes are: grown men and women flying through the sky and chucking buildings at each other in their Iron Man Underoos.

If there is anything more fundamentally ridiculous than that, I haven’t heard of it.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of ridiculous, here’s the multiculti version of Freakazoid’s opening! Why not!

Super-teen extraordinaire
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
Runs around in underwear
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
Rescues Washington D.C.
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
Unless something better’s on TV
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
His brain’s overloading
It has a chocolate coating
Textbook case for Sigmund Freud
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
Check out Dexter Douglas
Nerd computer ace
Went surfing on the internet
And was zapped to cyberspace
He turned into the Freakazoid
He’s strong and super-quick
He drives the villains crazy
‘Cause he’s a lunatic
His home base is the Freakalair
Freakazoid! Fricassee!
Floyd the Barber cuts his hair
Freakazoid! Chimpanzee!
Rides around in the Freakmobile
Freakazoid! Freakazoo!
Hopes to make a movie deal
Freaka me! Freaka you!
He’s here to save the nation
So stay tuned to this station
If not, we’ll be unemployed
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!

[1] And no, I don’t care if it’s not true. Disney is evil, with the It’s a Small World After All Ride as my Exhibit A.
