"Whilst"[edit]

Will an admin change the 'whilst' in the Trivia section to 'while'?


Does it matter?

Show Creators[edit]

Does anyone have information on the shows creators?

Bruce Timm designed the main character, but left early in development. More importantly, is there any source for that Jim Carrey film version thing? I very much doubt it, so I'll remove it. --Nick R 21:31, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Fatman and Blubber Boy[edit]

In the episode titles, one of the segments is a mini-feature called "Fatman and Boy Blubber". However, in the show, it's "Fatman and Blubber Boy". Correction?

Well in the theme song it was definitely "Boy Blubber", a pun on "boy wonder." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.72.206.153 (talk) 03:04, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

On removing Boogieman[edit]

I have no idea where the "Boogieman" thing came from, or how it persisted so long, especially with the nonstandard spelling. I can only think that the author meant Candle Jack. I got ri

The person may have been referring to the Booger Beast who was in a fraction of an episode (threatened Steph, but Freakazoid wouldn't have anything to do with him).

Theme song[edit]

Do we really have a use for theme song here? It's admittedly nifty but rather cumbersome and serves no clear purpose. I'd be in favor of moving it here, haven't done it myself yet because I don't know everything. -- Kizor 7 July 2005 07:42 (UTC)

I honestly agree, it, along with the raw lists of characters, makes the page look terribly unprofessional and downright hackneyed. I'd say it'd be a good idea to move at least the theme song here, but I haven't been around Wikipedia enough to know if this sort of article is acceptable. CaptainSpam actually remembered to sign it this time 7 July 2005 15:20 (UTC)
It's actually not. We could quote bits and pieces, but a full duplication of the song is a violation of the copyright of the publishing company that owns it. --FuriousFreddy 10:48, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
I would venture to say that the whole of Freakazoid serves no clear purpose. Does that mean it doesn’t belong on television? —Frungi 05:32, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

*Ahem*. Out of general consensus, we have decided to remove the theme song from the article from the mentioned reasons. Because I am a dyed-in-the-wool inclusitionist, we have moved it here for those interested to enjoy. --Kizor 9 July 2005 07:32 (UTC)


Like several other cartoons produced by Warner Bros. around the same time (such as Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs), Freakazoid featured a theme song which simultaneously explained the basic premise of the show and provided a good feel for the show's humor.

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! Freak-azoo!
Hopes to make a movie deal
Freak-a me! Freak-a you!
He's here to save the nation
So stay tuned to this station
If not, we'll be unemployed
Freakazoid! Freakazoid!
Freakazoid!

The opening animation had occasional variations from episode to episode; for instance, sometimes the image of Freakazoid in a cage ("Freakazoo") would be replaced with a kazoo labeled "Free!" ("Free kazoo").




I see absolutely no mention of the theme song on the entire article. There should at least be some mention of it. For example, how long was the song, who wrote it, et cetera. Allixpeeke 19:31, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

EWJ reference?[edit]

  • Real quick question for anyone who can help: I seem to remember an episode of Freakazoid! where the narrator was acting very childish, and Freakazoid threatened to "replace him with the narrator from Earthworm Jim." Can anyone telll me which episode this is? Thanks in advance. --68.229.103.250 14:43, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

bug?[edit]

"The computer bug that gives Freakazoid his powers is a reference to the Pentium FDIV bug."

What similarities does the bug that gave him his powers have with that bug? TastemyHouse 21:53, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

By bug, they mean computer glitch. It's a joke based on an early version of the Pentium chip which had a mathematical flaw in its logic, potentially creating unstable results. --Happylobster 16:17, 22 November 2005 (UTC)
Yes, but how would the computer bug that gave Freakazoid his powers be at all a reference to, specifically, the Pentium FDIV bug? It's a reference to computer bugs, obviously, as it SAYS it's a computer bug, but I haven't seen anything that seems to imply it's a reference to the FDIV bug itself... 24.67.253.203 04:02, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
It's almost definitely indirectly referring to the FDIV bug, since if I'm not mistaken, at the time this aired the Pentium Bug was a big thing in the mainstream press. Furthering this idea is that it was called the "Pinacle Chip" which is similar enough to "Pentium" for the joke to work in the era the episode was originally broadcast. -- Fortyseven 21:57, 5 February 2006 (UTC)


Freakapooch?[edit]

why isnt that dog included as a nuisance

--felinoel, sorry for my total nubeness this is my first time adding something

Assuming you're talking about Foamy the Freakadog, probably because he was only in one short. --Darksasami 20:53, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Freakazoid's weakness?[edit]

what about his weakness, why isnt that listed? lol it was a negatively charged graphite cage that freakazoid helped in making --felinoel

Kaufman[edit]

Why isn't Dexter Douglas or his voice actor, David Kaufman, mentioned here? I'd put it in myself, but I don't know where. 75.21.95.107 02:24, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Deadpool?[edit]

While the Madman influence is fairly plausible (and actually recognized by Madman's creator), the Deadpool_(comics) parallels seem somewhat of a stretch. Check out the dates of the two series: Freakazoid! began its run in 1995, and Deadpool's long-running self-titled series, from which much of his 'zany' character development stems, appeared in 1997. The Freakazoid! article seems to imply that Deadpool was a possible influence on Freakazoid!, though, if anything, it was the other way around. If we can find any articles, interviews or otherwise, dealing with this to justify it, that'd be good, but otherwise, it just seems speculatory?--Totenkreuz 17:09, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry to burst your bubble here, but Deadpool's first appearance was in 1991's New Mutants, and he has since been starring in several limited series before he got his 1997 ongoing series. However, I agree that Deadpool and Freakazoid barely have anything in common. Cyanid (talk) 09:02, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Please It makes sense to do as its part of the character's job. Maybe have it be after the statement that he abducts people who says his name. Such as 'Of course Everyone knows Candlejack is a fa' Would that be better? it illistrates the joke better. --216.19.115.116 16:17, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
No. We understand the joke, but Wikipedia's purpose isn't to tell or even relay jokes. When we write about Sherlock Holmes, we note that Sherlock Holmes was a fictional character whose adventures were narrated by the equally fictional John H. Watson but were actually written by Arthur Conan Doyle. There are Holmes fans who enjoy pretending that Holmes and Watson were both real people, and that Conan Doyle's role was merely that of a literary agent for Watson. But we don't tell the joke, even if it's a funny joke; we tell the facts. -- Antaeus Feldspar 17:28, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
I agree. It's a funny joke, but this is an encyclopedia. I'm sure there's a FreakaWiki! or something like that out there where it would be welcome and appropriate. Also, whoever sent me a message telling me I have no sense of humor - please sign your name or log in so I know who to respond to. Besides, I do so have a sense of humor. Laugh with me, Jocko!--Gradient 17:36, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
I restricted this joke to the talk page because I agree with all that, and have not edited the page whatsoever. But it would be nice if the joke could be worked in in an encyclopedic way because it's all kinds of funny. -Insomniac By Choice 00:03, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

It wouldn't make any sense to those not in on the joke. and the joke doesn't belong in an encyclopedia. It might belong in a 4chan wiki, but not here. Jay Maynard 16:31, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
It would make sense to anyone who has seen the show, and would be appreciated by fans of the series.

Stop being so stuck up, and just appreciate the humor that Candle Jack has to off- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 216.11.243.129 (talk) 18:04, 4 January 2007 (UTC).
Even if it's an old show and 'everyone' should know it, you can't assume that. Someone could be trying to research, say, past work of Bruce Timm, and find what otherwise appears to be a errantly left out line in the description for Candle Jack. As a result, that person may consider the WP not credible due to poor editing or poor writing, and would then move on to another source. That's the last think WP wants. The whole "abducted mid-sentence" thing is fine for other wikis, particularly those that cover internet memes, but since the joke is only coming from one source (4-chan) and not a net-wide phenomena (like the Star Wars Kid), there's no point to include it, even if treating it in a serious manner. --Masem 18:10, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

As Banjooie said, I think it should be added in a trivia section. the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's trivia section mentions the joke on its song. 70.176.175.77

If that can pass in the FP article, then it makes PERFECT SENSE to add information or reference to the joke under the trivia section. Honestly, we have more inane and obscure information in other articles, so policing this is tantamount to just asking for people to vandalize the article. If you can't give it a place of its own, then you get it out there the best way possible. That's how the free exchange of information works. Hell, the article has been vandalized so frequently that it's merit enough to add it to the article. Chronomaster 02:36, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
But it's not really a far reaching internet meme. In addition, we already have enough problems with the one line about CJ and vandalism, adding a second line is going to make it twice as worse. --Masem 02:58, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
And thus you're only exacerbating the problem by not making a clear resolution! By refusing to at least acknowledge its existence is to only cause more disruptions to occur. In other words, because of the amount of policing on this issue, people are only more determined to edit the article. If people were to constantly deny your existence, even though clearly you exist, wouldn't you make motions to prove your existence, or would you rather allow yourself to fade out of memory? This is the same case. Chronomaster 19:41, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Is there a reliable source to document the meme's existence? An inside joke on some message board does not a meme make. EVula // talk // // 19:45, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I just took out a statement that made this meme connection to CJ, partially because we haven't come to a conclusion here about it, but the way it was written, and knowing the 4chan mentality, they would be all over it to "prove" themselves. That's really the other problem with putting that it. Not only are you acknowledging and feeding the trolls by just mentioning it, you're giving them more fodder to keep going after it. Unless WP decides to permanantly semi-protect the F! article (doubtful), I feel the less we say about it on the main page, the faster the problem will go away. --Masem 14:26, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

To those that don't take Wikipedia seriously, the site has become a referance for high school and college students alike. If you put in stupid joke stuff that don't really pertain to the actual scource of the article, you take away any credibility to the article.

What craptacular school do you go to that considers Wikipedia a reliable source? People have been kicked out of some of my classes for citing "Wikipedia" in papers. 76.89.149.99 (talk) 08:07, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
The fact that it can be freely edited made Wikipedia initially unreliable. Not every article is watched as closely as others. Take for example the Ford Mustang article. here is the revision difference - the article was protected before the vandalism could be reverted. Though it wasn't bad (just removal of some information), this is a real weakness in that something can be sneaked into an article before protection, and hence can't be fixed by the normal Wikipedia editors. It's not that I don't take it seriously, but not everything is cited. Now, as for what to do with the article, perhaps add in that it has become a meme? Instead of illustrating it on the page, just mention that people who say "Candlejack" usually can't fini Zchris87v 21:31, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

However, I don't think the page should be spammed with examples, just the line "He abducts anyone who says his name, usually mid-sentence." or something similar should suffice.

A couple points: to people who "it's not funny anymore, not after 10 times". No offense to anyone, but the joke isn't supposed to be funny to YOU, it's supposed to be funny to the people doing it, and to THEM, it's the first time. Of course it's not going to be funny to YOU. I'm not saying that makes it "OK" or whatever, I'm simply stating that "it isn't funny" isn't really a legitimate criticism. Would it be ok if it WAS funny? Also, 4chan loves to take credit for everything: rickrolling, fresh prince of bel air, and all your base, are all examples of, get this, things NOT originating from 4chan. It might be known for being on 4chan, but the candlejack internet joke has been around since before 4chan even existed. -Indalcecio (talk) 02:57, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Sigh. The whole point of the joke is that NOTHING on the internet is immune to it. As long as that person's name is mentioned in the article, it WILL be modified to cut off a sentence. They will never give up.

I suggest the following explanation of the meme, which is easy to understand. "According to a meme, this character really exists and monitors the entire Internet for mentions of his name, abducting all who type it. Therefore, conversations on the Internet tend to get cut off rather abruptly if they include Candlejack's name in th" 71.193.11.72 (talk) 19:21, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

And the joke definitely is still funny. The other point of it is that even when they should know better, everyone in the cartoon keeps saying his name, and people keep getting abducted. The repetition after people should know better is what makes it funny.

Rescues Washington, DC...[edit]

I don't think it's correct that Freakazoid's hometown is Washington, DC. Aside from the fact that the streets of DC look quite different from whatever town Freakazoid calls home, none of the major DC landmarks have ever been portrayed in the show to be in the city that Freakazoid calls home. Sure, there's the line "rescues Washington DC" in the theme song, but that doesn't mean he lives there. It's the capital, after all - there's no reason to believe that he needs to live there in order to have a reason to save it.

Can someone provide evidence that Freakazoid and/or Dexter Douglas call Washington home? If not, I'm gonna delete the line. --Gradient 17:36, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

The original press releases announcing the show indicated that Dexter's accident happened "one snowy morning in Washington D.C." See http://users.california.com/~keeper/FzInfo.txt 68.186.48.252 10:06, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

The show isn't terribly consistent (naturally - it's Freakazoid), but there's plenty of evidence that he lives in D.C. The Washington Monument is seen at the end of "And Fan Boy Is His Name" and the beginning of "In Arms Way," Lobe takes Steff prisoner at the Smithsonian in "Relax-O-Vision," and Deadpool says she is going to use Freakazoid's identity to take over D.C. in the opening to episode 13 (whereat she teleports to D.C., and Freakazoid casually strolls past and greets her). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.143.205.216 (talk) 11:20, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

{{blatantvandal}} tagging[edit]

I have been placing the {{blatantvandal}} tag on any user's page who commits CandleJack vandalism, and I recommend others do so, too. It's obviously vandalism, not a content dispute, and it's blatantly harmful to the article - especially the version that cuts off the entire article at that point. It cannot possibly have been made in good faith. Jay Maynard 13:35, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

why dont you change it so the enemies section is last and the candlejack is the last enemy, that way the article can be unfinished, and everyone is ha
Obviously the joke is still around, but a blatant vandal tag for this? I mean I have to rescue articles that are much more maliciously vandalized, such as the poor Ford Mustang article, whose deletion of material went unnoticed, and small things were replaced with intentionally wrong information, or something like "The Ford Mustang is a piece of shit car" instead of "Pony car", stuff like that, and then the article would get locked and that stuff would stay without being noticed. No one ever received a blatant vandal tag for something like that. But I agree, the joke is getting old and maybe one day we can lock certain sections of articles. But for now, I think the simple warning does it. Let's face it - people that vandalize much larger articles (George W. Bush, for example), still don't get the blatant vandal tag. Maybe we should just stick to the warning for anyone that vandalizes the Candlejack section of the ar Zchris87v 05:43, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

It's a meme. In the show, if you said Candlejack's name, he would come and kidnap you before you could finish you sent- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Moberho (talkcontribs) 16:17, 12 April 2007 (UTC).

Interestingly enough, all in-show instances of Candle Jack kidnapping people would happen after they had finished their sentences. -66.245.196.119 00:04, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

That's because if you're typing when you say Candle Jack's name, you can't finish your sentence because he will take you away from yo —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.95.194.73 (talk) 15:17, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Gutiérrez - top villain[edit]

Gutiérrez should be the top villain, since he is Dexter/Freakazoid's arch-enemy, appears in the pilot, and directly relates to the bestowing of powers upon Dexter. I'll make the move after at least a week, if I hear no plausible objections. And saying Candlejack should be first is NOT a plausible obje- 205.201.141.146 20:04, 4 May 2007 (UTC)


Janos Ivnovals - Mission: Freakazoid[edit]

I'm only stopped by being at work and unable to confirm the names 100%, but the entire section refers to the bad guy and events of Mission: Freakazoid episode, not a "bogus" reference Cyckath 05:47, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Toby Danger[edit]

Just want to say as an old dude who remembers "Jonny Quest", I loved "Toby Danger". Especially loved Don Messick, the orginal Dr. Quest, voicing "Vernon Danger", as well as Scott Manville an old JQ voicer. The animation was perfect, as was the story-line (seemed just like a Jonny plot), as well as the in-jokes of "throw a barrel at it!"

Freakazette[edit]

It could be mentioned that a script for an episode introducing/creating Freakazette had been approved for season 3, but of course the green light for season 3 never came.

Perhaps also mention other villain characters that are presented in the first episode but never given an episode: Eye of Newt (a giant eyeball that somehow resembles Newt Gingrich), Booger Beast (well, it did have a brief segment). And maybe a mention of that skeletal gunfighter villain who appears a few times in the show but is never named. (Does anyone know what his name was going to be?) 68.186.48.252 10:16, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

adding Swedish article[edit]

I can't adding sv:Freakazoid, can somebody else do it? Egon Eagle 10 december 2007 8:19 PM (CEST) —Preceding comment was added at 19:18, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Freakazoid: The Movie[edit]

What about the live-action student film that supposedly had the full endorsment of the show's creator? I don't see any mention of it here. I am fairly certain it wasn't just a rumor but I can't find any evidence other than this http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/2948/freakazoid.html (IRMacGuyver (talk) 12:01, 14 February 2008 (UTC))

DVDs[edit]

The only source for the fact the DVDs are coming out is an article on a site that was produced on April 1. Somehow, I don't think April Fools' Day is necessarily the best day to be citing sources from. Is there any OFFICIAL or confirming source on this? Lord Seth (talk) 05:37, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Looking at the site, it doesn't appear that they actually did anything for Tuesday; they've got several other announcements that are fairly run of the mill. I'd like to find another source just to confirm it, though... EVula // talk // // 13:23, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Lord Bravery[edit]

Lord bravery is not dressed as a Roman soldier. He is dressed as a character Britannia, who is symbolic of the united kingdom (she appears on some coins).

Move characters to their own article[edit]

The characters section in this article is too long and specific for a general article about the show; they should be moved to their own article, like the characters in the Simpsons article. Gak Blimby (talk) 05:55, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Freakzoid's Pager[edit]

It may or may stand to be mentioned that in the episode 10 "In Arms Way" Freakazoid is called on his pager. The pager is set to "vibrate my but mode" and display's the number 555-0100. No significance, but being a freakazoid loving geek, It's interesting to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cabbruzz (talkcontribs) 01:05, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from Resinousmx, 22 May 2010[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} Adding a music section to this page would make the article more informative. Music was an integral part of this series. I suggest the following:

The music for Freakazoid! was written by supervising composer Richard Stone and his team, consisting of Steve Bernstein, Julie Bernstein, Gordon Goodwin and Tim Kelly. Stone won a Daytime Emmy with lyricist (and senior producer) Tom Ruegger for the main title song in 1996. Julie Bernstein was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Original Song in 1998 for the song "Invisibo" from the episode Freak-a-Panel.

Yep, I did it[edit]

I went ahead and removed the last 3 characters from the section on Candlejack.

RATIONALE:

-It was done tastefully in a manner that preserves the entire meaning of the section as it previously stood.
-It does absolutely nothing at all to detract from the article, except in the eyes of someone who believes that an encyclopedia should be god-awfully boring and unfun at all times and at all costs.
-It explains the joke better by giving an example, instead of just making remarks.
-It will likely prevent real vandalism whereby people chop off the entire fucking article at that point - I chopped 3 characters, it's still readable, and nobody is going to feel the need to do more damage because the joke has already been inserted.
-There is no need for this site to be so mind-bogglingly stuffy, uptight, and boring. It just straight up makes the article better, no matter how old of a joke it is.

I eagerly await some uptight asshole to slap a vandalism tag on my profile.

--HeroofTime55 (talk) 05:24, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Okay. I understand that you're trying to improve Wikipedia. I really do. I won't accuse you of vandalism because that's not what you did: you made a good-faith edit. But, seriously, I don't think the right thing to do is to make the article itself a Candlejack joke.
We address these sorts of edits in the comments:

Look, guys, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. The current '(e.g. "Just who is this Candlejack charac")' is as close as we're going to get to a Candlejack joke. Actually interrupting a sentence is a violation of the Manual of Style. We can get kidnapped by Candlejack all we want in Talk pages, userpages, comments, etc, just not in the actual artic-

Yes, I agree that the encyclopedia doesn't need to be boring and uptight. But I don't think that your Candlejack joke is the right way of going about that. Humor is subjective - not everyone will find it funny, and it seems that many people do not. We already have an example, we don't need to make the article itself an example. You may believe with all your heart that it does nothing to detract from the article, but consensus here is that it does. Feel free to do a straw poll or RfC if you wish to establish a new consens --Zarel (talkc) 13:43, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Inspiration for Freakazoid?[edit]

Does anyone think that the inspiration for Freakazoid came from the song "Freakazoid" from Midnight Star? It may be a stretch but freakazoid is a lady's woman in the show...

Kid Carrion[edit]

Where did the name "Kid Carrion" come from? It's never mentioned in the show (as the entry notes). I checked the featurette on the DVD that displays some of the original Bruce Timm model sheets, and while designs for this character are seen, his name is never visible. The only other sources to have picked it up online likely plundered it from Wikipedia's entry.

Is this just a cute name some fan made up, or is there an actual source for it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.143.205.216 (talk) 11:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
