NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Freakazoid! was a breakout cartoon backed by Steven Spielberg. No stranger to cartoons, Spielberg produced hit shows like Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures before taking up the cartoon production racket with Freakazoid!. In the show, Dexter Douglas is a mild-mannered computer nerd. After accidently executing a flaw in his new computer chip by deleting a random string of characters created when his cat walked across his keyboard, Dexter was sucked into the internet and transformed into the Freakazoid, a superhero with lacking amounts of sanity. As Freakazoid, Dexter fights criminals like the Lobe, Longhorn and Candle Jack with his girlfriend Steph and his buddy Cosgrove.

Freakazoid! ran for two seasons on Kids WB before being cancelled and making its way to Cartoon Network for reruns.
