The Riddle

He bounced all around DC,

But never made it to season three.

He's not the one from Counterstrike,

But the one palling around with Sergeant Mike.

Taking down any villain he can see.


Freakazoid was a Steven Spielberg produced cartoon that ran from 1995 to 1996. He was a superhero who gained his powers from a malfunction on the internet, based in Washington, DC. While well recieved, it wasn't popular among the target demographic of advertisers on cartoons, and so was moved to primetime, but still cancelled after the second season. Today, the most famous "Freakazoid" is a former professional Counterstrike player who went by that nom du guerre. Freakazoid's sidekick was Sgt. Mike, voiced by Ed Asner, and together they took out the most ridiculous villains this side of The Tick.

Episode Notes

The "Mambo Number 5 Scorebreak." "Mambo Number Five:" my favorite song of all time. That's right: my name is Dan Cassino and I think the greatest musical achievement of the last seventy five years is Lou Bega's 1999 hit song "Mambo Number Five. No one told me to say this, least of all one of the Home Version riddle winners who won the chance to make me read whatever they wanted as part of a scorebreak. No, I am telling you all of my own volition, fueled by unreproachable passion, that "Mambo Number Five" brings joyful tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Shout out to Monica, Erica, Rita, Tina, Sandra, Mary and Jessica. I love a little bit of you all.
