Frisky Dingo – Season One (Warner Animation DVD)
B Sound: B- Extras: D Episodes: B+
dingo ate your baby! Frisky Dingo is a new series from
Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim that is both well written and hilariously
funny. The creators of Frisky Dingo (Matt Thompson and Adam
Reed) also headed the fantastic and now canceled Sealab 2021. Frisky Dingo is another one of Adult
Swim’s oddball creations that while completely insane and nonsensical, also
somehow manages to be some of the smartest writing on television. The series in Season One houses thirteen episodes that center on exploits of the
tyrannical Killface as he attempts to destroy the world and his arch enemy (not
by choice) the narcissistic superhero/playboy Xander Crews as he attempts to
inflate his ego.
Season One mainly sets out to show us who
the characters are and does a great job making the audience laugh the entire
way. Killface tries to inflate his ego
by striking fear into the hearts of others in an array of sadistic ways and
Xander Crews (AKA- Awesome-X) inflates his ego why trying to grace the cover of
every magazine and being an action figure.
The series becomes an uphill battle between Xander Crews and Killface
with mainly Xander tormenting the hell out of Killface. The fact of the matter is that Killface never
asked for an arch enemy, but Xander doesn’t care much. It is not everyday you get to see the
Superhero torment the ‘villain.’
reviewer absolutely loves Frisky Dingo. The series is ridiculous yet sophisticated in
a world of controlled chaos. It is
violent, it classy, and it is utter comical madness.
technical features of this 1-Disc set are quite nice for such a simple First
Season release. The picture is bright,
colorful, and incredibly crisp in its Full Frame image; all in all impressing
this reviewer. The sound is a simple
Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo that is nothing special and comes heavily from the
front, but remains crisp and clean throughout.
The extras are sadly nonexistent, which is odd because Adult Swim
usually always throws some kind of wackiness on DVD for its fans to enjoy.
This is a
great buy and this reviewer highly recommends the zaniness and comical hysteria
that Frisky Dingo brings to the
