Frisky Dingo – Season One (Warner Animation DVD)


Picture: B     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Episodes: B+



Maybe the 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.’


This 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.


The 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 table.
