Freakazoid! is an animated television series created by Steven Spielberg, Bruce Timm, and Paul Dini for the Kids' WB! programming block of The WB. The series chronicles the adventures of the title character, Freakazoid, a manic, insane superhero who gained his powers through the internet and battles with an array of super villains.

The show also features mini-episodes of adventures of other bizarre superheroes. The show, like Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain, was produced by Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation. This series also shared much of the same crew from Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain.
