Lyrics Edit

Super teen extraordinaire 

Freakazoid, Freakazoid 

Runs around in underwear 

Freakazoid, Freakazoid 

Rescues Washington, D.C. 

Freakazoid, Freakazoid 

Unless something better's on TV 

Freakazoid, Freakazoid 

His brain's overloading

It has chocolate coating

Textbook case for Sigmund Freud

Freakazoid, Freakazoid.

Check out Dexter Douglas

Nerd, computer ace

Was surfing on the internet and was zapped to cyberspace

He turned into the Freakazoid

He's strong and super quick

He drives the villains crazy cause he's a lunatic

His home base is the Freakalair

Freakazoid, Fricassee

Floyd the barber cuts his hair

Freakazoid, Chimpanzee.

Rides around in the Freakmobile

Freakazoid, Freakazoo

Hopes to make a movie deal

Freaka me, Freaka you

He's here to save the nation

So stay tuned to this station

If not we'll be unemployed

Freakazoid, Freakazoid



Versions Edit

There are a few variations on the main title.

Chimpanzee Edit

Four different shots are used for the "chimpanzee" line throughout the series:

  • A live action jumping chimp (Episode 1, Episode 8, Episode 10, Episode 11, Episode 13, Episode 15, Episode 16, Episode 22)
  • Two animated chimps (Episode 2, Episode 7, Episode 17)
  • A live action chimp wringing his hands (Episode 3, Episode 6, Episode 9, Episode 18, Episode 21, Episode 23)
  • A live action chimp with a cowboy hat (Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 12, Episode 14, Episode 19, Episode 20, Episode 24)

Free Kazoo Edit

While most episodes feature a shot of Freakazoid behind bars for the "Freakazoo" line, a shot of the package for a Free Kazoo appears in all of the episodes with the "hand-wringing chimp," with the exception of Episode 3 (i.e., in Episodes 6, 9, 18, 21 and 23).

Other Variations Edit

The main title to Episode 7 has a subliminal Emmitt Nervend cameo spliced in.

Episode 6A features a Spanish-language version of the main title.
