Freakazoid Returns on the Next Episode of Teen Titans Go!
More than two decades after his last small-screen appearance, Freakazoid! is about to make a comeback. The character’s original voice actor, Paul Rugg, took to Twitter earlier today to share that he recorded a few lines for an episode of Teen Titans Go! last year. And this weekend, the episode will finally premiere on Cartoon Network. You can check out his announcement below.
Yes, Freakazoid is making a mini comeback. Last year the folks at Teen Titans Go sent me a script and it was pretty funny! They asked me to add a few things and I did and we recorded it last December. They also got David Warner! Ed Asner! And Joe Leahy! Ep this weekend!

Created by Batman: The Animated Series masterminds Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, Freakazoid! originally aired on Kids’ WB from 1995 to 1997. The show was also developed by Tom Ruegger, best known as the creator of Animaniacs, which is about to get its own revival on Hulu later this month. Like Animaniacs, Freakazoid! had Steven Spielberg as an executive producer. Characters from the two shows occasionally crossed over with one another.
Freakazoid! followed the freaky adventures of Dexter Douglas, a nerdy teenager who became the titular superhero after a device known as the Pinnacle Chip overloaded inside his computer. Although Rugg voiced Freakazoid on the show, David Kaufman provided the voice of Dexter. Rugg also revealed that he isn’t the only Freakazoid! veteran coming back. Fans can also expect to hear the voices of David Warner and Ed Asner as Freakazoid’s archenemy, the Lobe, and Sgt. Mike Cosgrove, respectively. Additionally, Joe Leahy will reprise his role as the series’ announcer.
The next episode of Teen Titans Go! drops this Saturday, November 14 on Cartoon Network.
