Frisky Dingo Season 1

Frisky Dingo Season 1
Frisky Dingo addresses the challenges of daily life for a hoof-footed, sociopathic terrorist out to destroy the world but who can’t manage a marketing campaign to tell people about his reign of terror. Having spent billions building an "Annialatrix,” villain Killface gets bogged down in the details, even while his superhero counterpart (man-child businessman Awesome X) can’t get his own career off the ground. Frisky Dingo, an intensely serialised short form animated series from Adult Swim (American Cartoon Network’s "mature” division), strikes a peculiar balance between superhero tropes and the mundane and absurd nature of corporate and domestic life. Both hero and villain (the show blurs the lines between the two) are undone not by each other but by the scorn of a lover, the petulant insolence of a child or the fickleness of news media. Oh, and also there are lots of kind of sick sex jokes and other taboo button pushing. With nary a hint of a special feature, why would one turn to Frisky Dingo on DVD instead of trying to catch its 11-minute awesomeness somewhere in the multiverse? Two reasons: one, it’s terribly addictive and looks good on disc; and second, because it’s one of the most serialised animated shows around. They offer no "previously” recaps and jokes from episodes past regularly return without explanation. And Frisky Dingo is a show that warrants putting the bong down (for a moment) and paying attention. (Warner)
