Funny show CSM clearly dosen't understand.

Frisky Dingo is a hillarious off-beat cartoon.I couldn't stop laughing in the first episode and the rest of the series is just as good,first,its a show with continuty,which is rare for Adult Swim shows,so watching only a few eps like CSM has probaly done,and u wont get it,Second,all the humor is based on the problematic procedure of a typical world invasion vs superhero u dont see in other cartoons,which is very original.Funny show,go watch the spinoff The Xtacles,same stupid humor but its good.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

While it clearly intends to be "all in good fun" for older teen viewers, Frisky Dingo really isn't very funny. Some of the dialogue is quick-witted, but most of the humor is supposed to come from the show's frequent gratuitous violence, which often comes as a result of Killface and Awesome X randomly hitting, maiming, or killing their own henchpeople. The show also contains its fair share of sexual references and activity -- suffice it to say, it's part of the Adult Swim lineup for a reason.
