Dexter Douglas was a typical teenager, with the exception that he had no social life and was a computer genius. However, when trying to install a new computer chip that would make his computer run even faster, his cat accidentally walked across the keyboard and input a special code that would cause the chip to suck somebody into cyberspace. When Dexter Douglas returned from his journey into the internet, he gained the ability to freak out and become Freakazoid, a being that is capable of performing many unique feats, though Dexter’s sanity as Freakazoid isn’t the same as his human counterpart. After several events that took place on the first day of his transformation, Dexter Douglas decided to use his Freakazoid counterpart in order to fight off the forces of evil, though he often disregards his duties if there’s something better on television or if Officer Cosgrove has a fun place to hang out at.
The Lobe decides to kidnap Norm Abram in an attempt to force him to build a diabolical invention that would be capable of destroying Freakazoid once and for all. When Freakazoid learns of this, he decides to find The Lobe’s base in order to rescue the carpenter before he reluctantly completes his assignment.
