Killface is the world’s most evil villain whose mission of destroying mankind by propelling the Earth into the Sun is hampered by the boring details of media buys, personnel staffing and marketing. And then there’s Awesome X, the alter ego of billionaire playboy Xander Crews, who is more concerned with the sales of his action figure line than foiling those plans and saving the world...

Frisky Dingo, is an animated superhero / supervillain comedy which has the villain as the main character. Killface wants to destroy the Earth but, while his plans are diabolical, money always seems to be an issue. How, for example, can he communicate to mankind that he plans to destroy their planet? Having the message broadcast live across every channel simultaneously will cost a fortune... so a postcard campaign targeting a thousand households seems to be the most cost effective method for his budget.

The biggest thorn in Killface's side is superhero Awesome X (which is the secret identity of billionaire tycoon Xander Crews). Like Killface, Awesome X has financial considerations of his own. For starters he's decided to go against his board of directors and open up a manufacturing plant to create Awesome X action figures - despite the face he hasn't come up with a villain action figure to add to the range.

Throughout this first season Killface introduces us to his teenage son; Crews's TV reporter girlfriend becomes infected when she is bitten by radioactive ants; Killface loses his sight; and Crews has to constantly battle against his own troopers, known as the Xtacles, who want better pay and working conditions.

It's no surprise to learn that Frisky Dingo is produced by 70/30 Productions - the same company responsible for bringing Sealab 2021 to life. The animation and general sense of humour is pretty similar for both shows.

While the humour won't be to everyone's taste, Frisky Dingo is well worth checking out.
