Radiskull and Devil Doll are an eccentric pair
of best friends in the Flash web
animation of the same name, created by Joe Sparks.
Radiskull is an enormous floating skull with
a purple mohawk that often shifts its position
on his cranium, depending on the angle at which Radiskull faces the
camera. Radiskull is a die-hard rock 'n' roll fan. He
is famous for his impromptu heavy metal performances, which are
usually preceded by his declaration, "Now it's time to kick it!"
Although he is an enthusiastic rocker, Radiskull often becomes
tired, and he spends most of his non-rocking time asleep.
Devil Doll is Radiskull's adorable little demon friend.
Despite his squeaky voice, he is a skilled rapper, also possessing
a number of useful demonic powers. He is also said to be "a hit
with the ladies." He has boundless energy, especially when it comes
to rocking, and he is often disheartened by Radiskull's narcolepsy.
Often, he provides his friend with coffee, served boiling hot, which seems to do
the trick (temporarily).
Devil Doll is romantically involved with an angel named Candy.
Seemingly star-crossed, their affair is constantly threatened.
Both Radiskull and Devil Doll reside in Hell.
The current fate of the cartoon is in question. After the
publishing of an official Radiskull & Devil Doll book in 2001,
the series ended on a cliffhanger with no explanation. Episode 8,
"Candy in Hell", was apparently the last to be produced, with the
never-shown ninth episode's script featured in the book. Joe
Sparks lost his job at Atom Shockwave during the dot-com crash of
that year and no longer had time to work on animating the
Sparks has also had his life threatened by deranged fans on more
than one occasion.

(right) in Episode One.
- Episode 1: "I am the Radiskull..." - This is
the first episode of Radiskull and Devil Doll, and it
introduces the main characters of Radiskull and Devil Doll. This is
a very short episode. As well as introducing the main characters,
it also introduces their catch phrases.
During this episode, Devil Doll offers Radiskull some coffee
with the line, "I brought you some coffee." Radiskull then asks,
"Is it boiling hot?" Devil Doll then responds, "Just how
you like it." Then Radiskull says, "Give to Radiskull." After
eating the cup with the coffee in it, Radiskull states, "Yes, now
it's time to kick it." After Devil Doll screams "Yeaaaaaaaaaaa!"
they sing the song for the episode, "I Am the Radiskull."
- Episode 2: "Hella Weenie" - This Halloween
episode consists of the "neighborhood nerd" playing tricks on
trick-or-treaters by hiding fruit underneath candy in a bowl and
handing fruit out instead of candy. Devil Doll walks up and expects
candy. When the man offers Devil Doll "a nice sweet apple, Mother
Nature's candy", Devil Doll spews fire at the apple and turns it
into a crumpled mess. The man cowers in fear at this display.
Radiskull then appears, saying, "I am the Radiskull, and I will
kill you all." He then picks on the man, ripping his shirt. The man
then runs away. Devil Doll then tells Radiskull not to look at a
sign that says "Happy Halloween". Radiskull says, "Radiskull hate
'happy'." They then proceed to come up with better words to use,
such as "bad, sad, and horrifying". Radiskull then gets tired and
Devil Doll gives him the candy. Radiskull eats the candy, the
fruit, and the bowl. Then he says, "Something bad in bowl," spits
out an apple and comments, "Radiskull hate fruit." Devil Doll
suggests that he "hit the sign". Radiskull then spits all the fruit
at the sign. After that he says "Fruit all gone, now it's time to
kick it." Devil Doll screams, "Yeaaaaaaaaaa!" and they then sing
