Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A spin-off of an MTV special telecast in December of 2002, this weekly, late-night variety series was geared to show off the comic talents of rapper Snoop Dogg. The star was seen as a number of different characters, including substitute teacher Mr. Dizzle and an abrasive fast-food worker. He also pulled off candid-camera pranks with unsuspecting pedestrians and spoofed the music videos -- and sometimes the sexual peccadilloes -- of his rival rappers. For those not inclined to laugh at Snoop, the series offered a steady stream of front-rank musical guest stars. Doggy Fizzle Televizzle premiered on June 22, 2003.
