"Statuesque" is Episode 22 of Freakazoid! and the twentieth episode to air. It is the seventh episode of season 2, and aired on November 29, 1996. It was written by John P. McCann and directed by Peter Shin.
Waylon Jeepers finally harnesses the power of the Gorgons and perfects his strange and mystical watch that can turn anyone to stone. He also summons a monster, Vorn the Unspeakable, whose enemies are the enemies of he who summoned him. All of this is bad news for Freakazoid, who has gotten on Jeepers's bad side due to his constant dismissiveness, and Jeepers takes revenge by turning Steff to stone. Freak, Cogrove and Jonesy set off on a globe-trotting quest to track Jeepers down and save Steff.
