"The Freak Brothers" Cartoons

The animated TV series "The Freak Brothers" has been renewed for a second season, adapting cartoonist Gilbert Sheldon’s satirical 1960’s Rip Off comix title, now set in the modern day, starring ‘wake 'n bake' stoners, 'Freewheelin' Franklin' (Woody Harrelson), 'Phineas' (Pete Davidson), 'Fat Freddy' (John Goodman) and 'Fat Freddy's Cat' aka 'Kitty' (Tiffany Haddish), streaming December 2022 on TUBI:

 ...back in 1969 when the 'Freaks' weren’t hanging out at 'Woodstock', they were dodging 'Narcs' and steady employment. 

"But after smoking a magic strain of weed, laid-back 'Franklin', paranoid 'Phineas', man-child 'Freddy' and the sardonic 'Kitty' are 'Rip-Van-Winkled' into the future. 

"They wake up 50 years later in their renovated house, which is now owned by the 'Switzers' -- a family of ethnically diverse 'trippin’ squares'. While the tech-savvy Switzers help guide the Freaks through the rat race of a strange new world...

"...the Freaks – who are unburdened by the baggage of modern life – help the family embrace the values of a simpler time.."
