"The Freak Brothers" Cartoons

Based on "Wonder Warthog" creator Gilbert Shelton's 1960's "The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers" underground comix, the new cartoon TV series "The Freak Brothers", animated by  Starburns Industries ("Rick & Morty"), stars 'Freewheelin' Franklin' (Woody Harrelson), 'Phineas' (Pete Davidson), 'Fat Freddy' (John Goodman) and 'Fat Freddy's Cat' aka 'Kitty' (Tiffany Haddish), now available on TUBI:

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

"But after smoking a magic strain of weed, laid-back 'Franklin', paranoid 'Phineas', man-child 'Freddy', and 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.."
