‘The Freak Brothers’ Premiers As Tubi’s First Foray Into Adult Animation

1

The streaming service Tubi launches its first exclusive adult animated series with ‘The Freak Brothers,’ a comedy series airing Sundays for a first season of eight episodes. The show is being produced by WTG Enterprises and is based on a 1960s underground “edgy” comic book.

The show’s synopsis is described as, “After smoking a magical strain of marijuana and falling asleep for 50 years, this adult animated series follows the three Freak Brothers and their sardonic cat as they adjust to life in 2020.”

Tubi said, “THE FREAK BROTHERS will headline Tubi’s first foray into adult animation, as it expands its adult humor collection in the coming months. The additional episodes from Season One will drop on Sundays, one every week, through the finale, Sunday, Dec. 26. The eight-episode series chronicles the escapades of a trio of stoner anti-establishment characters and their cat who wake up from a 50-year nap after smoking a magical strain of weed in 1969, and must adjust to life with a new family in present-day San Francisco.”

The show will also feature a stellar cast of voice actors from a variety of television shows and movies.

“Featuring an all-star voice cast that includes Woody Harrelson (“The Hunger Games” franchise, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner John Goodman (“The Big Lebowski,” “Monsters, Inc.”), Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip,” “The Lego Movie 2”) and Pete Davidson (“Saturday Night Live,” “The King of Staten Island”), the series follows laid-back Freewheelin’ Franklin Freek (Harrelson), man-child Fat Freddy Freekowtski (Goodman), paranoid Phineas T. Phreakers (Davidson) and their sardonic cat, Kitty (Haddish),” Tubi continued.

They add, “THE FREAK BROTHERS is based on comic book legend Gilbert Shelton’s ‘The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.’ Critiquing the Establishment, while satirizing counterculture at the same time, the comic sold more than 45 million copies in 16 languages and was hailed by The Comics Journal as ‘One of the 100 Greatest Comics of the Century.’ Starburns Industries and Pure Imagination Studios, the studios behind ‘Rick & Morty’ and ‘The Simpsons: Brick Like Me,’ handled the animation.”
