1969 was – the summer of love – in San Francisco. Freewheelin’ Franklin Freak (Woody Harrelson), Fat Freddie Freykowski (John Goodman) and Phineas T. Freakers (Pete Davidson) spend their days smoking marijuana, landing babies and trampling their cat Kitty (Tiffany Hadish).
When they learn about the magic trypsin sauce that gives them the “ultimate”. The group rushes to Woodstock to find the person to give them. While they can run into some unexpected detours (like accidentally venturing into Woodstock, Georgia). The group ends up getting some of that crazy marijuana dip.
What started as a big journey quickly turned into a very, very long nap – a little over 50 years:
By the time the Freak Brothers woke up, their favourite neighbourhood was San Francisco. Which we all know: the city with the evident high cost of living in America. They’re confused by the mass of people clinging to little rectangles in their hands.

Who speak what looks like a different language, and when they’re sure that all the machines are ready to accommodate them. They rush from (and destroy) the fancy corporate party. All technical equipment and few people live with it).
Things can be scary in 2020, but it’s not all bad; marijuana is legal now, a revelation that spawns a spectacular gospel act, and the new residents of their once devastated homeland are ready to accept it – at least for the time being. Can this strange group survive in the new world? The only time that can answer.
If there’s one thing The Freak Brothers do, it’s casting; The combination of two of our favourite stars. Woody Harrelson and Pete Davidson. And with the national treasure John Goodman and superstar Tiffany Hadish. Who is perhaps one of the most inspiring celebrity voices I’ve ever seen in a minute?
There’s fun in everything that makes every scene fun, even if the script isn’t up to par, and it’s the dumb voices that keep the Freak Brothers going. While Davidson and Harrelson were easy to spot from the jump. It takes me a minute to realize what John Goodman was doing – and it was more fun.
The Freak Brothers may not have my cup of tea:
I love seeing what you do with this story, especially with exciting components like the housing crisis and police brutality. I didn’t expect The Freak Brothers to do very well on a subject like this – it’s all played for fun on a pilot basis – but there’s certainly room to go to the unexpected.
Pilots are generally tricky, and customizing IP, which has been around since the 1970s, is certainly not an easy task. But here, the potential is easy to see; even if the jokes are subdued (“LOL” and 2020’s “OMG” using millennial gimmicks feels excellent), the show is still worth watching. Just wondering how well this gang of evil people will perform in modern times – both on and off-screen.
Tiffany Hadish (surprisingly) steals the show just like Kitty and proves that it’s cute, whether you can see it or not. He takes each of his goofy lines to the next level, getting things moving and making people laugh – though some are scared – even when the other characters’ jokes don’t show up.
He’s the perfect match for our central trio, calling him for their shit one minute and teaming up with them to spread the weed the next. It’s no secret that Tiffany Hadish is a star, but concerts like this show how dynamic her talent is.
The Freak Brothers may not be suitable to watch for everyone, but they can tick the correct box for fans of great humour, basic adult animation, and insanely entertaining vocal performances.
