Freak Brothers NSFW Toon Totally Misses the Mark & Defiles Original

 

The Freak Brothers cast is set. Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Tiffany Haddish and Pete Davidson lead the upcoming adult toon series from EPs Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon based on the hippie-era underground comic.

Harrelson, Goodman, Haddish and Davidson are signed for the eight-episode series, which was announced at Comic-Con last year and is being shopped to distributors. Production on the pilot is reportedly nearly complete, and work has begun on the other 22-minute episodes for a planned fall premiere.

Below is the first of four planned minisodes below— but note its decidedly NSFW nature. And its wear-a-mask admonition, Creedence cover and appearance by a tooned-up Donald Trump (guest voice John Di Domenico).

The Freak Brothers Official Mini Episode #1: Kentucky Fried Freaks (World Premiere)

 

If you like hackneyed Trump jokes, and know absolutely nothing about the original Freak Brothers, you MIGHT enjoy this. The characterizations are stale. The original Freaks were NOTORIOUSLY anti-establishment, and while the Freak Brothers comic books were political back in the day, they were politically broad. Unfortunately, today’s politics are very ugly and this kind of material is likely to alienate half the audience.

 

And what’s with the establishment reminder to wear an N95 mask at the end? Bizarre.
