Tubi recently announced its first-ever star-studded original animated series, The Freak Brothers, based on the cult classic underground comic series that documented counterculture lifestyle since the ’60s. The first two episodes are set to debut on Tubi this weekend on Sunday, November 14. Tubi shared an uncensored version of the trailer, exclusively with High Times.
On Sunday, viewers will get a sneak peek at The Freak Brothers during a special 90-second trailer airing on FOX’s Animation Domination block during Family Guy (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). Additional episodes from Season One will drop on Sundays—once every week—ending with the finale on Sunday, December 26.
The Freak Brothers features an impressive roster of voice actors including Academy Award-nominated Woody Harrelson, Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner John Goodman, Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Tiffany Haddish, Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson, as well as Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Andrea Savage, La La Anthony and Rapper ScHoolboyQ.
The Freak Brothers is the story of three fictional characters who constantly embark on pot-fueled adventures. It follows laid-back Freewheelin’ Franklin Freek (Harrelson), child-like Fat Freddy Freekowtski (Goodman), the usually paranoid Phineas T. Phreakers (Davidson) and their snarky cat Kitty (Haddish).
