"The Freak Brothers": 1970s stoners adjust to the 2020s, with its drag shows, trans mechanics, and gay dudebros


The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers were a trio of stoner hippies is a series of underground comics in the 1970s.  In 2020, they spun off into an animated series.  From left to right:

1. Freddy (John Goodman), fat, frizzy blond, with a constant case of the munchies.

2. Franklin (Woody Harrelson), a tall, thin cowboy with an 11' cock, primarily into getting laid.

3. Phineas (Pete Davidson), frizzy black hair covering his whole face, into environmental and social issues

The premise: after taking some magic weed, the guys were in suspended animation for 51 years.  They awaken in 2020 San Francisco, and must adjust to cell phones, the internet, people telling you their pronouns, cancel culture, and marijuana being legal.  In San Francisco?  There must be gay characters.

I reviewed the Season 2 episode "Trans Am Trans Am."  The A and B plots are self contained, so I will keep them separate.  I'm skipping the C plot, about a marital problem in the couple that the Freaks are living with.

The A Plot: The San Francisco Grand Prix Road Race.  

Scene 1: 
Franklin hears the sound of his old trans am car, Betty.  He follows it to the Trans Trans Am Garage, and discovers that now its name is "Bernie." And it has new parts.  

"Who put in this tranny?" Franklin asks, meaning "transmission," but the mechanic, a trans woman, thinks he is insulting her.  "I transitioned five years ago."  He challenges her to a race, the trans am against the Freaks' van.  The winner gets both cars.

Since this series stars two Gemstone alums, the full review is on Righteous Gemstones Beefcake and Boyfriends
