Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

I’ve been following this for a while on the FPI blog – a stop motion animated film of the great Gilbert Shelton’s Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers classic underground comics is in the works at the moment. John at comics blog Down the Tubes has news of a new YouTube vid ‘pilot’ of the movie which “isn’t quite finished” as we follow the Freaks on a stoned-out trip which includes glimpses of works behind the animation. I do wonder, when it is finished, if this is going to be one of those movies like Yellow Submarine which is best viewed when stoned? I posted an interview with Tony Bennett who runs Knockabout, Gilbert’s UK publisher and a man who has spent a lot of time in courts fighting censorship
