Portfolio Entertainment Launches ‘Freaktown’

Original animated comedy series from creators Peter Ricq and Philippe Ivanusic follows the oddball adventures of skeleton Ben Bones and his friends.


Toronto, Canada -- Portfolio Entertainment is swinging the gates open to Freaktown – its new animated comedy for kids.  The 26 half hour (52 x 11) series is geared toward a 6 – 11 year old audience and is available for distribution worldwide.   Freaktown is a roller coaster ride of fun that follows the oddball adventures of skeleton Ben Bones and his friends as they try to avoid their nemesis, Princess Boo Boo of Sweetlandia, who is bent on giving them a make-over of the sweet and sassy variety.  As they battle to keep their freaky selves safe, Ben and his crew make every day awesome and every adventure freaky.        

“We are thrilled to unleash Freaktown on the market” says Joy Rosen, Portfolio’s co-founder and Co-CEO.  “This is a series that flips convention on its ear as what appears gross is really great and what’s sweet is really kind of sour.”

The series is a concept by Peter Ricq and Philippe Ivanusic who are also the creators of The League of Super Evil

Freaktown is the last place where it’s cool to be a ghoul.  Mutants and misfits of all sorts are welcome to hang out and just be who they are - freaks.  Best friends Ben Bones - a skeleton with soul - and Lenny - a mutant mantis - are living “la vida freaky” as they guard against a massive makeover of the cute and cuddly kind, courtesy of Princess Boo Boo, the spoiled brat ruler of Sweetlandia. Try as she might, Boo Boo and her right-hand bear, Lord Cuddles the Fluffy, simply can’t keep the lid on all Freaktown's fun.  You see - no one is going to sugar frost Freaktown on Ben Bones' watch!
