ABC3 will be screening The Adventures of Figaro Pho from creator/director Luke Jurevicious, who has worked with a number of broadcasters and has illustrated over 400 children’s books across a 15-year career.
Five episodes of this animated series will premiere on Halloween, October 31, from 6.45am on ABC3. The series will then screen from episode one on weekdays at 4pm from November 5 on ABC3.
An earlier series titled Figaro Pho has also screened on ABC1.
The Adventures of Figaro Pho is a 39 x 7’ 3D animated comedy series starring Figaro Pho, a quirky and mischievous character who happens to be afflicted with every phobia imaginable. Figaro is afraid of vampires, toilets, mad dogs, aliens and even being stared at by a duck!
He’s also petrified of being alone, so to combat this phobia he created a mechanical companion – a dog like robot he calls Rivet. When things don’t go to plan for Figaro, Rivet is always there to help him get out of any sticky situations.
With such an onslaught of phobias, it would appear that Figaro’s life is a complete tragedy; however, he is a creative genius and can constantly construct imaginative mechanisms and strategies to combat his phobias.
Each episode of The Adventures of Figaro Pho focuses on one key fear of Figaro’s which will take you on an emotional rollercoaster that is sometimes scary, hilarious, disgusting or surreal. Its Figaro’s powerful imagination that sets us off on adventures with monster-sized fish, oversized mosquitos and the most hideous public toilet you will ever encounter.
Step inside Figaro Pho’s absurdly phobic world and embark upon a bizarre and comedic journey.
