Freak City is a Japanese-American animated 7-minute short that aired in Cartoon Premierezo. This short was later greenlited into a back-up segment for "Xeo in the Big City" which was also greenlited. Most Japanese footage from the anime, Kimba the White Lion (with recycled characters by Osamu Tezuka), were used for the short.
The series was later greenlited into a series for a spin-off of Life called Planet Earth. None of the characters return except for Viper Snakley.
Dr. Hamegg (Viper Snakely in the English dub) and Kutter (Tubby in the Englishn dub) shoot a 10-year old boy named Kevin Morris, transforming him into a mutated frog. The people of his town threw him in the sewers with the other freaks; Buzara (Gork in English dub), Bongo (Zap in English dub), Kenichi and May (WeeWee and Gorflax in English dub), Saru (Trudy in English dub) and Pagoola (Kim in English dub). The freaks don't want to do anything but just lay down and be lazy. But now, Kevin fights for their rights. But unfortunatley, Dr. Hamegg hasn't impressed his overweighted jerky boss, Dr. Plus (Duke Red in English dub) by trying to kill the Super Freak which is all of the freaks. Kevin must stop Hamegg and Kutter from killing them.
