The comic strips, which appeared in High Times and other publications, features Freewheelin' Franklin Freak, Fat Freddy Freetkowski, Phineas T. Phreak and Fat Freddy's Cat. The characters are voiced respectively by Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Peter Davidson and Tiffany Haddish.

In the first episode (watch below), the gang visits Ryan's Reefer Factory, which spoofs Ryan Seacrest and Willy Wonka at the same time.

Harrelon posted at Instagram: "I'm really psyched to be part of the legendary comic @TheFreakBrothers. I don't know why, but this humor is right up my alley."

The sneak preview (watch below) features the stoner gang as they visit the White House and fight President Trump over a bucket of KFC. They even get the Chief Executive to smoke a joint.

Trump: "The first time I’ve ever been high and I’m the best at it."
