Figaro Pho is a warm-hearted, adorable, quirky and mischievous character … who just happens to be afflicted with a multitude of weird and wonderful phobias.
These phobias range from the stock standard fear of spiders (arachnophobia) to the not-so-common fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth (arachibutyrophobia).
From the fear of bathing (ablutophobia) to the fear of the great mole rat (zemmiphobia), Figaro has them all - A to Z – and he keeps discovering more! Australian viewers can watch the series on ABC3.
“The Adventures of Figaro Pho” is a 13 x half hour high quality cgi series that takes an absurd and comedic journey through the world of a lovable character riddled with phobias.
This property is based on the shorts that were originally created for ABC TV that cleaned up at the Kidscreen 2009 awards, including Best Animation Series in The World, Best Overall Animation and Best Direction as voted on by international children’s broadcasters.
