The Adventures of Figaro Pho

About

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!

So powerful is Figaro's imagination that an entire madcap adventure can take place inside his mind in the moment when he sees something he fears. Step inside Figaro Pho's phobic world and embark upon a journey of the comedic and the bizarre.

This quirky series is the brainchild of award-winning Australian director and children's book illustrator, Luke Jurevicius, and creative consultant Deane Taylor, who is well known for his Art Direction on Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
