Everything’s going great for Freddy and the Funkhauser family: Theodore, Wally, Curly, Ziggy, Si, and Meese — Freddy’s French fry pals who came to life thanks to Freddy’s knack for science — have helped them face up to their mean rivals, the Spankers. Trouble is, big bully Adam Spanker isn’t about to let Freddy get the upper hand. As Freddy hatches a plan to set Adam straight, he discovers the lab of long-lost scientist Silas Finklebean, along with instructions on how to build a time machine. With Finklebean’s help, Freddy and the Fries are determined to prove themselves to Adam once again.
The Gang: Freddy T. Funkhouser, science whiz kid; Howie Kapowie, his cheese-cube chowing sidekick; and Freddy’s most incredible inventions: five living, breathing French fries by day, super-powered kick-butt spuds by night!
The Plan: Use the secret plans of mysterious missing inventor Silas Finklebean to construct a time travel machine (from a pile of junk) that sweeps the annual science competition and creams Pookesville’s baddest bully, Adam Spanker, once and for all.
The Big Questions: Will Freddy’s time-warp team beat the clock before Adam’s exploding volcano project buries the Funkhouser family restaurant, the Burger Castle, in goopy purple lava? And can they finally crack the case of the long-lost Silas Finklebean?
