Freaky Flickers: Quest for the Golden Flicker, based on the Freaky Flickers toyline, was a CGI animated film directed, written, and animated by Cary Howe. The film detailed the adventures of Aargh the Pirate and his crew of Flickers on a quest to find the "Golden Flicker" to pay off the debt of their creator, Doc Flick.

It began in 2005 as a possible television series but later developed into a 90-minute feature film around February 2009. It was lined up for distribution to at least 2,800 cinemas by MGM. A wide, major theatrical release for this sort of film is unusual since the film was written, directed, and animated by a single person on a budget of about $250,000.

On 9 June 2009, after Howe worked all night, he left David Kann (the editor) with the film in his living room and went to sleep. He awoke just before 8pm to discover that the film, all film backups, and his film equipment had been stolen by his associate, Peter Gantner (a creator of the original toyline).

On a Cartoon Brew article about the theft a user under the name "Peter" posted a statement about the film, but this user's identity has not been identified.[1]

A PSA about recycling was discovered on Flickr [2] and an archived version of the original website can also be accessed via the Wayback Machine.[3]
