Freaky Flickers: Quest for the Golden Flicker, based on the Freaky Flickers toyline, was to be 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.

Production began in 2005 as a possible television series, but later developed into a 90-minute feature film around February 2009. Despite it being written, directed, and animated by a single person and only having a budget of about $250,000, it was lined up for distribution to at least 2,800 cinemas by MGM.

On 9 June 2009, after Howe worked all night, he left editor David Kann with the film in his living room and went to sleep. He awoke just before 8 pm to discover that the film, all film backups, and his film equipment had been stolen by his associate and creator of the original toyline, Peter Gantner.[1]

Aside from the trailer and two scenes from the movie's official Flickr (one being a PSA about saving energy and recycling)[2], no footage of the movie has been released, and it's unknown what Gantner did with stolen material.

How is this not technically considered a crime?

Everyone's talking about the animation but I can't get over that title. Did they seriously not think it was redundant to have the word "Flicker" in the title TWICE??

I am kinda sad about the whole situation. Sure if the film were made I'd probably not watch it but now I want it to exist.
