Fudêncio e Seus Amigos (partially lost Brazilian animated series; 2005-2011)
Fudêncio e Seus Amigos (lit. Fudêncio and his friends) is an adult-targeted Brazilian animated series. The series was created by Thiago Martins, Marco Pavão and Flávia Boggio for the now-extinct MTV Brasil. A total of six seasons featuring 179 episodes were produced and aired in Brazil from August 23rd, 2005 to August 25th, 2011. A movie was also planned, but never produced. 
After MTV Brasil ended in 2013, the series can only be watched through the internet, although some episodes are not available anywhere, with their existence only being known by episode lists. There are four lost episodes in Season 2, eleven episodes in Season 3, two in Season 4 and two in Season 5, totalizing nineteen lost episodes.
The second season's last episode, "Ahhtata Rabuzac", features a clip where Zé Maria exploding a bomb inside her ear. This scene is from the episode "Alma Peidada" which premiered on September 2, 2006.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The series takes place in an elementary school, featuring a group of 9-year old friends studying in a fourth grade class with a strict teacher, who often distributes "negative points" for her students. The characters include Fudêncio, a misbehaved plastic toy child, Conrado, an intelligent and savvy but extremely unlucky kakhi, Funérea, a depressed smoker goth, Zé Maria, a flamboyant trans girl, Safeno, a sick boy with several diseases, and Popoto, a mentally challenged 36-year old man who has repeated fourth grade for decades.
Although the school is the main setting, the kids have adventures in several other places, such as each other's houses and countless school trips. Usually, Conrado ends up arrested or otherwise in an unfortunate situation (often, but not always, unfairly), while Fudêncio gets the good ending, when he has done something bad or nothing at all.
