Official Frantics website
Accept no substitutes. Four guys from Canada who decided to use thieir super-humour powers for good rather than evil. For those who are thinking, 'Hmmm the Frantics, sounds familiar." You might be familiar with our copyrighted catch phrase, "Boot to the Head™." Also by the similarly titled sketch which as been recreated many times on YouTube. Or the kung fu sketch, which we call, "Ti Kwan Leep", that is known as boot to the head by many fans out there. You can catch hundreds of dojos performing video versions of this radio sketch, also on YouTube. We really enjoy watching them.
Reunion DVD - Is HERE!!!!
With the hit Funnyordie video“Her First Period”
Also included on the disk will be clips from the 30th Anniversary show that we performed at the Royal Theatre in Toronto in 2009. You can see clips from both events on the Vids page.

“Frantic Times” Now Available from iTunes
Yes, the very first album we ever did is now available on iTunes. And it sounds great because we did stuff to it that small children should not know about. We love this album. It contains the best bits from the first couple of years of our CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Radio show of the same name. The songs were rerecorded and made better through science.
The Frantics’ gone ‘Immortal’ on funnyordie.com
Last month to show our fans what we were up to with the new Frantics Reunion DVD coming out this October, 2011, we posted one of our favourite sketches from our 30th Anniversary show at the Royal. Well, 'Her First Period' has gone viral, hit Immortal status and has headed way past the 5,000,000 views mark! Very exciting. It's like watching the stock market. And by that we mean a good stock, not one of those crappy stocks that loses money and old people are left to eat cat food. Stay tuned.
If you haven't seen it be sure to click on the link and keep driving those views up. Thanks.
Home of Mr. Canoehead
Probably our most famous character that we have created so far is Mr. Canoehead, Canada's Aluminium-headed crime fighter. You can read up on the history of this incredible super hero.
In other news, after a hectic start to the year we're taking it a bit easy and concentrating on finally getting out projects that have been in the works for a while such as The Frantics Reunion show as described above and The Very Best of Frantic Times - more than a 1,000 bits compiled from our CBC Radio show, and The Frantics Walk Upright - the lost tapes of the final performance in 1998.
