Fred's Head Wikipedia
Fred's Head takes us in the whirlwind life of a teenager with serious reservations about the adult world. In the courses of his adventures, a multitude of eccentric characters pull him in all directions in search of his identity: among them, a psychotic psychologist, an extremely odd best friend, an exotic lady immune to his charms, fashion trends devotees, and a horror film aficionado.
This program is rated C8.
The show is noteworthy for being a show about teens and dealing with problems like alcohol and cheating without venturing into "very special episode" territory, and actually talking about them outright.
