AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Everyone of us has got at least one irrational fear... in the case of Figaro Pho, he has them all.

'The Adventures of Figaro Pho is a series about a warm-hearted, adorable, quirky and mischievous character who just happens to be afflicted with every phobia imaginable. He's afraid of vampires, toilets, mad dogs, aliens, and being stared at by a duck!

'He's also petrified of being alone, and so Figaro has created a mechanical companion - a dog-like robot he calls Rivet.

'Figaro and Rivet live in a rundown Gothic-style mansion built precariously on a cliff above the small town of Cogville. Figaro's crumbling house is effectively a death trap containing thousands of things that he fears, and unfortunately the outside world is even more terrifying to poor Figaro.

'The outside world insists on knocking on Figaro's door, bringing all sorts of new characters and phobias into Figaro's life. On the odd occasion when Figaro finds the courage to venture down into the town, his phobias escalate even further. New faces and new places mean new fears!
